Democrat Campaign Workers Charged With Fraud, Forgery
I’m not sure how this could possibly be the case, since voter fraud doesn’t exist. Just ask a Democrat, the party with the market cornered on voter fraud.
Three former campaign workers for Maria Del Carmen Arroyo (D-Bronx) were charged with forging nearly 100 signatures for her primary ballot petition.
These geniuses used names that would never arouse suspicion, such as Kate Moss, Derek Jeter, and Joe Buck.
Three former campaign workers for Bronx Councilwoman Maria Del Carmen Arroyo’s reelection bid were charged with forging nearly 100 signatures, including Derek Jeter’s and Kate Moss’, on the candidate’s primary ballot petitions, according to the Bronx District Attorney’s Office.
Elbin Lopez, 49, Betty Julien, 47, and Luis Vargas, 45, were charged multiple felony counts Wednesday including falsifying business records and forgery. The women were hired to gather signatures to get Arroyo’s name placed on the September 2013 Democratic primary election.
Other forged names included sports announcer Joe Buck and New York Giants defensive tackle Rocky Bernard, the DA’s Office said.
The petitions also included some fake addresses, including a Citibank branch and a drug rehabilitation program, prosecutors said.
It was only after accusations of fraud were filed by her opponent that Arroyo and her mother, Assemblywoman Carmen Arroyo, claimed they noticed the forgeries. The Daily News reports that over 2,700 of the 3,339 signatures filed by the Arroyo campaign were invalid.
Here is a sampling of their handiwork…

The trio’s voter fraud tactics could land them in prison for up to 7 years.
