I heard about a group on titled “Vote Without Papers.” I searched Yahoo groups, thinking it must be a joke and that no one in their right mind would create a group with that name. Much to my surprise, I found that this group, indeed, exists.

On the
homepage, the group’s description says:

    “This group will share information about how to VOTE WITHOUT PAPERS so as to affect US elections for the benefit of Hispanics.

    YOU DO NOT NEED PAPERS TO VOTE IN THE UNITED STATES! If you vote, you can make a difference.

    Por La Raza todo. Fuera de La Raza nada.

    Let us take this country as our own. VOTE!”

I joined under the assumed name Rita Calabez, still not convinced that it wasn’t a hoax. I portrayed myself as someone who was sympathetic to the “plight” of illegal aliens in the U.S.

Only one member, aside from "Rita Calabez," appeared to be pro-illegal alien. Her name is
Marie Soto Lopez. This was Marie’s first post to the Yahoo group, Vote Without Papers:

    "marie.lopez69" wrote:

    The ID check is a joke. I am without papers. I was ask for drivers license. I said "What, do I need license to vote? What law is say I need drivers license to vote?" So they say we need two form of documents to show where you live. They say is good enough to show utility bill. So i showed them two utility bills and they issue as voter ID card. The card is sent to address shown on utility bill in about 1 week later. Then later I moved to another address in another county and use the same procedure. Just showed them two utility bills. Now I am register two places, and have vote in both places. Is not two vote is better than one?All we have to do is vote and eventually we will have everything we want.”

Her contempt for America and Americans became clearer with each subsequent post, as you can see here, here and here.

There was some discussion in the group that she was a fake, bent on pulling everyone’s legs. I don’t think so. Her profile is in Spanish and you can tell her posts are routed through online translators, resulting in the broken grammar which is so common when translating Spanish to English with a computer program.

Have fun reading Marie’s posts and the next time you think illegal aliens can’t vote in our elections, think again. Marie does….twice.
