Bribing Homeless for Signatures
“Four more men were sentenced after admitting to their involvement in a large-scale scheme to bribe homeless people on Skid Row in exchange for forged signatures on ballot petitions and voter registration forms, prosecutors said Wednesday,” KTLA reported.
“The group allegedly gave homeless people $1 each and cigarettes in exchange for forgery. They amassed hundreds of false signatures to help initiatives qualify in the 2016 and 2018 election cycles, the DA’s office said,” the news channel added.
Richard Howard, 64, Louis Thomas Wise, 37, Christopher Joseph Williams, 41, and Nickey Demelvin Huntley, 45, pleaded no contest to various charges. Subscribing a fictitious name and felony counts of circulating an initiative or petition containing false or forged names were among the charges, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
Four men have not been sentenced yet and authorities are still trying to locate one of them.
The group of men, who have not been tied to a particular organization yet, were able to get hundreds of false or forged signatures on state ballot petitions by homeless people in Los Angeles’s Skid row.
This occurred from 2016 to 2018, where they would offer $1 and cigarettes to homeless in return for their signatures or identities.
Democrats Stunt to Increase Voter Fraud
As Democrats continue to stunt for vote-by-mail measures, many Americans were already concerned about the amount of voter happening, but with the new agenda, it could get very bad.
In Georgia, almost 70 percent of voters are concerned about voter fraud and believe it is a problem, according to a recent Monmouth poll.
The poll asked voters: “Would you say that voter fraud – that is ballots being cast by people who are not eligible to vote or who vote multiple times – is a major problem, minor problem, or not really a problem in Georgia?”
The overwhelming majority of people agreed it was a significant problem.
As voter fraud continues to increase, it is vital that election integrity is maintained as the November presidential election looms closer.
