DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - Former Dallas County Judge Elizabeth Frizell has informed KRLD's L.P. Phillips that she intends to file a voter fraud petition in her quest to earn the Democratic nomination for Dallas County District Attorney.

In text messages, Frizell told Phillips she had proof of voter fraud and would file the petition by the end of the week.

Frizell didn't specify what kind of voter fraud was committed but said details would be included in her petition. 


On Monday, Frizell said she had decided against a recount of the primary results in her loss to John Creuzot.

Frizell was been beaten in the March Primary election by Creuzot by fewer than 600 votes.

"In order to ensure that each vote is counted, I will be exploring other options to ensure the electoral process is fair and just for all voters," Frizell wrote on her campaign Facebook page Monday. "Countless people have reached out to my office concerning their inability to vote in the DA race due to ballot error and other violations. Moreover, evidence of mail- in voter fraud and other forms of malfeasance currently under investigation leads me to believe that misconduct impacted this outcome. While no one wishes to move on from this process more than me and my family, I have a responsibility to the voters to ensure the process that I campaigned for them to participate in, many for the first time ever, was fair and impartial."

Frizell told Phillips she didn't petition a recount because that would have prevented her from being able to allege voter fraud had occurred. 

When contacted Tuesday, Carmen Alaya, the Executive Director of the Dallas County Democratic Party, said they will have no comment until a petition is actually filed. 

Creuzot told KRLD News on Monday that he was ready to move forward, however, it appears the race is far from over.

The winner of the nomination will face Republican Faith Johnson in the November general election.
