Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick Offers Up To $1M Reward For 'Voter Fraud Whistleblowers And Tipsters'

HOUSTON, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) - Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick announced Tuesday, Nov. 10, he will pay up to $1 million from his campaign account to incentivize, encourage and reward people to come forward and report voter fraud form anywhere in the country.

"Whistleblowers and tipsters should turn over their evidence to local law enforcement. Anyone who provides information that leads to an arrest and final conviction of voter fraud will be paid a minimum of $25,000," said Lt. Gov. Patrick in a news release.

Joe Biden became President-elect on Saturday when he surpassed 270 electoral votes when he won Pennsylvania.

"I support President Trump's efforts to identify voter fraud in the presidential election and his commitment to making sure that every legal vote is counted and every illegal vote is disqualified. President Trump's pursuit of voter fraud is not only essential to determine the outcome of this election, it is essential to maintain our democracy and restore faith in future elections."

At this point, no one has presented any evidence of widespread voter fraud.

Lt. Gov. Patrick went on to say in a statement:

"The Democrats have no one to blame but themselves for creating suspicion of final vote totals. Not allowing Republican poll watchers to observe the vote count in multiple states, in some cases blocking their view with poster board, last minute changes in election laws in battleground states, ignoring the deadline to vote and accepting ballots for days after the election, ignoring postmarks and signature checks, not verifying that mail-in ballots were being sent to people who were alive or living in the state and voting machines that have been a concern for over a decade all raise serious questions.

"This lack of transparency has led many to believe that the final count is not accurate in states where the winner was determined be a very small percentage of the vote.

"In Texas we know voter fraud is real. In just the last 60 days, we have had three major arrests on voter fraud including a social worker who was arrested last week for allegedly registering almost 70 developmentally disabled adults to vote without their signature or consent.

"In Texas, we also know that it is possible to provide the results of mail-in ballots on Election Day. We counted 970,000 mail-in ballots last Tuesday - a 55% increase over 2018 - and added those results to the in-person voting total before midnight on Election Day. The delays in counting mail-in ballots in other states raises more questions about voter fraud and potential mistakes.

"When all legal votes are tallied and all illegal votes are discarded, then America can have a greater level of confidence in the election process.

"President Trump is absolutely right to pursue every allegation of voter fraud and irregularities, just as Al Gore did in 2000. Every candidate for public office has this right. My goal is to ensure that, regardless of the outcome, every American has faith in our electoral process and our democracy."

This is the guy responsible for this kind of thinking last March:

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick implied late Monday that the senior population should be willing to sacrifice themselves so the United States can “get back to work” amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“Those of us who are 70 plus, we’ll take care of ourselves. But don’t sacrifice the country,” Patrick, who turns 70 next week, said on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“No one reached out to me and said, ‘As a senior citizen, are you willing to take a chance on your survival in exchange for keeping the America that America loves for its children and grandchildren?’" Patrick said on Fox News Monday night. “And if that is the exchange, I’m all in.”

I'm a little disappointed that he is still around.

There's another gem on Yahoo news that says Trumps loss took the heat off of Abbott & Patrick and that Texas Dems won't be all that

gung ho when these two are up for reelection, now that they don't have to do the 2 step to stay in trumps graces

Apparently a guy with a million dollars burning a hole in his pocket. 

Or

More likely, a guy trying to look good to all the right wing nut voters in a slowly turning blue Texas, who knows there is little or no chance of having to pay out.

In other words, "we have nothing, so pretty please with sugar on top, we'll reward anyone that can come up with something."

And here I thought they had so much evidence of rampant fraud..... jrSmiley_87_smiley_image.gif
