We’ve been learning all manner of things this year about ways that people have attempted to tamper with the voting process, despite most of the mainstream media’s insistence that actual voter fraud rarely if ever happens. Some people have engaged in what’s known as ballot harvesting. Others have teamed up with unscrupulous postal workers to either throw away or replace absentee ballots. But in the city of Carrollton, Texas, one candidate hoping to become the next mayor decided to cut out the middle man and take a far more direct approach to increase his chances on November 3rd.

A mayoral candidate in Carrollton has been arrested and charged with voter fraud.
Denton County Sheriffs have Zul Mirza Mohamed in custody and have charged him with 109 felonies related to voter fraud.
The investigation began September 23 when Sheriff’s were notified by the Denton County Elections Office of possible fraudulent activity related to absentee ballot applications.
Officials say absentee ballots had been requested to be sent to a PO Box in Lewisville, that was supposed to belong to a nursing home facility.
Determining the party affiliations, or at least leanings in this race isn’t easy as they don’t seem to be publicly listed. You have to do some digging to find that incumbent Mayor Kevin Falconer “traditionally voted with the Republicans.” Mohamed is running to replace him, though with 109 felony counts against him and his new address currently being the city jail, his campaign options may be limited.
