Opening statements were made by both the prosecution and the defense in a massive upstate New York voter fraud case. Special prosecutor, Trey Smith, promises to expose the seedy underbelly of Democratic politics in the city of Troy, something other Democrats already charged in the case have referred to as 'normal political tactics.'
The trial involves Democrat Board of Elections Commissioner Ed McDonough, and former Councilman Michael LoPorto, who combined, face over 100 total charges that include second-degree forgery, second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, and second-degree criminal possession.
Smith has claimed that Democrats 'went for a power grab to ensure that several of its candidates, namely former Councilman John Brown, LoPorto, and former Council President Clement Campana, won the 2009 Working Families Party primary, which would help them win the general election a month later.'
For his part, defense attorney Brian Premo, isn't necessarily denying the accusations but rather, trying to place "the blame on Democratic politicians and operatives". He even admitted a scheme in which Brown and Campana, both aspiring mayoral candidates, concocted a story to blame the fraud on then Department of Public Works Commissioner Bob Mirch, a Republican.

Looks like this prosecutor is attempting to violate the fraudulent voting rights of Democrats in Troy.
Republicans should be in the Democrat's face over this corruption and fraud but they are weak and cowardly and let it continue.
The GOP will remain SOL until it clamps down on Democrat vote fraud with biblical intensity.
I mean: They’ve been pulling this BS since reconstruction.
Not just in New York, my friend. This should be job#1.
