On Thursday night, Rachel Maddow hosted a 2020 election poll worker named Eric Frank who busted a Republican voter for voting twice, once for himself and once for his son. The voter was convicted of election fraud and as a result, Frank collected a payout of $25,000 from Republican Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick.
Last year, Patrick was one of the most vocal and visible purveyors of the baseless claim that the presidential election had been stolen from Donald Trump. Patrick even went so far as to reward any person who could prove an instance of voter fraud with a bounty of between $25,000 and $1 million.
