Texas lawmaker says election audit must be ‘done right,’ addresses timeline


Texas is moving forward with an audit of the 2020 election results in four counties, including Dallas, Texas state Rep. Steve Toth confirmed.

Toth, who was one of the primary sponsors of the bill to audit Texas, told OAN’s Natalie Harp during “The Real Story” on Tuesday that this is not simply a probe that’s just for show, rather it is to root out any fraud from affecting Texas elections.

“We want to make sure that this is done right in the state of Texas, and that we’re not just dotting i’s and crossing t’s to be able to say ‘Hey, we did an audit.’ No, we want to get to the bottom of what really did or didn’t happen,” said Toth.

Seth Keshel, former Army Captain and self-proclaimed ‘Intel Patriot’, will be involved in the audit process. Keshel broke multiple ground-breaking election fraud reports that he presented last month during Mike Lindell’s Cyber Symposium.

The Texas audit is happening at the request of President Donald Trump who sent a letter to Gov. Greg Abbott last week requesting that he answer Texans’ calls to ensure free and fair elections. The Texas Secretary of State’s office swiftly confirmed that it would begin investigating the election results of four counties, including Dallas, Harris, Tarrant, and Collins.

Toth added that as soon as a statement of works, describing what the audit will need and entail, is provided to the legislature, the appropriations committee that he is a member of “will make sure that we fund it just as the governor requested.”

Addressing how long the audit will be expected to take, Toth clarified that he will have a better idea in the coming days once a statement of works is received.

“Until we see the statement of works that we know exactly what’s going to be involved, then we put a price tag, then we’ll know for certain what we can and can’t do,” the lawmaker continued.
