The BRAD BLOG : Ohio Election Workers Sentenced to 18 Months for Rigging 2004 Presidential Recount

CLEVELAND (AP) – Two county election workers were sentenced Tuesday to 18 months in prison for rigging a recount of 2004 presidential election ballots so they could avoid a longer, detailed review.Jacqueline Maiden, 60, a Cuyahoga County election coordinator who was the board’s third-highest ranking employee, and ballot manager Kathleen Dreamer, 40, each were convicted of a felony count of negligent misconduct of an elections employee.

Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court Judge Peter Corrigan allowed the women to remain free on bail pending appeal, but indicated he thought there was a more widespread conspiracy among election officials.

“I can’t help but feel there’s more to this story,” Corrigan said.

This is just sad. These crooks should be behind bars.
