Harris County GOP Statement on Texas Secretary of State Election Audit
“All Harris County voters, regardless of their political party, should support the Secretary of State stepping in to conduct a comprehensive audit of the 2020 election to protect their right to free, fair, and secure elections. Unfortunately, Harris County officials have been deceiving voters regarding the election process and refused to investigate reports of potential fraud and irregularities filed by election clerks and poll watchers.
“As a CPA, I believe in transparency, but Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo shows time and time again that transparency and accountability are not her priority. While our state lawmakers are putting resources towards a comprehensive and transparent audit of our election process, Judge Hidalgo is focused on funneling $11 million in taxpayer dollars to a partisan operative under the guise of COVID outreach. If there really are no cases of election fraud in the third largest county in the nation like Judge Hidalgo claims, then why wouldn’t she support the Secretary of State doing it’s job and performing the audit? Judge Hidalgo, what are you hiding?” – Harris County Republican Party Chairman Cindy Siegel
