Voter fraud – it's real ... and it's lawlessness

Vote Here (sign)A former leader in the Texas GOP admits being "shocked" at the recent announcement of massive voter fraud in the Lone Star State for more than two decades.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton reported last week that the state had discovered about 95,000 non-U.S. citizens on voter rolls going back to 1996 – and that roughly 58,000 of those foreign nationals have reportedly voted in at least one state election. Paxton says illegal voting threatens democracy and deprives individual Texans of their voice in the election process.

"Nothing is more vital to preserving our Constitution than the integrity of our voting process," says the Texas AG in a press release.

Cathie Adams is first vice president of Eagle Forum and a former president of the Republican Party of Texas. "It's absolutely shocking that 95,000 people have been identified," she responded when contacted about Paxton's report. "Imagine how many have not been identified yet. I think it's shocking; I think it's lawlessness."

Adams is convinced illegal voting played a major role in Republican Senator Ted Cruz's near loss to Democrat Beto O'Rourke in November.

"And the reason I think that is because there were people at polling places who were bragging about the fact that they were allowing to vote anyone who had a driver's license or any ID," she describes. "It could have even been a water bill that had their name on it."

Paxton's office points out that state law permits noncitizens to obtain driver's licenses, but that only citizens are eligible to vote – and Texas law currently doesn't require verification of a voter's statement that they are a citizen.
