Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has announced 134 felony charges against four people arrested for running a Vote By Mail fraud scheme during the 2018 Democratic primary elections. The defendants stand accused of pretending people were handicapped in order to give them mail-in ballots — which is especially interesting considering that Democrats in Texas are now claiming fear of Coronavirus constitutes a disability that qualifies for a mail-in ballot.
The Texas Attorney General’s office states: “Attorney General Ken Paxton today announced that authorities arrested Gregg County Commissioner Shannon Brown, Marlena Jackson, Charlie Burns, and DeWayne Ward on charges in connection with an organized vote harvesting scheme during the 2018 Democratic primary election. To increase the pool of ballots needed to swing the race in Brown’s favor, the group targeted young, able-bodied voters to cast ballots by mail by fraudulently claiming the voters were “disabled,” in most cases without the voters’ knowledge or consent. Under Texas election law, mail ballots based on disability are specifically reserved for those who are physically ill and cannot vote in-person as a result. In total, the state filed 134 felony charges against the four defendants, including engaging in organized election fraud, illegal voting, fraudulent use of an application for a mail-in ballot, unlawful possession of a mail-in ballot, tampering with a governmental record, and election fraud. Penalties for these offenses range from six months in state jail to 99 years in prison.”
Attorney General Paxton states, “It is an unfortunate reality that elections can be stolen outright by mail ballot fraud. Election fraud, particularly an organized mail ballot fraud scheme orchestrated by political operatives, is an affront to democracy and results in voter disenfranchisement and corruption at the highest level. Mail ballots are vulnerable to diversion, coercion, and influence by organized vote harvesting schemes. This case demonstrates my commitment to ensuring Texas has the most secure elections in the country, and I thank the Gregg County Sheriff and District Attorney for their continued partnership. Those who try to manipulate the outcome of elections in Texas must be held accountable.”
NATIONAL FILE spotlighted a case of alleged Democrat voter fraud in Harris County, Texas. The Lone Star State’s Republican attorney general Paxton is hot on the trail of Vote By Mail shenanigans. Paxton successfully sued to stop Harris County (which houses Houston) from sending mail-in ballot applications to every registered voter based on their supposed “fear of Coronavirus” disabilities, but the county is still sending them to people aged 65 and over, so the nursing homes are still a ripe epicenter for potential Democrat voter fraud. From now until November 3, one thing is clear: Vote By Mail is THE issue in this election.
