Four people were arrested in Texas for election fraud in Medina in 2018, during the 2018 primary elections. In total, 150 votes were defrauded, but it is indicative that election fraud was also detected in Texas.
On February 11, the Texas Election Fraud Unit arrested Medina County Justice of the Peace Tomas Ramirez after arresting Leonor Rivas Garza, Eva Ann Martinez and Mary Balderrama on the same charges.
According to a statement from Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton's office, the case involved allegations of vote-gathering in Medina County Assisted Living Centers in the 2018 Medina County primary election.
Ramirez faces one tally of organized election fraud, one tally of mail order voting assistance and 17 counts of illegal possession of a ballot or envelope, according to the news.
Balderrama is accused of organized electoral fraud, illegal vote counting, illegal possession of ballot papers or ballot envelopes and then of other electoral crimes. Similar allegations were later linked to Garza and Martinez.
The Texas Attorney General's Office did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Epoch Times.
In a similar case, Raquel Rodriguez, a member of the same family, prided herself on being able to provide thousands of votes by thousands in cash and was arrested in January on charges that included election fraud and illegal voting. Based on the footage, Paxton, a Republican, has opened an investigation. That investigation led to the arrest, Paxton announced on January 13. The penalty that the Rodriquezes risk is up to 20 years.
If electoral fraud is so common in a state as serious about the matter as Texas, what will have happened in the states where, at the last minute, they changed the rules by accepting unlimited postal voting, such as, for example, Pennsylvania? It is not that, in two years, we will discover that there were major electoral fraud, we will see arrests, we will know that the laws have been violated, but nothing more can be done to change the now consolidated electoral result. Another sign that the American electoral system must be reviewed from the roots.
