Chesco GOP: Democrats voting twice

The Republican Committee of Chester County has filed a complaint with the county District Attorney alleging that at least seven Democrats have voted in both Chester County and in New Jersey in the same election.

From the release:
WEST CHESTER - A complaint was lodged today with the Chester County District Attorney's office after evidence was found that seven Democrats have been voting in the county and also in New Jersey in the same elections.

"Voting twice is a clear violation of the federal election laws and can't be tolerated," said Skip Brion, chairman of the Republican Committee of Chester County. "The evidence we have points to outright voter fraud."

Republican Solicitor Joel L. Frank, Esq. had a letter hand delivered to District Attorney Joseph Carroll.

The letter said, "I bring to your attention what appears to be illegal conduct on the part of seven registered Democrats who apparently, in addition to being registered and voting in various counties in New Jersey, have also registered and voted in Chester County in the same elections. As you will note, this conduct has been ongoing for quite some time for some and more recent for others."

The punishment for voting more than once in an election is a maximum $10,000 fine and up to five years in prison or both.

Frank has also forwarded documents to Chester County Voter Services.

"I ask that your office promptly investigate these apparently fraudulent and illegal activities and let me know your findings," Frank's letter of complaint said.
