Houston icon Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale threw out the first pitch at the Astros game Tuesday. On Thursday morning he will deliver comments following the latest allegations of voter suppression and possible fraud uncovered in the November Harris County election.
Mattress Mack will be joined by attorneys for County Judge candidate Alexandra Mealer and several judicial candidates at 10 a.m. Thursday, July 6th, on the steps of the State Capitol building in Austin.
The speakers will unveil the latest allegations in the growing evidence that the November election was horribly mismanaged.
“I’m doing this for the future of Harris County, for my children, for your children,” McIngvale said.
“Now more than ever, I am convinced it was a botched election. We need everyone to stand up and fight.”
