Four more plead guilty in Los Angeles homeless voter fraud scheme

Homeless received cigarettes, money in exchange for fraudulent signatures.

Four Los Angeles residents have pleaded guilty to organizing a voter fraud scheme in the city’s Skid Row neighborhood, paying homeless people with cigarettes and cash to obtain fake signatures on various voter documents. 

The defendants “admitted their role in a scheme where money and cigarettes were offered to homeless people on Skid Row in exchange for false and forged signatures on ballot petitions and voter registration forms,” the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said in an announcement this week. 

The admissions of guilt follow another participant in the scheme pleading guilty in February to taking part in the fraudulent activity.
