Elections fraud task force files first charges


Milwaukee (WKOW) -- from WI Dept of Justice:  Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen announced Tuesday that the recently-established Elections Fraud Task Force has brought its first charge.

  Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm has filed a criminal complaint against Ms. Endalyn Adams charging her with Falsely Procuring Voter Registration, a felony.

  Ms. Adams served as a Special Registration Deputy (SRD) from about July 1, 2008 until about August 15, 2008.

  Although trained and deputized as an SRD by the City of Milwaukee, Adams was paid to register voters by the Community Voters Project, a special interest group operating under the auspices of the Fund for the Public Interest.

  Ms. Adams is charged with submitting 45 forms, about twenty-seven or 60% of which contained information alleged to be false.

  At least nineteen of Endalyn Adams' voter forms listed persons that do not appear to exist.

  Nineteen addresses on Adams' voter registration forms were determined by police investigators to be nonexistent.

  Twenty-two of the driver license numbers submitted on these forms were also fraudulent.
