A state grand jury has decided to indict two women in Arizona’s Yuma County for voter fraud, with an affidavit alleging they participated in illegal “ballot harvesting” of mail-in ballots.
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich announced that Guillermina Fuentes and Alma Yadira Juarez are charged with one count of ballot abuse, a class six felony in the state. An affidavit alleges that Fuentes and Yadira possessed and delivered four mail-in ballots to a voting precinct at one time in contravention of state law. Under Arizona law, only a member of a person’s household may deliver their ballot to a precinct center for them.
One of the accused currently serves as a school board member for Gadsden Elementary in Yuma.
In a twist, Guillermina Fuentes was sued herself for accusing a San Luis, Arizona mayoral candidate of orchestrating voter fraud in 2010, with the candidate alleging Fuentes libeled her.
The fraud in question allegedly occurred before the August primary election in Arizona. Ballot harvesting is illegal in Arizona, with the state legislature having passed a law in 2016 to criminalize the mass collection of mail-in ballots, usually by political operatives. Watchdog organizations have previously accused Democratic interest groups of engaging in mass ballot harvesting, and Arizona has used mass mail-in election procedures for decades.
The allegations against Fuentes and Juarez are not a mass-scale incidence of fraud that could affect the 2020 election, but they speak to the vulnerabilities of election systems in hotly contested states and counties across the country.
“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
