The Democrats say they’re going to “turn Texas blue” in November by handing Joe Biden the victory in the Lone Star State.
But if the state goes blue for the first time since 1976 it may not be because Texas is suddenly going progressive.
According to a new complaint, the Democrats are trying to cheat their way to victory with a ballot harvesting scheme – one investigators say is linked directly to the Biden campaign.

And it’s exactly the kind of scheme that President Donald Trump has warned of and railed against as Democratic political operatives are accused of manipulating absentee ballots to help their candidate.
Two private investigators filed sworn affidavits alleging that Dallas Jones – named just last month as Biden’s political director in Texas – and two others are involved in the plot.
One of the investigators, former FBI agent Charles Marler, said in an affidavit obtained by the National File website that “ballot harvesters” removed absentee ballots intended for nursing homes, homeless people and others from mailboxes.
“The ballot harvesters then complete the ballots for their preferred candidate and forge the signature of the ‘voter,’” he wrote, adding he has two witnesses at the Harris County Clerk’s office.
He also offered his cooperation to law enforcement investigating the scheme.
The other investigator, retired police Capt. Mark A. Aguirre, wrote in his own affidavit that the plot represents “voter fraud on a massive scale,” that’s “being run by the elite politicians of the Democrat Party in Houston/Hams County.”
Aguirre wrote that he has videotaped interviews detailing the “ballot harvesting scheme,” one instance he said involves “thousands of absentee and mail-in ballots” including ballots intended for the dead, the homeless and nursing home residents.
State Sen. Borris Miles, D-Houston, who is named in the affidavits, denied any wrong doing.
“I don’t do that, I don’t have a team that does that, and I’ve never had somebody else’s mail ballot in my hands,” Miles told the Texas Tribune.
The affidavits are part of a suit filed against the state of Texas and Harris County, according to National File.
And it’s not the only ballot issue they’re having in the county.
Another lawsuit against Harris County claims that hundreds of non-citizens have registered to vote there.
Fox 26 in Houston is reporting that an open records request filed by Public Interest Legal Foundation revealed that non-citizens have been registering to vote there from the 1990s right up through this year.
“In essence what we have here is evidence of people saying they are not U.S. citizens on voter registration records in Harris County, and yet they are becoming registered voters anyway,” said Logan Churchwell, spokesman for the Public Interest Legal Foundation, told the station.
The county says that the non-citizens may have filed the paperwork to register to vote, but insists that “all of these applications were caught, and there is no allegation that anyone who is not a citizen is currently registered to vote.”
Texas is currently a key battleground in a war over ballots, especially absentee ballots, as the state has restricted who can vote by mail in an effort to maintain control over the process.
However, Texas law also allows disabled people to request a ballot by mail – with a very loose definition of disabled, a loophole critics say some have exploited by using the pandemic as an excuse to request absentee ballots even when they may not legally qualify.
The issue has been in and out of court, and will likely continue to be the subject of legal filings in the run-up to the Nov. 3 election, which polls indicate could be unexpectedly close in the normally deep-red state.
