Liberals continue to cling to their claim that there is no vote fraud in the U.S.A. But a new report by authorities in Texas just found that 58,000 illegal votes were cast by non-citizens in the Lone Star state over the last few years.
The Texas Department of Public Safety concluded a year-long investigation into the Lone Star State’s electoral system and found that there are nearly 100,000 non-eligible people registered to vote and 58,000 actually voted illegally.
Texas Secretary of State David Whitley announced the results of the investigation on Friday.
“Integrity and efficiency of elections in Texas require accuracy of our state’s voter rolls, and my office is committed to using all available tools under the law to maintain an accurate list of registered voters,” Whitley said in a press release.
“Our agency has provided extensive training opportunities to county voter registrars so that they can properly perform list maintenance activities in accordance with federal and state law, which affords every registered voter the chance to submit proof of eligibility,” the release added.
Also on Friday, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said that his department is ready to investigate and prosecute any voter fraud cases.
“Every single instance of illegal voting threatens democracy in our state and deprives individual Texans of their voice,” Paxton said.
Many of the voters were registered using driver’s licenses. The state allows non-citizens to attain driver’s licenses but they should not be used to register to vote, the state noted.
Paxton said that the listings will be broken down to county level and names of illicit voters will be sent to the county election offices for further action.
County offices will be responsible for canceling illicit registrations.
Liberals across the country continue to insist that eliminating illegal voters is a way to “suppress” the vote, but this claim is absurd. An illegal vote should not be cast in the first place, so canceling the registration of an illegal voter is not “suppressing” anything.
You can bet that every state has a hundred thousand such illegal voters, just like Texas. And that means we have up to 500,000 illegally registered voters! And that amount of illegal voting is quite enough to throw elections to undeserving candidates.
