Flashback: Texas Secretary of State’s Office Revealed that 95,000 People Identified as Non U.S. Citizens are Registered to Vote in the Lone Star State and Potentially Steal Elections

Published

On January 25, 2019, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton issued a statement following the Secretary of State’s discovery of 95,000 individuals identified by the Department of Public Safety as non-U.S. citizens who have a matching voter registration record in Texas. In addition, about 58,000 of them have voted in one or more Texas elections.

Paxton stated:

Every single instance of illegal voting threatens democracy in our state and deprives individual Texans of their voice. We’re honored to have partnered with the Texas Secretary of State’s office in the past on voter initiatives and we will spare no effort in assisting with these troubling cases. My Election Fraud Unit stands ready to investigate and prosecute crimes against the democratic process when needed. We have obtained a number of successful non-citizen voter fraud convictions, including prison sentences for Rosa Ortega in Tarrant County and Laura Garza in Montgomery County. And earlier this month, investigators from our office arrested Marites Curry, a non-citizen charged with illegal voting in Navarro County. Nothing is more vital to preserving our Constitution than the integrity of our voting process, and my office will do everything within its abilities to solidify trust in every election in the state of Texas. I applaud Secretary of State Whitley for his proactive work in safeguarding our elections.

According to Texas law, noncitizens who are legally in the state can obtain driver’s licenses by demonstrating proof of lawful presence to DPS. Citizens are the only individuals allowed to vote in the state. As of now, Texas law does not mandate the verification of a voter’s statement that they are a citizen.

During the timeframe of 2005-2017, the attorney general’s office prosecuted 97 defendants for a multitude of voter fraud violations. In 2018, Attorney General Paxton’s Election Fraud Unit prosecuted 33 defendants who ended up accumulating a total of 97 election fraud violations. The Election Fraud Unit was able to do so with a criminal justice grant coming from the governor’s office. In February of 2018, the attorney general rolled out a significant voter fraud initiative and addressed certain issues and matters connected to election law.

Election integrity will be a major issue in 2020 given how a number of states will be using mail-in ballots. On top of that, mass migration — both illegal and otherwise — could increase the risks of potential voter fraud. If state governments and the feds don’t get their act together, the U.S.’s cohesiveness as a nation will be at risk.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
