It seems over in Michigan, a couple Democratic Party leaders got it in their head that the best way for their candidates to win in the 2010 elections was to try to “split” their political opponent’s votes by registering “sham” Tea Party candidates on ballots across the state. As many as 23 elections are in question, and the two are facing at least 15 charges.
The issue is that these two fraudulently filed campaign paperwork on behalf of individuals who were not running for office. The fraud was revealed when some of the “candidates” were sent notices about missing campaign paperwork after the election.
