Shalom Lamm Charged with Vote Fraud in Bloomingburg Case

I’ve been watching the Bloombingburg voting saga play out for years (see this excellent VICE piece by Hella Winston).

And now comes news of what many suspected: Lamm and others have been charged in federal court with conspiracy to commit voter fraud to bring people in as residents of the town to elect officials would would be friendly to creating an ultra-orthodox Jewish community there.

The town had entered into a very onerous consent decree when the efforts to stop what they thought was voter fraud were attacked as racial discrimination. Now that the consent decree was potentially influenced by fraud, I bet the town tries to get it modified.
