Another day, another report of vote fraud in the U.S. This time, a 62-year old Ventura, California man was sentenced for voter fraud in last year’s November election, officials said Thursday.
The man voted by absentee ballot in the Nov. 4 general election, then voted a second time by turning in an absentee ballot under the name of his recently deceased father-in-law, according to the Ventura County District Attorney's Office.
The man pleaded no contest to misdemeanor voter fraud. He was given three years' probation and ordered to pay a $1,000 fine.
Kudos to the Ventura County Clerk and Recorder’s Office and the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office for investigating and prosecuting this blatant violation of voter fraud laws.
