DOJ to Monitor Early Voting in Dallas and Harris County

The idiot in the Tax office in Harris county in charge of assigning election judges is a King Street Patriot and has been appointing their people as GOP Judges. The NAACP and other have complained and the DOJ is going to be monitoring early voting in Dallas and Harris county http://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/2012/October/12-crt-1263.html

Justice Department to Monitor Early Voting in Texas

The Justice Department announced today that it will monitor portions of the early voting period for the Nov. 6, 2012, general election in Dallas and Harris Counties, Texas, to ensure compliance with the Voting Rights Act of 1965. The Voting Rights Act prohibits discrimination in the election process on the basis of race, color or membership in a minority language group. Early voting in Dallas and Harris Counties begins on Monday, October 22.

Justice Department personnel will monitor polling place activities during early voting in these two counties. Civil Rights Division attorneys will coordinate federal activities and maintain contact with local election officials.

Each year, the Justice Department deploys hundreds of federal observers from the Office of Personnel Management, as well as departmental staff, to monitor elections across the country. To file complaints about discriminatory voting practices, including acts of harassment or intimidation, voters may call the Voting Section of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division at 1-800-253-3931.

Visit www.justice.gov/crt/voting/index.php for more information about the Voting Rights Act and other federal voting laws.


This is good news given the number of King Street idiots who may be alternative election judges or clerks for early voting in Harris County.

Early Voting starts Tomorrow in Texas

Please get out and cast your ballot. The VAN keeps track of early voters on a daily basis and so voting early means that the the party will not be wasting time contacting you to vote.

I have been busy training poll watchers. Fort Bend County is next to Harris County and we may have some King Street types at our sites. I hope that I have enough poll watchers to cover the early voting locations.

Next weekend is the only weekend of early voting. My county is doing a Souls to the Polls program with a dozen or so African American Churches and I am lining up poll watchers for the early voting locations for this Sunday.

Please get out and vote. Voting early means that you are available for GOTV efforts and that the party will not be wasting any time trying to contact you to vote on election day

Texas GOP Candidate caught voting in two different states

Juanita Jean has a good story about the GOP candidate for a county commissioner seat in Fort Bend County having voted both in Texas and Pennsylvania in the 2006, 2008 and 2010 general elections http://juanitajean.com/2012/10/10/true-the-vote-can-kiss-my-big-blue-butt/

Bruce Fleming is the Republican nominee for County Commissioner, Precinct 1, in Fort Bend County. He won in a runoff election. Bruce was also named Precinct Chairman of the Year last year by then GOP County Chairman and thug-about-town Rick Miller. Miller then recruited Fleming to run for county commissioner which seemed like a good idea at the time since Fleming is unemployed. Here’s Bruce’s website....

In 2006, 2008, and 2010, Bruce voted in person in Fort Bend County and by mail in Pennsylvania in the same general elections. According to his financial disclosure forms, Bruce Fleming also owns a house in Pennsylvania. (He homesteaded a house in Texas and a house in Pennsylvania, but that illegality is a whole ‘nother story.) Bruce felt that owning houses in both states gave him the right to vote in the same elections in both states. That’s a third degree felony in Texas.....

So here sits True The Vote and the King Street Patriots out chasing imaginary voter fraud when real voter fraud is happening right here in their own front yard.

Ain’t that just the damnest thing you’ve ever seen?

There’s more to this story and all kinds of ugly Republican twists and splatters but I thought you’d want to chew on the glorious irony of Cathy Engelbrecht’s own Republican county commissioner candidate being a felony chronic serial voter frauder.


Richard Morrison is the Democrat who is the current County Commissioner. Richard is a good guy who ran against Tom DeLay in 2004 and showed that DeLay could be beat. Bruce Fleming is evidently unemployed and was handpicked by the former Fort Bend GOP party chair who running for a state house seat against another good Democrat Vy Nguyen.

The head of the True the Vote group lives in this district. I wonder if she is still going to vote for a crook like Fleming. It seems that the only real cases of voter fraud involve republicans
