Texas Stalls on Stopping Voter Fraud

Posted by |

In 2014, a Texas judge blocked former State Rep. Lon Burnam from viewing suspicious applications and ballot envelopes he claimed led to his re-election defeat.  Burnam alleged that hundreds of applications for ballot-by-mail were submitted with fraudulent electronic signatures.

The use of electronic signatures is a preferred tool of illegal vote-harvesters.  It allows them to capture hundreds of signatures on iPads under the guise of a fake “petition drive,” unrelated to any candidate election.  Then they digitally insert those signatures onto ballot by mail applications year after year, which are then faxed into the local county elections office.

Twist in General Paxton’s Case

Posted by |

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.
