Significant IRREGULARITIES discovered in Byron Cook's election....

"You shall not steal, nor deal falsely, nor lie to one another."
Leviticus 19:11

As many as 1,743 votes from the March Republican primary are unaccounted for in a small Texas county that was home to a close — and closely watched — House race, prompting a request for a state investigation.
Documents show several votes were counted more than once in the Hill County primary tabulation, including one that was counted as many as four times, the secretary of state's office said in a letter to the attorney general's office.
Hill County was one of several in a competitive race between Rep. Byron Cook, R-Corsicana, and challenger Thomas McNutt. Cook, a top lieutenant to House Speaker Joe Straus, won by about 200 votes.
Macias called the election irregularities "substantial."
"If an explanation was easily providable, I think it would be provided and the secretary of state would not have to get involved," Macias said. "If corrected, it could potentially affect every single race in Hill County."
A campaign aide to Cook has not yet returned a call seeking comment.
Brandon Rottinghaus, a political science professor at the University of Houston, said 1,700 votes was an unusually large discrepancy.
