Vote Fraud Trial Begins For Obama And Clinton Staffers

Vote Fraud Trial Begins For Obama And Clinton StaffersThe trial is underway for a former Democratic official and a Board of Elections worker who are accused of being part of a plot that has raised questions over whether President Obama’s campaign — when he was a candidate in 2008 — submitted enough legitimate signatures to have legally qualified for the presidential primary ballot.

‘Petition fraud’

The two face charges of orchestrating an illegal scheme to fake the petitions that enabled then-candidates Obama, and Hillary Clinton, to qualify for the race in Indiana.

Former longtime St. Joseph County Democratic Party Chairman Butch Morgan Jr. faces multiple felony conspiracy counts to commit petition fraud, and former county Board of Elections worker Dustin Blythe is charged with nine felony forgery counts and one felony count of falsely making a petition of nomination. The proceedings began Monday in South Bend. Two former Board of Elections officials have already pleaded guilty to charges related to the scheme and could testify against Morgan and Blythe.


‘Forging the petitions’

Former board worker Beverly Shelton, who allegedly was assigned the task of forging the petitions for Hillary Clinton, pleaded guilty in March to charges of forgery and falsely making a petition. The board’s former Democratic head of voter registration, Pam Brunette, pleaded guilty in April to felony forgery, official misconduct, and falsifying a petition.

Under state law, presidential candidates need to qualify for the primary ballots with 500 signatures from each of the state’s nine congressional districts. Indiana election officials say that in St. Joseph County, which is the 2nd Congressional District, the Obama campaign qualified with 534 signatures; Clinton’s camp had 704.

Guy Attacks Girlfriend With Steak Sauce For Reading ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’

The sauciness of “Fifty Shades of Grey” — the titillating trilogy that millions of women around the world are reading this summer — turned literal late last month, when a 31-year-old British man, apparently upset that his girlfriend was one of them, assaulted her with a bottle of steak sauce.

According to authorities in Carlisle, U.K., Raymond Hodgson was so bothered that his girlfriend, Emma McCormick, was reading E.L. James’ “pornographic” and “distasteful” book, he drove to her house and squirted her in the face.


According to the Carlisle News & Star, the couple had been arguing and exchanging text messages before the sauce assault. McCormick “answered the door and the argument continued,” prosecutors said. “She went to close the door and [Hodgson] jammed his foot into the door, slapped her once in the face, and then squirted her with this bottle of sauce.”

Hodgson, who denies slapping McCormick, pleaded guilty to assault and was ordered to pay 185 pounds in fines, including 100 pounds to McCormick. The judge also imposed a six-week, 6 p.m. curfew for the convicted saucer.
