Democrats have been convicted of breaking federal election laws.
It’s insane what they were trying to get away with.
Democrats have just been jailed for this massive scheme to buy votes.
Former Democratic Amite City, Louisiana Police Chief Jerry Trabona and City Councilman Kristian “Kris” Hart have been sentenced to one year in prison Wednesday for breaking federal election laws.
“According to court documents and evidence presented at trial, Jerry Trabona, 73, the former Chief of Police in Amite City, and Kristian “Kris” Hart, 50, a former Amite City councilmember, agreed with each other and others to pay or offer to pay voters residing in Tangipahoa Parish, Louisiana, for voting during the 2016 Open Primary Election and the 2016 Open General Election, contests in which Trabona and Hart were candidates,” the DOJ press release stated.
The Heritage Foundation alleged that Trabona and Hart provided sample ballots with names and candidate numbers to vote buyers to ensure that voters they paid voted for the correct candidates.
“Trabona and Hart’s vote buying scheme included the solicitation and hiring of individuals responsible for identifying potential voters, the transportation of those voters to the polls, and payment and offer of payment to the voters for voting. In the 2016 election, co-conspirator Sidney Smith, 69, of Amite City, paid voters with money provided by Trabona and Hart,” the DOJ press release continued.
The Heritage Foundation further alleged that the vote buyers were paid up to $20 dollars for every vote.
“In an effort to cover his tracks and conceal the scheme, Trabona had the vote buyers sign contracts stating they would not ‘make any overture of any kind to any voter or other person of financial award or benefit in exchange for a vote.’” The Heritage Foundation wrote.
They aren’t the only Democrats who have recently been convicted for committing voter fraud.
In October a former Democratic congressman was sentenced to more than two years in jail for committing election fraud intended to help Democrat candidates in the 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 Pennsylvania elections.
Former Rep. Michael “Ozzie” Myers pleaded guilty to conspiracy to deprive voters of civil rights, bribery, obstruction of justice, falsification of voting records, conspiring to illegally vote in a federal election, and orchestrating schemes to fraudulently stuff the ballot boxes.
“Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy. If even one vote has been illegally cast or if the integrity of just one election official is compromised, it diminishes faith in process,” said U.S. Attorney Jacqueline C. Romero. “This defendant used his position, knowledge of the process, and connections to fix elections for his preferred candidates, which demonstrates a truly flagrant disregard for the laws which govern our elections. He will now spend 30 months in prison as penalty for his crimes.”
Despite the current problems with the voting system, Democrats are pushing policies that would make voter fraud even easier and which would completely undermine American elections.
