Hollins, the Hack in Harris County
The liberal hack running Harris County elections is doing his dead-level-best to have droves of Texans break election law. In his radical fervor, he might be undermining participation in the 2020 election.
An early afternoon announcement yesterday from Harris County stated applications to vote by mail will be sent to all registered voters next month.
In addition, to being a waste of taxpayer dollars, this maneuver (if it’s not halted) ensures voters who are ineligible to vote by mail will apply to vote by mail.
This needs to be stopped now by Governor Abbott.
Ahead of the July primary run-off election, the interim County Clerk Chris Hollins, an Obama admin alumnus, sent applications for mail-in ballots to all registered voters older than 65. These voters are qualified without exception to apply for a mail-in ballot.
This should have been opposed as well but was allowed and it was the thin end of the wedge. Now Hollins, after reportedly being encouraged by the increase in mail voting from his primary run-off gambit is going full bore to destabilize and delegitimize the election.
In addition to the increased likelihood of illegal voting by mail spurred by Hollins, this push will likely disenfranchise voters, since many in Harris county are or may be displaced by hurricanes now and in the coming months. Not to mention the strain on the USPS from a sudden crush of ballots.
Hollins and his staff, even before their latest stunt, have worked hard to confuse voters, posting convoluted legalese guidance about eligibility to vote by mail on the Harris County website.
The Texas Supreme Court ruled earlier this year that a lack of immunity to COVID19 is NOT in and of itself a valid excuse apply for a mail-in ballot. A person who applies to vote by mail as disabled must actually be disabled. This is simple.
Here’s how Hollins misleads on the topic of voting by mail during COVID, “The Texas Supreme Court has ruled that lack of immunity to COVID-19 can be considered as a factor in your decision as to whether voting in person” an intro is likely to confuse a lay-individual, which appears to be the point.
Hollins’ adminsitration of this election is an affront to election integrity.
