This is more of an issue of principle than an issue that should arise often in connection with this office, but I will never, at any time, use powers of legal coercion in the service of the office. Cases like the Texas “vote fraud” convictions, where ordinary people are sitting in jail right now, are morally abhorrent. It is incredibly wrong to incarcerate someone for voting incorrectly. My office will never, ever seek criminal penalties against anyone for voting fraud, or for anything else. Voting is not worth going to jail over. In the incredibly unlikely event that someone forces our hand, we will seek the lightest penalties conceivably possible at all time. Voting is the opposite of coercion. This office should stand against coercion.
