Suspicious Fire, Massive Voter Registration Fraud Plague County with ACORN-tied State Representative

posted at 1:20 pm on August 31, 2010 by

An article posted at the site Texas GOP Vote highlights the close connection between Representative Kristin Thibuat and ACORN:

“The Republican Party of Texas today unveiled a new website, The site documents Democrat state Rep. Kristi Thibaut’s sordid past and her involvement with the notorious leftwing organization ACORN. Thibaut is the incumbent in House District 133.”

House District 133 encompasses Harris County, Texas the site of massive ACORN-like voter registration fraud and where a mysterious fire destroyed most of the voting machines in the county last week.

“Another blow has been dealt to voters in Harris County, Texas just days after the Harris County Voter Registrar Leo Vasquez released a 72 page PowerPoint on voting irregularities from a local group similar to the infamous ACORN.

‘The integrity of the voting rolls in Harris County, Texas, appears to be under an organized and systematic attack by the group operating under the name Houston Votes,” Vasquez said at a 2 p.m. press conference at his office, where he also released copies of applications in some of the most egregious cases.’

[Friday], voters are waking up with the news that the Harris County Election Technology Center was the site of a massive three-alarm fire early this morning.”

As the site points out, Thibaut, actively worked for ACORN for a number of years, and was even a paid lobbyist for the group. Screen shot below. Click to enlarge.

By the way, yes, there was money flowing back and forth between Thibaut and ACORN.

A meeting was held yesterday in Harris County regarding purchasing new voting machines or other options regarding the upcoming elections.

Considering the current political climate and the impending sense of doom that most Democrats are experiencing, a situation is emerging it Harris County Texas and it reeks of corruption. Will voters have a chance to have their voices heard or are political players stacking the deck?

Thanks again Anita for this. I saw this last week and had a feeling things were not up to snuff. My thinking is-if Houston can not get enough new voting machines by Nov. 2, early mail in ballots will have to be sent out. Now, we know that the mail in ballots are ripe for fraud! It is bad enough to have all the illegals voting on machines, but mail in makes this easier. Also, Houston is a sanctuary city that white(running d for gov.) was mayor of. I fear we will see more of this going on in other cities before the election.

Al Sharpton has threatened a ‘sucker punch’ in November. One can only conclude it means something about the urban voter turnout and vote counts.

If only we had a Voting Section at the Department of Justice that was actually interested in investigating such things…..

Is Sheila Jackson-Lee involved with Houston Votes? It would be great if she managed to disqualify herself from future consideration as a member of Congress.

Ironic that the destroyed voting machines are only a few years old, having been purchased due to the post-2000 election federal law that banned punch card ballots.

Please, allow me to make a small correction.

If only we had a Voting Section at the Department of Justice Just Us that was actually interested in investigating such things…..

Weird how I haven’t heard this on the news but every 5 minutes I hear that someone set a bulldozer on fire in some town in Tennessee.

Make ya wonder – if not for the internet would we have any idea what was happening in this country?

Thanks as always Anita, I am bookmarking your site.

With Anita on the case I feel much better that something closer to the truth will come out eventually.

If I had a job I would donate to her tireless efforts. As it is, I can merely give her a plug.

You go, girl! She is a fine American.

No story here, simply one of many “acts of sabotage ” that will unfold and force Obama to declare a ” state of emergency ” and postpone the mid term elections for ” voter safety “

Some here were blaming Republicans for this fire. Why would they? They aren’t being threatened into extinction.

The King Street Patriots of Tomball had uncovered the Harris County voter fraud and the next day, the warehouse with all the machines, burned to the ground. Houston will now have to use up to a million paper ballots in order to make up for the lost machines. Now, some blogger has hinted that it was those darn tea partiers who probably started the fire.
