(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – Liberals really don’t like law and order. It’s obvious in almost everything that they do.
Back on March 4th, 2020, the liberal media gushed over 62-year-old Hervis Rogers who stood in line and waited six hours to cast his vote in the 2020 primaries in Texas.
The only problem: Rogers was not legally eligible to vote due to the fact that he was on parole. Oops.
Democrats would prefer we didn’t focus on such things as voter eligibility and election laws. It makes winning so much easier for them. Actually, it makes winning possible. Without breaking laws, Democrats would have an awfully tough time winning any elections at all.
When the story featuring Rogers dropped, the liberal media fawned over him and his dedication to stand in line and wait six hours to vote after having worked all day. They also used it as an opportunity to smear Republicans and white people.
They and Rogers insinuated that the long lines and wait times were planned by Republicans to make minority voters get discouraged and walk away. They claim that lines in white, suburban areas were much shorter while lines in urban areas were too long.
Apparently, they don’t quite grasp the concept that more people live in urban areas rather than suburban and rural areas.
Houston Public Media reported on March 4, 2020 that Rogers “gained national attention through his tenacity at a local polling place, refusing to leave even after others might have: Hervis Rogers was the last man to vote at his Texas Southern University polling place early Wednesday morning, and possibly the last person to cast a ballot in the State of Texas when he did so around 1 a.m.”
The article goes on to applaud Rogers for working two jobs and still standing in line for six hours to vote.
Rogers said the wait was “insane” but that he “wouldn’t feel right” had he not waited and cast his vote.
“I feel like it’s— I voice my opinion, but it don’t feel right if I don’t vote. So I said, ‘I’m going to take a stand and vote. It might make a difference.’”
After already trying two other packed locations, Rogers ended up at Texas Southern University, a historically black college, and said “something came over him” and he decided just to stick it out and vote.
In the end, it turns out Rogers should have turned around and went home. He wasn’t allowed to vote and he knew it. He was still on parole after having been arrested in 1995 and sentenced to 25 years in prison for burglary and intent to commit theft.
As usual, however, liberals love making heroes out of convicts.
According to a report by Your Erie, Rogers has been arrested for illegal voting and was put in jail last Friday.
Last week, he was arrested on two counts of illegal voting, a second-degree felony that carries a possible sentence of 2 to 20 years in prison. His bail was set at $100,000.
Naturally, leftists had a meltdown over Rogers’ arrest and attacked Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton for having the audacity to uphold the law.
Paxton defended the decision, saying, “I prosecute voter fraud everywhere we find it!”
Hervis is a felon rightly barred from voting under TX law. This liberal NPR article even says so, but buries it: “Rogers voted before his parole was scheduled to end, he was likely ineligible to cast a ballot on Election Day.”

And rightfully so. If you aren’t eligible to vote, don’t go vote. It’s a crime and one that should be prosecuted.
