According to Rick Moran at American Thinker
The Public Interest Legal Foundation has alerted the Justice Department to a gambit by Texas Democrats to get non-citizens to vote.
The state party sent out a voter registration form asking non-citizens to sign up, with the citizenship box already checked “yes.”
This is an open invitation for voter fraud on a large scale, and the way the Democrats went about it defies belief:
The applications were pre-addressed to elections officials, which is likely what left many voters to believe they were receiving an official communication from the state.
But the return address was from the State Democratic Executive Committee, and listed an address in Austin that matches the state Democratic Party’s headquarters.
The letter is emblazoned with “Urgent! Your voter registration deadline is October 9.” It continues: “Your voter registration application is inside. Complete, sign and return it today!”
On the application, boxes affirming the applicant is both 18 and a U.S. citizen are already checked with an “X” in the Yes field.
The mailing also urges those who are unsure if they’re registered to “Mail it in.”
A person answering phones at the state party declined to connect The Washington Times with any officials there, insisting that a reporter email questions. That email went unanswered.
Sam Taylor, spokesman for Texas’s secretary of state, said they heard from people whose relatives were receiving mail despite having passed away 10 years ago or longer. One woman said her child, who’d been dead 19 years, got a mailing asking to register.
“It looks like a case of really bad information they are using to send out these mailers,” Mr. Taylor said.
He said some of the non-citizens who called wondered whether there had been some change that made them now legally able to vote despite not being citizens.
Mr. Taylor said there is a state law against encouraging someone to falsify a voter application, but it would be up to investigators to decide if pre-checking a box rose to that level.
Somebody should go to jail. That’s my opinion.
