    Officials found guilty in Obama, Clinton ballot petition fraud


    A jury in South Bend, Indiana has found that fraud put President Obama and Hillary Clinton on the presidential primary ballot in Indiana in the 2008 election. Two Democratic political operatives were convicted Thursday night in the illegal scheme after only three hours of deliberations. They were found guilty on all counts.
    Former longtime St. Joseph County Democratic party Chairman Butch Morgan Jr. was found guilty of felony conspiracy counts to commit petition fraud and forgery, and former county Board of Elections worker Dustin Blythe was found guilty of felony forgery counts and falsely making a petition, after being accused of faking petitions that enabled Obama, then an Illinois Senator, to get on the presidential primary ballot for his first run for the White House.
    Morgan was accused of being the mastermind behind the plot.
    According to testimony from two former Board of Election officials who pled guilty, Morgan ordered Democratic officials and workers to fake the names and signatures that Obama and Clinton needed to qualify for the presidential race. Blythe, then a Board of Elections employee and Democratic Party volunteer, was accused of forging multiple pages of the Obama petitions.

    pilo, I've yet to read where this verdict has ever been changed. If this doesn't fall under the catagory of voter fraud, then what does it fall under?

      Specifically, forgery and fraud. No voter fraud. There was no evidence of voting using someone else's name.

      If they were guilty, then the verdict was correct. But no voter fraud took place.

      It's a slippery slope when the best reading skills that you acquired were acquired in home school. Did your parents ever attend high school?
