Louisiana Politicians Indicted in Vote-buying Scheme

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?

  1. corruption is corruption. As Nancy Pelosi says, “no one is above the law”. Of course that doesn’t include the dem.

    1. I’ve made $84,000 so far this year working online and I’m a full time student. I’m using an online business opportunity I heard about and I’ve made such great money. MMn It’s really user friendly and I’m just so happy that I found out about it. The potential with this is endless.
      Here’s what I do…>>>>> http://www.EarnApp3.com

      1. This is a scam. There have been clowns posting this scam daily over the past few months. It is either a phishing scam or the person posting this false advertisement is the only one making money every time someone clicks on their link. The link at the end of their post changes every time this ad is posted. Most of the web addresses they post are foreign web addresses. Don’t fall for this scam.
        Every time I have asked these scammers to provide proof that their system is legitimate, they never respond.

  2. I sure do think the 2020 election was fraught with corruption! Biden didn’t have the chance of a snowball in hell to win that election. He rarely left his basement during the campaign. That was more than fine with his handlers – the less seen of bumbling Joe the better, and besides, they had the election plan for fraud well in place. No worries!😡

    1. I agree. Trump won the election in a landslide and the election must be overturned and all involved must be arrested.

  3. It was proven the left stole the election but their paid for judges would not even hear the case .said there was not enough evidence.bs

    1. There are 138 million registered voters in this country, President Trump got 80 million do the math. Penn. Had 200 thousand more votes than voters. Wis. Had 25 thousand votes from the same address. No one lived there. I dont think it was stolen.I KNOW IT WAS.

      1. As of August of 2021 “Wisconsin election officials have removed roughly 206,000 people from voter rolls in the state as part of routine list maintenance, including about 30,000 voters who were part of a high-profile conflict ahead of the 2020 presidential election.” If the Election Officials would Have been Doing there Jobs Correctly in the First Place this Should Have Happened Before the 2020 Election Not After!

  4. Fraud is fraud. Little cities to federal President elections. It’s all a crime. Hillary tried it in California with illegals voting but still lost. But democrats decided the only way to win is to rig the election with corrupt voting machines and paying democrat’s workers to destroy ballots for President Trump and copy millions of ballots for idiot Joe Biden. They have proven this in most state. The justice system and governors are so corrupt that it’s the people who will bring the traitors and punish them fast and swift. No long trials to lie. Everyone knows how Biden got in the White House and he wasn’t voted in. Time for Biden and his worthless administration to go. Liberals will be deported for being Unamerican and criminals. You betray America you have to leave. Movie stars will be charged for helping criminals destroy cities and people lives. Your money will be stripped from you and given to the people who were destroyed with your lies. If you think this stuff isn’t going to happen well you will be surprised. You betray God and his country. Revenge is his for you nonbelievers.

  5. The demonRATS have been corrupt since the 50’s and probably longer but I’m not that old. Of course the demonRATS stole the election and that was obvious by Nov. 5th when polling stations were taking so long to count votes. They had to know how many fraudulent votes they needed to count to make there choice win.

      1. It was Georgia! I live here and not ONE of those people have been charged of served a day in jail! All 4 of those women should be in prison along with Brian Kemp, Stacy Abrams and Brad R.
        To add insult to injury The Brian and Brad show continually were. On TV saying it was the safest most secure election ever! Even after the Video came to light! DONT BELIEVE YOUR LYING EYES !
        THE TRUTH IS WHAT THEY SAY IT IS! I’m personally sick of our one sided legal system!

  6. I BELIEVE THAT PRES TRUMP SHOULD HAVE WON…. IN OUR COUNTY… RURAL AREAS ARE MAJORITY REPUBLICAN… AND CITY AREA HAS ALWAYS BEEN DEMO COMMIE… HOWEVER… I ALWAYS CHATTED UP PEOPLE PRIOR TO THE ELECTION… NOT ONE PERDON THAT I TALKED TO WAS PRO BIDEN. FACT…

    UNDERSTAND… CURRENTLY… I HATE BOTH PARTIES… I JUST DESPISE THE DEMO COMMIES MORE

  7. As far as I’m concerned, voter fraud happened, and it is not even debatable. I also believe it changed the outcome of the election.

  8. Start with the the two biggest crooks in the Democratic Party Bill the pedophile and Hillary Clinton the from there we go after the squad and then the great trader Pelosi n her Husband and last but least can anyone look in Schumer eyes and not see the evil !

  9. I do believe it was stolen. There cannot be that many stupid roe that fell for Sleepy Joe’s act.

  10. Jerry Trabona and Kristian Hart ?
    From Louisiana ? Louisiana was red !
    This pair if this is in fact who they really are look more like crash dummies .
    Sacrificing themselves to protect the sacred Democrat herd !
    Imagine this on a large scale and a brain addled moron can get 81 million votes !
    LETD GO BRANDON ! U suck B

  11. The one and only answer to voter fraud is very Serious consequences !!!!!
    No do overs No Bail ! ENOUGH !
    Democrats must be relieved of duty !
    The DNC helped to organize and perpetrate this Treason !!!
    The Media was a conspirator !
    LETS GO BRANDON ! Joblowz

  12. Everybody knows the election of 2020 was stolen.Why can’t we the people remove this traitor in the whitehouse and put Trump back in to repair our country before this devil destroys it

  13. Yes, our 2020 Election was definitely Rigged, Stolen and with Fraudulent. That’s the only way Demorat’s can win at anything.
    Isn’t it obvious yet why they did it???? To make our America a Communist Country.
    Question ❓. Had our Beloved President Trump on his first day in office had open up our Border, cancel our Keystone Pipeline, and etc. The Demorat’s would have Impeached and Removed him at once on the first day. Now why have The People have to suffer because NO ONE with the backbone will file Impeachments and Court Marital’s in The People’s White House, Capitol and Pentagon????

  14. I forgot to add as well. Get All the Demorat’s out of The People’s White House, Capitol and Pentagon NOW, otherwise we will have no Country. Everyone of them should be Impeached, Court Marital and definitely held accountable for all the waste of our tax dollars, lies and cover-up’s. Everyone of them should be in Prison for the rest of their sorry lives and without benefit of Parole ever.

  15. Well it seems that another lie has reared its ugly head though I am not surprised to hear about this

  16. It’s common knowledge that the 2020 elections were tampered with, maybe not to the extent that it actually changed the results, but then, we’ll never know with all the shenanigans dems and their loyal minions were engaging in.
    Photo ID’s and NO on the spot voter registrations should be the law of the land, you have to have an ID to board a plane, what’s REALLY wrong with requiring photo IDs to vote?
    Tired of hearing the dems narrative and talking points…………

  17. There is no way that Slippery Biden got 80 million votes.Maybe he had a dream while asleep in his basement that he did, but by the time he woke up the ballots had already been changed to favor Biden.Remember, Joe Biden was not Elected, he was Selected.

  18. Excuse me Omar did the same think in Minnesota and she still sits in Congress!
    Will somebody please wake up the DOJ?

  19. What I think is THIS CRAP NEEDS to STOP! They should get 5 years on EVERY count. If you want it to stop we need to start making it VERY VERY EXPENSIVE and VERY VERY long prison sentences! As long as we keep letting these turd get away with it or just a little hand slap they will continue to do it! Do your job Congress and make laws that put people who take part in this PRISON for a long time! With HUGE fines!
