Andrew Spieles, a student at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia and an employee of Harrisonburg Votes is sent off to prison for registering deceased voters in favor of the Democrats, in the 2016 presidential race.
It was in May that President Donald Trump signed an executive order to set up a commission to identify voter fraud.
“Some were in the names of deceased individuals while others bore incorrect middle names, birth dates, and social security numbers,” the spokesperson continued. “The registrar’s office learned that the individuals named in these forms had not, in fact, submitted the new voter registrations.”
A spokesperson for the U.S. attorney reported to local news, “In July 2016, Spieles’ job was to register as many voters as possible and report to Democratic campaign headquarters in Harrisonburg.”
“In August 2016, Spieles was directed to combine his registration numbers with those of another individual because their respective territories overlapped. After filling out a registration form for a voter,” the spokesperson continued, “Spieles entered the information into a computer system used by the Virginia Democratic Party to track information such as name, age, address, and political affiliation. Every Thursday an employee [or] volunteer hand-delivered the paper copies of the registration forms to the registrar’s office in Harrisonburg, “he added.
That discovery led the registrar’s office to unearth “multiple instances of similarly falsified forms when it reviewed additional registrations,” the U.S. attorney’s office spokesperson explained.
Spieles has plead guilty and has confessed to have stolen information from the Virginia Democratic Party’s “walk sheets,” to carry out his malicious actions.
