THE FOLLOWING IS A PRESS RELEASE FROM RUBEN PEÑA - THE BV DOES NOT VOUCH FOR THE TRUTHFULNESS OF ANY FACTUAL ALLEGATIONS. THESE ARE MATTERS FOR THE COURT. THE BV IS SIMPLY REPORTING THE FACTS AS ALLEGED BY PEÑA

"Join us! Demand fair and honest elections from the Cameron County Democratic Party.

Join us at a historic trial beginning on Wednesday, as testimony is presented before a visiting judge on the abuse of our mail-in ballot system, and the theft of our votes.

When: Wednesday, June 2, 2010
Time: 10:00 am
Where: 138th Judicial District Court, 3rd Floor, Cameron County Courthouse


Statistics from the Precinct 2 suit :

FACT: On Election day, Ruben Pena received a total of 1,863 votes, or 52.2% margin of victory to Ernie Hernandez' 1,701 votes. On Election night, Hernandez was behind 47.7%.

FACT: Hernandez received 87.5% of the mail-in ballots, 240 votes, to Pena's 34 votes for a paltry 12.4%.

FACT: Hernandez received more mail-in votes than one of the candidates for County Judge!

FACT: 101 more mail-in votes were received in the run-off than during the main primary election, when there were 6 candidates running.

FACT: On Election day, precinct 38's box (Sharp Elementary) was delayed in reporting to the elections administrator for approximately 2 ½ hours after the polls closed. The box when returned was not sealed and the election judge admitted to poll watchers and others that he had deviated from his return to the courthouse because he needed to go to the bathroom. He admitted to driving to the H.E.B. store located on Boca Chica Boulevard rather than going to the courthouse, a scant 5 blocks away. While attending to his bodily functions, the election judge left the unsecured ballot box unattended in his car for approximately an hour or more.

Many of you have expressed shock and outrage at the flagrant abuses and election manipulation taking place here in Cameron County... It's time to bring this immoral and illegal activity to an end.


If you know family, friend or neighbor who has been approached by "election workers" attempting to influence their mail-in vote or pick up their mail-in ballots, please call the Secretary of State's office at: 1-800-252-VOTE
(1-800-252-8683)

I invite you to join us. Tomorrow, Wednesday, at 10:00 am, at the Cameron County Courthouse, 3rd Floor.
"

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is a two way street, if you are a Hernandez supporter you are free to attend and support his win. I warn eveyone the court will tolerate no outbursts or protesting. You will be helping no one if you attempt an outburst or protest. If you attend you sit quietly and respect the court.

While I did not like the comment I posted it threw because it did not violate any standards I may have.

People better be prepared to be surprised by how I cover this - I will take no prisoners if I see Peña's lawyers cross the line with these seniors - I will have zero tolerance for embarassing these seniors or getting into their private thoughts.


I have no idea what I am going to say - but I know I will not be happy if the seniors are abused on the stand by either side

The seniors were abused when their voting rights were violated/ bought etc. Bobby.

all the more reasons to not violaet them in court - I will be curious to know if the judge will agree the home is a polling place. The problem becomes that voter looses their vote because someone violated the rule - will not be upheld on appeal - you cannot punish the senior because they cannot remember what happened or because someone campaigned where they were not allowed to campaign - justice will error on the side of keeping the vote.

I will do my best to cover the trial - this way we get to the facts
