The Kansas Secretary of State officially charged a “non-citizen” for voting illegally, according to a Thursday report from Talking Points Memo.
“The problem of non-citizens voting is a serious one, both in Kansas and nationally,” Kobach said in the news release. “Every time a non-citizen votes, it cancels out the vote of a United States citizen.”
A Kansas investigation revealed that at least 30 cases of non-citizens registering to vote existed from 2003 through 2013. The state was able to prove three cases in which the individual in question actually voted during a federal election.
Bebek signed a plea deal that includes a $5,000 fine and three years of “unsupervised” probation.
President Donald Trump repeatedly asserted that there was rampant voter fraud during the 2016 election, a claim quickly dispatched by Democrats as false.
Although there is no evidence that millions of votes were cast illegally, there were several pockets of very questionable irregularities, like in Florida’s Palm Beach County, where a sheriff’s candidate allegedly ordered and filled out absentee ballots for residents.
