A state criminal agency is investigating what appears to be 25 to 30 fraudulent voter-registration applications, including from five dead people, filed with the Columbiana County Board of Elections by the Ohio Organizing Collaborative….
It was clearly fraudulent and forged when you have five people who died 10 years ago,” Booth said. “The forms were riddled with errors and all tied to this group. You can tell the same person filled out some of the same forms and forged signatures. There are wrong dates of births and wrong addresses on others. It became a pattern.”
There also were two registration forms from the same person, but the signatures were completely different, he said….
In a prepared statement, Laurie Couch, spokeswoman for the Youngstown-based OOC, wrote: “Unfortunately, it has come to our attention that a number of voter registration cards filed in Columbiana County appear to have been fabricated. The individuals responsible are no longer employed by the OOC and their supervisor has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation. We are conducting a thorough internal investigation into the incident and working closely with the Columbiana County Sheriff’s Office and the board of elections to fully support their investigation. In fewer than 24 hours, we have provided every piece of documentation requested by the sheriff’s office.”
