Texas Woman Jailed For Election Fraud Thanks To Project Veritas' Video
A Texas woman proves, yet again, there was clear voter fraud taking place prior to the 2020 election. An arrest was made following the October report done by Project Veritas that showed hidden camera footage of a Texas campaign worker voter harvesting for pay, among other crimes.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said the suspect got caught on a Project Veritas video in the midst of "shocking and blatantly illegal action." It was that video evidence that led to an arrest Wednesday, Paxton said.
"Many continue to claim that there's no such thing as election fraud," the attorney general added. "We've always known that such a claim is false and misleading, and today we have additional hard evidence."
The Texas AG Announced her arrest Wednesday:
"Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton today announced the arrest of Rachel Rodriguez for election fraud, illegal voting, unlawfully assisting people voting by mail, and unlawfully possessing an official ballot. Each charge constitutes a felony under the Texas Election Code. Rodriguez was exposed in a Project Veritas video last fall while she engaged in vote harvesting leading up to the 2020 election."
Paxton's statement added, "The Election Fraud Division of the Office of the Attorney General reviewed dozens of hours of unedited, raw footage, which led to this arrest. In an uncharacteristic moment of honesty, Rodriguez acknowledged on video that what she was doing is illegal and that she could go to jail for it. If convicted, Rodriguez could face up to 20 years in prison."
"This is a victory for election integrity and a strong signal that anyone who attempts to defraud the people of Texas, deprive them of their vote, or undermine the integrity of elections will be brought to justice," Paxton added.
His office also said that individuals involved in or with knowledge of "this organized vote harvesting scheme are encouraged to come forward and cooperate with the Office of the Attorney General."
Reason For Concern:
Voter fraud doesn't seem to be held to the same standard as any crime. A report was done by News investigator Jody Barr that showed the majority of the people found guilty in Texas' of voter fraud didn't spend a single night in jail.
In Texas, 150 people have been charged with voter fraud since 2004, KXAN News investigator Jody Barr reported in October. He reported 138 of those cases ended with either a guilty plea or a jury conviction, with the “vast majority” of cases settled through plea agreements with the attorney general.
Only 24 of those convicted spent at least a day in jail. The rest of the defendants were either given probation or pre-trail diversion deals, Barr reported.
Rodriguez did not deny what she told Project Veritas' operative- she really couldn't because of the video evidence against her. Instead, the San Antonio campaign worker claimed that she lied and that none of what she told the project was true. Adding that she suspected something 'was not right' and lied to reveal the truth claiming that she was simply conducting an investigation of her own.
Watch just a few of the videos of Rodriguez and judge for yourself. To me, I see a person speaking too fluid, without pause, to be lying. That could just be my experience. If you do watch it, come back and tell me what you think in the comments below.
