Texas Watchdog is all over the story, and it’s a big one.
Voter registration group Houston Votes has inundated the county voter registrar’s office with faulty registrations, including multiple applications for the same voters and for noncitizens, registrar Leo Vasquez said. He likens it to ACORN.
Two Texas activist groups, Houston Votes and Texans Together Education Fund, were accused Tuesday of an organized voter fraud campaign by Harris County Voter Registrar Leo Vasquez, who likened the groups to the now-discredited ACORN.
Read the rest – this is very much in ACORN’s wheelhouse, as it is in the Democrat left’s wheelhouse generally. And Houston being Texas’ largest city, this is a very big deal to the entire state.
And when I mention the Democrats, I’m not just blowing smoke.
While Lewis maintains his group is nonpartisan, its board is decidedly liberal-leaning, according to research by blogHouston, which noted earlier this month that the Texans Together board included a Bill Clinton appointee, Democratic consultants and an aide to former Gov. Ann Richards.
Yeah. They’re non-partisan like all the other “non-partisan” groups that, on the one hand attack the Republicans, and on the other hand, attack Republicans. When they’re not overloading the system with fake voter registrations.
You know who all this was intended to help, don’t ya –
It’s in his city, and just when he’s running for Gov. Coincidence, I’m sure.
BlogHouston has more on this story, including a note about the obvious silence of the state’s largest outlet solely focused on political reporting.
More: Let’s pick up a shovel and turn a few rocks over. Texans overwhelmingly want voter photo ID for our elections, as do Americans generally. But the Democrats have repeatedly crashed the legislature in order to stop any kind of voter photo ID bill from becoming law. In the 2009 session, they even filibustered the bill until the session ended. It had passed the state Senate, but the filibuster killed the House version, so it died. Lots of other worthwhile legislation died in that filibuster, too.
Now, who led that filibuster? Why, none other than state Rep. Jim Dunnam. Heard of him? He’s the fellow who does not deign to live in the district that sends him to the state House.
Guess who Dunnam is in cahoots with. Why, he’s pals and lawsuit allies with Steve Mostyn, the mold and hurricane lawyer from Houston who is bankrolling the crazy attacks on Republicans all over Texas.
There’s more to this story, and why the Democrats have fought so hard to kill voter ID in Texas. It looks to me like they were setting up to use voter fraud in Houston to steal November for Bill White – who just happens to have reportedly taken massive political donations from Mr. Mostyn.
UPDATE from Saddleburr
An early morning fire in Harris County seems to have destroyed a large portion of the counties Voting Machines and other equipment.
Houston Fire Department spokesman Patrick Trahan said arson investigators have not yet determined the cause of the blaze.
I hate to use the old cliche’, but I question the timing.
