It’s a turbulent time, and as America sits on the edge of its seat, accusations of misconduct abound.
Amid the turmoil, an incredible act of alleged election impropriety occurred in Texas.
On Friday, state officials announced they’ve charged a social worker with 134 felony counts of election fraud and acting as an agent.
Per a statement at TexasAttorneyGeneral.gov, the matter regarded, it seems, the nursing home where she worked:
Attorney General Ken Paxton today announced that his Election Fraud Unit assisted the Limestone County Sheriff and District Attorney in charging Kelly Reagan Brunner, a social worker in the Mexia State Supported Living Center (SSLC), with 134 felony counts of purportedly acting as an agent and of election fraud. State Supported Living Centers serve people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Brunner submitted voter registration applications for 67 residents without their signature or effective consent, while purporting to act as their agent.
Therefore, if true, not only were illegal ballots cast, but the developmentally disabled were victimized along the way.
And the news release makes clear several of the individuals misrepresented aren’t even allowed to legally vote:
Under Texas law, only a parent, spouse or child who is a qualified voter of the county may act as an agent in registering a person to vote, after being appointed to do so by that person. None of the SSLC patients gave effective consent to be registered, and a number of them have been declared totally mentally incapacitated by a court, thereby making them ineligible to vote in Texas.
