Texas to remove 98,000 'non-citizens' from voting rolls, 58,000 of which have voted before
Texas officials have launched a purge of 95,000 people from the voter rolls, saying they do not appear to be U.S. citizens.The AG should be ready to take action against country election officials if they fail to respond to the evidence. In the past, these officials have been an impediment to cleaning up the voter rolls. I wonder how many of the 58,000 voted for Beto O'Rourke?
Texas Secretary of State David Whitley said working with the Department of Public Safety, his office has been able to identify the potential non-U.S. citizens among those registered to vote, including 58,000 who have voted before in Texas elections.
The Secretary of State cannot remove those voters from the rolls themselves. That is up to county elections officials. But Whitley has recommended counties take action by sending notices to the non-U.S. voters that would give them a chance to prove they are legal U.S. citizens and eligible to vote.
Already the list of 58,000 people suspected to have voted despite being non-U.S. citizens is being forwarded to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton for potential legal action against those individuals. It is a felony for a person to vote in Texas when they know they are not eligible.
