Texas prosecutes another vote fraud case
Another Noncitizen Indicted for Voter Fraud in 2016, Says Texas AGCounty officials in several large metropolitan areas have resisted compliance with the National Voter Registration Act. There should be consequences for their failure to comply.
Late Tuesday, Paxton announced that Marites Canete Curry, a noncitizen Navarro County resident, was charged with one count of illegal voting following an investigation by the AG’s election fraud unit.
On a related note, the Public Interest Legal Foundation, a national election integrity law firm, filed a lawsuit last March against Harris County for allegedly failing to disclose noncitizen voter records as required by the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) of 1993, better known as the “Motor Voter” law. In May, Paxton urged a state court judge in a separate lawsuit to facilitate the foundation’s request after Harris County sued over an AG’s ruling that noncitizen records should be disclosed under Texas law.
