Voter fraud indictments: one guy

Looks like this is the end result of last fall's Cuyahoga County "voter fraud" scare -- the one that got Fox News, out-of-town Republicans and ACORN-haters frothing with a conspiracy theory about election-stealing.

One voter got indicted.

Not quite a vast left-wing conspiracy.

By the way, the guy was caught trying to double-vote.

Here's the press release from the county prosecutor's office:

Darnell Nash Indicted for Voter Fraud

CLEVELAND-Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Bill Mason announced that Darnell Nash was indicted on charges of Tampering with Records, False Registration and Illegal Voting. County Sheriff's Office conducted the investigation.

Between May 31, 2008 and September 30, 2008, Nash registered to vote via ACORN nine times using fraudulent names and addresses in Shaker Heights and Cleveland. On September 30, 2008, Nash registered and voted at the Board of Elections using a false address on Lee Road in Shaker Heights.
