Kansas is not about to shy away from trying voter fraud cases. The Kansas Secretary of State has officially charged Victor David Garcia, a national from Peru, with three counts of voter fraud.
The illegal immigrant decided to vote in the 2012, 2013, and 2014 elections, despite his illegal status.
With President Trump bringing voter fraud issues to the forefront after his election when he said that millions of votes were cast illegally – mainly, by illegal immigrants, states were encouraged to investigate their own voting records. Many states have found case after case of voter fraud, and many of those states have already brought up charges on those caught voting illegally.
An investigation in Kansas showed that more than 30 illegal immigrants were registered to vote. How that slipped past the voter registration office is still a mystery. However, this is one of the few cases that the state was able to successfully prove the guilt of the party in question.
The Daily Caller reports:
“The problem of non-citizens voting is a serious one, both in Kansas and nationally,” Kobach said in the news release. “Every time a non-citizen votes, it cancels out the vote of a United States citizen.”
A Kansas investigation revealed that at least 30 cases of non-citizens registering to vote existed from 2003 through 2013. The state was able to prove three cases in which the individual in question actually voted during a federal election.
Bebek signed a plea deal that includes a $5,000 fine and three years of “unsupervised” probation.
President Donald Trump repeatedly asserted that there was rampant voter fraud during the 2016 election, a claim quickly dispatched by Democrats as false.
Although there is no evidence that millions of votes were cast illegally, there were several pockets of very questionable irregularities, like in Florida’s Palm Beach County, where a sheriff’s candidate allegedly ordered and filled out absentee ballots for residents.
