Texas Vote Fraud Charges, Were They Democrats? AP Won’t Say

-By Warner Todd Huston

Yes, ladies and gentlemen thanks for tuning in to our next episode of “Democrats or Not?” Our favorite game where we read a story highlighting corruption, fraud, and crime by a public official or party member and then we try to guess which Party the perps are from… because the MSM won’t tell us.

Today’s tale come from the Associated Press and concerns charges laid against 4 Duval County, Texas residents who are charged with making up fake mail-in ballots during the 2006 primary. It appears that Lydia Molina, Maria “Kena” Soriano, Elva Lazo, and Maria Trigo are charged with a Class B misdemeanor for possession and handling of ballots assigned to another person.

As the AP tells us the tale:

The defendants are accused of delivering mail-in ballot applications to Duval County residents who were ineligible to vote by mail, according to the news release. Only those who are disabled, 65 or older, or expect to be out of the county during an election are eligible to vote by mail.

The news release says that once the ballots were sent to the residents and completed, the defendants allegedly retrieved them and mailed them to the registrar to be counted without identifying themselves on the carrier envelope.

Well, nasty business that. But, what do we spy is missing from this sordid little tale? Why it’s a party affiliation isn’t it?

We get no party mention in the AP story or the San Antonio Express-News report.

So, how do we find out if these nefarious vote fraud agents are demented Democrats or wascally Republicans?

Well, we have to do just a little digging. Since most Americans are not denizens of Duval County and don’t know that the Republican Party there is nearly nonexistent, nor that this particular county has been enmeshed in vote fraud since the first time Sam Houston ran for office, we have to do a little searching.

In so doing, we can find this story: “High Duval turnout attracts state’s notice”

Here we get another tale of vote fraud in Duval.

Duval County’s remarkable 55 percent voter turnout has caught the attention of the Texas Secretary of State’s office after some residents alleged voter fraud.

And nestled in that story is this line…

All who voted in Duval County are registered Democrats.

And there you have it. It is shocking, I know, but it turns out that all the vote fraud in Duval County, Texas is at the hands of Democrats.

Imagine that.

But, do you see how much effort fit took to find this all out? Do you think the average reader would put in this much effort? I doubt it, myself.

So, what we get is another story of fraud, corruption and crime told where the word Democrat doesn’t appear.

Thanks for playing, and stop by for our next episode of “Democrats or Not?”

One thought on “Texas Vote Fraud Charges, Were They Democrats? AP Won’t Say”

  1. Oh, come on, Warner! You KNOW if Party affiliation is not mentioned that it involves Democrats! the MSM is all to eager to talk about corruption if it involves a Republican – and NEVER fail to mention that…but if a Democrat is involved, they NEVER print/mention the party affiliation….so therule of thumb is this: corruption story without party affiliation mentioned = Democrats!

    SIMPLE! (I used to research, too. Until I realized that EVERY one I had to research involved the Damo Rats!
