Prominent Democrat Arrested In Shocking Mail-In Ballot Scheme

via Youtube

Craig Callaway, a former Atlantic City councilor, has been arrested for election fraud related to the misuse of absentee ballots in New Jersey.

He allegedly paid organizers to assist voters with completing absentee ballot applications, collected the ballots, and cast them without the voters’ authorization.

“Holding free and fair elections is a bedrock principle of our democracy. As alleged in the complaint, the defendant attempted to deprive New Jersey residents of a fair election by fraudulently procuring and casting ballots. Today’s charges reflect our office’s commitment to hold to account those who try to undermine the electoral process,” U.S. Attorney Philip R. Sellinger said.

Callaway could face up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

This is not his first run-in with the law, as he previously served time for bribery and was involved in a prostitution bribery scheme.

“Voter fraud at any level chips away at the faith people have in our system,” FBI Special Agent James E. Dennehy said.

“We’re unable as American citizens to hold our government accountable if our votes are compromised. The FBI and our law enforcement partners understand the gravity of protecting the process and will bring those criminals who break the law to justice.”

A similar case involving a Democratic city councilor in Lawrence, Massachusetts, was also reported.
