Andrew Spieles, 21, must serve a 100-day prison sentence for falsifying eighteen Virginia Registration forms last August. Spieles is a James Madison University student who registered the deceased for the Democratic Party.
The court waived fees with the charges because he is unable to pay them. He will not have to serve probation after being released from jail.
“On August 15, 2016, an employee at the Registrar’s Office contacted law enforcement after another employee in the office recognized a registration form submitted in the name of the deceased father of a Rockingham County judge.
“The Registrar’s Office discovered multiple instances of similarly falsified forms when it reviewed additional registrations.
“Some were in the names of deceased individuals while others had incorrect middle names, birth dates, and social security numbers.
“The Registrar’s Office then learned that the individuals named in these forms had not in face submitted the new voter registrations; the assistant registrar’s personal knowledge of the names of some of the individuals named in the falsified documents facilitated the detection of the crime.”
Spieles used “walk sheets” given to him by the state Democratic Party to obtain names, ages, and addresses of individuals. He fabricated birth dates and social security numbers for the forms. He later admitted his crime and pleaded guilty.
He was eager to falsify these documents because the Democratic Party pushed him into meeting a quota:
“Spieles told investigators that he alone was responsible for the fake voter registrations and claimed his antics were designed to help his co-worker reach a registration “quota,” The Richmond Times-Dispatch reported in June.
“Court documents reveal Spieles’ job was to register as many voters as possible and report to the Democratic campaign headquarters in Harrisonburg, according to WCAV.
“The fraud is punishable by up to a year in prison and a $100,000 fine, but Spieles reached a plea agreement with Assistant United States Attorney Jeb Terrien that limited his sentence to between 100 and 120 days behind bars.”
And despite the left telling us voter fraud is not a big deal and never happens, it does and it is. The Harrisonburg Police Department worked with the Federal Bureau of Investigation on this matter. They did not take this lightly. Spieles was convicted in a federal court for his crime.
