A Texas man was arrested on charges that he voted in the 2020 Democratic primary while on parole. He could face as much as 20 years in prison.
More than a year later, Rogers was arrested on charges that he voted in last year’s Democratic primary while on parole. Under Texas law, it is illegal for a felon to “knowingly” vote while still serving a sentence, including parole.
"Hervis Rogers was so intent on casting a ballot in last year’s presidential primary that he waited six hours to vote, catching the attention of a CNN news crew when he became the last person to do so at his Houston polling place. Rogers, now 62, debated leaving, he told CNN’s Ed Lavandera as he exited a polling center at Texas Southern University after midnight on March 4. “But I said to myself, ‘Nah. Don’t do that.’ It was set up for me to walk away, but I said, ‘No, I’m not going to do that."
More than a year later, Rogers was arrested on charges that he voted in last year’s Democratic primary while on parole. Doing so is a second-degree felony, punishable with a minimum of two years and a maximum of 20 years in prison. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who ordered the arrest, defended the charges -- Critics also questioned the timing of Rogers’s arrest last Wednesday, a day before the Texas Legislature convened for a special session to consider new voting restrictions that Democrats blocked in May."
Remember this face...This is the face that is behind the massive widespread voter fraud that stole the election from Trump...This big black buck and other thug blacks are the ones behind all of the voter fraud and finally something is being done about them....
This guy was so arrogant that he bragged about standing in line 6 hours to try to steal the election from the rightful winner....You would think these people would have the awareness to be more covert with their evil plans; but this guy didn't care....that is why these voting restrictions aren't strong enough and we need to do more...Yea, he may have had voter ID -- so obviously Voter D laws aren't enough.....maybe we should have made this guy take a literacy test as well -- he definitely doesn't look like the type of darkie who is educated enough to pass one. Say what you want to say about the Dems of yesterday, their poll taxes and other Jim Crow restrictions were pretty spot on.
