Project Veritas exposed her last fall in a video as she engaged in vote harvesting leading up to the 2020 election.
If convicted, Rodriguez could face up to 20 years in prison.
Ken Paxton’s Official website said:
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton today announced the arrest of Rachel Rodriguez for election fraud, illegal voting, unlawfully assisting people voting by mail, and unlawfully possessing an official ballot. Each charge constitutes a felony under the Texas Election Code…The Election Fraud Division of the Office of the Attorney General reviewed dozens of hours of unedited, raw footage, which led to this arrest. In an uncharacteristic moment of honesty, Rodriguez acknowledged on video that what she was doing was illegal and that she could go to jail for it. If convicted, Rodriguez could face up to 20 years in prison.
A statement from Attorney General Ken Paxton said:
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.”
Rodriguez is not the only Texas woman to be arrested. Monica Mendez of Port Lavaca pleaded guilty to 26 felony counts of voter fraud, as well. The counts included three counts of illegal voting, eight counts of election fraud, seven counts of assisting a voter to submit a ballot by mail, and eight counts of unlawful possession of a mail ballot. Mendez ran a vote-harvesting operation and was trying to influence the outcome of a utility board election. Mendez was sentenced to five years of deferred adjudication probation.
These arrests are promising, but still only just a few of the many alleged cases of voter fraud from all over the country.
Dinesh D’Souza’s “2000 Mules” has been highly critiqued, but in light of these arrests, and many more to come, people like Bill Barr will have to watch their words carefully.
“My opinion then and my opinion now is that the election was not stolen by fraud. And I haven’t seen anything since the election that changes my mind on that, including the 2000 Mules movies,” Barr said at the January 6 hearings.
D’Souza came back and said this on Twitter, “The level of ignorance displayed by Bill Barr here is truly stunning.”
