Secretary Of State Opens Investigation Into Voter Registration By Former CSUF Illegal Alien Student Body President Pedro Ramirez
By: Guest Authors
Fresno, CA â€” September 21, 2011 â€” Self-described citizenâ€™s advocate Neil Oâ€™Brien and 2012 Novato city council member candidate Jerome Ghigliotti say the Secretary of State is investigating their complaints and letters about a fraudulent voter registration card for former CSUF Student Body President Pedro Ramirez. Last year Ramirez admitted to being in the country illegally. It is a federal offense and a felony for an illegal alien to register to vote.
Oâ€™Brien says he received a phone call yesterday from Agent Thomas Quiroz confirming the Secretary of Stateâ€™s receipt of Oâ€™Brienâ€™s complaint. Oâ€™Brien says that Quiroz informed him that an investigation is now open, but that further information cannot be provided unless and until charges are filed.
Oâ€™Brien says his official Election Fraud complaint submitted that can be downloaded at the SOS website(http://www.sos.ca.gov/elections/fraud-complaints/pdfs/english-voter-fraud-complaint-form.pdf) contained a copy of the police report for Ramirezâ€™s January 9th single-car 5:00 A.M. collision. (Mr. Ramirez and his attorney admitted that Ramirez did not have a legal driverâ€™s license.) The information in the police report matched a voter registration card in Tulare County (Reg Number 10K 812329). As an illegal alien, Ramirez became an advocate and poster child for the DREAM ACT.
Oâ€™Brien operates the website www.therealpedro.com, which is dedicated to investigating the former illegal alien ASI student body president, the DREAM ACT controversy, and other related issues at CSU Fresno.
â€œI feel relieved that the government is finally going to do something about this,â€ Says Oâ€™Brien. â€œI was beginning to think that the government was protecting Ramirez from paying the consequences of his crimes.â€
