He was a media hero. Hervis Rogers became a MSM and leftist darling when he stood in line for six hours waiting to vote. He was the last person to vote at his polling location at Texas Southern University — perhaps the last man in the entire state to cast a ballot at all. His vote was cast at around 1 a.m. Unfortunately for him, he was arrested for illegally voting.

“It is insane, but it’s worth it,” Rogers said at the time while he waited to vote. “I mean, I wouldn’t feel right if I didn’t vote. I feel like it’s— I voice my opinion, but it don’t feel right if I don’t vote. So I said, ‘I’m going to take a stand and vote. It might make a difference.’”

Unfortunately for Hervis Rogers, he was still on parole. Rogers was arrested in 1995 and sentenced to 25 years for burglary and intent to commit theft. Your Erie reports:

 A Houston man who received widespread attention after standing six hours in line to cast a ballot in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary was in jail Friday on charges that it was illegal for him to vote at all because he was on parole.

Hervis Rogers became an overnight face of Texas’ battle over voting access when he emerged from a polling center at a historically Black college around 1:30 a.m. He was among Houston voters on Super Tuesday who waited more than an hour — and some for several hours — in mostly minority, Democratic neighborhoods. Lines in mostly white, Republican neighborhoods were shorter.

“The way it was set up, it was like it was set up for me to walk away,” Rogers told reporters in comments carried by multiple news outlets, including The Associated Press.

He was arrested this week on two counts of illegal voting, a second-degree felony that carries a possible sentence of two to 20 years in prison. His bail was set at $100,000.

The rare arrest on illegal voting allegations comes as Texas Republicans begin a second attempt at passing many of the same restrictive voting measures blocked by Democrats during a dramatic late-night walkout in May. Texas is the biggest state where Republicans have vowed to make voting changes since Donald Trump’s false claims that fraud cost him the 2020 election.

Courts records show Rogers is being prosecuted by the office of Republican Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who has zealously pursued election fraud cases and last year took a failed attempt to overturn President Joe Biden’s victory to the U.S. Supreme Court. His spokesman did not immediately respond to a message about Roger’s indictment.

Democrats love to tell us that no one votes illegally, but Rogers is a very public example that they are lying. This is just one of many examples of the reason we need stricter voting laws. After all, the vote means nothing if it’s not legitimate.

Democrats dismiss any possibility of voter fraud in the 2020 election, claiming that there’s no evidence of widespread issues. But what would they call an election that ended in a judge’s finding that 78% of mail-in ballots submitted were fraudulent? We really don’t know because you won’t hear them talk about what happened in Aberdeen, Mississippi.

Donald Trump may have handily won the state, but evidence of voter fraud efforts can be found in the runoff election for Ward 1 alderman seat in Aberdeen. WCBI reports:

In the sixty-four-page order, Judge Jeff Weill not only calls for a new election but also finds evidence of fraud and criminal activity, in how absentee ballots were handled, how votes were counted, and the actions by some at the polling place.

In his ruling, the judge said that sixty-six of eighty-four absentee ballots cast in the June runoff were not valid and should never have been counted. Nicholas Holliday was declared the winner by a 37 vote margin. Robert Devaull challenged the results in court.

Judge Weill found many irregularities with absentee ballots. He issued a bench warrant for notary Dallas Jones, who notarized absentee ballots. During a hearing, Jones admitted violating notary duties.

“When you have an absentee ballot, there’s an envelope, you vote, fold the ballot, put it in an envelope, lick the flap, sign across the flap, then notary signs your election certificate, she testified that she didn’t sign in front of anybody, didn’t see anybody sign it, she just notarized it, just stamped them,” says Lydia Quarles, an attorney for Devaull.

If all of this sounds familiar, it’s because President Donald Trump and other Republicans, whistleblowers, and witnesses all raised similar concerns about the 2020 election. These concerns were mocked by the media, silenced by social media companies, and refused by courts without good cause.

Jones was arrested for voter fraud and two others were ordered to pay fines in connection with this. And, of course, a new election is scheduled. Justice prevailed here. But how many other similar operations have been conducted and ignored?
