In a press release on Tuesday Gov. Dan Patrick stated that he supports “President Trump’s 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.”
The One Million Dollar Voter Fraud Bounty
This is the first reward for voter fraud evidence by Republicans who believe there was foul play in the election. However, the media and Democrats have been quick to dismiss any allegations of voter tampering during the election process, despite the president's call for an investigation.

Patrick Sherry Sylvester stated the cash offer was about election fraud "regardless of the outcome of the election" and rebuilding voting confidence.
