HOUSTON — Today, the Texas Secretary of State released its preliminary findings regarding the audit of the November 2022 election run by the Harris County Democrat-appointed and unelected Elections Administrator.
“Unfortunately, the Texas Secretary of State findings are not surprising, but damning nonetheless,” said Harris County GOP Chairman Cindy Siegel.
“Harris County grassroots Republicans, election workers, and candidates have testified to the issues mentioned in the report countless times, whether to the media, the Texas Legislature, in a court of law, and fellow voters. We’ve known how broken the system is long before this audit, but we’re thankful it’s all coming to light.
“This report proves that the way elections were run under an elections administrator was broken. I’m thankful the elections administrator’s office has been eliminated. Now, instead of voters being beholden to an appointed, unelected bureaucrat who has failed at the job, they’ll have hiring and firing power over the duly elected county clerk who will be running future elections.
“Accountability and transparency matters, and I look forward to seeing the full report soon.”
