Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced today that Rachel Rodriguez has been arrested for election fraud, fraudulent voting, illegally assisting people by mail in voting, and unlawfully holding an official vote. Under the Texas Election Code, each charge constitutes a felony.

Last fall, Rachel Rodriguez was revealed in a Project Veritas video when she was participating in the collection of votes leading up to the 2020 election. The Office of the Attorney General’s Election Fraud Division checked dozens of hours of unedited, raw video, leading to this arrest.

“Well, she was arrested by state agents, and she’s being processed in Kendall county, which, from our perspective is interesting because none of the allegations are said to have occurred in Kendall county,” said Nico LaHood, attorney.

“I can say this subjectively, as former prosecutors, that there was more of a thorough investigation it seems that there could have been,” said LaHood.

“We’re going to analyze this completely, we’re not going to leave any rock unturned,” said LaHood. Rachel and all people accused, all citizens accused of criminal allegation by the government, deserve an aggressive defense in a fair process, our job is to ensure that Rachel gets both of those and we plan to do that.”

On video, Rachel Rodriguez admitted that what she was doing was illegal and that she could go to prison for it. Rachel Rodriguez could face up to 20 years in jail if convicted.

“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,” said Attorney General Paxton.

“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,” Attorney General Paxton added.

The investigation is ongoing. Individuals involved in this organized vote harvesting scheme or with knowledge of it are encouraged to come forward and cooperate with the Attorney General’s Office.

Arrested Rachel Rodriguez is Biden election official?

One tweet about the Rachel Rodriguez arrest has attracted more than 60K likes and over 30K retweets.

This tweet says: “Biden election official has been arrested for widespread election fraud in Texas. Felony charges include election fraud, illegal voting, illegal vote-by-mail, possession of official ballots. Election fraud is investigated and prosecuted in Texas. GA? Get busy…”

But it seems misleading because Rachel Rodriguez has not been confirmed as Biden election official so far. We need to wait for further investigation.
