“On the Holmes Front,” with Frank Holmes
Saying that the 2020 presidential election suffered from voter fraud can get you banned from social media, fired from your job, or even accused of supporting an “insurrection.”
But a new court case is proving that the liberals’ worst nightmare is coming true.
On Wednesday, police announced they had arrested a Texas woman for engaging in voter fraud on behalf of Joe Biden deep in the heart of Texas.

The state attorney general’s office arrested Raquel Rodriguez on four felonies after undercover investigators caught her red-handed admitting she had broken election law to help elect Biden.
James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released several videos of Rodriguez (who also goes by the first name “Rachel”) bragging about breaking the law — and about how she had politicians of both parties “in my pocket.”
Rodriguez tells an undercover journalist that some Republicans in the reddest state in the country paid her to throw the election for Joe Biden.
“My people are undercover, because some of them are Republicans, some of them are Democrats,” she can be heard explaining.”So, some of my Republicans are precinct chairs that cannot be known because they could get kicked out but they want to help the Bidens.”
She agrees to a client’s terms that she produce “$55,500 for 5,000 votes” for Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate MJ Hegar, who lost to John Cornyn, as well as Joe Biden. She later says she usually gets paid “between $5 and $8 per vote.”
She appears to engage in ballot harvesting — collecting ballots from people and turning them in at once — as well as giving a woman a shawl if she’ll vote for her preferred candidate and “correcting” a woman who didn’t vote for a Democrat…

All of which is of course illegal under Texas law.

More than once, Rodriguez admits what she’s doing is “against the law…that’s illegal. I could go to jail.”

And she admits that people are wrong to accuse President Donald Trump of lying about voter fraud. “Oh hell no, he’s not. It’s true,” she said.

On Wednesday, Texas officials slapped Rodriguez with charges of election fraud, illegal voting, unlawfully assisting people voting by mail, and unlawfully possessing an official ballot.
Each count is a felony under Texas state law. If convicted on all counts, Rodriguez could go to jail for 20 years.

Although critics accuse Project Veritas of selectively, deceptively editing its videos, the Texas AG’s office said its Election Fraud Division “reviewed dozens of hours of unedited, raw footage, which led to this arrest.”
“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,” said Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.
“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 Paxton, who is a Republican. “The shocking and blatantly illegal action documented by Project Veritas demonstrates a form of election fraud my office continually investigates and prosecutes.”
Rodriguez has briefly spoken out, saying that the group she leads called the “Love thy Neighbor Voting Squad” in San Antonio, has “registered over 22,500 new voters in the past year and a half.”
Rodriguez said she was the one investigating Project Veritas.
She said the minute Project Veritas claimed to need her help rigging the election on behalf of an unnamed client with lots of money, she “suspected something was wrong.”

But she claims she “chose to continue the conversation and ‘play along’ in order to discover the source and gather my own evidence that I could submit to legal authorities.”
She also tried to turn the table on O’Keefe’s undercover brigade by claiming the elderly woman in the video to have been her aunt. Their investigation is “a serious breach of privacy,” Rodriguez said.
Well, that’s the point.
Undercover investigations are intended to expose illegal activities that criminals want to keep secret.
But Texas authorities aren’t buying her story.
State AG Paxton said that he is “fiercely committed to ensuring the voting process is secure and fair throughout the state,” and that the state attorney general’s office would help any county in Texas in combating “this insidious, un-American form of fraud.”
