Remember that voting fraud that does not exist?
Well, two more politicians have been taken down
The former Chief of Police of Amite, LA, and a current city council member have been indicted for violating federal election laws.
Breaking the Law
Former Amite City Police Chief Jerry Trabona and Amite City Council Member Kristian Hart have found themselves in a bit of a sticky situation.
The complaint alleged that both were buying votes during the 2016 primary and general elections.
The report stated, “According to the indictment, Trabona, 73, of Amite City, and Hart, 49, of Amite City, conspired to and did unlawfully pay voters to cast their ballots for certain candidates during the 2016 Open Primary Election and the 2016 Open General Election in Tangipahoa Parish, Louisiana.
“The indictment alleges that, in furtherance of the scheme, the conspirators solicited and hired individuals to identify potential voters, transported those voters to the polls where they were provided with the names and candidate numbers of candidates, and paid the voters to cast their ballots for candidates.”
They both stand to serve five years for each count if they are found guilty.
Over and above these two indictments, two residents also pleaded guilty to charges.
The report stated, “Sidney Smith, 68, of Amite City, and Calvin Batiste, 64, of Independence.
“Smith and Batiste each pleaded guilty to conspiracy to buy votes during the 2016 election.”
I have long maintained that voter fraud at the local level is far more dangerous than it is at the federal level.
Point being, it would usually take tens of thousands of illegitimate votes to swing a national election, but local elections can sometimes be swung by only a handful of votes, with this case being a perfect example of that.
I don’t care how minor the corruption is, we must seek it out, punish those responsible, and make sure it does not happen again so we never have to live through the nightmare that was 2020 again.
Do you believe voter fraud changed the outcome of the 2020 election?
