Texas woman caught in Project Veritas election-fraud sting faces criminal charges: Report

Project Veritas made headlines this week when it published an undercover recording that purported to show Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s acknowledging that his company’s crackdown on political speech is not limited to President Donald Trump’s account.

The conservative outlet founded by James O’Keefe is also in the news in connection to the arrest of a Texas woman caught in a prior sting regarding voter fraud.

“It’s against the law”

According to reports, San Antonio resident Raquel Rodriguez is facing multiple felony counts in an alleged ballot-harvesting scheme.

She was captured on video by Project Veritas in October providing a detailed breakdown of her apparent role in the illicit operation, but is now attempting to backtrack from the comments she previously made.

She is now facing up to 20 years behind bars on counts including election fraud, illegal voting, unlawfully assisting people voting by mail, and unlawfully possessing an official ballot.

After being released on a $60,000 bond on Thursday, however, her defense attorney issued a statement describing the charges against her as inappropriate.

According to the San Antonio Express-News, former Bexar County District Attorney Nicholas LaHood also denounced the behavior of prosecutors, insisting that they should only “walk a warrant when there’s a clear and present danger to a citizen or a complainant or alleged victim,” which is not a factor in this case.

“There’s no election going on,” he added. “The election’s two months over and there’s not another one for another 10 months.”

“In order to discover the source”

Rodriguez is also facing a defamation lawsuit from Republican Judge Renee Yanta, whom the suspect described as “in [her] pocket” in the undercover recording.

For her part, however, Rodriguez is now saying that the entire conversation was a big lie and denied being paid by anyone to commit election fraud.

“I immediately suspected something was wrong with this conversation,” she said, according to the Express-News. “I 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.”

The investigation is ongoing, but Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton cited the case as a refutation of those who “continue to claim that there’s no such thing as election fraud,” Breitbart noted.

  4. Many republicans best move is rolling over and peeing in the air while dimocrats continue to shred the constitution. No one is charged with sedition/treason and held accountable for their actions, so the antics continue. Looks like a two card Monte game in plain sight.

    1. It’s unfair

      Our PRESIDENT is being Impeached and these Rats are running free!
      Pelosi is scared 😨 of what our PRESIDENT is capable off. OBama go home and play with your wife! We don’t need you.

      1. AGREE. I HOPE PRESIDENT RUNS THEM RAGGED …
        DON’T KNOW HOW BUT I HOPE HE KEEPS THEM BUSY
        TRYING TO GET OUT OF THEIR CRAP… WANT TO SEE
        ALL OF THEM IN ____!

  5. I guess she is the token lowest hanging fruit. The big corruption is swept under the rug. Even so,I hope they lock her up and lose the key !

  6. District Attorney Nicholas LaHood denounced the behavior of prosecutors, insisting that they should only “walk a warrant when there’s a clear and present danger to a citizen or a complainant or alleged victim,” which is not a factor in this case.
    I LOVE the lefty logic…that’s like saying, if someone robbed a bank four months ago, you shouldn’t “walk a warrant” unless banks are currently being robbed, otherwise it’s not a factor and the disenfranchised voters from four months ago are no longer victims until another election takes place. That sounds stupid, because it is!

  7. Perhaps the Grand Old Party has reached it end with gutless Republicans that did nothing about the voting procedures and also not backing the Good President Trump. If a new party of conservative values be developed that we could overcome all the evil that has been done for power. Lord Jesus we ask you for your blessing on developing a better Party, Amen.

  8. What next?

    Oh, yes, everything going under under the rug. The establishing is in for another 4 yrs. or longer.

    Certainly, we need a new party. We had the man, now we need a new party and a new man.
    I just turn 90 yrs. of age. I vote for Goldwater

  9. Then do an IN DEPTH investigation and hook her up to the box, so she tells the truth Then trace it back to it’s origin, probably Demoncrats. Hang em all, especially Obummer, Clinton, Pisslosi, Shifty, Sleepy Joe, Schummer, Camel Toe
    And the rest of the Dumbocrats who were cheating.
