Obama Activist Tied in With Organization Accused of Voter Fraud

Patterico’s Pontifications

You may have read that there is strong evidence of voter fraud in Houston. Here’s what you may not have heard: the organization accused of shady behavior is linked to a former head of an Obama campaign office. She is a fan of Che Guevara. She is also the person who invited to a town hall meeting, a woman who then posed as a doctor at that meeting during the health care debate.

Here are the details.

Last month, Houston’s Registrar accused a Democratic organization called “Houston Votes” of voter registration fraud. The allegations were recently detailed here, and make compelling reading:

When Catherine Engelbrecht and her friends sat down and started talking politics several years ago, they soon agreed that talking wasn’t enough. They wanted to do more. So when the 2008 election came around, “about 50” of her friends volunteered to work at Houston’s polling places.

“What we saw shocked us,” she said. “There was no one checking IDs, judges would vote for people that asked for help. It was fraud, and we watched like deer in the headlights.”

Their shared experience, she says, created “True the Vote,” a citizen-based grassroots organization that began collecting publicly available voting data to prove that what they saw in their day at the polls was, indeed, happening — and that it was happening everywhere…

Most of the findings focused on a group called Houston Votes, a voter registration group headed by Sean Caddle, who also worked for the Service Employees International Union before coming to Houston. Among the findings were that only 1,793 of the 25,000 registrations the group submitted appeared to be valid.

The other registrations included one of a woman who registered six times in the same day; registrations of non-citizens; so many applications from one Houston Voters collector in one day that it was deemed to be beyond human capability; and 1,597 registrations that named the same person multiple times, often with different signatures. . . .

“The integrity of the voting rolls in Harris County, Texas, appears to be under an organized and systematic attack by the group operating under the name Houston Votes,” the Harris voter registrar, Leo Vasquez, charged as he passed on the documentation to the district attorney.

Guess who was active in recruiting for Houston Votes? That would be one Maria Isabel

…Her name resurfaced when we reported here that Isabel had invited Roxana Mayer to a Sheila Jackson Lee town hall meeting. Mayer, of course, is the woman who pretended to be a doctor to lend credibility to her support for Obama’s health care reform.

…David Jennings, who took two of the photos used above, has a post that further ties Isabel to the Houston Votes organization — using photos that Isabel herself put on Flickr. It’s excellent work — go see it now.

Update: Perhaps you remember Rep. Jackson Lee’s Town Hall meeting last summer:

PoliticsNewsPolitics | August 12, 2009

At a Houston town hall, Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee disrespects a cancer survivor as she asks a question, by answering her cell phone.

That survivor, Tracy Miller, talks to Greta Van Susteren about her experience. She confirmed Jackson-Lee picked up her phone while the question was asked, and did not apologize. Miller also claimed that the Congresswoman pulled the same routine as two other constituents asked questions! In addition, according to Miller, when Jackson-Lee heard someone call her rude, she snapped back, “I am not rude.”
