Democrats’ Massive Voter Fraud Campaign Comes to Texas

Vote!

It wasn’t too long ago that ACORN, the liberal activist organization, was exposed [1]
for fraudulently registering the entire Dallas Cowboys football team in
Nevada in time for the 2008 election. As Democrats desperately try to
hold onto seats in the House and Senate, and governorships in 37 states,
liberal organizations are stepping up their voter fraud campaign.
Their new target is the fourth largest city in the country, and the
economic heart of the Lone Star State — Houston.

On Tuesday, Harris County Tax Assessor Collector Leo Vasquez, who is
in charge of voting registration in Houston’s encompassing county, accused [2]
Houston Votes and the Texans Together Education Fund of an organized
voter fraud campaign. Houston Votes submitted more than 25,000
applications in recent months wrought with disturbing irregularities,
including addresses that didn’t exist, non-citizens seeking to register,
and cases where up to six applications were submitted for the same
person.

Vasquez said that the integrity of the voter rolls in the Houston
area, “appears to be under an organized and systematic attack,” by
Houston Votes, the voter registration arm of Texans Together, whose
board of directors is stocked full of Democrats.

The board includes [3]
Cris Feldman, one of the lawyers who brought a civil suit against Tom
Delay’s TRMPAC; James Aldrete, a veteran Democrat operative who consulted [4]
for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign; and Andres Pereira, a mass
torts trial attorney in Houston who has given thousands of dollars to
Democrats, and was a 2008 candidate [5] for a judicial position in Houston.

Although Texans Together claims to be non-partisan, their liberal ties run deep, and the organization’s efforts to register more than 600,000 [6]
new voters in the Houston area by November now comes under great
scrutiny, after so many irregularities were found in this recent batch
of applications.

Much of the research that uncovered these gross irregularities in the voter rolls was done by a citizen’s watchdog group called True the Vote [7].
They began their investigation by looking at households where six or
more voters resided. That’s how they stumbled upon what is perhaps the
most troubling discovery — an instance [8] where as many as six people where registered at an address that is nothing more than a vacant lot.

Texans Together, like other liberal voter registration organizations
caught participating in voter fraud, claims that it had no knowledge of
the invalid applications, and the group’s President Fred Lewis was quick
to say efforts to review and clean up these rolls are simply
Republicans trying to suppress voter registration. Lewis also said [2]
he would appeal to Obama’s Justice Department in Washington. “We need
to have the Justice Department come in and see what Mickey Mouse stuff
he and his office are doing to suppress people.”

Fraudulent voters may play a key role in November’s elections.
Besides Democrat congressional seats in Texas, the state is also holding
contests for state-wide offices, and battling for control of a closely
divided State House. Chief among these elections is the battle for
Texas Governor, between Republican Governor Rick Perry and the Democrat
Bill White. White, a former Houston mayor, comes from the very county
where this massive voter fraud is taking place, and could gain the most
from these suspect voters.

As Democrats reach new levels of desperation, efforts to defraud
genuine American citizens of their right to fair and free elections seem
to be in their cross-hairs. Winning elections at all costs requires
that groups like ACORN and Texans Together prey on that shortcomings of
Voter ID laws in hopes of fraudulently swinging elections in their
favor.

In a country where you have to provide a valid ID to drive, fly or
even enjoy a beer, it’s astounding that in most states you are not
required to do the same to vote. Evidence like this shows that this
failure of the system will continue to be exploited in the interests of
those who stand to benefit.
