The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit unanimously ruled to block the lower court’s order to allow anyone in Texas to vote by mail. It ruled against citizens illegally voting by mail under the provision for disabled voters. The Court dismissed the idea that fear of contracting COVID-19 is a valid disability. The argument for the need for mail-in balloting loses more and more strength as Texas reopens without giant spikes in COVID-19 cases.
“I applaud the Fifth Circuit for staying the federal court’s erroneous decision and preventing widespread mail-in balloting while the case proceeds. Allowing universal mail-in ballots, which are particularly vulnerable to fraud, would only lead to greater election fraud and disenfranchise lawful voters,” said Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. “The unanimous Fifth Circuit ruling puts a stop to this blatant violation of Texas law.”
Yesterday, the Tarrant County Republican Party filed a motion for leave and an amicus brief with the Fifth Circuit Court.
“I am pleased to announce that the Tarrant County Republican Party has filed briefing in federal court opposing the Democrat Party’s attempt to hijack our elections by expanding the vote by mail program in Texas. While we support voting by mail for those who truly need it, there are those who have used the system to commit voter fraud,” said Tarrant GOP Chairman Rick Barnes.
In a press release the Tarrant GOP stated that their concerns with mail-in voting stem from cases of voter fraud uncovered in Tarrant County “reminiscent of organized crime.”
“The Tarrant GOP stands to protect free and fair elections for all voters, and we will not tolerate the abuse of a well-intended system to steal elections,” Barnes concluded.
