Justice of the Peace Tomas Ramirez is accused of ballot harvesting at assisted living centers in the 2018 primary election. He’s a justice of the peace who was arrested with three others who face 150 charges of voter fraud.

Medina County Justice of the Peace Tomas Ramirez was arrested on Feb. 11 and is charged on one count of organized election fraud, one count of “assisting voter voting ballot by mail,” and 17 counts of unlawful possession of a ballot or ballot envelope, KABB reports.

He was arrested with Leonor Rivas Garza, Eva Ann Martinez, and Mary Balderrama. All four were indicted by a Bandera Grand Jury on Feb. 9.

Garza, Martinez, and Balderrama were each charged with organized election fraud. They also face multiple charges of illegal voting, unlawful possession of a ballot or ballot envelope, election fraud, fraudulent use of an absentee ballot by mail, tampering with a government record, and purportedly acting as an agent.

According to the Texas attorney general’s office, the case against Ramirez and the others involves allegations of vote harvesting at assisted living centers in Medina County in the 2018 Medina County Primary Election. Ramirez was elected as a justice of the peace in 2018 and was suspended from his position after his arrest.

In a statement, Ramirez said he was “stunned” by the allegations and denied all charges against him.

Execute people who commit voter fraud and very soon the issue will disappear.

Wait! There isn’t any Voter Fraud in America. Just ask any Democrat or RINO. There is massive Voter Fraud in America and both Republicans and Democrats do it. It needs to stop and simplest way to ensure our elections are on the up and up, People need to vote in person, people need to show ID, and Ballots need to be paper. If there is any question about the results there needs to be a Hand count of only ballots actually cast by a voter, none of this adjudication and I’ll make a new ballot for you stuff. If you’re not smart enough to properly cast a ballot, you’re probably not smart enough to be voting. Then there is the Old Folks Home issue. If you’re in a home for mental issues you don’t vote. That’s just common sense!
