The Texas Democratic Party is under investigation. The gang who couldn’t shoot straight strikes again.
Their incompetence is really laughable.
The investigation was launched after the Dems were accused of sending out voter-registration applications to non-citizens with the citizenship box already checked “Yes.”
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said the issue is “is being investigated” and “there will be serious consequences” if confirmed.
“A complaint says the Texas Democratic Party asked noncitizens to register to vote, sending applications with citizenship box pre-checked. This is being investigated. If true there will be serious consequences,” he wrote in a tweet.
A non-profit group blew the whistle and in their documentation, they included a signed affidavit from David C. Kifuri Jr, who said his non-citizen relatives received the application form from the state Democratic Party.
“I know from previous work experience … that it is a crime to register to vote in Texas if you are a felon with an incomplete sentence or a non-U.S. citizen. I also understand that a non-U.S. citizen can face criminal and immigration jeopardy for misrepresenting citizenship status for the purpose of voter registration,” Kifuri stated.

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.
