The organization responsible for uncovering an alleged voter fraud operation in Tarrant County says an “unnamed” Republican political consultant is involved in the scheme.
Aaron Harris of Direct Action Texas claims the mountain of evidence he uncovered – along with information obtained with the assistance of private investigators – implicates a well-known consultant who’s primarily associated with Republican campaigns.
The partisan association of the alleged perpetrator is intriguing, considering the two campaigns Harris says benefited from mail-in ballot fraud are outspoken Democrats—Fort Worth Mayor Pro Tem, Sal Espino, and State Rep. Ramon Romero Jr. (D–Fort Worth).
Undercover videos released this week by Project Veritas showed several consultants associated with the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign willing to engage in massive voter fraud schemes and other highly unethical behavior. Harris’s claim raises the question as to whether or not some Republican consultants in Texas subscribe to the same win-at-all-costs mentality.
During Harris’ presentation to a Tarrant County 912 group on Monday he said he was unable to publicly release name of the bad-apple consultant, due to an ongoing criminal investigation by the Attorney General’s Office.
Notably, three days before Harris released his specific evidence and allegations to the public, the Fort Worth Star Telegram quoted an anonymous “Republican political consultant” who claimed the voter fraud alleged by Harris simply doesn’t exist. The consultant joined a chorus of local officials who have also been oddly dismissive about the scope and severity of the readily apparent problem.
Such a definitive assertion in the face of damning evidence raises several important questions: Who is the Republican consultant and what does he/she know that everyone else does not? More importantly, where did they get the information to support such a claim? If they know some innocent explanation for the fraud, are they sharing that information with law enforcement?
Aside from Harris’s presentation in Fort Worth on Monday, October 17th, no other details related to evidence of the alleged fraud had been released by either the OAG or Direct Action Texas. At the time the Fort Worth Star Telegram article ran, only Texas Scorecard had written about the OAG investigation and Harris’ statement alleging enormous fraud.
Was the Star Telegram quoting the same unnamed consultant Harris claims is involved in the scandal?
Harris’ shocking presentation this week made one thing abundantly clear – physical evidence of a massive, organized, mail-in ballot fraud operation in Tarrant County exists. Every single criminal perpetrator involved must be caught and prosecuted, and our election laws must be reformed to prevent this corruption from ever happening again. Whomever the political consultant is, they should never again be allowed anywhere near a political campaign.
