The mayor of Edinburg, Texas, and his wife were arrested and charged with voter fraud Thursday, according to Attorney General Ken Paxton.
“City of Edinburg Mayor Richard Molina and his wife, Dalia, are charged with illegal voting, a second-degree felony punishable by two to 20 years in jail and an up to $10,000 fine, related to his 2017 mayoral election,” according to The Houston Chronicle. “Molina unseated the incumbent Mayor Richard Garcia after winning by more than 1,200 votes in that election.”
The couple reportedly asked voters to change their addresses to locations where they do not live – including to an apartment complex that Molina owns – so they could vote for him in November of 2017.
“Voter fraud is an affront to democracy and places the decision-making authority of the Texas electorate in the hands of those who have no right to make those choices,” said Paxton. “My office will always do everything it can to protect the integrity of Texas elections and the rights of every legal voter to cast a ballot and have it counted accurately.”
The report said that the city spokeswoman is set to address the charges next week.
Early this year, the Texas Secretary of State uncovered massive voter fraud within the state, which the political left is desperately trying to turn blue.
Big League Politics reported:
Texas Secretary of State David Whitley released a statement documenting the conclusions of his year-long investigation into voter fraud within the state.
Whitley has identified over 95,000 non-citizens registered as eligible voters throughout the state of Texas. Out of that massive pool of illegal registered voters, the Secretary of State’s office discovered that 58,000 registered non-citizen voters have voted in one or more elections.
This revelation of fundamentally undemocratic and illegitimate voting practices enabled by lax voter registration and ID laws is sure to cast doubt upon the results of several close elections in the state this past election cycle. For example, Republican Congressman John Culberson, who had represented the state’s 7th congressional district west of Houston since 2001, lost his bid for re-election to Democrat Lizzie Pannill Fletcher by around 12,000 votes. It’s possible that ballots cast by ineligible non-citizen voters in the election could have cost him victory.
Voter fraud is a felony in Texas, and Whitley’s office is providing information on his investigation to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. Since 2005, 130 cases of voter fraud have been prosecuted in Texas– perhaps with greater frequency than in other states plagued with election integrity breaches, but still a mere drop in the ocean when compared to the figures released in Whitley’s investigation.

Tucker Carlson Slams Mick Mulvaney for Immigration Betrayal
Mulvaney claims America is “desperate” for more legal immigration.
Tucker Carlson slammed White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney for undermining President Trump’s groundbreaking America First vision during a segment on ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ Friday.
Mulvaney recently shocked Trump supporters with his embrace of globalist principles, claiming that America is “desperate” for higher levels of legal immigration according to reports from the Washington Post.
“But now, bizarrely… One of [Trump’s] closest aides seems determined the ruin the President’s achievement.”
Carlson presented a comprehensive America First rebuttal to Mulvaney’s dubious claim, pointing out that Trump’s restrictive immigration policies had led to the tight labor markets fueling wage growth for the working class. Mulvaney’s proposal to buff immigration, a policy long sought by big business interests in order to guarantee a supply of cheap labor, would destroy the wage gains earned by workers under Trump’s presidency.
Watch the segment here:
Mulvaney should be considered formally on notice in light of Carlson’s expose of his desire to undermine President Trump’s America First immigration platform. It’s questionable that he’s even working at the White House at all, considering he’s advocating for policies one might expect to see coming from the front groups of longtime anti-Trumpers Charles Koch and George Soros.
Carlson got to the heart of the driving motivation behind the policy proposals sought by pro-big business advocates such as Mulvaney.
“[Mulvaney] would rather replace our American working class with grateful foreigners who will work for less. That way, wages stay low, and profits stay high- donors are happy again. This is once again, the opposite of what Donald Trump ran on. it’s what he railed against in speech after speech. So why is Mick Mulvaney- who passionately disagrees with Donald Trump- running Donald Trump’s White House?”
A question that President Trump and his longtime supporters must consider closely.
