Dem Official Charged with Mail Ballot Fraud in Plot To Steal Primary Election

Republican Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced charges on Thursday against four people, including a county commissioner, for allegedly carrying out a mail ballot fraud scheme in the 2018 Democratic primary.

Gregg County Commissioner Shannon Brown and three others “targeted young, able-bodied voters to cast ballots by mail by fraudulently claiming the voters were ‘disabled,’ in most cases without the voters’ knowledge or consent,” as part of a vote harvesting scheme meant to swing the primary to Brown, according to a news release from Paxton’s office.

Brown won his primary by five votes after mail-in ballots erased the 19 percent lead his opponent held after early and Election Day votes were tallied, the Longview News-Journal reported in 2018.

The state filed a total of 123 felony charges in the case, including organized election fraud, illegal voting, fraudulent use of an application for a mail-in ballot and election fraud.

“It is an unfortunate reality that elections can be stolen outright by mail ballot fraud. Election fraud, particularly an organized mail ballot fraud scheme orchestrated by political operatives, is an affront to democracy and results in voter disenfranchisement and corruption at the highest level,” Paxton said in a statement released by his office.

“Mail ballots are vulnerable to diversion, coercion, and influence by organized vote harvesting schemes,” Paxton added.

Brown’s office didn’t immediately return a request for comment.
