The major media outlets essentially refuse to report on voter fraud, often promoting the idea that it’s a myth. However, recent convictions show that democrats have been increasing the efforts to cheat in elections over the past four years.
Four Los Angeles residents have pleaded guilty to organizing a voter fraud scheme in the city’s Skid Row neighborhood, paying homeless people with cigarettes and cash to obtain fake signatures on various voter documents.
The defendants “admitted their role in a scheme where money and cigarettes were offered to homeless people on Skid Row in exchange for false and forged signatures on ballot petitions and voter registration forms,” the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said in an announcement this week.
[The DA’s office added: Richard Howard (dob 1/12/56) and Louis Thomas Wise (dob 8/4/82) pleaded no contest Friday to one felony count each of subscribing a fictitious name, or the name of another to an initiative petition and registration of a fictitious person. Christopher Joseph Williams (dob 5/2/79) and Nickey Demelvin Huntley (dob 9/2/74) each pleaded no contest to one felony count of circulating an initiative or petition containing false, forged or fictitious names.
Howard was immediately sentenced to a suspended sentence of three years in state prison and three years of formal probation. A suspended sentence may be imposed if a defendant violates the terms of his/her probation.
Wise was sentenced to a suspended sentence of 16 months in state prison and three years of formal probation.
Williams and Huntley were sentenced to three years of formal probation.
In February, codefendant Norman Hall (dob 11/1/57) pleaded guilty to one felony count of circulating a petition with false, forged or fictitious names. He was immediately sentenced to one year in county jail, placed on formal probation for three years and ordered to complete 100 hours of community service.
Deputy District Attorney Marian Thompson of the Public Integrity Division is prosecuting the case.
The four remaining defendants face various charges including use of false names on a petition and voter fraud.
The defendants were charged with soliciting hundreds of false and/or forged signatures on state ballot petitions and voter registration forms by offering homeless people $1 and/or cigarettes for their participation.]
The admissions of guilt follow another participant in the scheme pleading guilty in February to taking part in the fraudulent activity.
The scheme specifically involved “soliciting hundreds of false and/or forged signatures on state ballot petitions and voter registration forms by offering homeless people $1 and/or cigarettes for their participation,” the district attorney’s office said.
The crimes took place over two election cycles — 2016 and 2018. Four other individuals implicated in the scheme “face various charges including use of false names on a petition and voter fraud,” according to a press release from the prosecutor’s office.
The guilty parties in the case have thus far received sentences ranging from jail time to suspended sentences to formal probation.
Many people argue that with the recent convictions and indictments, the 2018 election is in question. They also warn that mail in ballots are simply a ruse to ensure that more democrat cheating can take place, so that in areas that have been plagued by democrat leadership for decades, and have now become slums, will have no real way to change their political landscape.
