More fraud

Every time I read the newspaper here, I read of some new fraud or corruption scandal. It’s like these people think they’ll never get caught.

This time it’s an election official. Ironically, a 40 year superintendent of election for Essex County. This person,  who had previously been commended for sparking a far-reaching election fraud probe, is charged with giving paid days off to employees for working on campaigns. This happened between 2005-2008. The official had employees keep a log of those days, and then covered it up by ordering someone to destroy or change the records.

The other election scandal includes 10 defendents accused of election fraud from a 2007 campaign for fraudulent absentee ballots.
