Dan Patrick, lieutenant governor of Texas, has announced a $1 million reward offered to those who have evidence of voter fraud that leads to a conviction from anywhere in the United States.
In a statement on Tuesday, Nov. 10, Patrick announced that he will pay the sum of money from his campaign account to the whistleblowers and tipsters who could turn over their evidence of voter fraud to local law enforcement.
“Anyone who provides information that leads to an arrest and final conviction of voter fraud will be paid a minimum of $25,000,” he said.
Patrick said in the statement that he supports President Donald Trump’s legal efforts to identify voter fraud in the presidential election and his commitment to making sure that every legal vote is counted and every illegal vote is disqualified.
“President Trump’s pursuit of voter fraud is not only essential to determine the outcome of this election, it is essential to maintain our democracy and restore faith in future elections,” Patrick announced.
Patrick claimed that the Democrats have raised serious questions after “not allowing Republican poll watchers to observe the vote count in multiple states, in some cases blocking their view with poster board, last minute changes in election laws in battleground states, ignoring the deadline to vote, and accepting ballots for days after the election, ignoring postmarks and signature checks, not verifying that mail-in ballots were being sent to people who were alive or living in the state.”
“This lack of transparency has led many to believe that the final count is not accurate in states where the winner was determined be a very small percentage of the vote,” he said. He continued, “Democrats have no one to blame but themselves for creating suspicion of final vote totals.”
Patrick pointed to the case in his state, where three major arrests on voter fraud were found in last 60 days, including a social worker who was arrested for allegedly registering almost 70 developmentally disabled adults to vote without their signature or consent.
Patrick said that America could have a greater level of confidence in the election process once all legal votes are tallied and all illegal votes are discarded.
Some legacy media have called Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden as the projected winner though the Nov. 3 election is still waiting on the final ballot counts.
President Trump and his team are preparing to mount legal challenges in several states over claims of massive fraud and corruption due to the mail-in voting systems.
In a tweet on Tuesday, the president again called the election “rigged,” saying that American people will not accept it.
