Multiple voter fraud indictments in Mississippi

Seven indicted on charges of illegal voter activity from Hattiesburg Mayoral Election:

 

A year-long investigation by the district attorney’s office into alleged voter irregularities in the 2013 Hattiesburg Mayoral Election has resulted in seven indictments by the Forrest County Grand Jury.  District Attorney Patricia Burchell issued a news release on Friday confirming that seven people have been indicted on misdemeanor charges, after two grand juries determined there was sufficient evidence of illegal voter activity.

 

The court ordered a re-do of the contested mayoral election, decided by a 37-vote margin, based on evidence of mishandled absentee ballots and illegal voting that included voter impersonation, voting by ineligible felons, and even “a 17-year-old voted absentee from the county jail.”
