Democrats and their media allies would have you believe that there is virtually no such thing as voter fraud in U.S. elections and that illegal immigrants definitely aren’t committing voter fraud, no matter how much evidence to the contrary is presented.
Yet another case can be added to the docket of truth about voter fraud as Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach recently announced that he had obtained a conviction in a case charging an illegal immigrant with voting in three separate elections, according to The Wichita Eagle.
A Peruvian immigrant in Wichita has pleaded guilty, in a plea bargain, to three misdemeanor counts of voting without being qualified, having voted in a 2012 special election, the 2012 general election and the 2014 general election.
The plea deal helped Victor David Garcia Bebek avoid felony charges and will require him to pay a $5,000 fine and serve up to three years of unsupervised probation.
“It’s important to note this is just the tip of the iceberg,” said Kobach. “For this one prosecution, there may be hundreds of additional cases where we haven’t discovered the individual or we’re unable to prosecute because the statute of limitations has run (out).”
Kansas toughened up its voting laws in 2015 and the secretary of state was granted prosecutorial authority to go after instances of voter fraud. The plea deal with Bebek represents the eighth conviction for such crimes that Kobach has obtained.
The Kansas City Star reported that Bebek’s crimes were discovered after he became a naturalized U.S. citizen in early 2017 and attempted to register to vote in Sedgwick County.
“This gentleman did so, and then when the Sedgwick County election office went back to the office to enter his information, they found that he had been on the voter rolls since 2011,” explained Kobach.
Of course liberals and Democrats in Kansas have opposed the tougher voter fraud laws and the authority granted to Kobach, and have dismissed this particular case as a one-off incident and not at all indicative of a wider problem.
“I’m not at all convinced that finding one non-citizen to prosecute after a two-year search justifies giving the secretary of state what is unprecedented authority held by no other secretary of state in the nation,” declared Democrat state Rep. John Carmichael, who has filed legislation in the state to strip Kobach of the extraordinary authority and roll back the voter fraud laws.
But despite the naysayers, Kobach maintained that the law was working as intended:
“No matter how many cases we prosecute, the political left will always whine that there’s not enough cases to justify protecting our elections in this way. That’s absurd.”
“The problem of non-citizens voting is a serious one, both in Kansas and nationally,” Kobach said in a news release, according to The Daily Caller. “Every time a non-citizen votes, it cancels out the vote of a United States citizen.”
Kobach was a big supporter of President Donald Trump’s candidacy and has advised him on issues related to illegal immigration and voter fraud.
