Ross Kecseg with Empower Texans wrote a great piece about the structural challenges to cleaning up mail in ballot fraud. NO ONE has the job of ensuring mail in ballot integrity. Read his piece below:
The case against Attorney General Ken Paxton is complicated and nebulous at best.
The circumstances around the case are outright shady.
One of the questionable issues surrounding the case is the arrangement made with the special prosecutors just prior to Judge Oldner recusing himself from the case. Oldner entered into a pay structure agreement which is way beyond the Collin County rates, potentially leaving taxpayers on the hook for millions of dollars.
A Collin County taxpayer has sued challenging the ability to pay beyond the County’s rates, and this week the 5th Court of Appeals issued a stay in any further invoices to the special prosecutors pending the challenge to the pay structure.
This is a good thing for Collin County taxpayers. This is a good thing for process.

3rd ELECTION COMPLAINT FILED WITH TEXAS SECRETARY OF STATE BY DIRECT ACTION TEXAS
Direct Action Texas finds election irregularities in Harrison County Texas – files complaint with the Texas Secretary of State
NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, TEXAS (January 31, 2017) — Yesterday Direct Action Texas (DAT) filed a formal complaint with the Texas Secretary of State’s elections division regarding voting irregularities in Harrison County, Texas (Marshall, Texas). In a limited review of mail in ballots from various elections over the last calendar year, DAT found at least 42 election code violations. It is clear from the evidence that, similar to Tarrant County, there appears to be an illegal, mail in ballot harvesting operation in Harrison County. DAT has compiled the evidence through a variety of sources, including documents obtained via Open Record Requests. We have submitted the evidence in our formal complaint filed yesterday.
Over the last year, Direct Action Texas has filed two previous election violation complaints, one in Tarrant County and one in Hill County. The Hill County complaint has resulted in the impoundment of the March 1, 2016 Republican Primary ballots and associated equipment as well as an unprecedented recount as part of an ongoing criminal investigation, which occurred on November 9, 2016. The Tarrant County complaint has resulted in what has been described as the largest voter fraud investigation in Texas, as acknowledged by the Governor, Attorney General, and several news outlets. Both cases are still currently under investigation.

Earlier this week in Hill County, State District Court Judge Lee Harris ordered a public recount at the request of investigators from the Attorney General’s office. It took place this past Wednesday, November 9th, just a day after many Texans went to the polls to cast their ballot for President. The recount is part of an ongoing investigation into potential criminal activity during the March 2016 Primary Election in Hill County.
This coming Monday night, October 17th, for the first time publicly, I’ll be presenting what has been going on in Tarrant County relative to voter fraud.
The downtown crowd, like County Judge Glen Whitley, Mayor Price, and others, would have you believe all is well, there is nothing to see here — move along. Interestingly enough, they say this all the while never having seen, nor inquired about, the evidence. In typical fashion they are circling the wagons, but this time the evidence is just too overwhelming. The fact that they have shown no interest in understanding or fixing the problem should be problematic to all Tarrant County residents. Read More
