Mexican national stole woman's ID and used to to vote in three elections
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced Monday he will prosecute a Mexican woman charged with stealing an American citizen’s identity and then using it to cast ballots in three presidential election years.Of course, vote fraud exists as this case and others like it demonstrate. The Democrats just do not want to investigate vote fraud because they think they benefit from it.
Laura Janeth Garza was spotted after the American woman went to get a passport, only to have the State Department discover Ms. Garza had already gotten one in her identity. Federal officials alerted Texas, which conducted a probe and found Ms. Garza also illegally registered to vote and cast ballots in 2004, 2012 and 2016, Mr. Paxton said.
“This case demonstrates my office’s commitment to protecting the integrity of elections,” the attorney general said in a statement announcing the prosecution.
She is being charged with two counts of illegal voting, both stemming from the 2016 election, according to indictments from Montgomery County, north of Houston.
If convicted, she faces up to 20 years in prison.
The case is one of more extreme cases of possible voter fraud, and it comes at a time when the existence of the problem is hotly debated. President Trump has argued — with scant evidence — that the extent of fraudulent voting was perhaps 3 million votes in 2016.
Some analysts have calculated a level of fraudulent voting does exist, though much lower than Mr. Trump’s claims.
