As President Trump endlessly tweets of voter fraud in the 2020 election, it appears officials have finally found a case of a dead person voting.
Bruce Bartman has been charged with unlawful voting and perjury over the allegations that he pretended to be his dead mother and cast a ballot in her name for President Donald Trump in Pennsylvania.
From Business Insider:
Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer announced the charges in a press release Monday. Bartman was arraigned Friday and released on $100,000 bail, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. If convicted on all charges, the 70-year-old Bartman could spend up to 19 years in prison.
“This is the only known case of a ‘dead person’ voting in our county, conspiracy theories notwithstanding,” Stollsteimer said in a statement. “Further, the prompt prosecution of this case shows that law enforcement will continue to uphold our election laws whenever presented with actual evidence of fraud and that we will continue to investigate every allegation that that comes our way.”
Turns out Trump was right about fraud in PA, but not in the way he hoped it would turn out.
