Andrade to resign

Fresh from the Houston Chronicle.

Texas Secretary of State Hope Andrade is resigning, effective November 23. A recent Chronicle article does not give the reason, but points to the recent controversy involving purging dead voters from the rolls (who weren’t actually dead). The Texas Secretary of State, of course, is not an elected office, so Governor Perry will simply appoint another person to the post. Andrade began serving in 2008.
