Texas Democrats Investigated for Encouraging Non-Citizens to Vote Illegally By Jay Greenberg

Texas Democrats Investigated for Encouraging Non-Citizens to Vote Illegally

The Texas Democratic Party is being investigated after it was alleged that non-citizens had been sent voter-registration forms that had been interfered with to encourage them to vote illegally as citizens. According to Governor Greg Abbott, Texas Democrats are under investigation after being accused of sending out voting forms to immigrants with the citizenship box already checked “Yes.” A probe was launched following new complaints filed Thursday asking prosecutors to examine what laws may have been broken. District attorneys and the federal Justice Department were alerted to the pre-filled applications by the Public Interest Legal Foundation - a nonprofit specializing in election integrity. The complaints also included a signed affidavit from a man who said some of his relatives, who aren’t citizens, received the mailing that encouraged them to make fraudulent applications. Logan Churchwell, a spokesperson for the PILF, a group that’s made its mark policing states’ voter registration practices, slammed the Dems for attempting to invite foreign meddling in US elections, saying: “This is how the Texas Democratic Party is inviting foreign influence in an election in a federal election cycle.” The Texas secretary of state’s office also reported similar complaints, both from immigrants and from people who said they got suspicious mailings asking them to register their dead relatives to vote. Earlier this week, Neon Nettle reported on the arrest of four members of a voter fraud ring in Texas who were caught rigging the votes for Democratic candidates ahead of the 2016 primary elections. The all-female gang was apprehended last week following a federal investigation, with all four women facing felony charges. The women are accused of being part of, what Attorney General Ken Paxton’s office called, an organized voter fraud ring in Fort Worth, designed to swing elections in favor of the Democrats. Paxton’s office said the voter fraud charges involve mail-in ballots sent in ahead of the 2016 primary election in Texas, with elderly voters on the north side of Fort Worth being the prime target of the ring.
