Another Lawsuit from an Election Loser Whining About the Results

Nearly five months after a court affirmed Harris County’s November 2022 election results, another Republican judicial candidate who did not win has presented a similar argument to secure a different verdict in the same Houston courtroom.

This recent legal challenge revolves around a narrow vote margin and whether a new election should be called. Tami Pierce is among the 20 Republican candidates who disputed the outcomes of the 2022 midterm elections, citing disruptions caused by a ballot paper shortage on Election Day that affected approximately 20 of 782 polling places.

Despite Judge David Peeples, who has overseen these lawsuits, previously affirming election results in similar cases, Pierce’s claim involving her defeat by incumbent Democrat Judge DaSean Jones by a mere 449 votes out of over a million could present a unique situation.

Peeples has acknowledged errors and violations in the electoral process but noted that these were insufficient to warrant a new election in previous cases.

Pierce’s case, marked by the smallest vote gap among those contested, was delayed for trial after a motion by Jones aimed at deterring baseless legal actions. As the last of these lawsuits to be heard, its arguments echo previous ones, focusing on whether the alleged missing votes could have influenced the election’s outcome.

The mathematics of the situation suggests that Pierce would need a significant portion of these disputed votes to overturn the result, a challenging feat considering the lack of evidence showing that the ballot issues prevented people from voting elsewhere in Harris County.

Interestingly, this case has captured attention due to its narrow margin, but it’s not the closest race to the 2022 elections. A separate contest saw a Democrat lose by an even smaller margin yet did not result in a lawsuit, highlighting a difference in responses to electoral defeat.

As the trial progresses, Pierce has shifted strategies, now seeking to disqualify votes, a departure from the original lawsuits’ aims. This move, while different, continues to stir controversy as the court deliberates on the legitimacy of her claims and the potential for a new election based on the slim vote margin and cited electoral mishaps.
