Tip hotline for POSSIBLE voter fraud prompts Hispanic politician to cry voter suppression

Powered by Topple

As more and more Americans begin to worry that our election system is rife with vote fraud, one county in Texas set up a telephone hotline for voters to report possible cases of voter fraud.

But as soon as the announcement was made an activist Hispanic politician immediately claimed the hotline was a move to suppress their vote.

Officials in Tarrant County, Texas have been investigating a vote fraud case in the area and it’s caused some voters to worry that their votes are not secure, the Star-Telegram recently reported.

So, in an effort to put an end to vote fraud, a hotline was set up. Voters in the area can now call 817-893-8502 to report possible cases of fraud so that authorities can more easily investigate the allegations.

Naturally, as soon as the hotline was announced a left-wing Hispanic politician immediately began insisting that this was an effort to take away Hispanics’ right to vote.

This is “a systematic and deliberate attempt to suppress votes in the Latino community, specifically attacking the elderly,” state Rep. Ramon Romero, D-Fort Worth, told the paper.

Romeo did not fully explain how individual voters calling in possible examples of voter fraud would eliminate the vote of the “Latino community” nor did he say how it would specifically target elderly voters.

But even a member of the Tarrant County Democrat Party noted that the hotline is not a partisan issue.

“This is not a Republican or Democratic issue,” Steve Maxwell, a former Tarrant County Democratic Party chairman, told the Star-Telegram. “Every single one of us has a duty to make sure voter fraud isn’t taking place.”

“There’s a real question of whether fraud is going on,” Maxwell added. “If there is, I’m going to be the first to help weed it out.”

But vote fraud has become a major theme this election season as GOP nominee Donald Trump has repeatedly focused on Democrat vote fraud.

Donald Trump, Jr., also recently spoke about the massive problem in an appearance on Fox News.

“They’re admitting to breaking the law. High-level people committing fraud,” the GOP nominee’s son said.

“Where’s the outrage on that?” Trump, Jr., asked, citing video that alleged Democrats have been rigging elections for 50 years. “Where’s the outrage? I don’t see it.”

Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani has also been seen raising the issue of vote fraud.

“I’ve found very few situations where Republicans cheat. They don’t control the inner cities the way Democrats do. Maybe if Republicans controlled the inner cities, they’d do as much cheating as Democrats,” Giuliani explained in a recent appearance on CNN.

“I’m sorry, dead people generally vote for Democrats rather than Republicans,” he added.
