Statement of Sen. Brian Birdwell
“There are inaccurate news reports published today which contain
false information concerning my voting record. Let me be crystal
clear. I have never, ever voted twice in the same election, and that
charge is particularly offensive to a soldier who holds the voting
process as honored and sacred. Basically, this news story would
have people believe that on Election Day in 2004, I voted in Virginia,
then got on a plane and flew to Texas so I could cast a second vote
for George W. Bush. I did not.
The reports mention that my full name is Brian Douglas Birdwell and
my brother’s name, which appeared right after mine on the voter roll
in Tarrant County, is Douglas Todd Birdwell. Because of the
similarity of our names, I believe there was an incorrect coding of
which brother actually voted in person in Texas on November 2,
2004. My brother knows that he did vote in the general election in
2004 but the reports indicate that he did not.
The truth is that, despite the implication that today’s story presents
‘new’ information, this false claim concerning my voting record was
presented to the Texas Secretary of State nearly four months ago
when my candidacy was initially challenged, then certified. The
allegation was false then and it's false now.”
