A 22-year-old college undergraduate has been sentenced to a year in prison for stealing the identities and passwords of more than 700 fellow students at his university so he could rig a campus election.
Former Cal State San Marcos student Matthew Weaver rigged the election so he could become student body president, the U.S. attorney's office said on Monday.
He was one of two candidates for the position at the San Diego area school in March last year.
Weaver, of Huntington Beach, pleaded guilty in March to wire fraud, unauthorized access of a computer and identity theft.
The third-year business student admits that he bought three small electronic devices that record a computer user's keystrokes to steal 745 passwords.
Weaver says he used those stolen identities to cast about 630 votes for himself and for friends who also were on the ballot.

After he gets out, the Democratic party will be waiting for him with a job.
That should be a good lesson for us all.
Deceptive headline. The perp was jailed for computer crimes. The election was the motivation.
One question. As someone formerly in student government, why the foxtrot is being student body president that big of a deal? You're still a nobody if you win.
Looks good on your resume?
Sounds like this movie I watched last November. The perp in the movie had bigger ears.
hell he’ll be POTUS in a few years
all of it can be rigged, remember the hanging chads caused by Democrats punching through multiple ballots all at once after the election trying to steal it for Gore?
Make sure he doesn't get a computer or internet connection in jail. That would prolly be his worst punishment after the expansion of his rectum.
Rising star in the Dem party, strike that, Obama cabinet post.
I ‘witnessed’ it also.
Hopefully, in jail he finds a way to pay his student loans for ‘the education’ he received.
I was thinking more along the lines of his becoming the next independent contractor for the NSA.
PLUS The cost of Weaver’s scam cost Cal State San Marcos $40,000 which they will be seeking from Weaver.
There’s a job waiting for him at the FEC when he gets out. If he can sell some dope or move some illegal weapons while he’s in there, he can probably have a shot at DoJ too.
This may really be THE FOREIGNERS SON.
followed the democrat/obama/chicago model.
a year in prison!
Hell, Kirk got his own command for rigging the “Kobiashi Maru”
Future democrat political star.
