Texas says it found 95,000 non-citizens on voter rolls; 58,000 have voted


Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced Friday that the state has discovered 95,000 non-citizens on the voter rolls going back to 1996, 58,000 of whom have voted in at least one Texas election -- an announcement likely to raise fresh concerns about the prospect of voter fraud.

The revelation is likely to have national consequences and stir debate and the role of voter fraud. President Trump created a commission in 2017 to investigate allegations of voter fraud in the 2016 election. But it was eventually dismantled by Trump after the group faced lawsuits, opposition from states and in-fighting among its members. Trump said at the time that Democrats refused to hand over data “because they know that many people are voting illegally.” Democrats have dismissed claims of voter fraud and accused Republicans of trying to disenfranchise minority voters with tight voter ID laws.

The only person of any import politically speaking that I have ever seen make the claim there is "no voter fraud" was Republican Collin Powell.

I certainly have never said there is "no" voter fraud and or election fraud.

This article about the Texas voter rolls is likely to go down the same way such reports have coming out of other states.

Names get flagged in the thousands, the OMG report comes out, then when the folks get down to the nitty gritty parsing and cross matching and verifying suddenly the OMG numbers drop and drop and drop to where the final reality doesn't match the original OMG reporting.

It will be fun to watch how this plays out.

As it is there is yet to be one name out of the 95,000 total mentioned that was tied to and representing a real illegal alien vote.

Let's wait and see how much of this is puffery.

From the NYTimes story referred to in the Fox article:

"But Democrats and voting rights advocates were skeptical of the state’s claims. More than 8.3 million people voted in the Texas governor’s race last year, which means that even if all 58,000 people who voted were, in fact, found to be noncitizens and voted in 2018 — a claim that no state official has made — they would have amounted to only 0.69 percent of all votes that were cast.

“Because we have consistently seen Texas politicians conjure the specter of voter fraud as pretext to suppress legitimate votes, we are naturally skeptical,” Representative Rafael Anchia, a Democrat in the Texas House of Representatives, said in a statement.

Kristen Clarke, the president of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, also cautioned that the state’s findings, and the speed with which the attorney general raised the specter of prosecution, could foreshadow an attempt at voter suppression.

“Texas has a rich history of undertaking action to make it harder for people to vote," she said."

We don’t have to wait and see how Righties try to score debating points with made up words and childish capitalizations in place of rational argument.

And we don't have to wait and see the DP Left DESPERATELY RUNNING FROM THE TOPIC.

The post you absurdly responded to was directly on topic. It suggested waiting for the facts to come out.

And nothing has changed in regard to WHO HAS VOTED, so far.


What, exactly, is the "ACCEPTBLE AMOUNT" of VOTER FRAUD to you and the rest of the Fraudocrats?

It shouldn't be hard, but it shouldn't be too easy for people to register to vote or to vote.

Back in the days when you had to have positive ID and proof of residence and citizenship--usually your passport, birth certificate, or social security card and a current utility bill sufficed--in order to register to vote, you had to provide that at the city or county clerks office and you had to register six weeks before the election, we didn't have a lot of illegal registrations. Yes, 'dead people' still voted now and then, but a valid photo ID at the polling place would stop almost all of that. And having to get to the polls on the designated election day ensured that only those who really wanted to exercise their right to vote did so. Absentee ballots were still used by those who could not get to the polls but they too had to be ordered six weeks ahead of the election. And if you didn't vote in the primary election or general election in any election year, your registration was automatically removed from the rolls and you had to re-register. Also you re-registered if you moved out of your precinct.

Not oppressive or disabling to anybody, but it was mostly the people who took their responsibility to vote very seriously who registered to vote and who voted. And a positive side effect is that most people who voted knew what and who they were voting for.

Good for Texas for discovering and dealing with a serious problem. I wish all other states would follow suit.

Result: people had a great deal of confidence in the integrity of the electoral process and that officials were honestly and honorably elected by people who actually cared enough to make the effort to vote.

So the 58,000 who HAVE VOTED IN OUR ELECTIONS should be ignored.


Apparently there are quite a few of that 58,000 who the Secretary of States office is now notifying counties that the names were added mistakenly. From the article,

“We’re going to proceed very carefully,” said Douglas Ray, a special assistant county attorney in Harris County, where 29,822 voters were initially flagged by the state. A “substantial number” of them are now being marked as citizens, Ray said.

Nothing like a big mistake right out of the gate to build confidence in the process....

Just As I Predicted!

It has started.

Texas' election chief apologizes over flawed noncitizen list

Secretary of State David Whitley had previously refused to acknowledge mistakes in the three weeks since his office gave election fraud prosecutors a voter list that included tens of thousands of U.S. citizens who were wrongly flagged .

Texas' election chief apologizes over flawed noncitizen list | KEYE

No doubt the more this progresses the more it will be revealed there were even more names wrongly included on that OMG list.

Why do so many Republicans keep stepping into these flawed flagged voter roll traps of their own creation?

Idiots!

Think Fat Donald will issue a an apology for jumping on this major screw up by Texas that he used to further promote his false narrative of massive voter fraud happening in America?

LOL

Yeah, what was I thinking!

Only 95,000?


Wait until you see how many are on the rolls in Texas, California, New York, etc. in 2020.

Of course, we will never know.

No wonder many American citizens no longer even bother to vote.
