Republican Texas State Senator Brian Birdwell Appears To Have Voted Twice In Same Election—Photo Of Glass House

Texas Republican State Senator Brian Birdwell from the Waco area apparently cast two votes in the 2004 Presidential election.

It is also not clear if Mr. Birdwell meets the residency requirements to serve in the Texas legislature.

Here is the story from the Texas Tribune.

From the story—

The newest member of the Texas Senate and Waco’s newest representative to that body, Granbury Republican Brian Birdwell, voted in the November 2004 presidential election twice — an apparent violation of law — making his choice between George W. Bush and John Kerry in Tarrant County in Texas and again in Prince William County, Va., according to election records in the two states.

The Tribune report also says Mr. Birdwell voted in Virginia in 2006. If this is the case, then Mr. Birdwell could not have lived in Texas long enough to be eligible to serve in the legislature. You have to live in Texas for five years to be able to serve in the legislature.

Republicans in Texas go on and on about voter fraud. They say that unless we pass a so-called Voter ID bill that we’ll overwhelmed with illegals and fraudsters casting ballots to elect Democrats.

Republicans go on about this alleged voter fraud despite the fact that hardly any cases of voter fraud can be found in Texas.

The Texas Republicans who live in the Glass House must have been out collecting Green Party ballot access signatures when this picture was taken.
