Those who’ve spent any considerable time talking with Tarrant County’s political insiders will likely hear about “The Fort Worth Way.” They will tell you that’s how elections are won and lost in the city “where the west begins.” Everyone who is anyone in Fort Worth politics knows the game and how it’s played. Most of them have been playing it for years and – in some cases – decades. The simple truth is, “The Fort Worth Way” is election fraud. It runs as deep as the Trinity, and it’s just as dirty.
UPDATE: District Attorney Sharen Wilson and I just spoke. She was not aware of what her staff had done. I’ve been promised the data for $1. I have full confidence that Sharen will address this matter. We discussed the problem that it happened in the first place, she promised to address it and I believe she will. Thank you Sharen.
Over the last year Direct Action Texas has been doing a lot of research into elections in Tarrant County. In doing so we have ordered copies of Applications for Ballot by Mail and copies of ballot carrier envelopes many times. For example we started this journey looking into the TRWD race, which had 6,000 mail in ballots. I received all of them for $1.
This week I ordered the same thing I have in the past, except for the republican primary election in House District 99. This race had only 1,267 mail in ballots. I received a response, not from Tarrant Elections, but the District Attorney’s office. According to Sharen Wilson’s office that data is worth $64,815.66! I found the $64,815 Question!
BREAKING NEWS: Investigators from the Office of the Attorney General are on the ground in Fort Worth interviewing voters this week. Sources have spotted them in different parts of Fort Worth implying this is a large scale investigation.
Conservatives are the bull’s-eye of weaponized government. Nowhere was this more apparent than Lois Lerner’s deliberate attacks on Tea Party groups. Until now, the full force of the so-called Texas Ethics Commission was a well-used weapon in that governmental arsenal. Their latest misfire against Empower Texans will change that fact. The commissioners themselves are now targets of some serious scrutiny and legal action from the very group they tried to attack.
Michael Quinn Sullivan, founder of Empower Texans puts it this way, “Our lawsuit will hold these commissioners personally liable for their unconstitutional actions. They tried to use us as an excuse to silence all Texans, and instead we will use them as a warning to anyone in power who tries to abuse the public trust. Don’t mess with Texans’ constitutional rights.”
