Texas ex-sheriff sues election rival over voter fraud
01/14/2021 // Virgilio Marin // Views

Robert Chody, the former sheriff of Williamson County in Texas, has a filed lawsuit against Sheriff-elect Mike Gleason over alleged voter fraud and other irregularities which secured Gleason's victory in the November election.

In a lawsuit filed in December, Chody claims that election officers failed to count legal votes, counted illegal votes, and made mistakes and/or engaged in illegal conduct. "The true outcome cannot be ascertained" because there were "so many material mistakes, illegalities and/or fraud," the lawsuit read.

Chody and his attorney are now seeking to gain access to all election documents in the county and have the "true" election results declared.

Equipment error and ballot duplication found in election

The lawsuit contains multiple affidavits from election authorities alleging several instances of voter fraud. Cathy Jaster, a county precinct member, said in her affidavit that she saw duplicate ballots being processed. When asked to back her allegation, Jaster explained that she was told that these ballots had not actually been processed yet.

Marcia Strickler, who worked as support for voting equipment at polling locations, claimed in her affidavit that she witnessed "too many 'glitches' and 'unexpected' errors from the equipment." She said that the printing of ballots could be duplicated if the print button was pressed multiple times, creating a backlog and the possibility that a voter received the wrong ballot.

"I am contesting the election results at this time until further proof suggests otherwise," Chody stated. Chody, who was seeking re-election, lost to Gleason 43 to 56 percent in the general election.


The lawsuit also makes note of a sorting error found by officials the day before the election. The county's election machine vendor, Tenex Software Solutions, was misidentifying voters to their precinct. This mislabeled precinct information was used to produce precinct-by-precinct data and to gauge voter trends per community.

County elections administrator Chris Davis said that this error was a minor glitch and did not affect the election results. He also noted that every voter in the county received the correct ballot and voted in the correct races.

But during a court meeting for the election certification, Davis admitted that the precinct-by-precinct data might not be completely accurate due to the machine issue, which required poll workers to individually sort through the ballots to place them in their correct precinct. Any data inconsistencies, according to Davis, would be due to human error.

Ex-sheriff alleges conspiracy and election law violations

Chody also claims that Gleason and his wife, Alison, who works as the director of the Williamson County Enterprise Applications Division, were electioneering outside of a polling place and that the pair are associated with county District Attorney Shawn Dick who indicted Chody last year.

Back in September, Chody was charged with felony evidence tampering in the case of Javier Ambler, a black man who died while being arrested for a traffic violation in 2019. His death was caught on camera during a taping of the A&E reality show "Live PD." The arrest, however, was never aired on television and all footage from the scene was destroyed.

Chody was believed to have participated in the destruction of the footage. The then-sheriff, however, blamed partisan politics for his indictment. "Let me tell you why we’re here. We’re here because it’s a month before the election – my election," Chody said in late September. (Related: Audience in Pennsylvania hearing “audibly shocked” by vote fraud revelations.)

The lawsuit mentioned that the Gleasons used Dick's services when he was in private practice. This association, according to the lawsuit, is the reason why Chody was indicted a few weeks before the election.

Chody also claims that the Gleasons were campaigning near a polling place, which is considered illegal under state election laws if the individual is standing within 100 feet of a polling location.

As part of the contest, Chody and SoRelle are requesting permission to inspect and obtain copies of all documents related to the election. Chody is also seeking monetary relief of up to $100,000 and for the "true" election results to be declared.
