Texas: “DA under pressure to probe more voter fraud cases”

The Monitor:

A Houston attorney filed a criminal complaint last week accusing a candidate in the upcoming McAllen municipal election of voting illegally in Mission, and a few days later, he published a video on social media accusing the Hidalgo County District Attorney of being selective in prosecuting these cases.

Attorney Jared Najvar filed the complaint against Tania Ramirez with the Mission Police Department March 1 after news surfaced that she voted at least three different times in 2018 Mission elections — this despite swearing under oath in her District 4 candidacy application that she has been living continuously in McAllen since early 2017.

“Voting where you know you don’t reside and you’re not eligible to vote is a second-degree felony under Texas law,” Najvar said in a video he posted to his law firm’s Facebook page on Tuesday.

The allegations against Ramirez are of special interest to Najvar for two reasons — he’s representing a group of individuals accused of committing voter fraud in the 2017 Edinburg Municipal Election; and because of Ramirez’s ties to DA Ricardo Rodriguez.
