GOP Workers Sentenced to Jail for Voter Fraud
Two Republican voter registration workers were sentenced Wednesday to four months in jail after pleading guilty to voter fraud for forging signatures.
Edward Barquet, 27, of Stockton and his girlfriend, Michelle Corrall, 28, of Lodi, were paid $4 for each GOP voter they registered.
Three voters complained to San Joaquin County elections officials after receiving notice that they had been reregistered in September 2000. They said their signatures and dates of birth had been forged on the voter registration cards.
The two were fined $220 in San Joaquin County Superior Court and will serve five years’ probation after being released from jail.
