More recently, the Houston Chronicle wrote about Abbott’s controversial activity. (Read the Story Here) Abbott has turned up the heat by sending investigating agents to the homes of elderly citizens to interrogate them in person. There is now evidence that Abbott’s agents have moved beyond aggressive questioning and are employing more intimidating tactics.
Sworn Statement Details AG Agents Spying on Elderly Woman
According to the sworn statement of Ms. Gloria Meeks, a 69 year-old Fort Worth community activist, two of Abbott’s voter fraud agents came on to her property and looked into her bathroom window while she was unclothed and leaving the shower. Incredibly, the agents justified their privacy violation by explaining, that they thought they were peeping in the “kitchen window.” Read Gloria Meeks sworn statement HERE.
Vote Fraud Unit Ineffective and Biased
In Texas, an average of over 5 million votes has been cast in General Elections since 1998. Abbott’s task force has indicted only 13 individuals, involving fewer than 50 ballots, which represents less than one of every 100,000 ballots typically cast in Texas. The indictments do not involve massive, or even organized, voter fraud. 10 of Abbott’s 13 indictments do not even allege that an individual voter was defrauded. In these 10 instances, Abbott prosecuted individuals who appear to have done little more than mistakenly help senior citizens by delivering already completed and sealed ballots to the post office or an elections administration office.

Racially and Politically Biased: Virtually all of those prosecuted are African American or Hispanic senior citizens with Democratic voting history. Most of these cases involve very elderly or disabled voters who depend on trusted friends to help them vote, and without whose assistance, they would have no way to cast a ballot at all.
