• “Protecting the integrity of elections is essential to our democracy”

    More “nonexistent” voter fraud in South Texas:

    Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s Criminal Prosecutions Division will prosecute Brownsville residents Jose A. Garza and Rafael Elizondo, who were indicted for possessing marked ballots without the consent of the voter.

    “Protecting the integrity of elections is essential to our democracy and a top priority of my administration,” said General Paxton. “As long as there are criminals seeking to exploit our system of elections, we stand ready to investigate, prosecute and restore confidence that the will of the people of Texas is heard.”

    Both politiqueros were charged with felonies for illegally possessing multiple ballots in a 2012 Democratic primary runoff election. These prosecutions are the latest in a series of voter fraud charges and convictions in the Rio Grande Valley, and officials say more indictments are possible.
