Post Primaries…Now What?

Posted by |

With the Primaries in the rear view mirror, Direct Action Texas’ work has kicked into high gear. As Texas’ only organization with proven results in finding election fraud, our phones and email have been busy with tips and information about election discrepancies and nefarious activity.

It might surprise you to learn a good number of the leads we’ve received have come from two state agencies. These two agencies have gotten information and/or seen evidence they believe points to election fraud. To whom do they turn to handle such serious allegations? Direct Action Texas. We are the only ones these agencies can rely on to actually investigate and file formal complaints. One of the biggest misconceptions the public has regarding elections is believing that there is some government agency which ensures they’re conducted fairly.

There simply is no one with that job. The state has turned to us for help. We’re honored and happy to oblige.

The sheer number of tips we received forces us to work through them quickly and prioritize those where fraud is verifiable and prosecution is possible. Currently we are looking at primaries in just over 30 counties. Here are two examples of types of investigations we’re pursuing:

  • Once again we found ourselves in East Texas, this time in Gregg County, where mail-in ballots appear to have been compromised. We’ve found major red flags in the Commissioner Precinct 4 race, findings law enforcement is going to be extremely interested in learning about. We will be making our criminal complaint public in the coming weeks.
  • Last week we published a video of a harvester working a nursing home in Harris County. If you have not watched that video, you need to see what harvesting in action looks like – SEE IT HERE. State Rep. Harold Dutton is already out denying the video…oddly enough before anyone publicly blamed him.  DAT has more videos and is investigating this case as well, stay tuned for updates soon.

From the Texas Panhandle to the border, we have counties with voting irregularities, each distinct in nature. Digging into these elections is long and tedious as there’s significant delay in simply getting the information from each county. After the election, by statute, it can take up to 30 days for counties to provide certain election information. We can not begin analyzing the results until we have received all the information. With over 30 counties we are tracking, just getting the election data in-house is chore. Then the real work on sifting through the begins.

We expect to have as many as a half a dozen criminal complaints from this primary. It could be more, depending on what we find. Mail-in ballot fraud is a real, as is vote harvesting, both of which are wide-spread problems in Texas. One would think the legislature would allocate the resources necessary to  ensure the integrity of our elections.

Until they do, you’ll find DAT digging through the evidence. Stay tuned for updates.

 

Bipartisan Support for HB 2139

Posted by |

Due to the magnitude of the fraud Direct Action Texas has uncovered over the last 2 years, we have been calling for sensible reforms to come out of Austin. One of these is a bill authored by Representative Mike Schofield (R-Katy). House Bill 2139 would allow prosecutors to treat organized election fraud activity the same way it would treat other forms of organized crime, raising each penalty level one degree. Testimonies given in the House Committee on Elections revealed overwhelming bipartisan support.

Missouri Takes Action Against Voter Fraud

Posted by |

Stealing votes through mail-in ballot harvesting is not unique to Tarrant County, or even Texas.  Last fall, a harvesting scheme was uncovered in St. Louis, Missouri.  Candidate for State Rep. Bruce Franks, Jr. was the victim of this type of fraud in his race against incumbent State Rep.  Penny Hubbard.  Numerous ballots were found to be fraudulent.  His race was stolen.

Election Code Loopholes Hurt Candidates: And Help Harvesters

Posted by |

Imagine you are a candidate for office.  The votes are in and you are just 50 votes short of victory.  Your race was fiercely competitive and you suspect fraud in the results.  You requested a recount already, it came out with the same results.  If there is fraud, it must be in the mail-in ballots.  What do you do?

Contesting an election is costly and time consuming so a candidate needs all the information possible to determine if he or she should proceed.  One of the first things a candidate will want to see are the mail in ballots and applications.  (For reasoning behind this: The Fort Worth Way)  This sounds like a reasonable request, right?  Not so fast.  There are a few pieces of the Election Code blocking the way.

Fort Worth Election Fraud

The Fort Worth Way: Election Fraud is Taking Place and It Must be Stopped

Posted by |

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.
