It appears the lamestream media fact-checkers were wrong!
A woman in Texas who was allegedly seen stuffing ballot boxes in Dinesh D’Souza’s hit documentary 2000 Mules has been arrested on 26 counts of election fraud.
Rachel Rodriguez who was filmed by Project Veritas allegedly ballot harvesting could now be facing 20 years if convicted of all 26 counts of election fraud.
General Paxton would be quoted saying “many continue to claim that there’s no such thing as election fraud. We’ve always known that such a claim is false and misleading, and today we have additional hard evidence”.
The First Light broke the story:
A Texas woman named Rachel Rodriguez was arrested on 26 counts of election fraud, illegal voting, and unlawfully assisting people voting by mail, and unlawfully possessing an official ballot.
Each charge constitutes a felony under the Texas Election Code.
A Project Veritas video last fall exposed her as she engaged in vote harvesting leading up to the 2020 election.
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.
“Many continue to claim that there’s no such thing as election fraud. We’ve always known that such a claim is false and misleading, and today we have additional hard evidence
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,” said Attorney General Paxton.
“The shocking and blatantly illegal action documented by Project Veritas demonstrates a form of election fraud my office continually investigates and prosecutes. I am fiercely committed to ensuring the voting process is secure and fair throughout the state, and my office is prepared to assist any Texas county in combating this insidious, un-American form of fraud.”
NBC got the scoop too:
A San Antonio woman has been arrested for allegedly committing fraud in the November election.
Republican Texas Attorney General announced the charges Wednesday against Rachel Rodriguez, who is accused of vote harvesting leading up to the election. She is facing charges of election fraud, illegal voting, unlawfully assisting people voting by mail and unlawfully possessing an official ballot.
Rodriguez was the subject of a Project Veritas video last fall where she said she could deliver mail-in votes for cash. The video was captured by retired federal agents who are now private investigators.
Paxton said hours of footage led to her arrest.
