12 former Brooks County officials were indicted for voter fraud. The suspects are accused of illegally helping people vote by absentee ballot.
State officials launched an investigation after an unusually high number of absentee ballots were cast in the July 2010 primary election. "As a result of their grand jury findings 12 individuals were indicted in that particular matter and we will be trying that case in a court of judicial law instead of a court of public opinion so that will be pending this next year," said District Attorney Joe Mulholland.
The defendants include some workers in the voter registrar's office and some school board members.
Since WALB is playing "Name That Party", I think it's safe to assume that these fine, upstanding citizens are Democrats.
Sometimes, to me the death penalty seems to be the only answer to those who intentionally corrupt the voting process. I know it wouldn't fly, but damn I bet it would put a stop to this.
Doug, you need to run this story and others like it in October, 2012. Just remind those that think they will get away with cheating the vote system will be caught and punished.
