A Republican State Representative announced on Monday that he filed a bill in the Texas State House last week calling for a forensic audit of the 2020 election results in 13 of the state’s largest counties.
State Rep. Steve Toth (R-Woodlands) introduced HB. 241, the Texas Voter Confidence Act, which calls for the appointment of an independent auditor to investigate election results in any Texas county with a population greater than 415,000, as The Texan reported:
“Prior to the special session, I met with constituents across District 15 in South Montgomery County. The Texas Voter Confidence Act is a product of those meetings and a direct request from the voters who sent me to Austin,” Toth said. “Texans want to know more about the claims of voter fraud and deserve to have confidence in their elections.”
The two-page bill would require an “independent third party” appointed by the governor,
