“All four convicted of petition fraud sentenced”
“Four people were sentenced in the petition fraud case that stems from the 2008 primary election.
Butch Morgan was sentenced to one year in prison and one year of community corrections for being the ringleader of petition fraud in the 2008 primary election.
“He’s the only one I asked for an executed sentence and he got an executed sentence,” said Prosecutor Stan Levco.
The only other one who stood trial was Dustin Blythe.
He was sentenced to one year community corrections and 2 years probation.
The two women, Beverly Shelton and Pamela Brunette, pleaded guilty. They were sentenced to two years probation.
All four must each pay a $500 fine and court costs.
The judge said that he would not classify this case as voter fraud-since votes were not cast.
The prosecution agreed.
“What I thought he said and what I agree with is Obama still would have been elected president but in this situation the worst that would have happened is maybe Barack Obama wouldn’t have been on the ballot for the primary. But he lost the primary,” said Levco.”

“Shocking election fraud allegations have stained a state’s 2008
presidential primary – and it took a college student to uncover them.
“This fraud was obvious, far-reaching and appeared to be systemic,”
22-year-old Ryan Nees told Fox News, referring to evidence he
uncovered while researching electoral petitions from the 2008
Democratic Party primary in Indiana.
Nees’ investigation centered on the petitions that put then-senators
Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton on the ballot. As many as 150 of the
names and signatures, it is alleged, were faked. So many, in fact,
that the numbers raise questions about whether Obama’s campaign had
enough legitimate signatures to qualify for a spot on the ballot.”
