Ed. Of course,
voter fraud plays such an insignificant role in each election that
investigation and prosecution are simply not worth the time or money invested.
So say the beneficiaries of all the fraudulent votes.
Wanna guess which
party benefited from the criminal activities of these illegals?

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced Tuesday that
authorities arrested a noncitizen for her alleged role in a voter assistance
scheme during a 2016 border city runoff election.
Marcela Gutierrez, a
non-United States citizen, was taken into custody following an investigation
conducted by the AG’s office. On June 3, she was indicted by a Hidalgo County grand jury and charged with
illegal voting for marking a ballot without a voter’s consent in a June
2016 Hidalgo city runoff election. Gutierrez purportedly misled a voter to
believe she was demonstrating how to use a voting machine when, actually, the
accused cast votes on a ballot for a slate of candidates she was paid to
In Texas, illegal
voting is a second degree felony punishable by two to 20 years in prison and a
fine of up to $10,000. Gutierrez also faces 10 misdemeanor counts of unlawfully
assisting a voter.
Two of her fellow
campaign workers, Sylvia Arjona and Sara Ornelas, were implicated in the
alleged voter assistance scheme. According to information provided by Paxton’s office,
the three women stand accused of taking advantage of elderly and/or disabled
Arjona and Ornelas
were charged with a total of seven counts of unlawfully assisting a voter. Each
offense is a class A misdemeanor that carries a penalty of up to one year in
jail and a $4,000 fine.
Arjona is reportedly
the wife of Hidalgo County ISD trustee Ben Arjona, according to the McAllen Monitor.
highlight the unfortunate widespread abuse of elder and disabled voters in our
state,” said Paxton in a prepared statement. “Texas law provides accommodations
to assist those who cannot vote their own ballots, but those provisions are
being abused to deprive vulnerable Texans of their voice in government.”
Texas voters have the
right to cast their ballots free from interference and intimidation, noted the
AG, calling it unlawful for anyone to provide assistance to a voter who is
ineligible for help or has not requested it. Paxton stated it is against the
law for anyone assisting a voter with a ballot to suggest how to vote or to
cast a vote without the voter’s consent and wishes expressed.
The AG’s office said
they referred a total of 18 separately filed voter fraud cases against these
women for prosecution to the Public Integrity Unit of the Hidalgo County
District Attorney’s Office.
