Caught on Tape: Rampant Vote Fraud By Government Officials On House Floor
May 9th, 2012
As voter registration and identity fraud becomes a hot button issue across State legislatures you’d think that at least one group of voters – our elected officials – would understand the importance of laws and procedures designed to maintain the integrity of our legislative process.
According to the rules of the Texas State House of Representatives, for example:
Any member found guilty by the House of knowingly voting for another member on the voting machine shall be subject to discipline deemed appropriate by the house.
Given how clearly this rule is defined, and the fact that it’s common sense for each House member to be allowed only a single vote as is generally the case in all democratic voting proceedings, you’ll be astonished to see legislators not only voting for laws on their colleague’s voting machines when they’re not present, but actually racing to beat each other to the punch.
Eye Witness Account: I certainly noticed that there appeared to be far more votes on the tip board than there were people in the room.
