“Justices to Hear Civil Rights Challenge in Ballot Prosecution”


The U.S. Supreme Court agreed to take up the case of a former Democratic county commissioner from New York State who was acquitted of forging absentee ballots during a 2009 primary election.

Edward G. McDonough says the special prosecutor falsified evidence during the pre-trial investigation, grand jury proceedings, and at trial in an attempt to convict him of dozens of state law felony crimes related to the forged absentee ballots.

But the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit found McDonough didn’t bring his civil rights case fast enough.
