On Thursday, former President Donald Trump sent a letter asking Texas Gov. Greg Abbott to add an election audit of the 2020 ballots as an agenda item
“Despite my big win in Texas, I hear Texans want an election audit!” Trump wrote in the letter to Abbott. “Texas needs you to act now. Your Third Special Session is the perfect, and maybe last, opportunity to pass this audit bill. Time is running out.”
The Texas Secretary of State’s office announced on Sept. 23, 2021, its full forensic audit of 2020’s general election in four Texas counties – Dallas, Harris, Tarrant and Collin.
“Under existing Texas laws, 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,” according to Texas Secretary of State’s office. “We anticipate the Legislature will provide funds for this purpose.”
