San Antonio, June 13 – Harris County Clerk Stan Stanart, known usually for his jovial demeanor and has background as a very successful electrical engineer before he became the elected Harris County Clerk, took a major swing at the ethics and integrity of Harris County democrats as well as democrats statewide on Wednesday, June 13, 2018, when Stanart spoke before the Platform Committee of the Republican Party of Texas 2018 Convention.
”Democrats’ number one priority in their platform is to have paper ballots in elections, so they can cheat,” Stanart told the stunned room of Republican activists and Platform Committee members. “Sheila Jackson Lee was screaming bloody murder when we went to electronic systems to safeguard the voting process in Harris County.”
Stanart advocated the inclusion of support for electronic voting systems in the Republican Party of Texas Platform.
Specifically, Stanart has asked for support for “cameras that would only look at the screen of the voting device and using OCR software to record the results of the vote shown on the screen for each voter, to give confidence to any election official in this state and to verify that cheating has not occurred. This process would give us a way to verify how people actually voted and ensure the integrity of elections.”
Stanart added, “democrats don’t want that. They want a so-called ‘paper trail’ because it’s so much easier to cheat with paper ballots.”
Stanart explained that there have been experimental tests of those voting systems. “College students in California were given 6 weeks to try to hack into these electronic and computer systems; they couldn’t do it.”
The Harris County Clerk has a degree in Electrical Engineering and was a practicing engineer for his entire career before he became an elected servant in Harris County. “I have run elections now in Harris County for 8 years, and I’ve seen it all. We need to ensure complete integrity for the 765 voting locations in Harris County.”
