Milwaukee man charged with election fraud


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A second person has been charged with election fraud for illegally trying to register people to vote in Milwaukee.

  The Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office filed felony charges Tuesday, alleging Adam Mucklin was a convicted felon ineligible to vote when he was registering voters.

  The 22-year-old Mucklin went through training to become a special registration deputy, which allows him to solicit and retain voter registration cards from others.

  The law does not allow convicted felons to hold such a position.

  Mucklin was charged with providing false information to an election official and intentionally violating an election duty.

  Another person was charged last week with submitting fake names on voter registration applications.
