In the weeks following one of the most-watched midterm elections of our history, we are learning that not all votes were cast legitimately. Democrats scoff when President Donald Trump warns us about voter fraud. They call him paranoid, claiming it never happens — especially in districts they win. But in the state of Texas, one woman was found committing a shocking amount of voter fraud. You won’t believe how long it’s been going on.
For years, Americans have been worried about voter fraud. The integrity of our democracy is in jeopardy if people who are not eligible to vote go to the polls. We often hear stories about how dead people are still on rolls. Or how some voters end up going to multiple polling locations in a single election.
President Trump has warned us about the dangers of voter fraud for years. Liberals in the media laughed him off, saying his claims were wild speculation.
But in this midterm season alone, we’ve heard more than a few cases of illegitimate voters. Undercover journalists Project Veritas blew the whistle on potential illegal voting in both Georgia and Texas.
Voter fraud can swing a close race, giving a dishonest candidate a clear advantage. In this day and age, we’ve seen an unusual amount of support from Democrats for illegal aliens. Liberals are bending over backward to welcome undocumented immigrants into the country, provide them sanctuary, and even grant them amnesty.
Have you ever wondered why? Its quite possible Democrats hope these newcomers will vote for them — legally or otherwise.
A recent case in Texas has revealed that many immigrants — who are no eligible to vote — have been casting ballots. One woman has been illegally voting for a long time. Now, she’s facing the music.
An appeals court upheld last year’s conviction of a Texas woman who officials said voted illegally multiple times, Attorney General Ken Paxton said Tuesday.
Rosa Maria Ortega, a green card holder, is a permanent resident who lives in the Dallas area. On voter registration forms, Ortega marked she was a U.S. citizen – allowing her to vote “illegally for more than 10 years,” Paxton’s office said.
The mother of four was sentenced to eight years in prison with parole eligibility in less than one year. She was also fined $5,000. The Texas 2nd Court of Appeals upheld the conviction Tuesday.
The attorney general’s office said it had offered Ortega a lesser punishment so she could avoid prison – just two years of community supervision – but she declined and chose a jury trial instead.
“This case underscores the importance that Texans place on the institution of voting and the hallowed principle that every citizen’s vote must count,” Paxton said in a statement. “We will hold those accountable who falsely claim eligibility and purposely subvert the election process in Texas.” [Source: Fox News]
Green card holders are here legally, that one thing is true. But they are not entitled to vote. Only citizens can legally vote in U.S. election.
The fact that this woman had voted numerous times over ten years should alarm you. This midterm season, Americans were stunned to see how close the Ted Cruz/Beto O’Rourke election was. The left-wing Democrat almost unseated a tried-and-true conservative, gaining millions of votes. Now, you know how that was possible.
Ortega’s lawyers claim that this was all just a big mistake and that she didn’t understand the voter registration form.
Ortega had said she was confused by the voter registration forms and made a mistake when she marked that she was a U.S. citizen on the paperwork…
Clark Birdsall, her attorney, told The Washington Post the only options on the form was “citizen” or “noncitizen.”
“She doesn’t know. She’s got this [green] card that says ‘resident’ on it, so she doesn’t mark that she’s not a citizen. She had no ulterior motive beyond what she thought, mistakenly, was her civic duty,” Birdsall said. [Source: Fox News]
I call bullcrap on that excuse. You know if you are a U.S. citizen or not. Naturalized citizens have to go through a very stringent set of steps to become Americans. It takes a lot of time and dedication. There are plenty of immigrants who don’t want to do it. Because of that, they’re not entitled to vote.
You mean to tell me Ortega’s lived in America all this time and didn’t realize she wasn’t a citizen? Or that she simply forgot the difference between “resident” and “citizen”? Give me a break.
But prosecutors didn’t buy the defense. They said she initially marked she was not a U.S. citizen on a voter registration form when she moved from Dallas County to Tarrant County in 2014 and was informed she would not be eligible to vote. When she applied again, she indicated she was a U.S. citizen, according to Paxton’s office. [Source: Fox News]
There’s the smoking gun, my friends. She knew she could only vote if she lied. That’s why she’s now facing 8 years in jail. How many more non-citizens and others are committing voter fraud? And will our government do anything about it?
