(UnitedVoice.com) – For years, Democrats have said that voter fraud is not an issue in the United States. They’ve made these claims in order to dispute stricter election security laws in several states around the country. A recent announcement in Texas blows that argument out of the water.
On June 26, the office of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) announced the state is currently working on over 500 cases of voter fraud in the state. He said they’ll “prosecute voter fraud every time [they] find it.”
Thanks, @GregAbbott_TX! We will prosecute voter fraud every time we find it. Currently our office has over 500 cases waiting to be heard in court. Voter fraud is real. Texans deserve to know their vote is legally and securely counted. #ElectionIntegrity #Fraud https://t.co/ZhUh8lpHri

His remarks come one day after his office released a report about his Election Fraud Unit arresting a woman, Monica Mendez, for multiple counts of election fraud related to the 2018 midterms. The counts against Mendez include: eight counts of returning marked ballots without consent; eight counts of voter fraud; seven counts of unlawful voter assistance; and three counts of illegal voting.
Governor Greg Abbott (R) thanked Paxton in a tweet and said he’s going to continue to “make it easy to vote but hard to cheat.” Presumably, that means the state is going to pass more laws to secure elections. Like other Republicans, Texas lawmakers want to ensure that people can trust the results of elections and know that their vote truly counts.
