As Democrats and the mainstream media insist voter fraud isn’t real, arrests are starting to prove otherwise.
In Texas, one woman was arrested last week by the Texas Attorney General’s Office.
She didn’t get arrested on a few counts of voter fraud, either.
Monica Rene Mendez was charged with 26 counts of violating state election laws!
If one woman could amass 26 counts of voter fraud, think of how deep this runs through the Democrat party.
This is one woman. Just take a moment to think about how many Democrats actually get away with doing things like this.

Mendez was charged with three counts of illegal voting, eight counts of election fraud, eight counts of returning marked ballots without consent, and seven counts of unlawful voter assistance.
God Bless Texas for catching this felon!
Tyler Morning Telegraph has more on the story:
A South Texas woman was arrested by the Texas Attorney General’s Office Wednesday on 26 counts of violating state election laws.
Monica Rene Mendez, 36, of Port Lavaca, was charged with three counts of illegal voting, seven counts of unlawful voter assistance, eight counts of returning marked ballots without consent and eight counts of election fraud, according to jail records.
Further details, including the jurisdiction, timing or specific nature of the alleged violations, as well as the number of ballots potentially affected, remained unclear Thursday.
As of Thursday morning, Mendez remained in custody at the Victoria County jail, where she is being held on $1,000 bond.
Chief Deputy Will Franklin of the Victoria County Sheriff’s Office referred questions about the charges to the Texas Attorney General’s Office, which did not immediately respond to an interview request Thursday morning.
Victoria County Elections Administrator Margetta Hill said she was not aware of any violations that had occurred locally during this past November’s election or the May 1 elections this year. Local officials and the Attorney General’s office would typically communicate in the event of any election integrity issues, Hill said.
“They would notify me, and I would notify them if I was having a problem also,” Hill said.
Franklin said the Attorney General’s Office conducted an interview with Mendez at the Victoria County Sheriff’s Office, but said he did not know where the alleged election violations occurred.
“The reason they obtained (the warrant) here is more likely because she’s a resident here,” he said.
Several types of violations constitute illegal voting under Texas law, including voting by non-eligible voters, voting multiple times by the same person, impersonating another voter, using another person’s ballot or knowingly marking another person’s ballot without their consent.
Illegal voting is a second-degree felony punishable by two to 20 years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine, according to state law. Attempted illegal voting is a state jail felony punishable by 180 days to two years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine.
Voters who have physical disabilities or language barriers are eligible to receive assistance in Texas. Unlawful voter assistance includes aiding voters ineligible to receive assistance, filling out a voter’s ballot in a way other than the way the voter directs, suggesting how the voter should vote while helping fill out their ballot or providing help to a voter who has not requested assistance.
Unlawful voter assistance is punishable by up to a year in jail and up to a $4,000 fine.
Since 2005, the Texas Attorney General’s Office has successfully prosecuted 534 election fraud offenses against 155 people, according to its website. There are 510 pending offenses statewide against 43 people, along with 386 active election fraud investigations.
Texas has been cracking down hard on voter fraud since the election.
Attorney General Ken Paxton has said they will prosecute voter fraud every time they find it.
Thanks, @GregAbbott_TX! We will prosecute voter fraud every time we find it. Currently our office has over 500 cases waiting to be heard in court. Voter fraud is real. Texans deserve to know their vote is legally and securely counted. #ElectionIntegrity #Fraud https://t.co/ZhUh8lpHri

Paxton also said they have over 500 cases of voter fraud waiting to be heard in court.
The Center Square has more on Texas’s 500 pending voter fraud cases:
Ahead of special legislative session set to start July 8, during which Gov. Greg Abbott has made election reform a legislative priority, Attorney General Ken Paxton announced there are more than 500 election fraud cases pending in Texas courts.
“We will prosecute voter fraud every time we find it,” Paxton said over the weekend. “Currently, our office has over 500 cases waiting to be heard in court.”
“Voter fraud is real,” he said, and “Texans deserve to know their vote is legally and securely counted.”
His announcement was made after the latest individual was arrested on a voter fraud charge on June 23. Monica Mendez was arrested and booked into the Victoria County Jail after a Victoria County grand jury returned an indictment against her on multiple counts of election fraud. The Texas Secretary of State referred the case to Paxton’s office after allegations of illegal voting and other election code violations arose out of the 2018 Bloomington Water District election.
There are 510 pending offenses against 43 defendants currently pending prosecution and 386 active election fraud investigations, according to the AG’s website.
While not all arrests have been made public, the most noteworthy Paxton announced earlier this year was in January, after an alleged ballot harvester in Bexar County, Rachel Rodriguez, was arrested. Her arrest came shortly after Project Veritas published undercover video and audio of conversations with Rodriguez in which she is seen describing ballot harvesting operations in Bexar County she claims to have orchestrated for both Republican and Democratic candidates running in the 2020 election.
The AG’s Election Fraud Division reviewed dozens of hours of unedited, raw footage, which led to her arrest.
“In an uncharacteristic moment of honesty, Rodriguez acknowledged on video that what she was doing is illegal and that she could go to jail for it,” the AG’s office said.
Rodriguez was charged with election fraud, illegal voting, unlawfully assisting people voting by mail, and unlawfully possessing an official ballot. Each charge constitutes a felony under the Texas Election Code. If convicted, Rodriguez could face up to 20 years in prison.
“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. 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,” Paxton said in January. “The shocking and blatantly illegal action documented by Project Veritas demonstrates a form of election fraud my office continually investigates and prosecutes. I am fiercely committed to ensuring the voting process is secure and fair throughout the state, and my office is prepared to assist any Texas county in combating this insidious, un-American form of fraud.”
Earlier this year, Paxton’s office won two cases in the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. In May, the appeals court rejected a Texas Democratic Party lawsuit that tried to reinstate “pop-up” voting, or temporary rotating polling locations.
In March, the court ordered sanctions against Marc Elias and other attorneys at Perkins Coie, an international law firm providing counsel to the Democratic National Committee, after Paxton’s office alleged they submitted redundant and misleading supplemental filings in their attempt to re-implement straight-ticket voting in Texas. The court agreed and issued sanctions against Perkins Coie.
The AG’s Election Fraud Unit is a referral-based unit. It only responds to complaints it receives, and primarily to those that are first vetted by the Secretary of State’s Office. The AG’s office does not have resources to actively detect fraud, it states, but instead relies on members of the public and election officials to observe fraud and report fraud to the Secretary of State’s office.
Since 2005, the AG’s office has successfully prosecuted 534 election fraud offenses against 155 individuals.
Texas isn’t giving up-and Attorney General Ken Paxton is saying that we haven’t lost the war and we need to keep fighting against voter fraud.
Paxton has championed uncovering voter fraud, saying in a recent interview, “ if we don’t figure out the truth, we will get the same results again and not be able to trust our elections again.”
We have that interview with Paxton and Sebastian Gorka discussing election integrity.
You can watch it safely on Rumble below:
Will other states follow Texas and begin prosecuting felons for voter fraud?
Mendez’s case PROVES that there was voter fraud in the 2020 election.
And fraud vitiates EVERYTHING!
The mainstream media won’t be able to deny voter fraud’s existence much longer.
