Former San Luis, Arizona, mayor Guillermina Fuentes, has pled guilty to ballot harvesting, confirming Republican suspicions of election fraud affecting the 2020 presidential election.
Fuentes’s guilty plea is one of the first major judicial cases of election fraud conducted during the 2020 presidential election.
Fuentes, who is a prominent Democrat in Arizona, ran a ballot harvesting scheme with an associate, Alma Juarez. Juarez pled guilty to running the ballot harvesting scheme back in March.
Using her status with voters, Fuentes, along with Juarez, would collect and fill out ballots and then turn them in. In some cases, it was even suspected that voters would be paid to hand over their ballots.
Arizona Central reported that “Although Fuentes was charged only with actions that appear on the videotape and involve just a handful of ballots, investigators believe the effort went much farther. Attorney General’s Office Investigator William Kluth wrote in one report that there was some evidence suggesting Fuentes actively canvassed San Luis neighborhoods and collected ballots, in some cases paying for them.”
Fuentes’s guilty plea adds more fuel to the fire of speculation that voter fraud schemes are much more common than Democrats would like the American public to believe.
