Dallas Mail In Ballot Arrest – What Happened?

Posted by |

Last year Dallas made tons of headlines and nightly news reports with voter fraud stories tied to their city council races. At one point Dallas elections claimed they were investigating over 1,200 ballots – in a city council race! Dallas District Attorney, Faith Johnson, came out and promised to prosecute these crimes aggressively.  The stories were great, with undercover audio recordings, leading to a man being arrested.

The man arrested is Miguel Hernandez, who allegedly forged ballots under the fake name of Jose Rodriguez. Dallas arrested him for having forged 766 ballots. Faith Johnson and Ken Paxton even held a press conference to tell us how serious Dallas was about the issue.

YET HERE WE ARE and year later and nothing has happened.

Faith Johnson put an assistant district attorney by the name of Andy Chatham in charge of the voter fraud cases. From the beginning Chatham has been hostile and non communicative to anyone involved or anyone offering help. If you attempted to get an update on the case…nothing.

At one point a different law enforcement agency offered to assist, pointing out that given the current DA race in Dallas, that office is conflicted in the case. Chatham stated it would be a cold day in hell before he allowed any other agency in to help.

That made me think – why is Chatham not acting? Why is Chatham hostile to help? I decided to do some digging. You see Chatham ran for judge as a democrat in 2014.

Immediately upon review of Chatham finance reports I find he hired none other than Terri Hodge as his consultant!! He paid her a hefty $2,500…now everyone knows Hodge’s only expertise is harvesting mail in ballots. Several other names on Chatham’s report pop out as known harvesters to DAT. It immediately became clear to me why the Dallas case, one of the most clean cut cases we’ve seen, has gone no where. Where is Faith on this issue? In just the last few days it appears the case was assigned away from Chatham…after more than a year.

Dallas voters should be asking Faith Johnson for accountability on this case. Why did she assign the case to a man clearly conflicted in this matter? Why has she let this case sit stagnant? What is she doing to ensure the integrity of our elections?

Lack of prosecution is why election fraud continues to occur. Where are you Faith?

Voter Fraud Is Not Real…Haven’t You Heard?

Posted by |

How many times have you heard concerns of voter fraud be dismissed by politicians, media pundits, or the Democrat Party of Texas?

In 2012, the Donna ISD school board president hung himself after the FBI pressed for an indictment on grounds that he stole his election using fraud.[1]

In 2015, six people were convicted of felony voter fraud in Hildalgo County, Texas for harvesting mail in ballots fraudulently in several local elections.[2]

In the 2016 Republican primary in Hill County, Texas, election officials claimed 9,038 ballots were cast, yet only 7,171 voters actually voted in that election.[3] There were 1,800 votes counted with no voters to go with them, and on that very ballot three races were determined by less that 70 votes.

In 2017, Rosa Ortega (a legal resident) was convicted and sentenced to 8 years in Tarrant County, Texas after she illegally voted for 10 years, although she is not a citizen of the US.[4] The very same year, an Ellis County, Texas constable was removed from office and convicted for having stolen his election using fraud.[5]

In 2018, Tarrant County convicted a felon of illegal voting after she intentionally voted after having been told, in writing, she was not eligible to do so.[6] Just  last week, a judge ordered a new election in Kaufman County, Texas after it was shown in court that fraudulent ballots were improperly counted.[7] I could continue, the list is long – and these are just Texas.

DAT Files Judicial Complaint Against Kimberly Fitzpatrick

Posted by |

Today Direct Action Texas filed a complaint with the State Commission on Judicial Conduct against Kimberly Fitzpatrick. This is the body which oversees both judges as well as judicial candidates.

Judicial candidates and judges are to abide by Canons of judicial conduct. They can be found HERE. Canon 5(2) reads: “A judge or judicial candidate shall not authorize the public use of his or her name endorsing another candidate for any public office”. Fitzpatrick has endorsed a candidate in a congressional race (whom I support as well) appearing on the same ballot with her in the primary and again in the runoff election.  Let’s be clear, Ron Wright, as a congressional candidate, has not committed a violation and has no reason to know the law for judicial candidates, rather it is Fitzpatrick who cannot give out her endorsement to others. Fitzpatrick touts her 8 years as an attorney and her legal prowess yet doesn’t seem to understand basic judicial ethics Canons. Read More

McKinney – The Face of Government Creep

Posted by |

One of the biggest lies elected officials believe is that their number one job is to represent their constituents, whomever they believe those constituents to be. This is a fallacy. The most overly represented crowd these days are the “easily triggered”. Enter the City of McKinney and it’s city council.

In October of 2017 the city passed an ordinance banning electioneering in the city except in their “Designated Area for Electioneering”. Electioneering is the simple act of talking to someone about the upcoming or current election. The council said they had to pass this ordinance in order to allow people to go vote without having to engage campaigns on their way in. The mayor actually stated he believes people have this right – although he never sourced where that right came from. The right to seek political redress of our government is a fundamentally ‘all American’ value, but McKinney city council members believe it is their job to respond to the easily triggered over protecting the right to engage in political speech.

Post Primaries…Now What?

Posted by |

With the Primaries in the rear view mirror, Direct Action Texas’ work has kicked into high gear. As Texas’ only organization with proven results in finding election fraud, our phones and email have been busy with tips and information about election discrepancies and nefarious activity.

It might surprise you to learn a good number of the leads we’ve received have come from two state agencies. These two agencies have gotten information and/or seen evidence they believe points to election fraud. To whom do they turn to handle such serious allegations? Direct Action Texas. We are the only ones these agencies can rely on to actually investigate and file formal complaints. One of the biggest misconceptions the public has regarding elections is believing that there is some government agency which ensures they’re conducted fairly.

There simply is no one with that job. The state has turned to us for help. We’re honored and happy to oblige.

The sheer number of tips we received forces us to work through them quickly and prioritize those where fraud is verifiable and prosecution is possible. Currently we are looking at primaries in just over 30 counties. Here are two examples of types of investigations we’re pursuing:

  • Once again we found ourselves in East Texas, this time in Gregg County, where mail-in ballots appear to have been compromised. We’ve found major red flags in the Commissioner Precinct 4 race, findings law enforcement is going to be extremely interested in learning about. We will be making our criminal complaint public in the coming weeks.
  • Last week we published a video of a harvester working a nursing home in Harris County. If you have not watched that video, you need to see what harvesting in action looks like – SEE IT HERE. State Rep. Harold Dutton is already out denying the video…oddly enough before anyone publicly blamed him.  DAT has more videos and is investigating this case as well, stay tuned for updates soon.

From the Texas Panhandle to the border, we have counties with voting irregularities, each distinct in nature. Digging into these elections is long and tedious as there’s significant delay in simply getting the information from each county. After the election, by statute, it can take up to 30 days for counties to provide certain election information. We can not begin analyzing the results until we have received all the information. With over 30 counties we are tracking, just getting the election data in-house is chore. Then the real work on sifting through the begins.

We expect to have as many as a half a dozen criminal complaints from this primary. It could be more, depending on what we find. Mail-in ballot fraud is a real, as is vote harvesting, both of which are wide-spread problems in Texas. One would think the legislature would allocate the resources necessary to  ensure the integrity of our elections.

Until they do, you’ll find DAT digging through the evidence. Stay tuned for updates.
