Ohio Vote Fraud Conviction

Remember the guy who registered the likes of Dick Tracey and Mary Poppins in return for crack cocaine? Well, he just pleaded guilty to 10 counts of false registration.
Two months after pleading not guilty to faking voter registration forms in exchange for crack cocaine, a Defiance man has pleaded guilty to 10 counts of false registration.

Chad Staton, 22, of Stratton Street appeared in Defiance County Common Pleas Court Thursday to enter pleas to the 10 counts of the fifth-degree felony. In December, a grand jury returned indictments against him for filing forms in the names of Mary Poppins, Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Michael Jordan, Dick Tracy, Jeffrey Dahmer, Brett Favre, George Foreman, Maria Lopez, and George Lopez.

He faces a $2,500 fine and a year in prison for each count.

Let's hope he gets jail time. Lots of it.
