Texas Cynthia Gonzalez 2016-05 Democratic Primary Runoff Absentee/Mail The Texas Attorney General's office is investigating potential voter fraud in Nueces County during the May 2016 primary runoff election. One voter, Juan Castellanos, told elections officials that ballot havester Cynthia Gonzalez had filled out his ballot in the Constable Precinct 5 race for incumbent Frank Flores III instead of for his preferred candidate Gilbert Gomez. Patricia Franklin, who has been working Nueces County elections for about 15 years, said a relative of Flores "brought in people every day that she didn't seem to know." In 2006, a 65-year-old Robstown woman pleaded guilty to two counts of felony voter fraud in Robstown for voting for residents. http://archive.caller.com/news/politics/elections/local/nueces-county-clerk-anno...
