On Sunday, the Texas Supreme Court ruled against a GOP challenge to invalidate over 126k drive-thru ballots cast in Harris County (Houston, TX). The issue is simple. Harris County Clerk Chris Hollins (Democrat) initiated without precedence drive-thru voting due to Covid-19 safety concerns. During early voting, 10 drive-thru voting locations were opened by Hollins, and as of this past Friday, when early voting ended, over 126k ballots had been cast at these drive-thru sites. This is approximately 10% of early votes cast in Harris County.
The Republican party challenged this manner of voting. The plaintiff’s lawyer stated that the issue was not to invalidate the votes but to cast them correctly at in-person polling locations. A similar complaint was also filed at the federal level. Judge Andrew Hanen, a George W. Bush appointee, will hear the case today, just one day before the November 3rd election.
According to The Washington Post, “this suit has nothing to do with voter fraud. Rather, it’s the latest in a consistent and cynical line of suits . . . that appear motivated by partisan gain.” But is it really? What the mainstream media have refused to report is the actual, proven voter fraud that has occurred in many Texas counties. Project Veritas released several videos showing ballot harvesters being paid to approach elderly voters and convince them to change their vote for Senate candidate M.J. Hagar and Presidential candidate Joe Biden.
But, wait, there’s more. Many poll watchers have expressed concern over voter fraud in Houston, TX. Listen to Andrew Burks, a former Houston City Councilman, share his concerns. In another video, Burks explains how he personally was given information proving deceased people’s names being used to vote.
Journalist Patrick Howley has also been exposing blatant voter fraud in Harris County. For many weeks, Howley reported a massive voter fraud ring in Houston, which alleges precinct workers were using stacks of phony driver’s licenses and matching them up with people doing drive-thru voting. A retired captain with the Houston police department witnessed the drive-thru voting fraud and reported it to Harris County authorities. Besides, Dallas Jones, a Biden campaign operative, has been accused of mail-in voter fraud.
To say there is no credible case or accusation of voter fraud is false. It’s just not widely reported as Houston, and Harris County as a whole is traditionally a Democrat stronghold. Rampant voter fraud in Houston may not be enough to swing a presidential election or turn an entire state “blue,” but it can and oftentimes does affect down-ticket races. And if these allegations are proven true, many drive-thru votes are fraudulent. The best way to ensure a fair election at this point would be for voters to be safe but vote in person on election day.
