But remember, voter fraud isn’t real
An evaluation conducted by the office of the Texas Secretary of State found some 95,000 non-U.S. citizens on the voter registration roles. Of those 95K, they believe more than half voted in one or more elections over the last two decades.
From Austin local news:
An evaluation by the Texas Secretary of State’s office discovered that about 95,000 people identified by the Texas Department of Public Safety as non-U.S. citizens have a matching voting registration record. The state claims 58,000 of those people voted in one or more state elections over 22 years.
For perspective, during the 2018 Gubernatorial election, more than 15.7 million people were registered to vote, and more than 8.3 million actually voted.
In an advisory released Friday, the Texas Secretary of State, David Whitley, announced the findings from its voter registration maintenance activities.
The maintenance activity was done in accordance with federal and state law to ensure that only qualified voters — who must first and foremost be U.S. citizens — are registered to vote in Texas elections, per the Secretary of State.
The Texas Secretary of State cannot investigate or prosecute illegal activity so he turned the information over to the Texas Attorney General’s Office. Voting without eligibility is a second-degree felony in Texas.
“My Election Fraud Unit stands ready to investigate and prosecute crimes against the democratic process when needed,” wrote Attorney General Ken Paxton in a statement.
The usual suspects are skeptical (local news ctd):
CIvil [sic] rights groups and Mexican-American lawmakers were instantly suspicious of the numbers released.
“We need to see the evidence first because, typically, when elections go bad for the party in power, politicans [sic] will blame their electoral shortcomings on ‘voter fraud’,” Dallas State Representative and Chair of the Mexican American Legislative Caucus, Rafael Anchia, said after the news.
But remember, voter fraud isn’t real and voter ID is repressive, or so we’re told.DONATE
