DA: Two PA Democrats Charged with Voter Fraud



Two Democratic officials in a western Pennsylvania township have been charged with voter fraud for allegedly soliciting absentee votes from elderly residents who weren't legally eligible to cast such ballots.
 
Fayette County District Attorney Jack Heneks announced the charges Monday against 62-year-old William Geary and 58-year-old Thomas Keefer, both Bullskin Township supervisors.
 
Heneks says the grand jury found the men visited the mostly elderly voters' homes to help them complete the ballots despite knowing they voters would be available to vote in person on election day.
 
Keefer lost the May 2011 Democratic primary to David Butler, but defeated Butler in the general election that November by nine votes after waging a write-in campaign. Keefer got 741 votes compared to 732 for Butler.
 
Keefer's defense attorney says he's innocent. Geary hasn’t commented on the allegations.
