FBI Busts Men Trading Cigarettes to Homeless for Fraudulent Votes
By Def Con News – 8/1/2020
Hillary Clinton blew over a billion dollars on the 2016 election and still lost. She’s clearly not as smart as she thinks she is because there’s an easier and cheaper way to steal an election and all it takes is a carton of menthol cigarettes. The FBI announced it has busted 4 men in the Los Angeles area who traded cigarettes to homeless people in exchange for fraudulent signatures on ballot petitions and for bogus voter registrations. It’s certainly a fragile republic we have when all it takes to subvert it is some tactically distributed Kools.
The Los Angeles District Attorney announced this thing that most liberal media outlets are ignoring because it destroys their “no voter fraud” narrative:
Four men have admitted their role in a scheme where money and cigarettes were offered to homeless people on Skid Row in exchange for false and forged signatures on ballot petitions and voter registration forms, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced today.
Why is “Skid Row” capitalized? Are they talking about the hair-metal band or has bum town gotten official recognition as a neighborhood in Los Angeles? For the record, most of LA is now Skid Row with homeless camps nearly everywhere.
In any case, the FBI busted these guys, but LA certainly didn’t throw the book at them:
Richard Howard (dob 1/12/56) and Louis Thomas Wise (dob 8/4/82) pleaded no contest Friday to one felony count each of subscribing a fictitious name, or the name of another to an initiative petition and registration of a fictitious person. Christopher Joseph Williams (dob 5/2/79) and Nickey Demelvin Huntley (dob 9/2/74) each pleaded no contest to one felony count of circulating an initiative or petition containing false, forged or fictitious names.
Howard was immediately sentenced to a suspended sentence of three years in state prison and three years of formal probation. A suspended sentence may be imposed if a defendant violates the terms of his/her probation.
Wise was sentenced to a suspended sentence of 16 months in state prison and three years of formal probation.
That’ll teach them not to interfere with an election. Or not. Russian trolls indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller face stiffer penalties for putting ads on social media.
The defendants were charged with soliciting hundreds of false and/or forged signatures on state ballot petitions and voter registration forms by offering homeless people $1 and/or cigarettes for their participation.
The indictment indicates the crimes occurred during the 2016 and 2018 election cycles.
Oh hey, that was the midterm election in which many LA-area long-held red seats flipped blue, including the one naked bong-hitter Katie Hill briefly occupied. I wonder if there is a connection.
Also, if anyone thinks this was limited to 4 people doing this, they are fooling themselves or democrats who don’t want to admit the reality of voter fraud.
Nothing in the LA DA’s release makes any mention of the political party these 4 men were trying to fraudulently assist, but is there anyone who thinks these were Republican operatives?
