Democratic Party member arrested for involvement in voter fraud scheme with numerous absentee ballots

A Queens man is facing indictment after being accused of submitting 20 fraudulent absentee ballot applications for the upcoming Democratic primary in 2022, as announced by the county district attorney’s office.

“Ensuring the significance of every vote is paramount. Election integrity serves as the bedrock of a functioning and viable democracy. Queens County District Attorney Melinda Katz expressed her unwavering commitment to prosecute individuals who attempt to compromise this integrity. Investigating and taking legal action against those involved in voter fraud requires both time and resources, which she is fully prepared to dedicate,” stated Melinda Katz, the District Attorney of Queens County, in an official press release.

The authorities have identified the suspect as Abdul Rahman, a 32-year-old individual from the Floral Park neighborhood in Queens. If convicted, Rahman could face a maximum sentence of seven years in prison for the 140 charges filed against him. According to the Gothamist, Rahman is known for his involvement in Democrat and South Asian circles.

According to the press release from the District Attorney, Rahman stands accused of voting 20 times in August 2022. The prosecutors revealed that Rahman had submitted 118 ballot applications on behalf of voters in the region, and out of those, 32 applications were approved.

Jesse Watters strongly emphasizes the urgent need for a thorough investigation into voter fraud cases, as well as the subsequent invalidation and prosecution of those responsible. This critical issue demands immediate attention in order to maintain the integrity of our democratic process.

Florida officials have filed felony fraud charges against a woman accused of voting in two states during multiple elections. The woman is facing serious consequences for her alleged actions, which undermine the integrity of the electoral process. This case serves as a reminder that voting fraud is a grave offense and will be treated as such.

Jordan Sandke, a man who went to his polling station on August 23, 2022, to cast his vote in the Democratic primary election, encountered an issue. He was informed that he couldn’t vote because he had already requested an absentee ballot. Upon investigation, it was discovered that Sandke had indeed submitted an application for an absentee ballot on August 1, 2022. The application included his personal information and a signature. Interestingly, Rahman was listed as the authorized person to collect Sandke’s ballot, according to the DA’s office.

According to the press release, Sandke revealed that he had not completed, signed, or submitted the application. He also stated that he had never met the defendant or given him permission to collect an absentee ballot on his behalf.

Law enforcement officers conducted interviews with voters whose names and information were listed on the other ballot applications. The investigation revealed that none of these individuals had submitted the form or authorized Rahman to collect a ballot on their behalf, as stated by the DA’s office.

“The City of New York’s Board of Elections takes great pride in its ongoing efforts to detect and report any election integrity concerns to the appropriate law enforcement authorities,” stated Vincent Ignizio, Deputy Executive Director of the Board of Elections, in a recent press release.”
