From Today's Northeast Times Re: Arrest of Election Board Workers

Joe De­Fe­lice, ex­ec­ut­ive dir­ect­or of the Re­pub­lic­an City Com­mit­tee, is ap­plaud­ing the ar­rests of three elec­tion in­spect­ors and an elec­tion judge for a vari­ety of elec­tion law vi­ol­a­tions in 2014, in­clud­ing adding votes to the total tally and not liv­ing in the di­vi­sion in which they claimed to be res­id­ents.
Re­pub­lic­an poll work­ers re­por­ted the in­frac­tions to city elec­tions com­mis­sion­er Al Schmidt, who for­war­ded them to the dis­trict at­tor­ney’s of­fice.
The polling place was at 1401 N. Han­cock St.
“Thank­fully, there were re­spons­ible poll work­ers at this poll who would not sit idly by as the fraud was com­mit­ted. However, what about the oth­er 1,600-plus di­vi­sions throughout the city? In many of them, Re­pub­lic­an poll watch­ers and court-ap­poin­ted elec­tion board work­ers have no­tori­ously been dis­al­lowed entry, with the so-called ‘judges of elec­tions’ blatantly dis­reg­ard­ing court or­ders,” De­Fe­lice said. “It is un­for­tu­nate that in the Cradle of Liberty that we still can’t ex­pect fair and hon­est elec­tions. Thank­fully, City Com­mis­sion­er Al Schmidt was on top of this.”
