Arrests in Tarrant County

Posted by |

The Office of the Attorney General of Texas has made 4 arrests for organized voter fraud in North Fort Worth. Direct Action Texas first went public with the Tarrant County voter fraud activity in October 2016. 3 years ago, this month, DAT filed its first complaint with the OAG regarding ballot harvesting in Tarrant County. With this case we can hope that while the wheels of justice turn very slowly, they appear to be turning none the less.

The indictments include Leticia Sanchez (16 counts), Leticia Sanchez Tepichin (10 counts / 1st Leticia’s daughter), Maria Solis (two counts) and Laura Parra (one count). The indictments are all from elections in 2016 – the democrat primary and the Fort Worth Charter election. Of note is the absence of indictments from the 2015 TRWD election. The absence of those is due to the fact that Tarrant County shredded all the applications and carriers from that election after learning we were investigating it, but prior to the AG sending a retention letter.  According to storage records we have obtained, Tarrant County has those records in storage for every election back to 2010, except the 2015 TRWD race. 

Sanchez, Tepichin, Solis, and Parra are all female Hispanic canvassers who work in what is called “ballot harvesting” operations. D Magazine explained how ballot harvesting works in an article last year which featured our work in exposing it.

Does JPS Have a Plug-Pulling Problem?

Posted by |

A medical director at Tarrant County’s John Peter Smith Hospital has allegedly been pulling the plug on patients she deems worthy of death, without family consent or an ethics panel decision, in violation of state law. Sources tell Direct Action Texas there are numerous patients who have fallen victim to this doctor’s plug-pulling habit in the past year.

State statute outlines a clear process for hospitals to follow for end of life decisions. There are three ways to legally terminate care.

  • Have the family (guardian) grant consent. This is the most difficult decision a family member can face.
  • In the absence of family consent, an ethics panel of medical professionals must make the decision. This is a 12-day process. The family must first be notified 48 hours prior to the panel convening. Then, if the panel decides to terminate care, the family must be given a 10-day notice before the decision is carried out.
  • A doctor can terminate care if they determine the patient to be medically “brain dead.” This is a slippery slope as the medical community does not have a clear consensus on the definition of brain dead. There are, however, several tests that can be used to make this diagnosis.

Sources have told Direct Action Texas that patient’s lives have been ended without family consent, a decision of the ethics panel, or any testing to determine the patient was brain dead or any indication of that assertion. This doctor is allegedly skipping all three steps and taking it upon herself to make the final decision to pull the plug. Read More

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

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.

 

Election Fraud – See the Video!

Posted by |

The media and others will tell you constantly, “There is no election fraud”. However to anyone paying attention, it is more like a headline a day of voter fraud investigations.

Today we learned from an article in the Dallas Morning News that the Dallas District Attorney is investigating 1,200 applications for ballot by mail for this month’s primary, but the applications, in many cases, were filled out last year. This is the same area where there is an ongoing criminal investigation into vote harvesting.

Now comes this: Direct Action Texas received a video of a worker harvesting a ballot for Harold Dutton in last week’s Democrat primary. The video (below) shows a worker approaching a voter with that voter’s ballot in hand. The worker appears to have a stack of ballots in her hand. She clearly identifies herself with the Harold Dutton campaign, and proceeds to instruct the voter to check the box for Dutton and sign, and then she leaves with the ballot.
