The undercover investigative journalists at Project Veritas exposed another voter fraud scam – this time infiltrating a Texas ‘ballot chasing’ operation in Texas which targets senior citizens.
Here is the investigative group’s latest undercover video :
The racket consists of operatives, such as Raquel Rodriguez – “nominally a political consultant for GOP House candidate Mauro E. Garza, the owner of the San Antonio’s Pegasus Nightclub” – who “develops personal relationships with senior citizens when she harvests their ballots and then uses different post offices so that the bundles do not draw suspicion.”
Despite consulting for a GOP candidate, Rodriguez was caught on camera convincing a voter to switch their ballot from John Cornyn (R) to M.J. Hegar (D).
Raquel Rodriguez: “That’s my job.”
According to Veritas, “After the voter “corrected” her ballot, Rodriguez presented her with a shawl as a gift,” adding “Rodriguez said Garza gave her a gift budget of $2,500 for his campaign, and in addition to the shawls, she gives voters rosaries, diabetic socks and wallets.”
“So, if ya’ll are my seniors, I’m literally picking you up. I’m going to your house, you’re doing your ballot,” Rodriguez told the undercover journalist. “I go throughout the entire city. If I have a bunch of them, what I do if I have a bunch of them, I’ll take 20 [ballots] here, 30 [ballots] here, 40 [ballots] here.”
Raquel Rodriguez: “I can honestly say I’m bringing at least at least 7,000 votes to the polls.”
Journalist: “Seven thousand—and that’s for San Antonio for this area too. It’s a lot.”
Rodriguez: “That’s a lot. It’s a lot, period. Just so you know–have an idea–so this is what I do
As TJV reported previously on other operations, frequently ballot harvesting involves targeting senior citizens:
Gregg County Commissioner Shannon Brown and three co-defendants in connection to an alleged vote harvesting scheme involving a Democratic primary in 2018, he was charged with 134 felony charges, the scam involved illegally going into nursing homes, with the complicity of the nursing home staff, and filling out and forging the signatures of nursing home residents; signing up homeless individuals to vote using the ballot harvester’s address then completing the ballot and forging the homeless individual’s signature”
Project Veritas has released the results of an investigation into alleged ballot harvesting by supporters of Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar in Minnesota, a key swing state in the 2020 presidential election. Video footage captured by Project Veritas shows an operative, Liban Mohamed, bragging about collecting hundreds of ballots.
Below is a list of more cases of voter issues with mail-in ballots
- In Brooklyn, 25 percent of mail-in ballots were ruled invalid during the June Democrat primary.
- In a New Jersey special election, nearly 20 percent of the ballots were thrown out, and four people are being prosecuted for fraud.
- In a Florida primary, more than 35,000 mail-in ballots were rejected, and over 100,000 ballots were rejected in California.
- In Pennsylvania’s primary, half of the counties were still counting ballots a week after the election.
- The story of discarded military ballots discovered in Pennsylvania, many of them were cast for Trump.
- Reports in Wisconsin of three trays of mail containing absentee ballots were found in a ditch.
- In North Carolina, voters reported receiving two ballots in the mail.
There are literally hundreds of stories about dead people receiving mail-in ballots, people receiving multiple ballots, deceased cats and dogs receiving ballots, and additional ballot harvesting schemes.
Yet, the mainstream media, even after reporting on these stories, will tell you that Trump has no basis in claiming there are instances of voter fraud and mass mail-in voting is a problem. It’s fascinating how that works.
