Daytona commissioner arrested for ballot fraud
Daytona Beach City Commissioner Derrick Henry and his campaign manager were arrested Wednesday, charged with committing absentee ballot fraud during Henrys 2010 re-election campaign.
The arrest of Henry and Genesis Robinson comes a little more than two months after Volusia County Supervisor of Elections Ann McFall requested an investigation into irregularities in absentee ballot requests coming into her office.For the partisan hacks out there (you know who you are), I don't know if this guy is a Republican or a Democrat, and I honestly don't care. This is fraud and I hope they throw the book at him.Henry also had requested an absentee ballot for his niece, listing her address as a home registered to Henry that was located within Zone 5. But investigators discovered that even though the niece used the absentee ballot to vote in the Zone 5 race, she actually lives at a different location in the city, outside of Zone 5. Investigators also spoke to several others who confirmed that they hadnít asked for an absentee ballot and had no idea that the Henry campaign had requested a ballot for them.
