A shocking election fraud scheme is currently under investigation by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s office. Project Veritas recorded the illegal activity involving voter bribery by a female “ballot-chaser” using a hidden camera. The suspect confessed to influencing thousands of voters to vote for her preferred candidates. The ballot chaser convinced the voters to change their ballots, rewarded them with gifts before picking and dropping off the ballots.
At one point, the election fraudster was recorded at an older woman’s home, convincing her to transfer her vote from Republican Sen. John Cornyn to Democrat Senate candidate M.J. Hegar. In return, the suspect rewarded the senior citizen with a shawl.
“What’s shown in the video is shocking and should alarm all Texans who care about election integrity,” Mr Paxton said in a statement. “We are aggressively investigating the serious allegations and potential crimes that Project Veritas’s documentary audio and video recordings shed light on today.”
The ballot chaser claimed to deliver at least 7,000 ballots to the polls within San Antonio. Project Veritas said it paid her $500 to track her activities. The suspect was working for a congressional republican candidate Mauro Garza alongside another organizer identified as Tom. She convinced voters to elect Garza and vote democrat for the remaining posts.
“So Tom and I sat down, and I said, look, the only thing you can do is register every mother—r in that area, everybody in that district, and then I’ve got to flip all these Dems, but I’ve got to flip them only for him, only for him,” the ballot chaser said.
Mr Garza allocated $2,500 to reward voters with various presents like shawls, rosaries, and diabetic socks, according to the woman. The suspect added that she held barbecues and beer parties to register voters and escorted them to voting booths to help them fill their ballots.
“This is what’s what you call flipping people,” the fraudster spilled.
The woman disclosed that she also had a “five girls” team and was training two more.
Mr Garza denied working with the ballot chaser, calling her a “former election volunteer.”
“I do not endorse or support any wrongdoing or voter fraud,” Mr Garza’s statement read. “If any member of my campaign team, paid or volunteer, engages in or gives the perception of any negligent behavior or threatens the integrity of voter registration or engages in voter fraud, they will be immediately fired and turned over to the County elections office and law enforcement.”
Both Texas and federal laws criminalize voter coercion and improper voter assistance. Only family members can harvest and drop off ballots. AG Paxton assured Texans that his office was doing everything possible to ensure “secure and fair” elections throughout Texas.
Project Veritas President James O’Keefe said several incidents involving a handful of individuals manipulated thousands of voters.
“If we don’t stop this abhorrent illegal activity, buying elections here in Texas may become the new normal, and voters’ rights may become a relic of the past,” O’Keefe concluded.
Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is pushing universal background checks in our state, and if left unchecked, it will not be long until we see bills like this getting traction in Austin. Texas is embarrassingly ranked 29th for gun rights, and with the help of the political elites in Austin, we will surely rank among New York, California, and Illinois if left to their own devices. Please join our fight today, and help us restore Texas' place as the standard for the U.S.
