Texas Mayoral Candidate Arrested on 84 Counts Of Mail-In Voter Fraud

The Daily Caller reports Zul Mohamed, a Carrollton, Texas mayoral candidate was arrested and charged with more than 100 felonies related to voter fraud after he allegedly sent 84 mail-in ballot applications, authorities said.

In a news release, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced that his Election Fraud Unit assisted the Denton County Sheriff’s Office in arresting Mohamed on 84 counts of mail-in ballot application fraud and 25 counts of unlawful possession of an official mail-in ballot.  At the time of his arrest, Mohamed was in the process of stuffing envelopes with mail-in ballot applications for neighboring Dallas County. Mohamed could face up to 20 years for the charges.

“Mail ballots are inherently insecure and vulnerable to fraud, and I am committed to safeguarding the integrity of our elections,” Paxton said. “My office is prepared to assist any Texas county in combating this form of fraud.”

The investigation began September 23 when the sheriff’s office was notified by the Denton County Elections Office of possible fraudulent activity related to absentee ballot applications. Officials say absentee ballots had been requested to be sent to a PO Box that belonged to a nursing home facility, according to CBS DFW.

When investigators made contact with the residents whose ballots had been requested they learned that none of the residents had asked for ballots to be mailed to the P.O. Box.

The P.O. Box was obtained using a fake Texas driver’s license and fake University of North Texas student identification.

Investigators watched the postal facility and placed an undercover officer there. A box of ballots was picked up Oct. 7 by a person who police later identified as Mohamed. Police followed him back to his home and executed a search warrant where they found a box containing the requested ballots, including several that were open.

“Voter fraud is a serious and widespread issue and cannot be tolerated,” Denton County Sheriff Tracey Murphree said in a statement, according to Fox News. “The fact an actual candidate for public office would engage in these activities is appalling. We will continue to aggressively investigate allegations of voter fraud.”

    • If he was a Republican, the MSM would have already run with the story.

  1. Why not just sent him back to whichever third world sand pit he came from and call it a day?

  2. Thanks for your submission. Another factor is that to be a photographer involves not only problem in catching award-winning photographs but additionally hardships in getting the best digital camera suited to your needs and most especially issues in maintaining the standard of your camera. This is very true and clear for those professional photographers that are into capturing a nature’s captivating scenes — the mountains, the particular forests, the particular wild or perhaps the seas. Visiting these daring places definitely requires a camera that can meet the wild’s nasty surroundings.
