Non-citizen Pleads Guilty in Kansas Voter Fraud Case

A noncitizen has pleaded guilty to voter fraud in Kansas, the state's secretary of state announced.

The Associated Press reported that Victor David Garcia Bebek, a noncitizen, pleaded guilty to three counts of voting unlawfully in 2012 and 2014 and faces up to three years of probation and a $5,000 fine. The complaint on the case obtained by AP, which was kept under wraps until Wednesday, identified six felony and misdemeanor counts.

Logan Churchwell, spokesman for the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), an Indiana-based election integrity group, said the case is noteworthy because some Democrats claim noncitizen voting does not occur.

Kansas is the only state where a secretary of state has prosecution power over election law violations, Churchwell noted.

"Kansas is the only state that vests prosecution power over election law violations with its secretary of state," Churchwell told the Washington Free Beacon. "DAs will not and have exhibited an unwillingness to pursue cases that end in $5,000 fines and unsupervised probation."

Churchwell said other states rely on individuals who commit voter fraud to accidentally out themselves.

$5K fine? That will never be paid.

3 years probation? What and rot on our dime here in the USA? Uh - NO!

Send him back (that would be a ONE-WAY ticket Mr./Ms. Government Official...I understand paperwork can get messed up - hence he read/heed ONE-WAY response.) to where ever he came from - PRONTO!

Stealing the vote of another should be considered theft.
