Don Huffines Teams up with DAT to Fight Voter Fraud

Posted by |

DALLAS, TX — Today Don Huffines announced he’s partnering with election integrity watchdog Direct Action Texas (DAT) to stop voter fraud in the DFW area.

Voter fraud is taking place, but it has no place in Texas.

“I take seriously finding and prosecuting voter fraud from the lowest level operators harvesting ballots to elected officials empowering the illegal behavior.”

Huffines has a history of combating voter fraud in Texas. As a member of the Texas Senate, he called for rigorous checking of voter rolls and served on the Senate Select Committee on Election Security.

Since 2015, DAT has developed a track record of discovering, investigating, and handing over actionable cases of voter fraud to law enforcement officials.

If you suspect voter fraud call toll-free at 1-877-267-8683 or email tips@directactiontx.com.

Don Huffines is offering a $5000 reward to anyone who calls in to the tip line or sends an email with information leading to a criminal conviction. 

Your information will be kept in confidence.

“Elections have to be run fairly and free of fraud or our system of governance is doomed.”

ALERT: Critical GOP Expulsions Reported

Posted by |

As the first week of early voting came to a close, reports of the systematic firing of key Republican election workers began to mount.

Dallas County was the site of the first reports of GOP election workers being fired for not wearing facemasks.

Guidance from the Secretary of State’s office states that, while mask usage is encouraged, it is not mandatory.

Expelling election workers for not donning a mask so far appears to disenfranchise and disproportionately harm the Republican Party.

Additional complaints from workers being expelled from overseeing this contentious election have emanated from Comal and Williamson county.

If you have been fired from your position as an election judge or poll watcher, send us an email at tips@directactiontx.com.

Tight Margins Highlight Danger of Voter Fraud Ignored

Posted by |

One fraudulent vote is one too many.

The left for years has slavishly peddled the talking point that voter fraud either doesn’t exist or is so small a problem it should be ignored.

Conservatives are routinely derided for calling attention to the issue of election integrity and voter fraud. This derision is an unjust, cynical chastizement in service of the narrative.

This week, the Texas Attorney General’s office announced the arrest of a Carrolton man, Zul Mirza Mohamed, running for mayor for mail-in vote fraud.

Caught red-handed, Mohamed was charged with 25 counts of unlawful possession of a ballot and 84 counts of fraudulent use of a mail ballot application.

With several elections in 2020 anticipated to be close, even on the low side, 84 ballots fraudulently requested could swing an election.

In 2018, two seats in the Texas House could have been flipped with this many ballots, HD 132 gained by Democrats by a margin of 87 votes, and HD 138 which Republicans held by 47 votes.

Keep in mind this was the alleged ham-handed effort of just one man. If you put a harvesting team in the field, which exists in the DFW area and other parts of the state and it’s easy to envision more in reach seats falling.

For instance, House District 108 held by Republicans in 2018 by 220 or House District 66 was held by Republicans in 2018 by 391 votes could fall with a group of three harvesters.

Mail-in voter fraud, a proven tactic is being prosecuted at a higher clip in 2020 thanks to the efforts of the lawmakers in 2017 and the passage of SB 5.

Unfortunately, Governor Abbott did not prioritize election integrity during 2019, opening Texas’ election to further and avoidable abuse.

Staty tuned.

Time to Protect Texas Elections

Posted by |

Secretary of State Ruth Hughes and by extension her boss, Governor Greg Abbott is tasked with protecting Texas elections. A case can be made that both are failing to do their job.

With just 44 days till the election, there is a slew of election rules multiple elections officials are preparing to violate under the guise of “keeping voters safe.”

Unfortunately, these violations aren’t likely to increase safety, may lead to the disenfranchisement of voters, and will lead to lower trust in the final results.

Let’s examine just three items that can and must be remedied by the Governor and his Secretary of State and preview a possible fourth side-effect of inaction.

Limit Curbside Voting

Multiple counties are planning to expand curbside voting, including collecting mail-in ballots curbside.

For instance, in an interview with VICE News that aired on September 16, Chris Hollins outlined his plan to implement mass drive-thru voting in Harris County.

Drive-thru voting is not afforded to the election administrators (or clerks) in Texas law and according to health officials will not lower the risk of COVID19 transmission. In fact, the practice may increase the risk of spread.

Curbside voting is meant to be limited and reserved to individuals who are unable to safely enter the polling place to vote in person. Hollins is nakedly breaking the law.

In Travis County, Dana DeBeauvoir is planning to expand in-person drop-off of mail-in ballots with drive-thru centers two weeks before the start of early voting.

This perversion of the rule of law is made possible by Governor Abbott and an executive order he issued expanding in-person mail-in ballot drop off options. Failure to amend the order and stop illegal activity is squarely on Abbott.

2020 Election Lawsuit Update

Posted by |

Late Friday, Attorney General Ken Paxton announced he would be appealing yet another lower court decision green-lighting Democrat election shenanigans.

This is the latest legal maneuver in a week that saw several developments; let’s walk through them in turn, start with the good, working our way to the ugly.

5th Circuit upholds current Texas election law

On Thursday, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Texas election law, as it pertains to balloting by mail eligibility, should remain unchanged.

The argument presented in this case and rejected is that allowing voting by mail universally for those 65 and older but not younger voters constitutes age discrimination.

Texas election law for mail-in balloting has been unchanged and unchallenged for years. It’s just now, ahead of a competitive election, that novel legal arguments are being lobbed at an increasingly distrusted system.

This ruling will likely be appealed to the Supreme Court but faces long odds of success. The court has already denied the case fast track status, and the election is just weeks away from early voting.

Hack Sandill rules for buddy Hollins

On Friday, R.K. Sandill ruled Harris County could mail applications to vote by mail to all its 2.4 million registered voters. That ruling has been appealed. The state accurately argued that mailing ballots to every voter would induce illegal applications.

Chris Hollins, the interim Harris County Clerk, is running roughshod over election law and misleading voters to apply for mail-in ballots, potentially disenfranchising thousands of voters in the process.

Sandill, a hack jurist, suggested in part that the state is being inconsistent since it did not sue to stop the mailing of applications to voters 65 and older ahead of the primary run-off. Lesson learned, don’t give an inch and remember Greg; these radicals aren’t playing ball.

Of course, the mailing incoherently cited by Sandill exposed zero voters to the likelihood of committing a crime since all voters 65, and older are qualified under the law to vote by mail. Hollin’s latest stunt appears aimed at getting non-qualified individuals to register for a mail-in ballot.

Harris County, under the watch of Hollins, has published misleading materials about who is qualified to vote by mail, almost assuredly resulting in healthy and, therefore, non-qualifying voters applying to vote by mail.

A sudden surge in voting by mail will bog down the voting process, especially the tabulation of votes on election day, a delay that may lead to increased distrust of the election result.

According to a review of campaign finance reports, Judge Sandill has received multiple political contributions from Hollins, including $500 this year.

Democrat lackey judge keeps on trucking

Finally, unless appealed, Texas will count hundreds if not thousands of votes that should be thrown out after Bexar County judge Orlando Garcia ruled, in a year-old case that verifying mail-in ballots by signature is unconstitutional.

The suit resurrected to get rid of one of the only mechanisms against cheating the mail-in ballot system is, like other suits and rulings, a ploy to remove any semblance of election integrity and destabilize the electoral system that is deeply distrusted thanks to these efforts.

Garcia is racking up an impressive record of anti-integrity rulings ahead of the 2020 election. A few weeks back he ordered the state of Texas to register voters based on an online driver’s license application.

The online voter registration ruling was anticipated as Garcia issued a similar ruling based on a nearly identical fact pattern in 2016. That ruling was eventually overturned.

This is just another example of Democrats using an activist judge to upended long-standing practices ahead of the election, introducing chaos that Russians couldn’t hope to rival.

There is no indication a change in registration is needed or mandated under the Motor Voter Act. Still, Democrats seeking to make Texas the next California, are pushing for automatic registration that has to lead to tens of thousands of non-citizens being inaccurately added to the voter rolls.

There are many reasons to oppose such a move.

Texas is seeing unprecedented numbers of voters registered, and allowing online voter registration would likely weaken an already compromised voter roll.
