Oregon Secretary of State, Kate Brown issued a press release last week, announcing an 81 year old, Portland, Oregon man, Lafalyette Keaton, was sentenced to jail for voter fraud. Also included in the sentencing were the charges for cashing Social Security checks.
If he serves the full term, he will be inside, for a year, and he will pay a $5,000.00 fine.
There’s also county charges against him — he’d been collecting Social Security, food stamps, and Medicare benefits.
For years, he’s been voting extra times, using the ballots for his deceased son and brother. Oregon decided a few years ago to go to vote-by-mail, an easy mark for those wanting to vote once, vote often
