Deborah Peoples is a former Tarrant County Democratic Party chair and two-time candidate for Fort Worth mayor.

After two runs for Fort Worth mayor, Deborah Peoples, 69, is ready for her next chapter as Tarrant County judge.

“I am this unique blend of corporate and community,” Peoples told the Forth Worth Report. “What I bring is not only my wealth of experience, but my ability to problem solve and my commitment to the citizens.”

She is challenging Republican Timothy O’Hare to succeed the retiring Glen Whitley as the highest elected official in Tarrant County.

But there’s one major problem.

Last week, The Gateway Pundit released police body camera footage that shows an officer talking to a homeless man named, Charles Jackson, a felon previously convicted of voter fraud in 2019, who claims Deborah Peoples and her associate Stuart Clegg paid him $200 for every ballot that he fraudulently acquired from elderly voters.

Furthermore, Jackson claims that he filled out ballots “five days a week” for “six months” and that Deborah and Stuart paid him on average “$900 to $1200 a week” in “cash” including “bonuses” and a “moped” for ballots that he voted “all Democrat.”

The footage was released last week, but the corporate media has been completely silent about the video, and Deborah Peoples hasn’t even put out a public statement in response

On May 3, 2019, presidential candidate Beto O’rourke joins a campaign rally in Forth Worth, Texas, for Deborah Peoples, who would lose her bid for Forth Worth mayor that year to Republican incumbent Betsy Price.

JACKSON: “Each time I get someone to sign they gave me $200.”

OFFICER: “To sign the absentee ballot?”

JACKSON: “Yeah, but that wasn’t easy though, those people were 65 and older you know.”

OFFICER: “How many people you get to sign?”

JACKSON: “One day I got like $1200 in like four hours.”

OFFICER: “Did you fill out anything or did you have them fill it out?”

JACKSON: “No, I filled it out while I was talking to them, and then I switched it around, and let them sign it.”

OFFICER: “So you voted everyone for them?”

JACKSON: “Yeah, yeah pretty much. You know once you vote one just vote all Democrat… and they wasn’t intending to do that.”

Sen. Kamala Harris spoke with Deborah Peoples, then Tarrant County Democratic Party chair, during an event in Grapevine, Texas, in March 2019.

OFFICER: “How would you get them to sign?”

JACKSON: “I was told to tell them we were just making sure what we got in the system is correct. And they already had the information; they had their name, their kids name, or how old they was, their birthday, their phone number. I would say is this information correct? They said yeah and I said well sign if it’s correct. Once they signed then they voted.”

OFFICER: “So was that paper ballot or on the computer?”

JACKSON: “Both. Tablet was in my hand and I had paper as well.”

OFFICER: “So then you would take it back to?”

JACKSON: “Stuart Clegg and Deborah Peoples. She was the district Chair for Democratic headquarters.”

OFFICER: “How much money did you make?”

JACKSON: “I did it for like six months man. I had gotten a room at the Echo. Stayed up there for six months… Every day I got someone to sign you know.”

OFFICER: “So in six months’ time how much do you think roughly?”

JACKSON: “I’d say on average at least $900 or $1200 a week. Five days a week.”


On October 10, 2018, a grand jury indicted Leticia Sanchez, Leticia Sanchez Tepichin, Maria Solis, and Laura Parra on a cumulative 30 felony counts of voter fraud following an investigation by Attorney General Ken Paxton’s office. “The defendants were members of an organized voter fraud ring and were paid to target elderly voters in certain northern Fort Worth precincts in a scheme to generate large numbers of mail ballots, then harvest those ballots for specific candidates,” NBC DFW reported. “When ballots were mailed out by election offices, the fraudsters attempted either to intercept the ballots or to ‘assist’ elderly voters in voting their ballots to ensure votes were cast for the fraudsters’ choice.” Source: DailyWire

In court documents, state prosecutors alleged former Tarrant County Democratic Party executive director Stuart Clegg funneled money to Leticia Sanchez, one of four paid campaign workers arrested and charged with submitting false and forged mail-ballot requests in an organized criminal voter fraud scheme.

When Sanchez learned that state police investigators were interviewing members of her “vote harvesting group,” she directed Tepichin to send a text message to the crew “conveying a message from Sanchez and Stuart Clegg to not cooperate with investigators,” the notice states.

The message, sent in Spanish, translated stated: “Hello, there is a group of malicious people investigating our work. We have been told by our boss, Mr. Stuart, that we should not give any information. Just give them the phone number of the lawyer who is in charge of this matter. If anyone has contacted you, asked any type of questions, please tell us immediately so we can let the lawyer know,” according to the Star-Telegram.

Clegg was never charged for a crime.


OFFICER: “Would they pay you cash?”

JACKSON: “Cash.”

OFFICER: “So who would actually give you the cash?”

JACKSON: “Stuart. Deborah gave me cash too. Stuart gave me cash. Rubin gave me cash. Then they gave me bonuses and they bought me a moped.”

OFFICER: “How’d you meet them?”

JACKSON: “I was on Race street and they had a rake and a shovel and I was going and trying to find work. You know how the grass grows on the sidewalks. So I done that you know [inaudible]. You can come back tomorrow and do my flowers. Well, I done that too you know. Well, you can come by tomorrow.”

OFFICER: “Who was saying this to you?”

JACKSON: “Deborah Peoples. And then she called Stuart Clegg to come over and said he’s a good worker you know. He said hey man come on and help me put these signs out. So I start putting signs out and then I start working the polls and then I start doing a lot of things.”

Jackson told the police officer that he was initially “bailed out by Stuart Clegg” and placed under a “gag order”, and that he was later sentenced to ten days in prison for voter fraud.

At the time, news coverage claimed there was no evidence that Jackson’s case was related to the indictment of the four women: Leticia Sanchez, Leticia Sanchez Tepichin, Maria Solis, and Laura Parra, but this newly released footage indicates that Jackson was also being paid by Stuart Clegg, and furthermore, that he was also being paid by, Deborah Peoples, the current Democratic nominee for the highest elected position in the 15th most populous county in the United States.

Last Friday, the Tarrant County Republican Party released a statement that calls for an investigation into the matter saying, “In the video, the individual explained to a police officer that Ms. Peoples directed him to target the elderly, steal their votes, and harvest those votes for specific candidates in the 2016 election.”

Timothy O’Hare is the Republican nominee for Tarrant County judge.

With less than 45-days to go until the election, let’s help Mr. O’Hare, the Tarrant County GOP, and the entire country bring attention to the fact that, Charles Jackson, a felon previously convicted of voter fraud, accused Deborah Peoples and Stuart Clegg of paying him “$200 in cash” for “six months” for every ballot that he fraudulently acquired from elderly voters — and Deborah Peoples is still the current Democratic nominee for Tarrant County judge.

Upgrading election management system approved – Daily News

Most precincts in the US have 2000 – 5000 voters.  Assume you have 30 poll workers.  If you have a Dem and Rep together counting votes, that’s  333 ballots per team. How long can it take to count votes: 2 hrs max is my calc. mrossol

WASHINGTON COUNTY — The Washington County Executive Committee voted to upgrade the county’s election management system, and to do a full recount of select state and federal elections, during their meeting on Wednesday.

“What we’re looking at doing is beginning to program all of our elections here, in-house, rather than contracting with [Dominion Voting Systems] as we have in the past,” said Washington County Clerk Ashley Reichert.

According to Reichert, her predecessor had previously programmed the election machines used by the county in-house, until April of 2016 when they had decided to switch to Dominion voting machines and contract the work out through Dominion.

Currently, the county has the “lite” version of the software used for the voting machines, and would need to pay for upgrading to the full version so they can start programming the machines in-house again. The county will be able to use the same voting machines with the full version of the program.

“It’s the same software, it’s just a program that gives me the capability of inputting all of the data that I compile already,” said Reichert. “Then I’m able to actually put it all together and finalize it all rather than having Dominion do so.”

The cost of upgrading the software and training staff is estimated to be up to $75,000, according to the committee report.

Reichert said this will also lead to ongoing expenses for the county for increased fees, but they will be included in her budget moving forward and would go through a budget amendment in the future.

According to Reichert, one of the fee increases is $11,000 more than the county currently pays. The other is for $20,000 for training and support in programming as they switch to doing it in-house, but it will only be for a year or so.

“I think this is something that Ashley should be commended for. I think anything we can do to pull things away from Dominion and have more control, and Ashley, who I think does a phenomenal job, to be able to have her hands on it, is a positive,” said County Executive Josh Schoemann.

“I’d like to also echo those same comments. I think we need to make our public aware that we’re bringing so much more of this control in-house, inside the county,” said County Supervisor Caroll Merry.

The committee voted unanimously to approve the use of up to $75,000 in strategic priority funds to upgrade the county’s election system management software.

The committee then voted on doing a full recount by hand of the governor, lieutenant governor and U.S. senator elections in the general election on Nov. 8.

According to Reichert, the county audits every election held, by choice.

Normally, the county will randomly select two reporting units in the county and then hand-count the ballots in two of the races in the election and compare the results with the voting machine tabulations.

“What we are suggesting doing for the 2022 general election is hand-counting the entire county as a part of an audit doing the top state race and the top federal race, which would be governor, lieutenant governor and then the U.S. Senate race, and hand-counting all of those,” said Reichert.

According to Reichert, the expense of the recount is up to $50,000, and would be paid for by the county and not the individual municipalities. The funding would come out of the strategic priority fund.

She added that she doesn’t believe the recount would cost the full $50,000, as in 2016 the full recount cost roughly $36,000.

“Here again, I think we need to commend the clerk’s office for taking a step forward on this,” said Merry. “Just another effort to reassure the voters of Washington County that we’re trying to stay ahead of any potential fraud.”

He added that it is important to show that Washington County is doing everything they can to ensure voter integrity.

“We take voter integrity, election integrity, seriously,” added County Supervisor Jodi Schulteis.

The committee voted unanimously to approve the use of up to $50,000 in strategic priority funds to be used for a full recount of the governor, lieutenant governor and U.S. Senate races by hand.

County Supervisor Chris Bossert recused himself from discussion and voting on the hand recount matter, because he is a poll worker for West Bend.

The Executive Committee’s next meeting will be held at 4 p.m. on Oct. 19 in the Herbert J. Tennies Government Center, and it will be live streamed on the county’s YouTube channel.

Flint Clerk Resigns After Failing To Balance Partisan Poll Watchers

Flint, Michigan’s longtime city clerk is retiring after an election integrity group sent a letter to her office demanding she balance out the number of Democrat and Republican election inspectors.

On Sept. 6, Pure Integrity Michigan Elections (PIME) and attorney Erick Kaardal of the Thomas More Society sent a demand letter to Flint and City Clerk Inez Brown threatening legal action if they do not balance out the number of partisan poll watchers before the November general election. As previously reported, during Flint’s Aug. 2 primary, the city hired 422 Democrats compared to just 27 Republican election inspectors — in direct violation of a Michigan state statute that requires equal representation of party election inspectors.

On Sept. 8, Brown, after serving as Flint’s city clerk for 25 years, abruptly announced her resignation effective Sept. 30 — roughly one month before the November election. Brown gave no reason for her resignation and caught city officials by surprise.

“My administrative office was taken by surprise,” Flint Mayor Sheldon Neeley told the Flint Beat. “I had no foreknowledge of this occurring this soon.” Because of Brown’s resignation, Neeley reached out to Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson’s office for help running the city’s elections. Benson is up for re-election this year, raising questions about the ethics of her involvement in Flint’s elections.

“Can her office be considered impartial in running the elections in Flint?” Patrice Johnson, chair of PIME told The Federalist. “The law states that if you are running for office, you cannot be an election inspector in the precinct in which you’re running.”

Despite such questions, Johnson sees Brown’s resignation as a step in the right direction. Brown’s tenure as Flint city clerk has led to multiple controversies, including giving mayoral candidates the wrong filing deadline in 2015 and alleged failure to process absentee ballots.

 

“The pressure we’ve put on the city led to this,” Johnson said. “This is a HUGE win.”

Regardless of Brown’s resignation, Johnson expects Flint to fully comply with PIME’s demand letter and balance its number of partisan election inspectors in time for the November election.

“In a state with more than 7 million registered voters, and where an election inspector need not live in the precinct in which they work, there is no excuse for an unhealthy imbalance of workers at our township and municipal elections,” she said.

C&C. Russian Election. Head-scarf Mandates. Myocarditis?

Source: Coffee & Covid ☙ Saturday, September 24, 2022 ☙ DOTS

🗞*WORLD NEWS AND COMMENTARY* 🗞

🚀 Russia is already holding referendums in the occupied territories of Ukraine, which make up about 20% of the country. There are only two boxes on each ballot: a box to join Russia and a box to remain in Ukraine. Depending on which ‘side’ you are on, the referendum is either a shining example of democratic self-determination, or it’s a disgusting travesty of a sham election. In fact, the Economist’s story about the referendum this morning even has the word ‘sham’ right in the headline:

I won’t list all the various elections issues Remainers are rightfully complaining about, there are a lot. But one is that the election is being run by armed Russian soldiers, which might tend to depress the Remain vote for some reason. And the election’s lightning speed leaves no time for campaigning, education, or even any real discussion. Just hurry up and vote! Third, Remainers validly complain that many pro-Remain voters fled when the Russians occupied the zone, reducing their voting bloc.

On the other hand, the Russians appear to be making every effort to be transparent; for example, the soldier/proctors clearly don’t object to being recorded on video, and — from what I can tell — citizens are even being allowed to record video INSIDE polling locations, which you can’t do in Florida. I have seen no complaints about cheating or backdoor ballot deliveries or secret suitcases of ballots under tables.

Even better, they aren’t using machines. No electronics. It’s just paper. I wish America would go back to paper. The machines are a problem.

Remainers in the occupied territories also have understandable gripes about the legitimacy of the vote in general. To them, it probably feels a lot like it would feel here if the Mexican cartels held a “referendum” in South Texas about whether a bunch of Texas counties should join Mexico. Um, problem.

On the other hand, the referendum would have no chance at all if there weren’t a large group of Ukrainians in the territories, obviously profoundly unhappy with their existing government, who clearly prefer to live under Russian rule. It might even be a majority; there’s no way to tell now.

Pro-Ukraine Remainers are allowed to protest and rally:

Pro-Russia voters seem happy to vote to leave Ukraine:

Maybe even a whole LOT of them:

And the Russians may have invited foreign observers to monitor the fairness of the elections:

I can’t vouch for any of the videos; I’m just including them for flavor. During my research, I found pictures and videos of rallies and protests that were re-used from other past events, sometimes other causes, sometimes even the other side of the issue. So who knows? Everybody is lying.

There’s a strategic reason Russia is racing to complete the referendums. Once the occupied territories become part of Russia — a result that seems inevitable at this point — then Russia can claim self-defense, and can legally access previously-unavailable military tools. That’s where all the nuclear talk (on both sides) comes from.

This new strategy is Russia’s response to the recent Ukrainian military gains in the occupied territories. Russia has done this before; it was the strategy it used to annex Crimea. So Western military experts should have easily predicted this would happen, but of course, well, you know. Our brain-damaged experts have been completely useless for ages. They’re just bleating packs of ‘yes’ men now, apparently.

Swirling internet rumors suggest that the warp speed Russian mobilization announced this week is secretly a whole lot bigger than 300,000 new troops. Since I can’t confirm it from any official Russian source, I won’t cite the figures. Whether it’s 300,000, or more than 300,000, the timing suggests that the new troops will be used to hold the annexed territories. In other words, Russia could end the war by just hunkering down, loudly claiming legal entitlement to the annexed regions, and threatening a nuclear response to any continued hostility.

So get ready for all the people who claimed the 2020 U.S. elections were the fairest and cleanest elections in history to start bitterly complaining about the Russian referendum election. And, whereas criticizing U.S. election results makes you a domestic terrorist and an insurrectionist, the schizophrenic psyops teams are going to try to make it your moral duty to criticize the Ukraine election, including all-new Facebook profile flags or ribbons or something.

If you say the Ukraine elections were fair, you’re also a terrorist or insurrectionist or whatever. You can follow this, right? Criticizing U.S. elections = bad. Criticizing Ukraine elections = good.

It’s so simple!

🚀 Iran has been roiled with country-wide protests by thousands and thousands of angry women who are sick and tired of being threatened into wearing the muslim hijab, or headscarf. The genesis of the massive waves of unrest is disquietingly similar to the George Floyd protests here in the U.S. in the summer of 2020.

Iran must deal decisively with protests, president says reut.rs/3xOM1Uu

Image

What is undisputed is that a 22-year-old woman, Mahsa Amini, was arrested in Iran for not having her hijab on properly. According to reports, she was wearing a hijab, but it wasn’t the right kind or was out of place or something. After being arrested, she fell into a coma and several days later, she died. Widespread rumors in Iran claimed she was beaten to death, but Iranian authorities claimed Amini suffered from “pre-existing conditions.”

Sound familiar?

Mostly-peaceful protests broke out all over the country. Thousands of Iranians have been arrested, all over Iran, according to regional reports, and at least eight people have been outright killed by security forces.

Iran’s Interior Minister Ahmad Vahidi told media that the government’s initial investigation showed it had done nothing wrong. “Reports from oversight bodies were received, witnesses were interviewed, videos were reviewed, forensic opinions were obtained, and it was found that there had been no beating,” Vahidi claimed. In a statement last week, Tehran police said right after her arrest, Amini “suddenly suffered from a heart problem” and was “immediately taken to hospital”.

But Amini’s father says the 22-year-old had no pre-existing health problems, and he says the police are responsible for her death.

Hmm. You know, I can think of ONE reason that an otherwise healthy 22-year-old might experience sudden and unexpected heart problems, especially when under stress. It’s given in two doses. But I’m not allowed to name it on Facebook, so mum’s the word. And I doubt the officials are going to suggest that possibility, either.

Seventy-four percent of Iranians are vaccinated:

Iran didn’t use the mRNA vaccines, but it did use AstraZeneca, well-known to have similar problems to the mRNA jabs. It would be ironic, wouldn’t it, if the government’s vaccine policy led to a George Floyd event? They can’t tell the truth to stop the protests, because that would probably lead to other protests. It’s a conundrum.

I don’t know; I’m not saying anything. I’m just saying.

Finally, mandatory headscarves are a lot like mandatory masks. Both are religiously based and include strong associations with social conformity and government compliance.

So.

💉 God bless him, Tucker Carlson continues courageously reporting on problems with the jabs. Most recently, he discussed a Lancet study following up with kids 12-29 who suffered from myocarditis. Almost a third of the studied kids required chronic medication to manage the condition at three months, and a fifth (20%) said they still experienced pain.

Tucker also reported on Presbyterian Hospital’s goofy new advertisement for pediatric myocarditis — a condition that used to be so rare nobody’d ever heard of it before last year. People are upset at Presbyterian, not because it ran the ad — treating these vaccine injuries is important, as is awareness — but they are understandably upset because the ad ignores what CAUSED the kids’ heart damage.

True, so far it’s only Tucker. But Tucker’s audience exceeds the combined totals of the other networks. And there are signs the signal is getting through the noise: booster uptake is pitiful. NBC ran a story yesterday headlined, “Less Than 2% of Eligible People Have Gotten Updated Covid Booster Shots, 3 Weeks Into the Rollout.”

Oh no. (Sad emoji.)

NBC reported Dr. Scott Roberts, a Yale Medicine infectious disease expert, called the relatively low booster uptake “demoralizing.” He’s demoralized! He explained glumly, “I would expect a much higher proportion of Americans to have gotten the booster by this point.”

Dash it! Disappointed expectations!

Dr. Eeyore, I mean Dr. Roberts, blamed Joe Biden for the new jab’s pitiful performance, and he isn’t too optimistic about its future prospects either. “The fact that this booster came out days before Biden said the pandemic is over is a huge mixed message,” he sighed. “Now it’s going to be that much harder to convince those at risk who are on the fence to get a booster.”

Poor, poor experts. 🎻

Still, nearly 5 million Americans have taken the new shot, even though, as NBC admitted in its article, the jabs “were distributed without results from human trials.” There are a lot of customers who want even MORE spike protein out there, they can’t get enough of the stuff, and as long as that holds, and as long as the rivers of cash keep flowing, they’ll keep making them.

As for me, nope. No thanks. I’m doing fine!

Have a wonderful weekend. Enjoy this cooler weather, and I’ll be back on Monday with some seasonal pumpkin-spiced Coffee & Covid for you.
