Statement from Fort Bend County Democratic Chairman Steve Brown on Fort Bend Voter Fraud

MISSOURI CITY, TX. This morning, the Fort Bend Southwest Star reported that Republican candidate, Bruce Fleming, voted in the 2006, 2008 & 2010 general elections in both Texas and Pennsylvania. It’s illegal to vote in multiple states in the same election. Fleming, named the Champion Precinct Chair in 2010 by then-Republican Party Chair Rick Miller, was recruited by Miller to run for County Commissioners Court Precinct 1. Right-wing organizations, like True the Vote, have vowed to root out voter fraud nationally. Fleming is running in the district where True the Vote founder Cathy Engelbrecht resides.

“While local and national Republican leaders were tilting at the windmills of imaginary voter fraud, real voter fraud was taking place under their noses,” stated Fort Bend County Democratic Chairman Steve Brown. “It demonstrates that the Republican's crusade against voter fraud is either disingenuous or ill conceived – maybe both – to be totally unaware of a serial fraudulent voter like Fleming while aggressively harassing little old ladies attempting to vote in Briargate.”

“I call on Fleming to immediately withdraw from this race, and allow for a thorough investigation to take place. I also ask that Miller and Engelbrecht publicly denounce their support for Fleming and acknowledge that their judgment and focus was wrong and misplaced.”

“The local Republican Party has been overtaken by Don Quixote’s, and has lost its focus on the issues that matter to everyday Texans like properly funding public education, improving access to quality care and growing small businesses,” he concluded.
