Getting Ugly Out in Houston’s Harris County

I suppose it wasn’t unexpected, on the same day that allegations of voter irregularities came out in Harris County, All the voting machines got destroyed in a fire.

And on the second Day of early Voting the there are acusations and lawsuits being thrown around with threats and confrontations involving poll watchers.

In one instance, three poll watchers were yelled at by a Democrat Harris County Commissioner El Franco Lee who said,”Why are you here? We have never had poll watchers here. Ya’ll need to get on out of here.”

Lee then demanded that the polling place judge give him information about the three poll watchers and the presiding judge complied–giving him their private information. The three poll watchers now fear for their safety and wonder what will be done with their personal information which included their phone numbers and home addresses.

Greg of Rhymes with Right ( A Harris County Precinct Chair) issues a stern warning.

I’m putting El Franco Lee and Harris County Democrats on notice right now — any harassment or violence against any of these poll watchers (or any others) will clearly be the responsibility of local Democrats who are making false charges of voter intimidation against them and gathering dossiers on poll watcher who are engaged in LEGAL activity under state law. You will be held accountable for the results of your actions by the people of Harris County.
