Dem officials plead guilty for involvement in Louisiana vote-buying scheme

Democrats and their mainstream media allies have worked hard to undermine anyone who claims that U.S. elections are anything less than completely secure and safe, even though the party sang a much different tune after the 2016 presidential election results came in.

Regardless, yet another example of Democrat-led voter fraud hit the headlines this week as two officials in Louisiana “leaded guilty to criminally violating federal election laws in a vote-buying case.” The case stemmed from their alleged actions in both the primary and general elections of 2016.

The DOJ’s statement revealed the extent of the vote-buying operation that the two officials took part in.

“According to court documents, Jerry Trabona, 72, the former Chief of Police in Amite City, and Kristian ‘Kris’ Hart, 49, a current Amite City Councilmember, pleaded guilty to conspiring to pay and offering to pay voters residing in Tangipahoa Parish, Louisiana, for voting in the 2016 open primary election and the 2016 open general election,” the statement read.

“The Department of Justice is committed to ensuring that illegal voting, including vote buying, has no place in our nation’s electoral system,” said Assistant Attorney General Kenneth A. Polite, Jr. of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division.

“We must have fair elections, free from the taint of corruption, to ensure a fully functional government,” stated U.S. Attorney Duane A. Evans for the Eastern District of Louisiana. “Safeguarding the voting process is of paramount importance to our office and the Department of Justice.”

The two former Dem officials will face a sentencing hearing on Nov. 1. For their crimes, each individual could face up to five years in prison per charge.

Only time will tell if the judge presiding over the case decides to make an example of their actions.
