RIGGED? Texas Democrats Warn of Iowa-Style Mishaps to Come in Their State’s Upcoming Primary

Changes have been made in Texas that are expected to cause problems.

The unprecedented disaster that is still ongoing in Iowa after their caucus ended in disarray on Monday may not be an isolated incident for the Democrats.

Texas Democrats are warning that their state’s upcoming primary on Mar. 3 could undergo similar problems because of how they changed the manner in which they report their results from the last time around.

The Texas Democratic Party was recently informed by the Texas Secretary of State’s office that they will be unable to provide the numbers to allocate a majority of the state’s 228 delegates on the night of the primary. With a close race expected and Texas being such a delegate-rich state, this impending fiasco could blow Iowa’s out of the water.

State election officials have told Texas Democrat officials that their new reporting system has serious limitations, and it may take days to determine who is the actual winner of the primary. Nobody knows for sure what will be done to the votes during the lengthy deliberative process, and how it will effect the integrity of the primary vote.

Texas’ presidential primary is scheduled to take place on Super Tuesday. They will hold their primary simultaneously with the states of Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Democrats Abroad, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, and Virginia. It is the day that ultimately could decide the Democratic nominee and may ultimately be besieged with reporting concerns.

Because of the complex new reporting systems, the state will only be able to collect data at the county level on the first night. They will need additional data from the senatorial district and precinct levels in order to tally who gets 149 of the state’s available delegates. This could take days to accomplish, the state has reportedly told Democrat Party officials.

Democrat officials are already blaming the Republican-led state government for the problems that will likely arise from this complicated new system.

“Texas is more important to presidential campaigns than ever before and could make or break campaigns. With one of the largest delegations, in one of the most diverse states in the country, Texas is the pathway to winning the Democratic nomination,” said Manny Garcia, who works as executive director of the Texas Democratic Party.

“The public deserves to see the vote and the delegate results on election night, and we urge the Texas Secretary of State’s office not to leave Texas voters and our nation in the dark,” he added.

The Texas process works by distributing 149 district-delegates proportionally among candidates who receive 15 percent or more of the vote among various Senate districts. The number of delegates up for grabs per Senate district depends uon how many people voted for the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee and the 2018 Democratic nominee for governor. Each district is appointed between 2 and 10 delegates during the election cycle.

The chaos and confusion may result in the Democrat Party becoming more hands-on in the process, which will likely anger anti-establishment Bernie Sanders’ supporters who do not trust the party brass. Democrats are considering posting district-delegate distribution totals from outside of the Secretary of State’s web portal. This is highly unusual, and it is unclear what the state’s oversight role would be in the Democrats’ delegate counting.

“If we can confidently acquire and report in a timely manner election results by every category necessary to award delegate counts then we will do so,” Garcia said. “Transparency is our top priority. We will make further comments on our plans in the near future.”

The Democrat primary season has gotten off to a wild start, and it could become far more frenetic in the weeks to come.

DECISIVE VICTORY: Arizona Judge Rules State Senate Can Review 2.1 Million Ballots & Voting Software in Maricopa County

Published

on

Friday morning, a Maricopa County Superior Court Judge gave the Trump Campaign and overall MAGA movement another small yet decisive victory in their ongoing legal battle in the 2020 Presidential Election. According to an article by the Associated Press, Judge Timothy Thomason ruled that the Arizona Senate can get access to 2.1 million voter ballots and voting machines from Maricopa County, Arizona’s most popular county which flipped Arizona from Trump to Biden. Big League Politics has previously reported on Maricopa County’s Board of Supervisors and their state of perpetual non-compliance with legally issued subpoenas by the Arizona Senate. It appears that today, Judge Thomason has officially ordered that non-compliance to end, and Maricopa County must allow the Senate to proceed with their investigation.

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has previously argued that ballots should remain secret and not open to investigation. They see the subpoenas issued by the Senate as illegitimate and that they have no right to access the county’s voting hardware. In turn, the Senate and their legal team have argued that the constitution clearly gives the Legislature the responsibility to enforce the law and to maintain election integrity. It is the Senate’s role to ensure that Arizona elections are free, fair, and pure.

Judge Thomason seemingly agrees with the Senate on all fronts and has called the subpoenas “legal and enforceable”. In his ruling, the Judge also stated:

“There is no question that the Senators have the power to issue legislative subpoenas. The Subpoenas comply with the statutory requirements for legislative subpoenas. The Senate also has broad constitutional power to oversee elections. The Arizona legislature clearly has the power to investigate and examine election reform matters. Accordingly, the Senators have the power to subpoena material as part of an inquiry into election reform measures. As such, the Subpoenas have a proper legislative purpose. The Subpoenas also do not violate separation of powers principles. Production of the subpoenaed materials would not violate confidentiality laws.”

“We are thrilled and grateful that the judge was able to see the big picture in this whole issue,” said Arizona State Senate President Karen Fann. “That this has never been about overturning an election. This has always been 100% about voter integrity and finding the answers to all of our voters’ questions about the safety and security and validity of the Arizona electoral system.”

Maricopa County has been accused of committing mass voter fraud, discriminating against Trump voters and using hardware to manipulate votes for Joe Biden. Big League Politics has previously reported that former Maricopa County Treasurer Royce Flora had resigned from his office in disgust with the complacency Maricopa County played in the election fraud. Flora said that he plans to continue to push recall efforts against the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors for what he sees as crimes against the people of Maricopa County.
