As the city of Troy, NY, awaits jury selection in the first trial involving two Democrats and their alleged roles in a "massive"voter fraud scheme, new details have emerged from the investigation. Details involving two other veteran political operatives that have already pleaded guilty.
According to a recent Fox News report, Anthony Renna, a Democrat guilty of second-degree forgery, and Anthony DeFiglio, a Democrat guilty of first-degree falsifying business records, are trying to drag all local politicians, regardless of party affiliation, down with the ship.
Thus far, eight people have been charged in connection with the ballot fraud investigation, four of which have pleaded guilty.
Reports emerging from the investigation indicate that the Democrats are trying to implicate Republicans of the same conduct they have been charged with. According to the state police, Renna and DeFiglio both claimed that, "voter fraud is an accepted way of winning elections, and faking absentee ballots was commonplace."
Renna explained that the process of handing in forged ballots and fake votes ensures that "ballots are voted correctly." He adds, "'Voted correctly' is a term used for a forged application or ballot."
DeFiglio added that such fraud is actually "an ongoing scheme and it occurs on both sides of the aisle. What appears as a huge conspiracy to nonpolitical persons is really a normal political tactic."

Gee, sooooo surprising... NOT!!
Well, it this is actually true, it’s over, then.
Do you know how to tell that this is a bald faced lie?
Look and see if any Democrats have filed charges against any Republicans for the crime. If the Republicans had been doing this you can bet your life that the Democrats would have filed charges long ago if it were so.
Look! More Democrats getting prosecuted for vote fraud!
For Democrats, this is a normal political tactic.
That’s why one of the first things that happens after an election is prosecution of Democrats for vote fraud.
If you can....would you just DO it!!??
It would be nice if these guys throw dems from other districts under the bus in order to help themselves. We could have a real chain reaction.
No wonder the rats holler so loud about voter ID laws and roll purges that remove inactive (ie., dead) registrations.
Let me see if I have this right: The article is about democRATs who get caught engaging in vote fraud and trying to distract from their actions and the only party mentioned in the headline is the party that DID NOT engage in fraud?
Do I have that right? Really?
No bias there, huh?
NYS GOP is an acronymic oxymoron.
Headline at source link has been changed to “New York Democrats - Voter Fraud is ‘A Normal Political Tactic’”.
