Texas: 9 Arrested In Organized, Illegal Voting Scheme
Yes, there is voter fraud going on despite what Democrats tell you. The interesting thing is that it is Democrats engaging in it! In a report you probably aren’t hearing about in the mainstream news, nine people were arrested in Edinburg, Texas for participating in an organized, illegal voting scheme. Interestingly enough, they all have Hispanic last names.
Guadalupe Sanchez Garza, Araceli Gutierrez, Brenda Rodriguez, Rosendo Rodriguez, Cynthia Tamez, Ruby Tamez, Belinda Rodriguez, Felisha Yolanda Rodriguez and Jerry Gonzalez, Jr. have all been arrested and charged with voter fraud, and these are only the beginning according to ABC7 Amarillo.
The arrests follow an ongoing investigation where political workers recruited people who agreed to fraudulently claim residential addresses so they could vote in specific city of Edinburg municipal races.
According to jail records, a $1,000 bond has been set for Felisha Yolanda Rodriguez. A $10,000 bond has been set for Araceli Gutierrez, Brenda Rodriguez, Rosendo Rodriguez, Belinda Rodriguez and Jerry Gonzalez, Jr. The other suspects arrested have not had their bonds set as of Thursday afternoon.
More arrests are expected in connection to this investigation.
“Illegal voting, particularly an organized illegal voting scheme orchestrated by political operatives, is an affront to democracy and results in corruption at the highest level,” says Attorney General Paxton. “Each illegal vote silences the voice of a law-abiding registered voter. My office will continue to do everything in its power to uncover illegal voting schemes and bring to justice those who try to manipulate the outcome of elections in Texas.”
The outlet also reported:
An additional three individuals have been arrested for voter fraud.
The Hidalgo County District Attorney’s Office confirmed that eight people are currently in custody of the Hidalgo County District Attorney’s office.
On Thursday morning, the Texas Attorney General’s office arrested five people in connection to the 2017 Edinburg city election.
Details are limited but District Attorney Ricardo Rodriguez says that one more arrest is possible.
Anyone want to guess who these people were casting votes for down there in the Texas Senate race among other election races going on this year?
