Remember in 2009, when 5CD congressional candidate Feda Kidd Morton accused the State Board of Elections of committing election fraud to get Virgil Goode tossed out of office? Well, the SBE is teaching the former Fluvanna Republican Party chair a thing or two about election fraud: Morton has been arrested and charged with election fraud, Carlos Santos writes. She’s charged with making a false statement on an election form, a class 5 felony under § 24.2-1016. August 11 is listed as the date of the offense. According to The Hook‘s Lisa Provence, Morton certified that she’d witnessed people signing a petition that she had not actually witnessed. Next up is a preliminary hearing, in a month’s time.
Republicans are so desperate to prove that election fraud is a problem that they’re committing it themselves. Way to take one for the team, Feda!
