From Councilman Swancy's Facebook Wall on May 9th, three days before anyone was to have access to the Electronic Voting Machine Memory Cards:

Craig Swancy
Saturday is the day to vote on Municipal Elections. I would urge each and everyone of you to vote. It appears that the candidates have taken a large lead as the Lake Lot Owners have voted for the candidates rather than the incumbants. Our City government is about to take a step backwards by 20 years. You can change this if you vote.

I don't see his comments as anything to be concerned over. What I read is that he believed the challengers had a large early lead because of what he heard from the Lake Lot Owners and he wanted to rally his supporters to vote.

Are you are accusing the councilman of tampering with the vote? If you are, you will be on very shaky ground. I hope you have an attorney on retainer.

Oh my gosh, you did accuse the councilman of voter fraud!

From your Facebook wall tonight:
Tawni Maughan "He acknowledges the Voter Fraud in the last Municipal Election."
about 1 hour ago

Did your attorney advise you to do that?

I think this should be reposted on Topix for when Tawni realizes how much trouble she has put herself in and erases it from her FB wall.

Tawni Maughan "You all may be thinking that I am doing all of this as a disgruntled candidate. You are very WRONG in that assessment. I knew there was something going on when Eric Matthews had won his first bid and his campaign had brought out more voters than any other Municipal Election had seen here in Weatherford. He is a fine man and was a great Councilman. He was also elected by "stacking the vote". He then ran again, after great service to our community, and lost to someone nobody had even heard of? And, lost soundly. I drove from OK just to vote for Eric on election day and I met Mr Robinson and he seems like a very nice man, but I drove 7 hours round trip in one day to come vote for Eric because he is such an honest, well educated, experienced businessman. He lost? How did that happen? There was only two people running in his race....it is very easy to flip that vote"

Tawni Maughan "I am NOT pursuing the office! I do not want a re-do! I want Paper Ballots and I want those involved in STEALING YOUR VOTE to face the court system as the State will allow. It takes time and I have two more years here so I have time. You will see me with a Petition on your doorstep asking for your signature. Without a paper trail it is impossible to trace without a Court Order for the Memory Card dumps and the software. I used to be a software developer. I wrote lines of code. With a little laptop I could do this within seconds to the counting machine."

You are clueless, why would he say "lake residents", specifically
had voted for the "challengers" in early voting with out knowlege?
Why to hin are a "lake residents" are so important, he lives near the college on Tory Street.

Absolutely. Mrs. Maughan has clearly crossed the line between harassment and libel. I haven't known her very long at all, but to my knowledge this would top any crazy attention seeking babbling she has ever come out with. If Swancy has any backbone at all he has already contacted his lawyer. You can't shrug that kind of libelous personal defamation off as just more of "Tawni being Tawni".
Unfortunately, since Mrs. Maughan has no obvious source of income, Mr. Swancy will probably find it's going to be tough to collect any judgement he wins against her.
This post shows your lack of education abput our legal system. It moves slowly.
Case like are costly.
Tawnie may have the money to proscute, Craig does not have the resources to defend homslef ($250,000 min) and he can Not use the legal protection contract the city has to protect itself with the Texas Municaptial Leguae. That's for the cities protection.

Don't you have to go to court to get a judgement. And, then, how do you collect it?
Who pays the lawyer's. They don't work for free. and the Texas Municaptial League can NOT get involves, they protect the city.

That was my point. Sounds like he could easily win a a lawsuit against her, but doubtful he would ever see any money as I don't think she has any assets.

The TML and city attorney CAN and probably will get involved because she has implicated the city as well.

Just to show how uneducated you are, these would not be "hate" crimes.

You really need to get your facts straight before you go spewing crap like this.

It really shows just how little you know.

Here is the quote from Mr. Swancy's facebook page:

It appears that the candidates have taken a large lead as the Lake Lot Owners have voted for the candidates rather than the incumbants. Our City government is about to take a step backwards by 20 years. You can change this if you vote.

From what he wrote it sounds to me like he has information available to him regarding the vote totals at the time he wrote it. This is information that he should not have had. Tell me why would all those who live at the Lake not want the incumbents remain in office. Has anyone explored that question?

It does appear that he has access to information before election day that was not publicly available until May 12, 2012. Can he explain that?

Just some thoughts from an Austin observer.

Please stop....LOL.

I will get back up from the floor just so I can type. You guys just keep making me look smarter and smarter....and I am a goof.

Now, I was going to explain to you what Hate Crimes are but I will let you Google.

Any law (please google the term "law" so you know what they are) well....just google it. Or go to your copies of Political Science text in your vast library. I love books, dont you?

You know, no matter your age, it is great to learn. Learn FOREVER, I say!!! Yay!

Again I ask how does he come to the statement "it appears"? Did he call all the voters? Was he at the polling place everyday during early voting talking to the voters? Or as I suspect, did he have access to inside information?

The access to inside information is the route I will be investigating. With this I will sign off.

Just some thoughts from an Austin observer in Weatherford to do my research.

I wouldn't be surprised to find the City involved. Mrs. Maughan seems to be implicating city employees as participatants by failing to safeguard the memory cards and supposedly allowing anyone to "take a handful". Notice she says her stooge "COULD have taken a handful". Who's to say her stooge didn't take a handful?
One other interesting point. Mrs. Maughan has also implicated herself in this supposed felony.
Tawni Maughan said on her facebook page that "the morning of the election, at 7am, I had my "illegal" Vote Count Watcher signed in (another blatant violation of Election Law I will tell you in a minute). He is trained by the Elections Deputy. He is taken around the office and left to just look around."
So what might "her" illegal vote count watcher have done with memory cards? Who was this person?
Councilman Swancy, LOL....I would have given ANYTHING if had had brought me those dang tags!!! They would be as valuable in this as these petitions and letter that are now in the hands of someone special...ya know I know lots of "stooges" They wear funny hats doncha know? We know you are not racist or would impose your "Christianity" on anyone now dont we?

I love you and in the end you will learn some valuable lessons from all of this. Maybe even to love yourself and love your neighbors, even if they are not wearing the "christian" label and are not white. Hating others because we are different was just immoral when you were just a resident. As an elected official....I believe that is something else?

Come ON!
Get with the program here.
I have given you plenty of open doors, just walk through them and educate yourself. Craig, even I have more faith in you than that. I do not think you are stupid. I just think you are lazy.
Come on.....do a little yoga or take a nice walk, then study and I mean study. You have been on Council for how many years? YOU do not know how to participate in a meeting utilizing the rules mandated by your City Municipal Codes (please learn those NOW) they are referred to as Robert's Rules of Order. You may have heard of them in recent discussions? the City of Weatherford M Code states that YOU are to KNOW them and USE them in ALL meetings. And, you may not have known this, but since you are a Councilman, I expect you should have learned this, that ALL decisions made OUT OF ORDER are invalid. I went to Mr Blaisdell with information and now you guys thinks ya gonna just learn some different rules? Sorry, yaz didnt bother to learn Roberts Rules, how the heck will you learn those? It is NOT because you cant. I believe you are intelligent (I doubt you would ever give me that courtesy calling me mentally ill) I just know that you are lazy. And, this is something for you all on Council and all the Board members - if you do not learn Robert's Rules of Order (which is so unacceptable that you guys havent) then HOW ON EARTH WILL YOU PARTICIPATE IN COUNTY MEETINGS OR ANY MEETINGS HELD BY OTHER CITIES, GOVT AGENCIES, CHURCHES, AND ALL THE OTHER BUSINESSES AND ORGANIZATIONS WHO UTILIZE ROBERTS RULES OF ORDER?
YOu may put my YOGA down all you want but rest assured it would do you a great deal of good. I bet you have some real back problems with your lower spine? If you will go to youtube and search for "happy baby yoga pose" I promise it will help. There are some great videos on youtube for yoga for back pain also. Just thought this might help. I do care about you, no matter how ugly you are to me.
You think me standing up for others and putting things right with the City staff, Council and Board members following policies, procedures and laws within the City is an act of the mentally ill (which I find very offensive for those with mental illness, please stop insulting groups. FYI, if I were you, I would go through my FB and delete all the derogatory remarks towards groups and all the post you have done about killing things probably should be erased. YOU are an elected official and you do have an Oath to honor and a part of that was the Constitution of the United States. Please read it).
I have to finish dinner now for my guest....I will see you soon and then we can talk about what has been happening. You may have your atty present if you like. The city will not provide anyone involved an atty. BTW, the Elections office is a County office and the employees there will answer to SOS and AG office. Let us hope that nothing inappropriate did happen. But, it is within my rights to ask for the investigation, now wasnt it? And, we all want to abide by the laws of our great state and nation, as well as those set forth in our City Charter and Municipal Codes.

Wow this is great. Mr. Swancy did you leave the fire department because you fanned the flames there like you do here? Did they let you go from the department because you never saw a fire you did not want to stoke?

Just wondering.
