Where there is smoke there’s fire…
A woman in Fort Worth, Texas has been sentenced to 8 years in jail after being found guilty of voting illegally since 2004. Rosa Maria Ortega said that she didn’t understand the difference between “resident” and “citizen” when she cast her illegal votes for more than a decade.

The Mexican native believes that she is being made an example out of saying that it is not fair. Prosecutor Sam Jordan said, “This is a voter rights case. Does she consider voter rights important?

Tarrent County prosecutors say that she will likely be deported after serving her 8 years.
