Candidate voted twice in same elections, records show [Houston]

Source: Houston Chronicle

A Republican precinct chairman running for a seat on the Fort Bend County Commissioner's Court has cast ballots in both Texas and Pennsylvania in the last three federal elections, official records in both states show.

Bruce J. Fleming, a Sugar Land resident running for Precinct 1 commissioner, voted in person in Sugar Land in 2006, 2008 and 2010 and by mail in each of those years in Yardley, Pa., according to election records in both states.

Fleming, who owns a home in Yardley, voted for Hillary Rodham Clinton in the 2008 presidential primary in Texas. His wife, Nancy Fleming, who is listed as a resident of Yardley, voted by mail in both places in the 2010 general election, records show.

"The less said is better," Bruce Fleming said when contacted by phone late Tuesday afternoon. "Until we can determine the situation, I can't really comment."

1. I bet Rush and Sean won't be talking about this tomorrow.

I'd bet $10,000 on it.

2. Here's the original blog report that broke the story

http://juanitajean.com/2012/10/10/true-the-vote-can-kiss-my-big-blue-butt/

... So here sits True The Vote and the King Street Patriots out chasing imaginary voter fraud when real voter fraud is happening right here in their own front yard.

Ainít that just the damnest thing youíve ever seen?

Thereís more to this story and all kinds of ugly Republican twists and splatters but I thought youíd want to chew on the glorious irony of Cathy Engelbrechtís own Republican county commissioner candidate being a felony chronic serial voter frauder.

If they're cheating on their homestead, they'll cheat in other ways as well.

9. My hubby has said this about the snowbirds for quite sometime. We have a lot

of farmers who rent their fields out. They are around here during the summer, come Oct.,Nov. they all flee for Florida. We are also a very auto manufacturing related area, but inevitably we always go red. His theory was the snowbirds.

10. No national coverage yet on this story.

Picked up by several Houston blogs and one Fla. blog. Thought that by now there would be some coverage in Pa.

No wonder Repugs have been winning, They get to vote twice, And they want to suppress our vote.

12. [Followup] Excuse Me While I Rub This In : Juanita Jean

Yesterday morning, local Republicans smirked that nothing would come of the serial Republican voter fraud in True the Voteís front yard. GOP county commissioner candidate Bruce Fleming has purposefully double voted at least three times.

Do not mess with me. Seriously. And do not mess with Bev Carter. Even Iím afraid of Bev Carter. Honey, she will shoot you, stuff you, hang you over her fireplace and then open her house for the home tour.

13. Finally something from Pa.

Dems allege man voted in Bucks and Texas

After months of heated debate on the need to identify voters with a photo, Bucks County is investigating claims of election fraud by a man who allegedly mailed-in ballots from a house 1,600 miles away.

The Texas State Democratic Executive Committee alleges Bruce J. Fleming, a Republican candidate for county commissioner in the Lone Star state, also participated in Bucks local elections, voting via absentee ballot from a second home in Lower Makefield.

16. Update: local Republican boys threw their friend under the bus.

http://juanitajean.com/2012/10/17/local-update/

Okay, so the local Republican boys threw their friend under the bus. Hereís the statement that came out of the private, super secret meeting the Republicans had:

PRESS RELEASE for immediate dissemination

At an executive committee meeting on October 15, 2012, the Republican Party of Fort Bend County withdrew its support for the candidacy of Bruce Fleming for Commissioner, Precinct One. This action was the result of a loss of trust in the candidate. It is the Partyís firm belief that its candidates should hold and exhibit certain ethical standards. One of those is the sanctity of the vote. The Republican Party of Fort Bend County considers this to be of the utmost importance and believes that if it cannot be sure that a candidate agrees with and follows those standards, then the Party will not support the candidate.

17. Don't people like this ever get fined and go to jail?

 

Or is it IOKIYAAR?

It's OK if you are a Republican?

18. Not so far.

The story seems to have died. Notice I tried to keep it alive for a while. I might drop a line to JaunitaJean. But can't expect much against a Rep. in Texas.
