Texas may just be next…..
Audits have become one of the biggest topics of this year, as state by state announces inquiries into the results of the 2020 election.
Texas Attorney General, Ken Paxton, has reportedly announced to a crowd at CPAC that Texas is now investigating over 300 cases of additional voter fraud.
Paxton then went on to slam the false Democrat narrative that “there is no evidence of voter fraud”, and it makes me wonder, will Texas be next in line to audit?
We see it happening in Arizona, Georgia, and Pennsylvania looks like it is about to go ahead with its own audit very, very soon.
Paxton’s comments are drawing praise from Conservatives everywhere:
G’morning😊 Texas AG Ken Paxton spoke at CPAC yesterday, he said his office is investigating nearly 400 more alleged cases of voter fraud. The cases that are being investigated are in addition to more than 500 cases that his office has prosecuted. Election Fraud isn’t overblown!

The Epoch Times had more on the story:
“People tell you there is no election fraud. Let me just tell you right now, my office has 511 counts in court because of COVID waiting to be heard. We have another 386 that we’re investigating,” he told the CPAC audience in Texas.
“If you add those together, that’s more election fraud than my office has prosecuted since it started investigating election fraud years and years ago. So do not believe the narrative, because in Texas we are going to fight election fraud.”
In June, Paxton announced that his office is investigating 500 cases that are “waiting to be heard in court.”
Texas’s state Senate approved a sweeping bill a month prior to that announcement that would grant more power to poll watchers by giving them increased access inside polling areas. It would also create new penalties against election officials who restrict poll watchers’ movements and would allow a judge to void the outcome of an election if the number of fraudulent votes could change the result, among other provisions.
Ah, Attorney General Ken Paxton, tireless watchkeeper of Election Integrity. Texans can sleep peacefully tonight knowing Ken is dutifully prosecuting voter-lawbreakers from panhandle to Gulf Coastal Plain. https://t.co/lHhATUC0hW pic.twitter.com/9mz4XXmsd1

Hervis is a felon rightly barred from voting under TX law. This liberal NPR article even says so, but buries it: “Rogers voted before his parole was scheduled to end, he was likely ineligible to cast a ballot on Election Day.”
I prosecute voter fraud everywhere we find it! https://t.co/cXTjGIXfe1

Liberal outlets like NPR chose to frame the story in a different way:
Rogers was arrested on Wednesday in the South Acres neighborhood in Houston, and he voted in Harris County, but the AG’s office is prosecuting the case in Montgomery County. Rogers is charged with two counts of illegal voting. His bail is set at $100,000.
Rogers is represented by the ACLU of Texas and Nicole DeBorde Hochglaube.
“Mr. Rogers is being held in jail on an extremely high bail amount that he cannot afford for what amounts to simply attempting to fulfill his civic duty. This is not justice,” said ACLU of Texas legal director Andre Segura.
Because Rogers voted before his parole was scheduled to end, he was likely ineligible to cast a ballot on Election Day, despite being registered to vote, said a spokesperson with the Harris County Attorney’s Office last year.
