Daytona Beach City Commissioner Derrick Henry and his campaign manager were arrested this morning and charged with absentee ballot fraud, the Volusia County Sheriff's Office said.
Henry, 41, is charged with two counts of absentee ballots/voting violations, nine counts of being a principal to absentee ballots and voting violations-one count of conspiracy to commit absentee ballots and voting violations.
Genesis Robinson, 21, is accused of 11 counts of being a principal to absentee ballots and voting violations and one count of conspiracy to commit absentee ballots and voting violations.
All of the charges are third-degree felonies. They will be taken to the Volusia County Branch Jail with bail set at $6,000 each, Sheriff's spokesman Gary Davidson said.
Volusia County Supervisor of Elections Ann McFall reported irregularities in absentee-ballot requests coming into her office Aug. 11, Davidson said. McFall brought her concerns to the Sheriff's Office, which launched a joint investigation with the State Attorney's Office, Davidson said.
Henry, the Zone 5 incumbent who was locked in a three-way primary, was re-elected on Aug. 24.
The...investigation revealed that between the two of them, Henry and Robinson had requested a total of 92 absentee ballots through the elections office's website, Davidson said.
Four ballots were found at Henry's house on Sept. 23, he said.
Investigators interviewed many of the 92 people the absentee ballots were requested and heard a variety of stories, Davidson said.
One resident said she received an absentee ballot in the mail even though she hadn't requested one, ...
In another case, a resident said that Henry offered to get him an absentee ballot and the resident agreed...when the ballot arrived at the man's house, it came with a second ballot for a former resident who had moved away in 2007. Davidson said.

Just another black DEM "keepin' it real"...
I know, I'm a racist for noticing...
So very stupid. He was the incumbent, he's black in a district that is mostly AA and he was going to win anyway!!
The democrats have to win at any cost to avoid prison. They can’t trust these crazy tea party candidates to play the usual games.
Hopefully these folks in any county will be busy nailing these guys - there's going to be a lot of stuff like this going on.
This is the Genesis Robinson in question, from his Facebook page.
Volusia County has a loooong history of ballot issues - once, they sent a wagon with the sealed ballot boxes to the Capitol, and a decoy by another route.
Both wagons were hijacked.

Conspiracy (requiring 2 or more persons) to commit multiple vote fraud should be a capital offense. It is outright sedition against fair elections.
Our founding fathers gave their lives for that right.
All this vote fraud is seriously undermining the people’s confidence in the system. Just what the democrats ordered, more chaos!

Hey, Orlando Sentinel! Let’s play “Name That Party”
Let me guess ,,,,, he’s a dimocrap .
I just found out I work with a guy who is related to the election supervisor, Ann McFall, invloved in the Volusia county vote fraud case. Odd enough, I know. But here is the massive KICKER! Ann McFall is ALSO RELATED TO BARRY HUSSEIN OBAMA! She is related to his white (mother’s) side.
My source said she is NOT pro-Barama.

. . . so what you’re sayin’ is ,, corruption runs in the family !!!
I watched this on the Orlando news last night. The lawyer claimed that the two were simply helping needy voters get their absentee ballot. The lawyer actually used the term “DISENFRANCHISED” voters. Oh, disenfranchised voters! Now this can just go away.
