Well, it has happened again. The crime of voter fraud, which liberals insist doesn’t exist, has resulted in the arrest of nine people in Edinburg, Texas.
ABC News 7 reports:
Nine people arrested by Texas AG’s office for voter fraud
Nine people have now been arrested in connection to participating in an illegal voting scheme in Edinburg, Texas.
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.
The nine individuals, Guadalupe Sanchez Garza, Araceli Gutierrez, Brenda Rodriguez, Rosendo Rodriguez, Cynthia Tamez, Ruby Tamez, Belinda Rodriguez, Felisha Yolanda Rodriguez and Jerry Gonzalez, Jr., will be prosecuted by the Hidalgo County DA’s Office.
“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.”
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.
The report goes on to say that more arrests are expected. You know what would stop things like this from happening? Voter IDs.
