Lawyer for Mexican Woman Sentenced to 8 Years For Repeated Fraudulent Voting Blames, Get This, Donald Trump

Yes, so I imagined she would.

The original article:

A lawyer for a Mexican national sentenced to eight years in prison for voter fraud in Texas said that President Donald Trump's widely debunked claims of election rigging was "the 800-pound gorilla" in the jury box.

Rosa Maria Ortega, 37, was convicted in Fort Worth this week on two felony counts of illegal voting over allegations that she improperly cast a ballot five times between 2005 and 2014.

Her attorney, Clark Birdsall, said Friday that Ortega was a permanent resident who was brought to the U.S. as a baby and mistakenly thought she was eligible to vote. He said she voted Republican, including for Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, whose office helped prosecute her.

1, that's bullshit to try to soften the jury (Travis county voted for Trump Correction: No it didn't; see below), 2, it's utterly immaterial, and 3, it's such a huge pile of bullshit I just want to mention that again.

BTW, don't worry, I'm getting to the Daily Progressive Journ0List Conniption Story.

Correction: A former resident of Travis County says that Travis County is one of the bluest in Texas, and voted for Hillary.

#FakeNews on me!!!

I don't know where I got that. I think I must have parsed two sentences together and come up with a third sentence that only existed in my own mind.
