Fighting for Transparency & Fiscal Responsibility in Local Government

Voters Beware – Arlington Election

Posted by |

Here are the facts of the Arlington runoff election – VOTERS BEWARE – Roxanne lost in person voting 52/48 – you know when actual human bodies show up and vote. She allegedly won mail in ballots by a massive percentage – 70/30. Now why would the mail in voters be so different from in person voters? Well her campaign finance reports will explain that. All her money went to Murphy Nasica, a firm closely tied to “questionable” local elections. Her largest donor was Linebarger – a firm with ties to almost every major public corruption scandal in Texas and tied to both Dallas and Tarrant County election fraud investigations. Mario Perez, who is Linebarger’s ground guy and a close associate of Craig Murphy, also contributed money and helped on the ground. This isn’t legitimate help folks. Aside from her reports, well known harvesters were working the ground game for Roxanne. They do not appear on her reports, so they either worked directly for Murphy, or were “loaned” by Linebarger/Mario. Marvin WON the in person votes, lost the overall by 3 votes, allegedly.

DAT, nor anyone else, will not have access to the applications and carrier envelopes to review this election until later this year. They count on this. Thankfully this is the last election in which we will not have access to the applications and carriers immediately. HB2559 has been signed into law changing that.

Until then, Arlington gets another election in which voters should have NO confidence the person sitting in the seat actually earned it.

When one lays with dogs they get fleas.

Marvin Sutton – on behalf of the concept of free and fair elections, I apologize to you that we do not have that in Tarrant County.

Phony Republicans Need Not Apply

Elections in Texas aren’t won in November, they are decided in March, and this March will see some fierce competition. Conservatives continue to escalate the war on liberals that run as Republicans in Texas simply to get elected, and conservatives continue to win big.

March may seem distant, but most 2018 Primary Election battle plans are already underway. Potential candidates are launching exploratory efforts, reaching out to donors and supporters to judge their strength. Read More

They are at it again!

Who is they? Those who provide cover to lazy, squish politicians, such as the RPT’s legal council Eric Opiela.

What are they up to again? Opiela would have you believe state lawmakers accomplished their mission of “meaningful” election reform. Those alleged reforms are the following four bills: SB 1666, HB 1735, HB 2691, Hb 4034.

What are the facts?
