*Not actual scene at Hill County

Yesterday the State of Texas impounded the ballots and other election equipment from Hill County’s March 1st primary election.

 
Direct Action Texas has been at the forefront of the Hill County primary fiasco. (See original article HERE and HERE.) Hill County Elections and the Republican Party of Hill County would have you believe there is nothing to see and that everything has been resolved. The fact is they have publicly admitted the published results are incorrect. (See press release HERE.) What we see in Hill County is an attempt to sweep this entire debacle under the rug. They were not counting on a watchful citizenry. Read More

Sullivan: “Don’t mess with Texans’ constitutional rights.”

donttargetmeConservatives 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.”

ByronCookIf you’ve been paying any amount of attention you know that folks in Hill County are anything but competent at running their elections. To date, no one can actually tell us what the results of the election were, and each time someone attempts to calculate the figure, more questions are raised than are answered.

I’ve learned a lot through this experience.

For starters, I’ve learned that no one is watching. No one is double-checking election results. No one is holding election administrators accountable. No one is ensuring election integrity. No one is watching county chairs.

How Many Missing Voters Is Too Many?

Earlier this summer Direct Action Texas looked into several of the March 1st Republican Primary races. Hill County’s election quickly garnered our attention.

We found that 19.29% of their official election results did NOT have voters to go along with the alleged votes. It is a basic principle that for every vote cast there must be one voter to match up with said vote. In the case of Hill County, they posted 9,038 votes having been cast, yet their official election file only had 7,518 voters marked as having voted, but it gets better. Read More
