Controversy Remains in Voter Fraud Investigations

After spending nearly $150,000 over 18 months to uncover voter fraud in the state, Secretary of State Matt Schultz has succeeded only in obtaining charges in 16 cases. Five have been dismissed and five ended in guilty pleas. No cases have gone to trial. Schultz says it's proof voter fraud exists and taxpayers want him to do something about it. Advocates for ballot access and Schultz critics say so few cases show voter misconduct is statistically insignificant and is usually the result of a misunderstanding rather than fraud.
