Los Angeles County prosecutors Tuesday announced the charges, which include circulating a petition with false names, voter fraud and registering a nonexistent person during election cycles in 2016 and this year.
They paid individuals to sign the names, said Officer Deon Joseph, the senior lead officer on skid row, told The Times in September. Thats an assault on our democracy.

Any penalties will be based upon party affiliation.
Why bother? It’s like election fraud in the USSR. You still get a communist.
Wow, what an amazing isolated event.
But somehow importing Millions of Criminal Aliens and allowing them to vote is not?
Those rascally Republicans...
Prosecutors allege Kirkland Kauzava Washington, 38, Harold Bennett, 53, Louis Thomas Wise, 36, Richard Howard, 62, Rose Makeda Sweeney, 42, Christopher Joseph Williams, 59, Jakara Fati Mardis, 35, Norman Hall, 61, and Nickey Demelvin Huntley, 44, solicited hundreds of fake or forged signatures on state ballot petitions and voter registration forms by offering homeless people a dollar or cigarettes for their participation.

At this point, there is no way for "state officials" to know that, so they are lying, one most highly suspects.
And, while I'm being suspicious, one wonders if the perps might be labor union organizers or employees of some fashion.
Democrats want names on the voter rolls so when the bums don't show up to vote (and the homeless will NOT show up to vote) Democrats can vote for them.
Democrats do fraud by voting the people who don't show up to vote.
Death penalty should apply.
News reports with GIANT half truths represent fake news.
The fraudsters had objectives (who were they trying to beneifit and who paid them to do it) to what they did, and certainly the officials learned of them in their investigation.

Did they fail to get that information from the officials, or are they suppressing the answers they got?
