Mexican Citizen Sentenced To 8 Years In Prison For Voter Fraud In TX

Finally we have a case of proven voter fraud where someone was arrested and convicted. I believe this brings the total of proven fraudulent votes to .0000000000000001%. But hey, even one fraudulent vote is one too many.

DALLAS (CBS11) –  The family of a woman convicted of voter fraud is speaking out after a Tarrant County jury sentenced her to eight years in prison.

Prosecutors say the reason officials at the elections department in Dallas didn’t stop the voter fraud from happening is because Rosa Ortega claimed she was a citizen on her application.

Now the Tarrant County D.A.’s office is calling for those claims to be verified before handing out registration cards.

Ortega’s attorney said the mother of four will undoubtedly be deported.

“What’s going to happen to the kids? So it’s not fair,” Rosa’s uncle, Felipe Ortega said.

He points out his niece has spent almost her entire life in the U.S. Her attorney said she has a learning disability and was confused about the difference between being a citizen and a legal resident, so she thought she was allowed to vote.

“The jury didn’t believe that story. They believed that the defendant knew exactly what she was doing, and they responded accordingly,” Prosecutor Jonathan White said.

So many questions... was she an LPR to begin with? Did she ever at any time actually manage to cast a vote (beyond simply misrepresenting herself as a citizen and registering)? And if so whom did she actually vote for? :P

The answer to your first two questions (which is yes) are in the article. It's kind of funny how she got caught, She was already registered and voting in one precinct, then she moved and tried to register in the new precinct. When they asked her if she was an American citizen she said no, but said she was already voting in the other precinct. I didn't see anything on who her vote(s) were cast for.

Here is another news article on this case:

 

"During the trial, prosecutors showed that Rosa Maria Ortega -- a 37-year-old Mexican national who public records show has lived in the Dallas area since she was 15 -- falsely claimed U.S. citizenship on a voter registration form and voted five times between 2004 and 2014, according to a news release from the state attorney general's office...

 

I didn't have the study, the guidance, the education," Ortega testified. The Star-Telegram reported that she told jurors she thought state officials would tell her if she was not allowed to vote. However, the Tarrant County voter registration form clearly states that non-citizens should not register to vote."

Usual confusing story, seems the only reference to her having a GC is from her brother, an anchor baby.

 

Is she got a GC the question would be how? Not married.

 

Seems she insisted twice she was a US Citizen.

I have seen two cases of voter fraud in the news this year.  Both folks voted for Trump...cant we find examples of voter fraud for Clinton voters?  Unfair.
