AUSTIN, TX – We have been told for the past few months that the election was safe and secure. We were told that widespread voter fraud was a myth and that it simply did not exist.
Even now, we are told that the election was safe and secure, and yet, every day more instances of voter fraud are being reported on, like in Austin, Texas, where a social worker has been charged with multiple counts of election fraud.
?Texas Charges Social Worker With 134 Felony Counts Involving Election Fraud

The social worker, Kelly Reagan Brunner, who works in the Mexia State Supported Living Center, was charged with 134 counts of election fraud by the Texas Attorney General’s Office Election Fraud Unit.
Brunner, if convicted, could receive a maximum sentence of ten years in prison.
Brunner, who works in a center that assists people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, allegedly submitted voter registration applications for 67 residents without their signature or effective consent. Brunner claimed that she was acting as an agent for the people.
The big issue for this, beyond the fact that this was done for people that may lack the ability to formulate an opinion on their own, is that the only people that can do that are the subject’s parents, spouse, or child of the person.
And even then, that can only be done when the person is effectively able to appoint that person to so in court.
According to the Attorney General’s Office, none of the people who Brunner did this for had the ability to or gave effective consent to Brunner to do this. On top of that, the Attorney General cites that many of the people had been declared mentally incapacitated in court, which makes the ineligible to vote in the state of Texas.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said:
“I strongly commend the Limestone County District Attorney’s Office, Sheriff’s Office, and Elections Office, as well as the Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General for their outstanding work on this case and their commitment to ensuring a free and fair Presidential election in the face of unprecedented voter fraud.
“Registering citizens to vote or to obtain mail in ballots without their consent is illegal. It is particularly offensive when individuals purport to be champions for disability rights, when in reality they are abusing our most vulnerable citizens in order to gain access to their ballots and amplify their own political voice.
My office is prepared to assist any Texas county in combating this insidious form of fraud.”
Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott spoke about the fraud, tweeting:
“Election fraud is real. In Texas, we investigate and prosecute it. Today a Limestone County social worker was charged with 134 felony counts involving election fraud. All states must take election fraud seriously to ensure confidence in elections.”

This is not the first arrest for voter fraud in the State of Texas. In September of 2020, Paxton also announced arrests of several people who allegedly participating in illegally harvesting ballots in the 2018 Democratic primary.
Four people were charged for 134 felony counts of election fraud and ballot tampering. The four people charged were Charlie Burns, Dewayne Ward, Marlena Jackson and her husband, Shannon Brown. Brown, who is a democrat, was also serving as the Gregg County’s Precinct 4 Commissioner.
In that case, the group is alleged of collecting the ballots of people who were able to make it to the polls or to a mailbox on their own, but claimed that they were disabled which gave them the ability to harvest the ballots.
Texas law only allowed, at the time, that ballots could be mailed in for those people that are over 65 years of age, in jail, or has a physical disability or medical condition that impairs them from voting normally.
If all four are convicted, they could face up to 99 years in prison.

FBI now investigating Trump ballots from military which were thrown in trash in Pennsylvania
September 26, 2020
LUZERNE COUNTY, PA – President Donald Trump and many Republicans have voiced concerns over voter fraud in terms of mail in and absentee balloting in the upcoming general election.
There have already been many reports of widespread voting fraud and some are saying that’s just what happened in Pennsylvania.
Now, what is reported as a small number of thrown out ballots in Pennsylvania is started quite a stir. Apparently, some votes that came in from military voters had been thrown into the trash. The claim is that these ballots were not thrown out intentionally, but rather by some type of administrative error on the part of a temporary employee.
The Luzerne County Manager, C David Pedri, claimed that they were unaware until recently which votes had been thrown out. Pedri claimed that the error was a result of a temporary employee which improperly discarded of the nine ballots. Seven of those ballots were cast for President Trump, the other two were unknown. Pedri said:
“Luzerne County Elections staff were unaware for whom the ballots were cast until the disclosure via Press Release of the United States Attorney on September 24, 2020.”
Elections officials noted that the temporary employee began working for them on September 14th. The fact that the ballots were improperly discarded was discovered by Luzerne County Elections Director Shelby Watchilla. Pedri said:
“Ms. Watchilla immediately began in internal inquiry and informed her direct supervisor. The temporary independent contractor was removed from service and informed not to return.”
Watchilla then contacted the Luzerne County Office of Law who looked into the facts of the case and properly determined that the incident needed to be reported to officials. Once the demand to notify was clear, authorities reported the incident to the local District Attorney’s Office.
Pedri claimed that all of the garbage that had accumulated from the time of the issue until they found it only occurred during a three day time period. As a result, all garbage from that time period was allegedly separated and secured. Pedri said:
“Each bag of garbage from the entire building in the dumpster was searched by the Federal Bureau of Investigations, the Luzerne County District Attorney’s Office, Pennsylvania State Police as well as Luzerne County staff.
“All items of concern were taken into custody by the Federal Bureau of Investigations.”
Pedri claims that the ballots in which were not opened cannot be until a canvass has ben completed. Pedri said:
“[Luzerne County] will attempt to contact the voters involved and process their votes.”
The county, in combination with the Pennsylvania Department of State will incorporate some type of extra training to all elections staff to ensure all rules and laws are followed. They have also installed a security video surveillance system which will allegedly ensure that the current rules and laws are followed.
A Justice Department official informed ABC news that the Attorney General, William Barr, had briefed President Trump on the issue. The President noted the issue and pointed out various credible allegations of voter fraud.
