It must really not be a good time to be a Democrat in Texas and in Harris County. I mean, having to break the law to support your candidate of choice kinda sucks, no?
Well, yes, it must. Here are a few incidents.
First, from Dale Gibble comes this YouTube video of a woman ripping down a Greg Abbott sign:
Sorta sucks to be that woman, I’m guessing someone, somewhere can recognize her. In fact, if you know who she is, I’ll give you $50 if you let me know!
Then this comes from Dale Huls of the Clear Lake Tea Party:
There have been some reports of electioneering at early voting locations in Harris County. One such complaint was at the IBEW Hall in Pasadena, TX.When early voting started last week, the Harris County Republican Party (HCRP) began getting complaints regarding Democrat campaign signs in the early voting area. The HCRP legal team got with the county attorney ( a Dem) and got the signs removed from view of the voters. However, these signs were then later moved to the front of the building. Again, the HCRP legal team discussed this violation with the election clerks and the signs were removed from the front of the building. At this time, the HCRP asked the Constable’s Office to send a deputy to make sure that no signs were visible in violation of Texas election code. A deputy was sent and reported that no signs were visible at the front of the building or in the voting location. However, it was reported that some signs were being kept in private union offices and if a person entered the wrong door there was a possibility they could see them. It has been determined by the HCRP legal team that there is nothing they can do about having signs in private offices that may inadvertently be seen by people entering the wrong way.So with this being the case, Phil Sandlin’s Office has been responsive to complaints and has done everything asked of it according to the HCRP legal team. Ed Hubbard has asked me to let people know that if they suspect or witness a campaign violation, to please contact the HCRP office and let them take the appropriate actions needed up to and including notifying the local Constables or Sheriff’s Office.
Update: Phil Sandlin will be going to the IBEW Hall today to personally inspect the grounds for any new electioneering violations that may have occurred today.
But wait, there’s more! Morad Fiki, candidate for Texas State Representative, weighs in with this blatant violation of Texas election law on Saturday:
WHOAAAA!! ELECTION CODE VIOLATION!!! I’m at Bayland Community center RIGHT NOW and my opponent, the sitting State Representative is campaigning and having a campaign event inside of the early voting location during early voting?!?! Date is 10-25-14 and the time is 11:01am! I’ve reported this to the election judge and the alternate judge and they don’t know what to do?!? UNBELIEVABLE!!!
And if that wasn’t enough, once he reported it to the Election Judge, he claims that this happened:
Wow! My opponent’s campaign worker/representative Greg Wythe just came by my booth and took a swing at me for reporting an election code violation! 5 witnesses were present. I’m waiting for HPD to arrive to take a police report!!
What can I say? Yes, I’m supporting Democrat Kim Ogg for Harris County District Attorney and a couple of other Democrats for judicial benches but seriously, once you get out of the courts, most Dems are wacky as hell.
I’m voting straight R and crossing over for a few Dems that aren’t nutcases and are opposing R’s that are – like the appointed, interim Harris County DA Devon Anderson, who is wackier than most Dems.
I hope you can figure out who to vote for because this election is WHACKO! Voter fraud everywhere on the D side and nothing being done about it!
