In the second part of their investigation, undercover journalists from Project Veritas have exposed serious corrupt practices when it comes to voting in Texas. If there are more people across the U.S. doing what Raquel is doing in Texas, this could affect the legitimacy of all local, state and presidential elections.
James O’Keefe, founder and CEO of Project Veritas, has exposed multiple scandals across the U.S. in his undercover videos, including a recent story involving a cash for votes harvesting scheme with Ilhan Omar in Minnesota.
According to O’Keefe:
Raquel Rodriguez was recorded with hidden camera explaining how she and her confederates pressure and reward targeted voters in order to meet the vote totals campaigns and candidates have contracted them to meet.
Raquel Rodriguez boasts about all the other political power brokers who are in her pocket and she told our journalists she has already brought in 7,000 votes.
If Rodriguez is truly responsible for 7,000 votes delivered in Bexar County so far, it is a stunning example of how fragile our republic has become.
As reported by Project Veritas:
Rodriguez, a political operative who described herself as a ballot chaser, told Project Veritas undercover journalists, posing as potential clients, that one of her main jobs is helping Mauro Garza, the Republican House hopeful for Texas’ 20th District.
Garza, who owns San Antonio’s Pegasus nightclub, met with Rodriguez to discuss what she could do for him as he was launching his congressional campaign, she said.
“Mauro, right now, he said: ‘OK, Raquel, if you were running, what would you do?’ So, he sat me down and I said: ‘I would do this, this, this, this, and this.’ He said: ‘How much money do you think you would need?’ And I budgeted everything, right? OK, so you do it,’” she said.
“He was paying me $5,000 a month, but now he’s paying me $8,000 a month, why? Because I took on his extra jobs,” she said.
After Project Veritas released the first part of their investigation, GOP House hopeful Mauro Garza released a statement condemning the practices and confirmed Rodriguez is no longer working for his campaign:
“A former Mauro Garza campaign volunteer was recorded alleging voter fraud in our local elections. I welcome any investigation and accountability to expose these outlandish allegations.
I do not endorse or support any wrongdoing or voter fraud. If any member of my campaign team, paid or volunteer, engages in or gives the perception of any negligent behavior or threatens the integrity of voter registration or engages in voter fraud, they will be immediately fired and turned over to the County elections office and law enforcement. The volunteer in the investigative video no longer serves on my campaign. I hope that this story encourages the news media and legal authorities to investigate all evidence of voter fraud and suppression as it has been a rampant problem for decades in South Texas. I have been a long-time advocate for voter integrity and will continue my fight to make our voices as citizens heard, fairly and honestly.
All I can ask for is patience from our supporters and a thorough investigation to secure the integrity of our elections.”
According to Veritas, Rodriguez said she would not work for President Donald J. Trump.
Rodriguez did not say directly that she was paid by former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s campaign or the campaign for Democratic Senate candidate Mary Jennings “MJ” Hegar, but she said she was working for both candidates and she does not work for free.
“Yeah, I’m getting the Biden vote out, but I mean I’m not going to do it for free–in other words, if they don’t pay me, I’m like excuse me?” she said.
“I’m against Trump. OK. I’m with Biden and I’m with Hegar. That’s the truth,” she said. “I’ve got three Democrats; three Republicans and the rest are Democrats.” Hegar is running against Republican Sen. John Cornyn III.
O’Keefe ending up confronting Mauro Garza over his connection to Rodriguez. Unsurprisingly, Garza did not seem interested in speaking with him and ended up driving off in his campaign bus.
Watch the awkward exchange below:
A Who’s Who of Legal Minds Arranged As Campaigns Prepare For Voter Fraud
Biden’s campaign told Fox News Monday that they have “created the largest election protection program in presidential campaign history.” It involves legal, communications and political strategies in anticipation of an ”unprecedented” election. Strategies include supporting election jurisdictions, voter education to raise awareness of the options they have and “aggressive responses to vote suppression activities, and robust programs for identifying and countering foreign interference and misinformation from foreign or domestic sources” reported Fox News.
A national team for “special litigation” was also developed to focus on state-by-state protection of voter access to polls and a “fair and accurate vote count. Leading the outreach program is Eric Holder, U.S. Attorney General under the Obama administration. The Biden campaign source said despite the legal team they are putting together with hundreds of lawyers, thousands of lawyers and volunteers are involved in the overall voter protection program.
Similarly, Republicans have formed a “Lawyers for Trump” coalition aimed at protecting the “integrity” of November’s elections. “Democrats are working to shred election integrity measures one state at a time and there’s no question they’ll continue their shenanigans from now to November and beyond,” said Trump campaign general counsel Matthew Morgan.
“Lawyers for Trump” has some heavy hitters from the GOP and “Trump allied-attorneys like former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, former Attorney General Ed Meese and the president’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani” according to Fox News. Their agenda is to “Protect the Vote” for fear that “Democrats are trying to use coronavirus and the courts to legalize ballot harvesting, implement a nationwide mail-in ballot system, and eliminate nearly every safeguard in our elections.”
It is no secret Democrats are preparing for battle in the event of a Trump re-election. Trump’s 2016 opponent Hillary Clinton has already lent her two cents to Biden. She told him not to concede an election loss under “any circumstance.”
Let’s hope the American voters pick our next president, not a battle of the wits amongst legal minds.
A WHOPPING 56% of Americans Say They are Better off Today (Mid-Pandemic) than Under Obama-Biden
A recent Gallup survey found that a whopping 56 percent of Americans say they are better off now under President Trump–in the middle of a pandemic–than they were four years ago when President Obama was in office.
During his presidential campaign in 1980, Ronald Reagan asked Americans, “Are you better off today than you were four years ago?” Since then, this question has served as a key standard that sitting presidents running for reelection have been held to.
Gallup’s most recent survey found a clear majority of registered voters (56%) saying they are better off now than they were four years ago, while 32% said they are worse off.
The Gallup Poll has just come out with the incredible finding that 56% of you say that you are better off today, during a pandemic, than you were four years ago (OBiden). Highest number on record! Pretty amazing!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 9, 2020
Gallup compared the 56 percent number to 2012, during the Obama-Biden Administration when just 45 percent of Americans could say they felt they were better off. In 2004, 47 percent of Americans said they were better off and in 1992, that number was at 38 percent.
President Trump responded to the news, writing on Twitter, “The Gallup Poll has just come out with the incredible finding that 56% of you say that you are better off today, during a pandemic, than you were four years ago (Biden). The highest number on record! Pretty amazing!”
