Texas Prosecutes Little Old Ladies for Voter Fraud

By Steven Rosenfeld, AlterNet, Sunday 31 March 2007
State's Attorney General has prosecuted Democrats who help seniors vote by mail while ignoring documented Republican ballot box stuffing.

Willie Ray was a 69-year-old African-American City Council member from Texarkana who wanted her granddaughter, Jamillah Johnson, to learn about civil rights and voting during the 2004 presidential election. The pair helped homebound seniors citizens get absentee ballots, and once they were filled out, put them in the mail.

Fort Worth's Gloria Meeks, 69, was a church-going, community activist who proudly ran a phone bank and helped homebound elderly people like Parthenia McDonald, 79, to vote by mail. McDonald, whose mailbox was two blocks away from her home (she recently died), called Meeks "an angel" for helping her, a friend of both women said.

And until he recently moved out of state, Walter Hinojosa, a retired school teacher and labor organizer from Austin, was another Democratic Party volunteer who helped elderly and disabled people vote by getting them absentee ballots and mailing them.

Today, Ray and Johnson have criminal records for breaking Texas election law and faced travel restrictions during a six-month probation. Gloria Meeks is in a nursing home after having a stroke, prompted in part, her friends say, by state police who investigated her - including spying on Meeks while she bathed - and then questioned her about helping McDonald and others to vote. Hinojosa, meanwhile, has left Texas.

Further research on the 69-year-old lady revealed that she had not closed her curtain when she was bathing. Several local college students found out about the open curtain and found they could conduct research on whether her age wrinkles got water wrinkles after sitting in the tub for an extended period of time. I wonder why she didn’t close her curtain in the bathroom?
