Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, a Republican, is the first and only lieutenant governor of any state to offer money to help uncover voter fraud in any election, including the 2020 Presidential Election.
He offered this week to give up to $1 million from his campaign funds to reward any whistleblower or tipster who helps expose verified voter fraud. Anyone who comes forward with evidence will receive a minimum $25,000 payment.
“President Trump’s pursuit of voter fraud not only essential to determine the outcome of this election, it is essential to maintain our democracy and restore faith in future elections,” he said in a statement.
“I support President Trump’s 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,” he said.
“In Texas we know voter fraud is real,” he added. “In just the last 60 days, we have had three major arrests on voter fraud including a social worker who was arrested last week for allegedly registering almost 70 developmentally disabled adults to vote without their signature or consent.”
On the same day, James O’Keefe, president of Project Veritas, who exposed an alleged ballot harvesting operation in Bexar County, stood in front of the Alamo and challenged Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton to arrest a woman he says committed voter fraud in the 2020 Election and previous elections. Texans who have seen the video and audio records he posted argue this would be one example that fits Patrick’s criteria. O’Keefe says, “Make an arrest Ken Paxton.”

He also posted video online of what appears to be an agent from the Officer of the USPS Inspector General, Russell Strasser, coercing a Pennsylvania whistleblower and combat veteran Richard Hopkins who came forward about voter fraud in Pennsylvania and later allegedly recanted his sworn affidavit.

O’Keefe said “Richard Hopkins, a Combat Veteran and a marine with a daughter never asked to go public or for any of this. In the full interview released tomorrow, he said this harder than what he endured in Afghanistan. The post office has placed him on non-pay status.”
Hopkins recorded the conversation between himself and Strasser, in which Strasser appears to tell Hopkins, “I am trying to twist you a little bit” “I am scaring you here”…” we have Senators involved…DOJ involved…reason they called me is to try to harness,” according to the recording.
Despite CNN, PolitiFact, the New York Times and other news outlets arguing, “there is no evidence that thousands of dead people voted in the 2020 US elections in Wayne County, Michigan,” or “that a substantial number of votes were fraudulently cast by dead people in Pennsylvania,” lawsuits have been filed in Arizona, Nevada, Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Georgia. Newsmax, the Epoch Times and local news outlets in each state are reporting on these lawsuits.
An analysis by a statistician published by the Epoch Times found that at least 10,000 dead people voted in Michigan.
Both Newsmax and Ronna McDaniel of the Republican Party announced that in Michigan alone there were 2,800 incident reports and 130 affidavits of voter fraud.
Counselor to the president, former New York City Mayor, Rudy Giuliani announced that whistleblowers who worked on Dominion software, the system used in roughly 30 states, are coming forward and sworn affidavits are being prepared regarding voting irregularities and alleged fraud.
On Sunday, he said the Trump campaign has more than 60 witnesses ready to testify about voter fraud and irregularities in Pennsylvania. His team plans to file roughly ten lawsuits this week regarding the ballot count in Pennsylvania, stating “The Pennsylvania election was a disaster.”
“In Philadelphia, where we are furthest ahead, we have about 60 or 70 witnesses in Pennsylvania, Philadelphia and in Pittsburgh. In Pittsburgh, we have observers who for 24 hours were kept out of the room or kept away from the room where they were counting the mail-in ballots, which of course are the highly suspicious ballots,” he said.
“During that period of time, at least 135,000 ballots were counted, none of which were observed by any Republican observer as the law requires,” he said.
Private citizens and groups other than the Trump Campaign or state Republican Parties have filed lawsuits alleging voter fraud, including the Public Interest Legal Foundation, which filed lawsuits in Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
A settlement was reached in one lawsuit in Nevada to ensure election law is followed, including ballot-counting observation.
The Trump campaign announced two new federal lawsuits this week in Pennsylvania and Michigan.
