Judges Slams TX Gov. For Taking His Orders From Trump On Texas Election Audits

A Texas County Judge blasted Texas Governor, Greg Abbott (R) for "taking his orders" from Trump, over the announcement that there would be Audits into the State's 2020 Presidential Election Results.

The Texas Secretary-of-State, announced the Audit into the Results from: Collin, Dallas, Harris, and Tarrant, Ccounties on Thursday.

"Despite my big win in Texas, I hear Texans want an election audit!" Trump wrote in a Letter to Abbott, on Thursday. "You know your fellow Texans have big questions about the November 2020 Election."

Following the announcement, some Texas County Judges expressed Frustration, saying they do Not know what the Audits entail, and that they learned about them through a Press Release from the Office of the Secretary-of-Sstate.

"This is a weak Governor openly and shamelessly taking his orders from a disgraced former President. Governor Abbott is wasting taxpayer funds to trample on Texans' freedom to vote, all in order to appease his puppeteer," Dallas County Judge, Clay Jenkins (D) said.

Harris County Judge, Lina Hidalgo (D), Criticized the Audit as "politically motivated," saying: "Every time we engage in a conversation about these false allegations, we're lending credence to the lie."

Tarrant County Judge, Glen Whitley (R), said: "it's time to move on," criticizing "conspiracy theorists who want to come up with all these ways" to doubt the Election Results.

Biden won Dallas County with 65% of the Vote, and Harris County with 56%. He flipped Tarrant County, winning 49.3% to Trump's 49.1%. Trump won Collin County with over 51% of the Vote.

But, Trump won Statewide by about Six points, despite Democratic hopes of Flipping the Lone Star State.

Republicans have Audited or Pushed for Audits in States Biden narrowly won, and States won by Trump, amid Unfounded Claims that the 2020 Presidential Election was Stolen. No Evidence has been presented to indicate Widespread Fraud.

Texas Attorney General, Ken Paxton (R), has previously stated support for an Audit. "There is no reason not to do an audit," Paxton tweeted this summer. "There is no reason not to know the truth of every election. And, certainly, because there are so many questions about this one—maybe even in Texas, we should do the audit."

Meanwhile, Results were released, from the Arizona months-long and widely-scrutinized, Election Audit in Maricopa County. The Review found that Biden won the County by an even Larger Margin than the Pre-Audit Numbers indicated. The Hand Count found Trump won 45,469 Fewer Votes than Biden, whereas earlier County Results showed he lost by 45,109, a relatively small discrepancy of 360 Votes.

Last week, Trump also asked Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) to Decertify the State's Results, claiming he found 43,000 Absentee Ballots that Violated the Chain-of-Custody Rules.

However, Raffensperger said Friday that Trump "lost the election fair and square."
