Bexar County GOP chair refuses to certify runoff election totals after losing in landslide
SAN ANTONIO – After a bruising defeat in the runoff election for Bexar County GOP chair, Cynthia Brehm announced on Thursday she will not certify the results. “Therefore, I cannot in good conscious (sic) certify the results of this election.”Republican voters in Bexar County largely rejected Brehm in favor of her opponent, John Austin. Austin received nearly two-thirds of the votes, election data showed. Before the runoff election, Brehm stoked controversy when she shared a Facebook post suggesting George Floyd’s death was staged for political reasons. The Bexar County Elections Department did not respond to requests seeking comment on Brehm’s allegations on Thursday.
