The mainstream media—including Fox News—rushed to declare Biden the winner of the election despite many concerns and brewing lawsuits. Their hope was to put pressure on Trump and his supporters to just give up, without investigating signs of obvious fraud. They also were counting on the rest of the Republican Party to back down, as they often do, and just let Democrats take over the country.
But it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen.
We’ve seen a few RINOs already congratulate Joe Biden, men like Mitt Romney who have more in common with the left than they do the right. But other top Republicans have refused to let the evidence fraud go uninvestigated. A large contingent of House Republicans, along with Kevin McCarthy, demanded the attorney general investigate. And he’s doing just that.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, who crushed his Democratic rival his election, has donated $500,000 of his own campaign cash to help Trump’s legal battles. Other notable Democrats have stood up to defend Trump and demand answers. The left was definitely not expecting that.
And now, Texas Lt. Gov. is offering up even more money to root out reports of fraud.
Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is offering $1 million in rewards to people who can help uncover voter fraud in the presidential election.
Patrick on Tuesday said in a press release to the media that any person who comes forward with evidence that leads to an arrest and final conviction of voter fraud will be paid a minimum of $25,000. The money would come from Patrick’s campaign funds.
“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,” Patrick said. [Source: Houston Chronicle]
Patrick has been an increasingly prominent conservative leader in Texas over the last year. He has been the voice of reason during the COVID panic and lockdowns, urging the governor to ease off on the abusive restrictions we’ve seen elsewhere. Now, it appears Patrick is leading the fight from Texas to expose attempts to steal this election.
We’ve already heard about postal workers and poll workers reporting irregularities and outright fraud in Pennsylvania, Arizona, and other states. Their testimonies have already been gathered up by the Trump campaign and their team of lawyers. This reward will be a powerful motivator for even more brave souls to come forward and reveal what is going on in swing states.
Where will these folks’ loyalties lie? In a party that forced them to cheat (or tried to get them to cover up signs of cheating) or with a $1 million reward? Something tells me there will be more than a few folks in PA and other places that will be eager to get a piece of that pie.
Democrats might be using the media to end calls for investigations and recounts. Still, it looks like the fight is far from over.
In fact, it just might only be starting. I, for one, am ready to fight.
