Voter Fraud Probe In California Turns Into Voter Intimidation Boondoggle [View all]

“What began as an investigation of alleged voter fraud quickly evolved into an investigation of potential voter intimidation,” a spokesman said in a statement emailed to TPM.

Ironically, the Secretary of State's Office was being forced to look into acts of alleged voter intimidation performed in service of its very own probe.

While Lopey declined to identify the state agency involved in the initial voter fraud probe, telling TPM “they asked us to not even mention their name,” the Secretary of State’s Office confirmed its investigators were on the ground after “initial questions” were raised by the county registrar.

A spokesman for the Secretary of State’s Office acknowledged that on “rare occasions,” local law enforcement will accompany state investigators, who are by law prohibited from carrying weapons, for security reasons. The spokesman also fired back at the sheriff for overzealousness, which he said was construed as efforts to intimidate voters."
