Reacting to a new report of voter fraud in Texas, outspoken actor James Woods called congressional Republicans “spineless” for not doing something about the issue when they had a majority in both chambers.
“Imagine, if you will, a time when the @GOP could hold the presidency and the Congress. Well, we did, of course, for the past two years,” the two-time Academy Award-winning actor tweeted.
“Sadly, our Congress was too spineless to stand by you, Mr. President. This could have been corrected by legislation.”
President Trump launched a commission to investigate voter fraud chaired by Vice President Mike Pence, but it was disbanded in January 2018.
On Monday, Trump commented on the Texas report.
“58,000 non-citizens voted in Texas, with 95,000 non-citizens registered to vote. These numbers are just the tip of the iceberg,” he wrote.
“All over the country, especially in California, voter fraud is rampant. Must be stopped. Strong voter ID!”
Last Friday, Texas Secretary of State Ken Paxton’s office announced it “discovered that about 95,000 individuals identified by the Department of Public Safety as non-U.S. citizens have a matching voter registration record in Texas, and roughly 58,000 of them have voted in one or more Texas elections.”
Paxton commented via Twitter: “Any illegal vote deprives Americans of their voice.”
They allegedly, according to the state attorney general, were paid to target older voters “in a scheme to generate a large number of mail ballots and then harvest those ballots for specific candidates in 2016.”
