District 11 Voting Irregularities: 22% of Early Votes Came in Mail, Highest Ever

Posted on Posted in News

The Dallas County DA and the Texas Attorney General are investigating cases of voter fraud in two Dallas City Council Districts, 2 and 6. Something is definitely rotten with the way mail-in voting ballots were handled, and no one has found “spectre man” Jose Rodriguez. He’s the name who appeared on hundreds of mail-in ballots as a witness:

The Dallas Morning News reported this week that senior citizens in West Dallas, which is in City Council District 6, and Grand Prairie have had an individual come to their homes, falsely represent he is with the county and then procure mail-in ballots that many of them said they never ordered.

But there may be irregularities in District 11, too. In fact, the Dallas Morning News reached out to my opponent, who won our May 6th election with something that has never happened before in this district: 22% of the early votes came from mail-in ballots.

Other districts also had large numbers of mail-in ballots. In the race between Lee Kleinman and Candy Evans, 22 percent of early votes were cast by mail-in ballot, according to the county.

Kleinman said Saturday morning his campaign sent a vote-by-mail piece, targeting registered “older voters who may not be able to vote easily.” He said voting by mail is “just a convenience thing” in his district.

Annette and Steve Perkins, both 70, are among dozens of potential victims of voter fraud this election cycle. Steve holds the ballot he received in the mail at their home on Thursday, April 27, 2017 in Grand Prairie, Texas. They both received Dallas County ballots in the mail that they did not request. Gloria filled it out and left it on her doorstep for the mailman. But she found out later that someone might have fraudulently tampered with it, because the county elections office said someone marked himself or herself as a witness on her ballot as "Jose Rodriguez" but she doesn't know anyone by that name. The same name has been appearing on elderly people's ballots across West Dallas and Grand Prairie this election cycle, prompting concerns of widespread voter fraud.

 He was unaware of the county’s statement when reached Saturday morning.

“I am just happy to see the county is making sure the ballots are valid,” he said. “That’s fine. I will do anything I can do help to them. I am not troubled in my district, but it’s troublesome in District 6 and others with heavy mail-in ballots.”

I have downloaded the early votes, and in one case, 44 votes came from 2500 Keller Springs Road, the Bonaventure, where, coincidentally, my opponent’s parents live.
