True the Vote Signature Fraud in Ohio – Business Insider

November 7, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

A Tea Party group in Ohio known for lambasting supposed voter fraud in the state is coming under fire for allegedly forging signatures itself.

True the Vote tried to place members posing as poll observers in polling places in African-American communities but falsified signatures in its bid to do so, Ohio-based political blog Plunderbund reported Monday.

The Franklin County Board of Elections determined Monday the group had likely forged the forms, which used candidate signatures copied from another set of paperwork that had been filed in early October, Plunderbund wrote in a follow-up story.

The board rejected True the Vote’s forms, meaning the group wasn’t allowed in Franklin County polling places today.

Election board member Zachary Manifold told Plunderbund he was “amazed that a group that goes to such extreme lengths to claim voting fraud in Ohio would knowingly forge or misuse signatures to try to gain access to Franklin County polling locations.”

The Department of Justice announced last week it planned to monitor polling places in Franklin County.
