VOTER FRAUD: 9 Iowans Face Felony Charges
Nine Iowans are facing felony charges for allegedly violating election laws in the last two years.
Secretary of State Matt Schultz announced the arrests Wednesday.
Eight Waterloo residents and a woman from Montrose are each accused of voting in elections even though they are felons whose voting rights hadn’t been restored.
Schultz has made fighting voter fraud a priority since he took office.
However, his office is being questioned by the State Auditor over possibly misspending up to $280,000 of federal money to pay for his fraud investigations.
