Paid Dem Voter Fraud Ring Uncovered In Texas Looks like Bladen, NC

A voter fraud ring centering on absentee ballots uncovered in Texas looks a lot like what went on in Bladen County, North Carolina in 2016 and a current absentee ballot push statewide in 2018.

According to Hot Air, an absentee ballot fraud ring favoring Democrat candidates was uncovered in Texas last and four women have been indicted by a grand jury.  Hot Air reports that the women were “intercepting ballots, primarily intended for elderly voters, and filling them out themselves before trying to trick the intended voters into signing them. And it’s not just a few ballots either.”

The Hot Air report cites CBS News in Dallas, emphasis added:

The voter fraud charges involve mail-in ballots sent in ahead of the 2016 primary election in Texas. Paxton’s office said the case targeted elderly voters on the north side of Fort Worth…

A grand jury indicted Leticia Sanchez, Leticia Sanchez Tepichin, Maria Solis and Laura Parra on Wednesday.

Paxton’s office said the women harvested votes, by filling out applications for mail-in ballots, with forged signatures. Then they would either “assist” the voter with filling out the ballot, or fill it out themselves, and use deception to get the voter to sign the envelope the ballot would be sent back in.

This scenario looks a lot like claims that came out of Bladen County, North Carolina.


A formal election protest was filed in 2016 over absentee ballots by Bladen County Soil and Water Conservation District Supervisor McCrae Dowless, a Democrat. Dowless grew suspicious after he noticed that the write-in candidate in his race for Soil and Water Conservation received a rather high number of votes.

The filing by Dowless cited a handful of absentee ballot witnesses signing off on large numbers of absentee ballots.

These witnesses had been paid fees by Bladen County Improvement Association PAC for “Get Out The Vote (GOTV) efforts.”

One very active absentee ballot “witness” was named as Deborah Monroe. The protest filing observes that she personally validated at least 67 mail-in absentee ballots and had “Franklin Graham” as a write-in candidate on at least 71 ballots.

The Bladen County Improvement Association PAC’s filed reports with the North Carolina State Board of Elections admit that the PAC had paid Ms. Monroe multiple payments totaling $550 for “GOTV” activities.

Other payments which are disclosed on the Bladen County Improvement Association PAC contribution reports include the following:

  • Mary Johnson, witness for 74 ballots, $450
  • Lola Wooten, witness for 58 ballots, $500
  • Deborah Cogdell, witness for 45 ballots, $300
  • Bridgette Keaton, witness for 16 ballots, $630

The single largest contributor to the Bladen County Improvement Association PAC has been the North Carolina Democratic Party. According to the PAC’s disclosure filing on October 26, 2016, the North Carolina Democratic Party gave the PAC $2,500.

Soros Backed Group Pushes Absentee Ballots in 2018

This website recently reported that a George Soros funded group with a very sketchy history of voter-related mailings is behind absentee ballot applications currently being sent to North Carolina Voters.

According to an article at ABC 11, a Washington D.C. based non-profit called Center for Voter Information is sending North Carolina voters pre-printed absentee ballot applications with paid return postage envelopes.

The group claims to be “non-partisan” but ABC 11 cites Gary Sims, director of the Wake County Board of Elections practically laughing at that claim.

“Non-partisan, I’ve never met so many non-partisan groups out there in my entire life,” said Sims. “But if somebody’s just trying to encourage people to register to vote or engage in the election process, I can never have a fault with anybody doing that.”

The Center for Voter Information (CVI) is a shell website set up by the Voter Participation Center (VPC).

VPC is another shell organization set up by Women’s Voices, Women Vote and their affiliated Women’s Voices Women Vote Action Fund.  Let’s call these two Women’s Voices for the sake of brevity

Both CVI, VPC and Women’s Voices share the same address of 1707 L Street, NW Suite 300 Washington, D.C., 20036.

The “StoryMap” provided in the CVI’s website was created by “Dem Labs LLC.”

The Advocacy Fund, which was renamed to Tides Advocacy and is a 501(c)4.

Tides Advocacy supplies a large chunk of ‘operating funds’ for DemLabs LLC, which not surprising since according to their website, “DemLabs LLC is a project of Tides Advocacy.”

    Golly gee. Right here in America

    Hum… I think we need to be careful here. You have no idea what’s going on with the Republicans and the 501 C-3 is in North Carolina. Absolutely and unequivocally disgraceful. Bad state of affairs either way. I did elder case management for six years part time most of the time and was in and out of different facilities, and during voting opportunities. Never once did I see anyone ever forge a ballot. In fact I know in my case if someone was eligible to vote, and they were mobile, they were taken to a voting location. Terribly sad scenario if this is ongoing. Do you know at least one Republican that was forced to step down from that position for the fraudulent 501(c)(3)’s and dark money coming to light. Either way all of this helps none of us

      The Bladen County case has history and incidents that go back over a decade.
      As to your comment — It was a little non-sequitur.
      A. 501(c)3’s are not allowed to engage in politics other than for educational purposes
      B. What you saw where you were might not be what’s going on elsewhere
      C. Who was this Republican that had to step down from a 501c? What case are you talking about?
