We covered this story as it was beginning in October of last year as Indiana State Police were investigation the Indiana Voter Registration Project for potential voter registration fraud.
Well now the investigation is over and 12 people have been officially charged and could face up to 2.5 years in prison:
FOX NEWS – Twelve employees of an Indiana group tied to former Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid and former President Bill Clinton were charged Friday for allegedly submitting fake or fraudulent voter registration applications before the 2016 presidential election.
The Indiana Voter Registration Project, an Indiana-based group focused on mobilizing and registering black voters, allegedly submitted an unknown number of falsified applications, according to a probable cause affidavit. Eleven canvassers temporarily employed by the group were charged by Marion County prosecutors, along with their supervisor Holiday Burke — with one count each of procuring or submitting voter registration applications known to be “false, fictitious, or fraudulent.”
If convicted, each faces up to two-and-a-half years in prison. The group as a whole is also charged, and could face a $10,000 fine.
President Trump for months has suggested there could have been widespread voter fraud in the last election — though to date, most public cases have involved voter registration fraud.
In Indiana, state police began investigating the group in August after a clerk in Hendricks County, near Indianapolis, flagged about a dozen registration forms with missing or suspicious information. The investigation expanded to 56 counties.
The Indiana Voter Registration Project is overseen by Patriot Majority USA, a group that is tied to the Democratic Party and has relationships with Reid and former President Clinton. Patriot Majority said it had collected about 45,000 voter registration applications before the November 2016 general election.
It says the Democrat group submitted an ‘unknown’ number of falsified applications. I think that means they submitted a lot of them, as this investigation was tied to 56 counties.
You know, I bet these people are loathe to know they could each go to jail for 2.5 years. But I bet what bothers them even more is that they weren’t even successful because Trump ended up winning! LOL!
