I can't tell you how many times I have stood in line for something for what seems like forever only to realize that I had to run home and grab my wallet or some kind of missing paperwork. But this story definitely takes the cake.
The media ran a bunch of features on Super Tuesday Hervis Rogers, the last voter at a Houston polling place on Super Tuesday. Rogers had to wait seven hours in line to cast his ballot, something liberal pundits used to support their claims of voter suppression in Texas
"It's over with," Rogers proclaimed as he left the polling place. "It feels good."
There's just one problem, though. Hervis Rogers appears to be ineligible to vote in the State of Texas. Texas law bars Felons from voting until the state has “fully discharged the person’s sentence, including any term of incarceration, parole, or supervision, or completed a period of probation ordered by any court.”
Felons can regain their voting rights in Texas, but only after they have completed their sentences. That includes prison time, paying any fines, parole, probation, or supervised release.
Rogers has a criminal record and is not scheduled to be released from his parole until June 13, 2020. Therefore, it appears that he was ineligible to vote in the first place.
So instead of this story being used to shine a light on "voter suppression" the way the left wanted, it shows the extent to which people will go to cast illegal ballots. This man sat in line for seven hours, knowing full well he had a criminal record and had not completed his probation yet. And the County's Democrat Tax Assessor-Collector & Voter Registrar should have flagged his registration as being invalid. But instead, he was allowed to illegally cast a ballot...
And that's the biggest takeaway. Rogers is on parole for a felony he committed all the way back in 1995. And yet, when he showed up to this polling place, he had his voter registration card on him.
The real question is, how many other ineligible voters are there out there like Hervis Rogers, not just in Texas but around the country? And what are we going to do to make sure they do now skew the results of elections with their illegal votes?
