Notorious for voting fraud, San Antonio based ballot harvesting came to a head in 2021 when Rachel Rodriguez was arrested for election fraud, illegal voting, unlawfully assisting people voting by mail, and unlawfully possessing an official ballot.
Each such charge constitutes a felony under the Texas Election Code. Rodriguez was exposed in a Project Veritas video in the fall of 2020 while she engaged in vote harvesting leading up to America’s most fraudulent election.
The Election Fraud Division of the Office of the Attorney General reviewed dozens of hours of unedited, raw footage, which led to that particular arrest.
In an uncharacteristic moment of honesty, Rodriguez acknowledged on video that what she was doing is illegal and that she could go to jail for it. Rodriguez faces up to 20 years in prison.
“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.”
Last week Attorney General Paxton announced the formation of his statewide 2022 General Election Integrity Team, which is a concentrated effort to devote agency lawyers, investigators, support staff, and resources to ensuring this election season is run transparently and securely.
🔹The Integrity Team’s primary function is to serve as a focused resource to both election officials and the public.
🔹The agency will also monitor a public email address—firstname.lastname@example.org—to receive information about alleged violations of the Texas Election Code.
Attorney General Paxton leads an Election Integrity Division year-round. But this 2022 Team is a dedicated group specially tasked with overseeing the 2022 general election season.
“The foundation of our constitutional republic is a secure and transparent ballot,” said Attorney General Paxton. “It is why my office remains ever vigilant in defending the integrity of our elections. And it’s why I’m establishing a 2022 General Election Integrity Team.”
Attorney General Paxton is a national leader in election integrity. Under his leadership, individuals throughout the state have been held accountable for attempts to bend or break the boundaries of lawful practices set forth in the Texas Election Code.
