Biden’s Texas political director was just accused of ballot harvesting in Harris County.

This comes right on the heels of the exposure of Ilhan Omar’s ballot harvesting ring.

How many more Democrats are in on it?

The Democrats’ struggle to make mail-in ballots the only way to vote has been an uphill battle, and for good reason.

Now, it appears that fight may be unwinnable.

This past Monday, the Texas Supreme Court filed a lawsuit against presidential nominee Joe Biden’s political director.

The lawsuit accused Dallas Jones and several prominent Democrat officeholders of ballot fraud in Harris County, Texas’s second most populous county, right behind Houston.

The lawsuit was filed by a conservative activist, a man named Dr. Steven Hotze, along with several others.

The two investigators involved in this case are former Houston police captain Mark A. Aguirre and former FBI investigator Charles F. Marler.

Both of them have filed sworn affidavits attesting to video and material evidence of the ballot harvesting scheme.

These affidavits were filed in conjunction with Dr. Hotze’s lawsuit.

In light of this, several Republican officeholders filed to contest Gov. Greg Abbott’s extension of early voting in the state.

Several news sites in Texas have released stories covering the depth to which the fraud goes.

Allegations to the ballot harvesting first appeared in National File, but the Texas Tribune and Holly Hansen at The Texan have more details.

Below is a quote from Hansen’s coverage of the story:

“According to the testimony, ballot harvesters collect absentee ballots from ‘the elderly in nursing homes, from the homeless, and from unsuspecting residences’ mailboxes.’ They then complete the ballots and forge the signature of the voter.

Witnesses also told the investigator that two employees in the Harris County Clerk’s office are facilitating the operation and working to mix the forged ballots in with legally submitted ballots.

The affidavit also alleges that previous county Clerk Diane Trautman, who abruptly resigned in May, was aware of the illegal activities and investigation and told Ellis she was concerned about being arrested for election fraud.”

This news comes hot on the heels of the exposure of two other major ballot harvesting rings, one in Minnesota headed by people who work for Ilhan Omar and another located in Gregg County, in northeast Texas.

Bryan Preston of PJMedia offered specific details on that case:

“In that case, four Democrats face over 100 felony charges of election fraud connected to the 2018 Democratic primary in the county. The accused in that case include Gregg County Precinct 4 Commissioner Shannon Brown and three others, all Democrats. Brown faces 23 felony charges according to the Longview News-Journal. His alleged co-conspirators are Charles Burns, facing eight felonies, DeWayne Ward, facing six felonies, and Marlena Jackson, facing 97 felonies. Brown and the other three were arrested in the case last week.”

The reality of ballot harvesting and fraud rings has become so undeniable that many Democrats have started calling for the end of mail-in ballots.

While they attempted to push this system as a solution to voting during COVID-19, the reality is that it will not come to pass.

These three cases are just the tip of the iceberg.

As the election draws closer, voters can only hope their votes will make a difference.
