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.

Report: Ghislane Maxwell Being “Moved from Cell to Cell” to Avoid “Assassins”
They fear another Epstein incident.
Longtime Jeffrey Epstein associate Ghislane Maxwell is reportedly being “moved from cell to cell” to prevent any potential assassination attempts while in jail, according to an anonymous source close to the heiress who spoke to the Daily Mail.
Maxwell is being detained at MDC Brooklyn, a federal detention facility. It was originally feared she’d be placed in the Manhattan Detention Complex, the facility where the shocking death of infamous pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein took place. Maxwell is being federally charged with six counts relating to her alleged participation in Epstein’s underage sex trafficking operation, after being arrested at a remote New Hampshire home.
“She is also someone who isn’t posh or prissy. She is being moved from cell to cell and sometimes has a cellmate, sometimes not. They [the authorities] are terrified someone will try to kill her so they keep moving her around.”
The Department of Justice is taking extraordinary precautions in safeguarding Maxwell within the federal jail facility, doubtlessly seeking to avoid a repeat of the shocking Epstein death that continues to cast a shadow over the American criminal justice system.
The Daily Mail has reported on another supposed (former) Maxwell associate, who claims that Epstein’s former madame has video evidence of the billionaire’s elite political and financial connects engaging in the sexual abuse of minors. Epstein and Maxwell allegedly procured the footage for use as dirt, if they were ever threatened with prosecution for criminal activities.
Maxwell’s first court appearance is currently slated for Friday.
