Texas mayoral candidate charged with 109 counts of voter fraud

DM

Texas authorities announced Thursday they have arrested and charged a mayoral candidate in the Dallas area with election fraud, accusing him of running a scam to request absentee ballots in other voters’ names. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said the mayoral candidate forged at least 84 applications for mail-in ballots, and when he was arrested he was in the process of stuffing envelopes to request even more. Authorities caught onto the scheme when dozens of ballot requests were all tied back to the same post office box, which was supposedly tied to a nursing home. They arrested Zul Mirza Mohamed, a candidate for mayor in Carrollton, Texas, a city of about 140,000 people, north of Dallas.
