冒充公民投票选总统 州抓到实证 她投了3次票

一名38岁的墨西哥籍女子,盗窃一位美国公民的身分取得护照,并且在三次总统大选中投票,她在13日(周四)对“冒充选民”(voter impersonation)和“非法投票”(ineligible voting)两项控罪认罪,被判处十年监禁和1万元罚款,服刑期满后将被递解出境。

德州检察长帕克斯顿(Ken Paxton)13日指出,一位居住在德州的美国公民,不久前向国务院申请护照,但被国务院告知已经用她的名字发出了一本仍然有效的护照。那位公民向官方投诉以后,执法单位开始调查这件疑案。调查人员后来发现38岁的墨西哥公民罗菈.加尔萨(Laura Janeth Garza),窃取了这名美国公民的身分文件,在哈瑞斯县以安姬.萨摩拉(Angie Yadira Zamora)的名字做了选民登记,并曾经在2004年、2012年和2016年的总统大选中投票。加尔萨并且冒用萨摩拉的身分,向国务院申请到一本美国护照。

加尔萨被重判十年以及1万元罚金的消息公布以后,帕克斯顿以书面声明的方式宣告,检察长办公室把“选举诚信”(election integrity)列为执法的重点之一,以确保德州的每项选举投票都是自由与公平的,将加尔萨逮捕并判处重刑,是为了警惕有意效尤者切莫以身试法。德州州长艾伯特(Greg Abbot)不久前才表示,希望强化法规对选举舞弊者加重惩罚。

A Mexican citizen on Thursday pleaded guilty to illegally voting in the 2016 presidential election, the Houston Chronicle reported.

Laura Janeth Garza, 38, pleaded guilty to the charges of voter impersonation and ineligible voting, both of which are felonies, according to the attorney general’s office. Garza was sentenced to 10 years in jail and ordered to pay a $10,000 fine. She will be deported after serving her sentence.

According to a joint investigation by Texas authorities, Garza stole identification documents of a U.S. citizen and registered to vote in Harris County, which is in the southeastern part of the state. Authorities said Garza used the alias “Angie Yadira Zamora” to cast ballots in 2004, 2012, and 2016.

Law enforcement discovered Garza’s scheme after a U.S. citizen attempted to obtain a passport but discovered Garza had already obtained one with the citizen’s identity, said Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.

“Election integrity is a top priority for my office, and arrestees and convictions like this clearly demonstrate our commitment to ensuring that Texas elections remain free and fair,” said Paxton.

Garza’s voter fraud comes on the heels of an initiative by Texas Gov. Greg Abbot totoughen penalties for voter fraud.
