Ohio Republicans Charged After Being Busted Distributing Phony Sample Ballots: Report
A new report from Marion, Ohio revealed on Tuesday that Republican candidate for Marion City Auditor, Robert Landon, and Marion County GOP official, John Matthews, have both been charged as for distributing sample ballots to voters across the city.
According to WSYX ABC 6 reporter Ben Garbarek, the two Republicans were charged as a result of an investigation into election fraud in Marion, Ohio.
According to Ohio law, political parties or candidates are banned from handing out sample ballots. The fraudulent materials handed out by Landon and Matthews were printed on white paper, while the law requires sample ballots to be on colored paper to distinguish them from real ones.
