From Mad World News: Bridgeport Connecticut state representative, Christina Ayala, was arrested on 19 counts of voter fraud. They included eight counts of fraudulent voting, ten counts of primary or enrollment violations, and one count of tampering with or fabricating physical evidence.
The arrest warrant alleges that Ayala voted in multiple Bridgeport Democratic Town Committee elections, a municipal primary election, and a state primary election in districts she didn’t live in. The warrant also claims she provided fabricated address information when applying for public campaign finance grants.
The warrant was originally sought after by the Office of the Chief State’s Attorney. The State’s Elections Enforcement Commission (SEEC) recommended that Ayala and her mother Santa Ayala, Democratic Registrar of Voters, be prosecuted for election fraud almost a year ago.
Despite the fact SEEC has accused Santa Ayala of helping her daughter manipulate elections, no charges have been filed against her yet. She was nominated for another term as registrar by Bridgeport Democratic leaders and will appear on the ballot in November.
Shortly after winning the 2012 Democratic primary, Ayala was arrested and fined $350 for a hit-and-run accident. Some time later, she was involved in a domestic violence case for fighting with her boyfriend. Charges were dropped after she completed counseling.
Fraudulent voting is a felony punishable by not less than one year or more than two years in prison and a fine of $300 to $500 per count. Primary or enrollment violations and tampering with or fabricating physical evidence are class D felonies carrying a maximum prison sentence of up to five years per count.
After Ayala’s arrest for the current charges, she was released and has to reappear in court on October 7.
Ayala, 31, lost the Democratic primary for the 128th House District in August. Her term ends at the end of 2014.
After the 2012 election, it seemed all the left wanted to laugh at the right for any mention of possible voter fraud, but Ayala just proved it’s not impossible. Ironically, she is a Democrat. Read more from Mad World News
