Troubling Audit Further Impacting Voter Rolls?

Posted by |

In the fall of 2018 Direct Action Texas called on Governor Greg Abbott to ensure ineligible individuals were removed from Texas’ voter roll.

At the time, there were reportedly over 280,000 non-citizens potentially registered to vote. However, based on a December audit of the Department of Public Safety’s driver’s licenses division, that number could be higher.

According to the State Auditor’s office drivers licenses in Texas are being issued without proper information and supporting documentation.

Committee Report Calls for Action

Posted by |

Following the 2017 legislative session, Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick formed the Select Committee on Election Security to examine shortcomings in our election system.

In early December the committee issued a report detailing an uptick in fraud investigations and prosecutions before calling for specific actions.

According to the report, in 2018 the Attorney General’s elections division resolved 97 cases of election fraud through prosecutions. This figure includes convictions, deferred adjudications, and diversion with a stipulation of guilt.

In addition, the AG’s office has a backlog of 63 open investigations, with 59 election fraud offenses pending prosecution. This caseload represents a significant increase at a time when Texans are being told voter fraud doesn’t exist.

Stats and figures in the report were accompanied by anecdotes.

Direct Action Texas Announces Executive Director and Key Promotion

Posted by |

Direct Action Texas is pleased to announce the hiring of Daniel Greer and the promotion of Christine Welborn.

Daniel joins Direct Action Texas to serve as Executive Director after running a nonprofit focused on money in politics and operating a political research firm. Daniel has served in several capacities in and around the Texas conservative movement since 2006.

Christine Welborn, a crucial part of Direct Action Texas’ success to date, is being promoted to Director of Election Integrity.

Christine’s promotion is long due and well deserved. Tracking down and exposing election fraud in Texas for 3 years, Christine is a go-to resource for identifying fraudulent behavior in elections.

“I don’t know where we would be without Christine, and I’m proud to have worked closely with her for over 4 years,” said Aaron Harris.

Direct Action Texas congratulates outgoing Executive Director Aaron Harris on his role as Chief of Staff to incoming U.S. Congressman Lance Gooden. Harris will move to an advisory position on the Board of Directors.

“We’re entering 2019 with an energized team and a growing number of Texans concerned with and focused on election integrity.”

Onward.

 

Tarrant – Cronyism Embodied

Posted by |

It takes a close look, and “inside baseball” knowledge, to see and understand what government cronyism and corruption looks like. Let me give you an example which happened recently in Tarrant County.

Recently Tarrant County Judge Glen Whitley brought a company named Integer to the table. Integer sells a service rating and increasing efficiency in the healthcare arena. The thing is, the Judge brought them in and asked they be given a no-bid contract to evaluate Tarrant County’s needs which would lead to an ongoing multi million dollar contract.

Voter Fraud UPDATE

Posted by |

Last night WFAA ran this great piece – it is a must watch for all Texas voters. WATCH HERE

I am frequently asked for updates on the various election fraud investigations which Direct Action Texas has triggered. The fact is, there is very little to update as the investigations are ongoing and we can’t add to what we’ve previously stated publicly.

Over the last 2 years I have investigated 5 counties, all leading to active criminal investigations. I have more experience in election and voter fraud than any other person or organization in Texas and nationally. I bring a unique perspective and experience level to any commission on election integrity.

Tarrant County, TX​​​​​​​​
2015-Current

  • Led an investigation starting in June of 2015, into what is now the largest voter fraud investigation the State of Texas has seen. Both Governor Abbott and Att. Gen. Paxton have tweeted about the scope of this investigation.
  • Uncovered an organized group that has stolen elections over multiple years.
  • Documented a stolen State House seat, stolen city council seats and others.
  • DNA evidence has been sought and obtained. (First case of DNA being used in election fraud case in Texas.)
  • Discovered just over 28,000 harvested mail-in ballots in 24-month period.
  • County elections administrator resigned in shame.
  • After we went public with the fraud, the May 6, 2017 election shows little to no vote harvesting – we put an end to it. Unable to harvest mail in ballots, those responsible lost their elections.
  • Texas Attorney General has an active ongoing criminal investigation.

Hill County, TX​​​​​​​​​
2016-Current

Jan. 2017-Current
