Judge Russell Casey, an incumbent in Tarrant Country Texas, has been caught forging signatures on his petition for ballot access, and proceeded to lie about it after being caught red-handed.
The Tarrant County Republican Party said it is investigating an allegation that Casey, Precinct 3 Justice of the Peace, submitted fake signatures to get on the ballot in the March primary.
When reached by phone shortly Monday afternoon, Casey told WFAA that Lopez’s “allegation is completely false” and that every signature came from bona fide voters.
“They’re all from real people,” Casey said. “They were all collected.”
But Aaron Harris, from Direct Action Texas which investigates electoral fraud, said he organized a team to go door-to-door over the weekend and ask individuals listed on Casey’s petition whether they actually signed it.
Several dozen people, Harris said, signed notarized affidavits explaining that they did not put their names on it.This post was originally published on this site
