Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has gotten a conviction on a woman who committed 26 crimes involving voter fraud that never happens according to Democrats and their willing lapdogs in the media. Monica Mendez was convicted on three counts of illegal voting. She was also found guilty of 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 ballot harvesting operation for the benefit of a subsidized housing corporation in order to influence the outcome of a utility board election. District Judge Eli Garza sentenced Mendez to five years of deferred adjudication probation. At first, you might be saying to yourself that Mendez, only got probation for her crimes, but it is actually much worse than that.
When you get probation, the conviction stays on your record forever, but with deferred adjudication probation, after you successfully complete your probation, the conviction comes off your record completely. You then have no criminal record. For 26 crimes. Why bother even prosecuting someone if it has no effect on them whatsoever?
