County officials in Texas say they are in the dark following 'audit' announcement
A day after a press release obliquely announced that a "full forensic audit" was already underway in a handful of Texas counties, officials in many of those counties told CNN they're still in the dark about the audit plans.
Hours after former President Donald Trump fired off a letter to GOP Texas Gov. Greg Abbott demanding an audit of the 2020 presidential election results, the Texas secretary of state's office appeared to comply. A Thursday evening press release from the office stated that "the Secretary of State has the authority to conduct a full and comprehensive forensic audit of any election and has already begun the process in Texas' two largest Democrat counties and two largest Republican counties -- Dallas, Harris, Tarrant and Collin for the 2020 election."
Beyond that, statewide Texas officials offered little clarity. Abbott's office referred questions about the audit to the secretary of state's office. The secretary of state job is currently vacant in Texas and other officials in that office did not respond to requests for comment.
Officials in Dallas, Harris and Tarrant counties said they had not yet received any requests from the secretary of state's office for information or materials that would be relevant for a post-election audit. Collin County officials didn't immediately respond to CNN's inquiry.
One Texas official told CNN that even officials inside the secretary of state's office were unaware of any audit underway.
Even the county officials don't know what is happening? And Texas voted for Il Dufus, btw! But don't worry, there will soon be more announcements of ominous 'findings' for qdane to rant about. Because the scam must go on, and the complete failure of the previous scam must be forgotten....
