Pelosi’s latest power grab already afoot in Texas

Posted by |

Speaker Nancy Pelosi, like Democrats in Texas, is using the Wuhan Virus to make an electoral power grab.

Congressional Democrats led by Pelosi are standing in the way of a stimulus package for political advantage, demanding among other things an expansion of voting by mail for the 2020 election.

Texas Democrats, if they had the opportunity would do the same thing. Absent that opportunity they’re asking a liberal judge to legislate from the bench.

In Pelosi’s home state, Democrats have legalized ballot harvesting. It should come as no surprise that Pelosi wants to take this act nationwide.

Donald Trump, like Governor Greg Abbott before him should cut off oxygen to Democrat shenanigans perpetrated in the name of public health.

Election integrity advocates have warned against capitulating on expanding balloting by mail on the basis that 1) it’s prone to fraud, 2) it’s potentially unnecessary and 3) it’s a logistical nightmare.

Illegal Voting Conviction Upheld

Posted by |

On Thursday, an appeals court upheld the five-year prison sentence of a Texas woman convicted of illegally voting.

Crystal Mason, on parole for defrauding the federal government in a tax prep scheme, was convicted of illegally voting in the 2016 election.

Mason and her attorneys (ACLU) claim she was never told she wasn’t allowed to vote. She was.

At her initial trial, multiple letters sent to Mason’s home after her federal conviction informing her she had been removed from the voter rolls and was ineligible to vote were produced.

Additionally, the provisional ballot that Mason read and signed stated that, if she was on probation, she was ineligible to vote. Mason, who had a parole officer, signed that declaration.

How weak is the claim that she didn’t know? So weak it wasn’t made the basis of her appeal. Instead, Mason’s appeal was based on the fact that her provisional ballot wasn’t counted.

So, she broke the law but shouldn’t be punished, novel.

Houston has a problem

Houston has a problem, and its name is Diane Trautman.

This week, national attention turned to Texas as long lines at the Texas Southern University campus caused voters to wait for several hours to vote.

Hillary Clinton called the lines a poll tax. If she’s right, this poll tax was in part self-imposed and in part the fault of Diane, the Democrat County Clerk in charge of administering the election.

Early voting across Texas lasts for ten days. Lines at polling places on those days are nonexistent. Yet, turnout over those ten days equals or is less than voting on election day in many counties.

Long lines at the 11th hour are due to procrastination, not disenfranchisement.

Wisconsin Court Strikes Down List Maintenance

On Friday, an appeals court in Wisconsin struck down an attempt by the state’s election commission to remove 209,000 individuals from the voter rolls.

The 209,000 voters at issue are suspected to have moved out of the state.

Currently, Texas has tens of thousands of voters on its own rolls that are duplicates, have moved, have died, are non-citizens, or are ineligible to vote as felons.

Inaccuracies in voter roll data make it easier for maladministration and fraud to enter into elections.

FLASHBACK: Democrat Election Official Admits Noncitizens, Felons Voting

Non-citizens are voting in elections across America and leftwing activists are protecting this illegal behavior, disenfranchising legal voters.
