NYC Dems Charged With Multiple Felonies For Forging Signatures, Including Those Of Derek Jeter, Kate Moss, On Ballot Petitions
Democrats? : Cheating? : Hard to believe:
THE BRONX – 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.
But voter fraud is a myth, right?
