The Texas Democratic Party has jumped in on the political theater concerning voting irregularities in Harris County:
“Today, we call on Harris County DA Kim Ogg to stop enabling Texas Republicans’ insidious efforts to silence Black and Brown Houstonians.”
A couple of days after the Harris County Republican Party had their asses handed to them, again, even after spending millions of dollars from a few donors, they started whining and encouraged Greg Abbott to investigate voting irregularities in Harris County. And on cue, he did as did Ogg. From Houston Public Media:
Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg has opened an investigation into possible criminal conduct in the county’s administration of last week’s midterm election
Ogg has a beef with the Commissioners Court particularly with Judge Hidalgo and it has been out in full display for the last 4 years. Even if the beef is justified the response to the issue by the DA is much like a bull in a China store looking for the nearest reporter or TV camera. It’s getting old. It’s petty. It’s what we expect from a MAGAt republican not from a Normal Republican or Democrat.
The DA could have addressed this like an adult cautioning everyone to take a deep breath, let the audits and investigations play out before making comments or speculating about criminal activity. Instead she threw gasoline on the fire called the “Big Lie” perpetuating this incredible stupidity created by Trump, Abbott, and Paxton.
Personally I am pretty pissed how the DAs office has handled this situation as well as the primaries and the constant dispute with the Commissioners Court. It’s not what we expect from our elected officials unless they are MAGAts.
The primary season begins Jan of 2024.
