Court Docs: TX Democrats Accused of Using Cocaine to Buy Votes

Breitbart TX

MCALLEN, Texas — A developing federal investigation has brought up allegations that a Hidalgo County Commissioner paid for votes with bags of cocaine while other politicians paid for votes also with cash, cigarettes, marijuana and beer.

Court records obtained by Breitbart Texas from the arrest of two women accused of buying votes show that during the democratic primaries in 2012, a campaign manager for a Hidalgo County Commissioner who said that during the campaign, he bought $50 worth of cocaine, commonly known as an 8-ball and split it up in order to give it to the two women so they could use it to entice voters.

Earlier this week Belinda Solis and Veronica Salazar went before U.S. Magistrate Judge Peter Ormsby who formally charged them with vote buying and set their bond at $10,000.

The two women were part of a large year and a half long FBI investigation into election corruption in Hidalgo County.

The investigation began in January 2013 when agents met with a campaign manager for a Hidalgo County Commissioner, who told the agents that he bought cocaine so his campaign workers could give it to the voters in exchange for their votes. The court records do not identify the commissioner by name; however they state that he ran during the 2012 primaries. The women were paid campaign workers, also known as politiqueras, who targeted low income areas and elderly individuals enticing them to vote for a particular candidate.

  1. And the GOP elites are selling amnesty for donations from the Chamber of Commerce.

    The GOP elites are just as corrupt as any Democrat.

  2. What’s the difference between that and buying votes with EBT cards, welfare, WIC, Loan Forgiveness, “Research” investment, Agricultural subsidies, TARP, Amnesty, “Free” contraception, “interest free” money, “Education” grants, “Free” abortions, and every other extra-Constitutional abuse that’s been going on for the past hundred years?

  3. The counties in the lower Rio Grand Valley were the

    key to Lyndon Johnson’s 1948 Senate race “victory”

    over TX Governor Coke Stevenson. Senior Texas

    Democrat leaders then and for decades following

    said it was a defining instance of brazen election

    fraud not seen before or since.

  4. $50 for an 8-ball? I highly doubt that. I realize that down close to the border where supply might actually exceed demand, that drugs are substantially cheaper than in the rest of the U.S., but not that cheap! More likely it was $50 for a gram. An ⑧,which is slang for 1/8 oz, is 3 1/2 grams… Or so I’ve read!!!

  5. Pretty darn sad when stuff like this isn’t even shocking anymore. Just same ol’ same ol’ in the day of a politician.

    No morals and no shame. Just parasites mindlessly living off a host until they kill it.

  6. If they want my vote, it’ll cost em 10g of opiated blond hash. Same as I used to get in the Senate.

    Oh, shit! I din’t mean to write that!

  7. $50 worth of cocaine, commonly known as an 8-ball

    Hahaha! I wanna move there. A McMansion must cost only $5000.

  8. Yeah, the Rio Grande valley is completely corrupt. A banana republic w/o the bananas, so no one in Texas is surprised.

  9. BTW, just assuming the county commish bought coke for $50/8-ball, that means he bought directly from a smuggler/dealer who buys in kilo and larger quantities and cut him a deal. It’s even scarier that a government official is in bed with that kind of narco-terrorists.
