Election fraud in Texas

Not that you would have heard much about it unless you read PJMedia and a few other outlets that take investigative journalist James O’Keefe for more than the “provocateur” the NYTimes calls him.

Provocateur means troublemaker. Trouble for the Democrat party.

“The media in Texas have done their dead-level best to ignore both of Project Veritas’ videos as long as they possibly could. When the media here do cover them, they have tended to downplay the videos’ potential significance. The [supposedly non-partisan] Texas Tribune even interviewed a Democrat election lawyer — but not a Republican one — to defend Battleground Texas’ actions seen in the Veritas video. The prevailing media opinion seems to be that, because leftwing outfits have often criticized Project Veritas, every story that it unearths is worthless or worse.”

Well, most of the reporters and editors in those outfits are leftists themselves, educated in leftist journalism mills elsewhere, who only came to Texas for a job. Their interest in the state is minimal. And, instead of competing with each other, most of the time they echo each other.

Instapundit calls them and most of their colleagues elsewhere “Democratic operatives with bylines.”

  1. Don’t we have someone in the AG’s office that has the balls to hale them “nice girls” (from the ZZ Top tune, La Grange) before a magistrate?

  2. Not yet, apparently. Makes you wonder if they’re worried the Dems might be driven thereby to ferreting out some of their own fraud.
    The Texas Secretary of State, which handles elections, has the authority to investigate Battleground Texas, which would save Abbott from any conflict of interest.

  3. Mark Twain comes to my mind immediately. But then, nothing is new under the sun, is it?
