CNN’s ‘Hero’ Voter Is a Felon

Posted on | July 9, 2021 | Comments Off on CNN’s ‘Hero’ Voter Is a Felon

On “Super Tuesday” last year, CNN celebrated a Houston voter, Hervis Rogers, who stood in line for hours to vote in the Democratic primary:

“I figured like it was my duty to vote. I wanted to get my vote in to voice my opinion. And I wasn’t going to let nothing stop me. So I waited it out,” Hervis Rogers told CNN’s Ed Lavandera early Wednesday morning after casting his ballot at a polling center located at Texas Southern University, a historically black college in Houston.
Asked how long he had waited for to vote, Rogers said: “About six hours. A little bit over six hours.”
Rogers was among scores of voters who experienced long lines at some polling centers in Texas, where the state has shut down hundreds of polling sites in the last decade, contributing to the long lines at some of the remaining locations.

Notice that long lines at polling places are a crucial part of the liberal media’s “voter suppression” narrative, insinuating that this is some sinister conspiracy by Republican racists. Not even CNN, however, bothered to explain why those evil Texas racists would be “suppressing” votes in a Democratic primary, but CNN’s audience wouldn’t recognize sound logic if they ever saw it, which they seldom do. At any rate, what about this Hervis Rogers, who was so proud to do his “duty” by voting for Democrats? Have you got your shocked face ready?

Hervis Rogers is a convicted felon, who was on probation at the time he voted for Democrats last year — twice, once in the primary and then again in November — and Rogers was arrested this week for illegally voting, which is also a felony in Texas. Now, ask yourself this question: If convicted felons are prohibited from voting, then how was it that Hervis Rogers was on the list of registered voters in Houston?

If convicted felons were permitted to vote illegally in Houston, what about Atlanta? Milwaukee? Phoenix? Philadelphia? The point here, see, is that making sure election laws are enforced is a job of local officials, but because Democrats control all the election offices in major cities, we have no idea how many people are voting illegally in those cities, because Democrats have no interest in actually enforcing election laws.
