The Harris County Republican party has filed a 22-page lawsuit against the county and its Election Administrator, Clifford Tatum.
GOP attorney Andy Taylor says “this election was so botched that there’s no way to be confident in the outcomes in the close races. You literally cannot ascertain the winner vs. the loser."
Harris County GOP Chair Cindy Siegel added, “we’ve seen more problems, more egregious problems, that we saw last Tuesday. Staffing problems, polls not opening on time, they didn’t have the equipment. There were many polls that had maybe a third of its equipment working and the most egregious was that we had polls that actually ran out of paper."
Gov. Abbott also says he's ordered the state to investigate Harris County & the election administrator.
“the allegations of election improprieties in our state's largest county may result from anything ranging from malfeasance to blatant criminal conduct. Voters in Harris County deserve to know what happened. Integrity in the election process is essential. To achieve that standard, a thorough investigation is warranted."
