An advocate of President Donald Trump in Marple Town, Pennsylvania, has actually been charged with voting for the president under the name of his deceased mother, the Delaware County District Lawyer revealed Monday, ending up being the 3rd Republican to be prosecuted for voter scams in the battleground state.
Bruce Bartman, 70, supposedly registered his departed mom and mother-in-law to vote utilizing Pennsylvania’s online voter registration website, both as Republicans, and subsequently requested and returned an absentee tally on behalf of his late mom.
Bartman admitted to casting a ballot on behalf of his mom, the district lawyer’s office stated in a statement, and “explained that he cast a vote in the name of his departed mother to reelect President Donald Trump.”
” For all the conspiracy theorists out there, this case today does not represent widespread citizen fraud,” Delaware County D.A. Jack Stollsteimer said Monday, noting the case was an isolated event and the only instance of voter scams the county discovered after following up on “hundreds” of pointers.
Bartman’s arraignment follows a Republican guy in Forty Fort, Pennsylvania, who was charged in October for similarly completing an absentee ballot application on behalf of his deceased mother.
A registered Republican in Chester County, Pennsylvania, was likewise charged for casting a tally personally in the November election, and then going back to his ballot place with sunglasses on in an attempt to disguise himself and vote on behalf of his boy.
There is no proof of extensive citizen fraud in the November election.
The Trump project and allies like lawyer Sidney Powell have actually repeatedly made baseless allegations of widespread voter scams in the November election as part of an effort to overturn Biden’s success. The project and GOP’s claims have repeatedly been overruled in court due to a lack of evidence, including allegations of widespread “dead citizens” as in Bartman’s case. Though the Trump campaign has actually openly alleged citizen fraud in Pennsylvania, the campaign has hesitated from in fact making those claims in court, with Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani telling a federal judge in Pennsylvania that the campaign’s central legal difficulty in the state was “not a fraud case.” The Trump campaign filed a petition in the U.S. Supreme Court Sunday that challenges Pennsylvania’s mail-in voting guidelines and attempts to challenge the governmental election outcomes, however the campaign did not make any specific allegations or provide evidence of voter scams.
