Texas Attorney General accuses San Antonio woman of election fraud


Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton says Rachel Rodriquez was exposed in a Project Veritas video last fall. He says she engaged in vote harvesting leading up to the 2020 election.

Paxton says at one point Rodriquez admitted on video that what she was doing is illegal and that she could go to jail for it. She's accused of election fraud, illegal voting, unlawfully assisting people voting by mail, and unlawfully possessing an official ballot. She could face up to twenty years in prison if she's convicted.

Paxton says, "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. 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."
