After an exhaustive investigation, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton tweeted Friday his office learned 95,000 non-U.S. citizens are registered to vote in the Lone Star State – and 58,000 of them have voted in one or more elections between 1996 and 2018.
Reminder: Ted Cruz only bested Beto O’Rourke by a 200,000 vote margin in November. (Twitchy)
VOTER FRAUD ALERT: The @TXsecofstate discovered approx 95,000 individuals identified by DPS as non-U.S. citizens have a matching voter registration record in TX, approx 58,000 of whom have voted in TX elections. Any illegal vote deprives Americans of their voice.

So, arrests are forthcoming?
Damn. That’s a lot of illegal votes.
Will there be a round-up of these folks or do we not have their addresses? https://t.co/8dkOKMO5ev

And we’ve been told time and time again that this just is not possible:

That can’t be possible. Voter fraud never happens, we’re told. https://t.co/SABlAEHaPs

But…I was told voter fraud didn’t exist?

Project Veritas, take the well-earned victory lap:
On election day we found a poll worker in TX saying “we got tons” of non-citizen (DACA) voters, if he’s got a driver’s liscense, “he’s good.” Anyone who can help us further investigate voter fraud can contact us here https://t.co/Fn3nQMMKZ3 https://t.co/eG5IIjDo2h

Voter fraud remains a top concern for state legislatures, who say today’s disclosure is but the latest reason why they passed a law requiring voters to show a photo ID before voting.
Illegal voting is a second-degree felony, punishable by up to 20 years in prison.
