A tiny Catskills resort town is playing host to a federal probe over voter fraud accusations — even as locals head to the polls next week, The NY Post reports. Residents of Fleischmanns — a century-old “Borscht Belt” village located at the foot of the Belleayre ski resort — claim that a pair of deep-pocketed property moguls have recruited seasonal renters to stuff the ballot box so they can get favorable treatment for their development plans.
Following repeated voter fraud disputes in Delaware County during the past two years, the local sheriff once again is investigating 76 voter registration cards — a big number given the small size of the expected tally — that were submitted during the past month, sources said. The voter cards in question — on which registrants listed local motels and seasonal vacation homes as their permanent residences — are being challenged at the county board of elections by Fleischmanns resident Todd Pascarella, who is running for a town trustee seat in next week’s election.
“I don’t know where these people really live,” Pascarella told The Post.
I hate that “these people” reference.
the way its written it doesn’t sound malicious. but what does sound malicious is people who don’t live somewhere voting in a local election. soo…
Uh oh. I had nothing to do with this.
Boirei Meoirei Hooaish coming ….
