BREAKING NEWS: Indictments for Voter Fraud in Nueces County

Posted by |

In a press release, Attorney General Ken Paxton announced his office’s participation in the prosecution of three Robstown residents indicted for voter fraud committed in the 2016 election cycle. Direct Action Texas (DAT) first reported on the Office of the Attorney General’s (OAG) active investigations into voter fraud in Robstown last August.  A few months later, after the November election, DAT began to research voter fraud in Robstown that took place in the 2017 municipal election. That research resulting in DAT filing 30 Election Fraud complaints. It was clear that Election Fraud was alive and well in Robstown, Texas and it continued through the Runoff Election in December of 2017. Now the harvesters may finally be brought to justice. Cynthia Kay Gonzalez, Rosita Torres Flores, and Robert Gonzalez have been indicted for nine counts of voter fraud, collectively.

New Active Voter Fraud Investigation – Nueces County

Posted by |

The Office of the Attorney General of Texas announced a third investigation in Nueces County. The Nueces County Clerk, Kara Sands, filed a complaint with the AG’s office regarding various election irregularities in the local municipal elections. Interestingly enough, similar to Tarrant County, the election which triggered the complaints was a water board election. That complaint has now resulted in three active criminal investigations.

I was honored to work alongside Nueces County Clerk Kara Sands during both the regular and special sessions on election reform bills. Kara was a pivotal stakeholder in getting SB5 and other bills through the Texas House and ultimately to be signed by the governor. She was instrumental in getting county clerks and election administrators on board for various aspects of the reforms, including the controversial repeal of the nursing home bill. She has seen first hand the results of these policies on the ground and knows how we need to secure our elections.

A news report of the most recent investigation in Nueces County can be seen HERE.

The OAG’s active investigations in Nueces County include both in person fraud as well as mail in ballot fraud.

With the passage of SB5, the addition of organized election fraud to the State RICO statute and other reforms passed this session, we are hopeful that over the next few years we can finally put an end to these types of activities.
