“State pursues voter fraud charges against Woodlands residents who registered to motel”

Texas Watchdog: “The case of eight Woodlands residents who sought to use a residency loophole in the state’s election law to gain representation in a utility district election in 2010 will go before a grand jury on Thursday in Montgomery County as the state pursues criminal voter fraud charges…Because they didn’t live in the 2,400-acre district, they checked into a Residence Inn that was within its boundaries, claiming residency there. Three of their confederates placed their names on the ballot, and, thanks to the “new” residents, they ousted three incumbents who had fostered the district, which has the power to tax and issue debt….The AG’s office has pursued criminal voter fraud charges over the past several years as part of Attorney General Greg Abbott’s crusade against the practice. Texas Watchdog has documented mail-in ballot fraud – a practice widespread in poorer, South Texas communities. Lawmakers have refused to address that issue, focusing instead on voter ID for in-person balloting.”
