Texas finds a fraudulent voter. But wait for it ....

A report in the New York Times details the case of a 37-year-old woman who moved with her family from Mexico as an infant and voted illegally in two elections in Texas, seemingly at least in part from confusion about her status.

Prosecutors have made her a poster child for vote fraud and she's received an eight-year federal prison sentence that will likely be followed by deportation, leaving four legal citizen children behind.

The story is worth reading for the kicker.

Rosa Maria Ortega, a legal resident who managed to register to vote and participate in the American democratic system despite lack of citizenship, voted Republican, including for the state attorney general responsible for prosecuting her.
