According to recent allegations, Taral Patel, a Democratic candidate for the position of precinct commissioner in Fort Bend, Texas, and an appointment of the administration of President Joe Biden, is suspected of creating phony online accounts to post racist statements about himself and then openly accusing Republicans of being responsible for these messages.

According to the records of the court, Patel was taken into custody over the last week for the offense of online impersonation, which is a third-degree felony, as well as the misdemeanor of misrepresenting his identity, as Just The News reported.

In addition to surrendering his passport, he paid a total of $22,500 in bonds, one set for each of the charges that were brought against him.

Where it Started

In September 2023, Patel published a post on Facebook in which he included a photo of the racist comments that he had reportedly made against himself. The post was about the insults that he had supposedly made up against himself.

"[W]hen my Republican opponents supporters' decide to hurl #racist, #anti-immigrant, #Hinduphobic, or otherwise disgusting insults at my family, faith community, colleagues, and me - that crosses a line," he wrote. He also accused former President Donald Trump and "today's extremist Republican party" of inciting such rhetoric.

The Comments

According to the Houston Chronicle, the investigation of the remarks was initiated by incumbent Republican commissioner Andy Meyers, Patel's opponent. This information is supported by documents from the Fort Bend County District Clerk's office.

Patel is accused of creating Facebook profiles using the images of others and subsequently posting racist and hateful messages and remarks associated with those profiles. Then, according to the documents that read a bit like a storybook, he would utilize the comments to solicit donations from all over the county.

The incumbent Meyers was allegedly endorsed by a significant number of the abusive comments. For example, a screenshot of a comment posted by Patel reads: "I am with Meyers ALL THE WAY because he serves Jesus, unlike Patel and his followers who worship Monkey and Elephant."

According to Patel's website, President Joe Biden appointed him to serve as a White House liaison and as a member of the Asian American Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander Committee.

Another 'Attack'

This "attack" is distinctly reminiscent of the feigned attack against Jussie Smollett from several years ago.

The actor attempted to convince the world that two men attacked him, poured chemicals on him, put a rope around his neck and told him he was in "MAGA" country.

Smollett, who had connections to a number of powerful people in politics, eventually came under scrutiny, and those accusations turned out to be false, and the actor was prosecuted for his false statements.
