Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced voter fraud charges against four women in an “organized ring” this week, which exploited people near Fort Worth with forged mail-in ballots, many of which were for Democratic candidates, KTVT-TV reported.
Paxton’s office told reporters that the criminals “harvested” votes using mail-in ballots with forged signatures. Then the women would either “assist” or “use deception” to get voters to sign envelopes.
Political consultant Aaron Harris told the station “The harvesters sit around and fill these out by the hundreds, often by the thousands,” he added to the station. He also delivered evidence showing the scheme.
Harris explained that other people were also involved in the fraudulent Texas voter ring, but those cases may be more difficult to prosecute.
“Just because they may have been indicted on one or two, or 16 counts, doesn’t mean they don’t have 200 counts,” Harris said, adding, “But those are the only 16 that can be proven.”
The Tarrant County elections administrator said he is cooperating with authorities, and expects that any changes, regarding increased security, will be outlined by Paxton.
The same county’s Democratic Party Chairwoman Deborah Peoples said that she had met Leticia Sanchez, but wasn’t aware of the details of the case.
Peoples also questioned the timing of the indictments. However, many people think that prosecuting people who try to influence the election with illegal votes should be dealt with quickly and efficiently.
Other instances of illegal voter fraud have plagued similar democrat districts, including Los Angeles. For example, their ‘Motor Voter’ program has been caught registering tens of thousands of non-citizens.
Such instances of democrats trying to steal votes, many people agree, is the lowest, most despicable act, and these criminals should face serious punishment in order to protect the integrity of United States elections.
