…and Democrats lie.
A Texas Democratic House candidate voted as recently as last year using her parents’ Dallas address while she was living and working in California.
Helane “Lulu” Sawsan Seikaly, who is challenging Republican incumbent Van Taylor in Texas’s Third Congressional District, worked in California until at least last year as an attorney for a Sacramento-based law firm and as a professor at the University of California Davis. Using an address linked to her parents, however, Seikaly voted in Texas in both 2016 and 2018, public records show.
A couple of weeks after filing to run for the House last December, Seikaly switched her registration from Dallas to Collin County, Texas.
Not that it matters, because she’s going to get her ass handed to her in November.
How do I know this? Because this is my district, and in the last presidential election Taylor had a greater margin of victory (64%) than Trump (62%). He has an A+ from the TSRA, and we loves us our guns here. (From memory, Seikaly declined to answer the TSRA’s questionnaire on guns and gun rights, which is a dead giveaway in Texas.) Taylor’s also a serious conservative — I’ve met him — and he has pretty much continued in the tradition of our long-time, beloved (and much-missed) paisan, Sam Johnson, who retired in 2016.
“Lulu” has no chance, none.
A corollary to all this is that if the polls are showing that Seikaly is only one point behind Taylor, the polls are hopelessly biased, just as they were in 2016. But we all knew that anyway.
