A San Antonio woman is under arrest on accusations of voter fraud. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton says Rachel Rodriguez committed a "shocking and blatantly illegal action" which was filmed by the conservative group Project Veritas. Paxton calls the arrest a victory for election integrity. Rodriguez is accused of being involved in vote harvesting before last year's election. She could get 20 years in prison if convicted.
“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.”
