The voter fraud allegations by Republicans that have consumed the nation since the November 3rd presidential election have cast a dark shadow over that entire electoral system, and as Republican stand behind President Donald Trump’s call for an overhaul of the election system, many Democrats and detractors continue to believe that the claims of voter fraud are nothing more than a myth.
Texas Senator John Cornyn (R), who supports the president’s campaign team’s legal efforts to understand the extent of voter fraud being perpetrated, was recently involved in a bit of a Twitter tangle with former Houston Mayor Annise Parker, who tweeted that Sen. Cornyn should be ashamed of himself for “spreading the myth of voter fraud.”
“Shame on you, both for spreading the myth of voter fraud and for your shocking ignorance about Puerto Rico,” stated Parker.

Cornyn quickly responded to the former Democrat mayor, stating “I am not ashamed for wanting all legitimate votes to count, for all candidates on a ballot. Didn’t think that was controversial.”
Parker initially commented on Cornyn’s tweet about letting the national vote count run its course, and mentioned the “thousands of uncounted votes found a week after election day in Puerto Rico.”
It appears as if Parker’s accusation that Cornyn was spreading the voter fraud hoax in the U.S. and on Puerto Rico was debunked after both the Washington Post and the New York Times reported on the thousands of “unearthed” votes found on the island.
