Authorities are investigating fake voter guides promoting Democrat Robert (Beto) O’Rourke that were placed in Christian churches across Texas.
“They tried to deceive the people of God in the house of God,” Vision America president John Graves said on the Todd Starnes Radio Show. “They are trying to influence elections through deceit.”
Vision America is a Christian ministry that provides voter guides to churches and people of faith across the nation. In 2016, the sent out more than 5 million voter guides.
Graves said his organization received calls from a number of churches in Texas from pastors who noticed the Vision America voter guides had been altered.
“They kept our logo, our look, our colors, but they flipped the issues of the candidates,” Graves said. “The fake voter guides clearly favored O’Rourke. They made Ted Cruz look like he was pro-abortion.”
He said it’s flat-out voter fraud and he believes whoever is responsible violated civil and criminal statutes.
“I’ve been around this type of work for 20 years and I’ve never seen anyone go to this level of deceit and dishonesty to try to deceive Christians,” Graves said on the nationally-syndicated radio show.
He said the churches were targeted in what appears to be a coordinated attack – and in several cases the suspects were captured on video surveillance footage.
Video from one Dallas-area church shows a male and female walking into the church building on a Sunday and replacing the real voter guides with the fraudulent guides.
Graves said once they identify the culprits they will consider pressing charges.
“It’s an evil spirit behind it,” he said. “The people who did it – it exposes the spirit behind them.”
“What the enemy meant for evil – God can turn it into good,” Graves said.
And for the record, Ted Cruz is pro-life. Beto O’Rourke is not.
