Texas Lt. Gov Dan Patrick on Tuesday said he is offering a reward of up to $ 1 million for information leading to an arrest and conviction for voter fraud in the 2020 Elezioni presidenziali.

“I support Il presidente Trump efforts to identify voter fraud in the presidential election and his commitment to making sure that every legal vote is counted and every illegal vote is disqualified,” Patrick said in a comunicato stampa. “President Trump’s pursuit of voter fraud is not only essential to determine the outcome of this election, it is essential to maintain our democracy and restore faith future elections.”

The ethics of Patrick's $  1 million reward has been called into question.

The money put up by Texassecond-in-command appeared to be a first among Repubblicano officeholders who are backing Trump as he refuses to concede.

Ancora, there is no evidence of widespread fraud in the 2020 elezione. Elezione officials from both political parties have stated publicly that the election went relatively well and international observers confirmed there were no serious irregularities.

Jim Clancy, former chairman of the Texas Ethics Commission, challenged the ethics of paying out a cash reward, saying it would be improper if it’s being used to help prove Trump’s questionable claims of voter fraud.

You could argue that this is an in-kind contribution to the Donald Trump campaign. That’s his problem,” Clancy said.

But Sherry Sylvester, a spokeswoman for Patrick, pushed back on Clancy’s suggestion, saying the offer was about voter fraudregardless of the outcome of the electionand restoring public confidence in the electoral process.
