| After longtime liberal lion Lon Burnam's loss this past March, Democratic insiders within the Texas legislature mourned one of the more bitter loses they've seen since the 2010 Tea Party tidal wave election year.
Well, true to form as within the House chamber, citizen Burnam isn't going down without one last chance at the back microphone.
In a lawsuit filed today in Tarrant County against his democratic primary opponent who won the election by 110 votes, Burnam claims that there are reports of an illegal vote by mail operation of some kind, that allegedly might have been orchestrated by his opponent.
This lawsuit seeks to obtain any information from the County Clerk's office, and from those involved in any of the alleged practices, to get down to the bottom of what, if any, wrongdoing occurred.
In a press release from Burnam published by Quorum Report Burnam noted:
"I have received reports from voters in the district who say they were approached at their door by campaign workers of unclear affiliation who asked them to fill out a vote-by-mail application on an electronic tablet device such as an iPad.
Texas law clearly does not allow the practice of filling out vote-by-mail ballot applications electronically, which the Texas Secretary of State's has confirmed. Other questionable practices about this operation aside, this renders the entire operation illegal."
