Lone Star State Moves Towards Forensic Audit in Top Counties

The Lone Star state may soon be moving to initiate a forensic audit of the 2020 election in its most populated counties.

Texas state Representative Steve Toth, a Republican, has filed a bill requesting a forensic audit into the top 13 most populated counties in the Lone Star state.

The bill, HB 241, was filed in the Texas House of Representatives.

Key Takeaways from the Bill

In the bill, Rep. Toth calls on the governor, the lieutenant governor, and the speaker of the House of Representatives to “appoint an independent third party to conduct a forensic audit of the general election that took place on November 3, 2020.”

That third party conducting the audit will be responsible for auditing “every precinct in each county with a population of 415,000 or more.”

Toth is asking for the audit to begin no later than November 1, 2021, and is requiring the state to complete the process by no later than February 1, 2022. He also notes that the auditors must submit a report to “the governor, lieutenant governor, speaker of the house of representatives, and each member of the legislature” which details “any
anomalies or discrepancies in voter data, ballot data, or
tabulation.”

The legislation will take effect immediately if it receives a two-thirds majority vote in both the state House and Senate. Toth also included a provision which states: “If this Act does not receive the vote necessary for immediate effect, this Act takes effect on the 91st day after the last day of the legislative session.”

The counties that meet the requirements to be audited under this bill are:

  • Harris
  • Dallas
  • Bexar
  • Tarrant
  • Travis
  • Collin
  • Denton
  • Hidalgo
  • Fort Bend
  • El Paso
  • Montgomery
  • Williamson
  • Cameron

According to analyst Seth Keshel, these 13 counties represent over 500,000 imaginary Biden votes.
