Voter Fraud Uncovered in LA After Man Caught Voting as His Dead Mother 3 Times
Caesar Peter Abutin arrested on felony charges of fraudulent voting
A case of voter fraud has been uncovered in a California city after a man was caught voting as his dead mother three times, according to reports.
A man in Norwalk, Los Angeles County was arrested and charged last month for using his deceased mother's identity to commit felony fraudulent voting.
Caesar Peter Abutin was also voting for himself, the Los Angeles District Attorney announced in a statement on Tuesday.
Abutin had been voting as his mother who had died over 14 years ago, the DA revealed.
The District Attorney’s office said in a statement:
"A Norwalk man has been charged with allegedly casting votes in three elections on behalf of his mother who had passed away, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced today.
"Caesar Peter Abutin (dob 11/2/64) was charged in case BA488819 with one felony count each of fraud in connection with votes cast and fraudulent voting," the DA's office confirmed.
"He pleaded not guilty today and is scheduled to return for a preliminary hearing setting on October 28 in Department 50 of the Foltz Criminal Justice Center," the statement adds.
"The case was filed for warrant on July 31.
"Deputy District Attorney Marian Thompson of the Public Integrity Division is prosecuting the case.
"Between October 2012 and November 2014, Abutin is accused of voting in three elections, claiming to be his 67-year-old mother who passed away in July 2006, while also casting votes for himself."
The charges were announced, coincidentally, in the midst of the Democratic National Convention.
During the event, Democrats took turns to accuse President Donald Trump of exaggerating the potential for voter fraud in his push against automatic mail-in voting.
In 2019, Los Angeles County agreed to remove as many as 1.5 million registered but inactive voters from its rolls.
The decision was forced in a lawsuit settlement with Judicial Watch.
Judicial Watch noted that 112 percent of the adult population of Los Angeles was registered to vote.
