Covering Perry County: Residents Rally Against Voter Fraud

Marion, Al. (WSFA) -- Residents like Carrie Ramie claim to know voter fraud all too well.

"There are a lot of people who never had that much to say except with their own families, but a lot of them are disturbed," Ramie said.

With their own county the target of an intense investigation, many residents say they've had enough.

A group of voters called the Democracy Defense League--or DDL--met at Marion Military Institute to speak out against long standing allegations of corruption at the polls.

It's a problem Alabama Secretary of State Beth Chapman says needs to be addressed.

"I can tell you right now, we have enough evidence that some people will go to jail," Chapman told the audience.

League members weren't the only ones at the rally.  Commission candidate Albert Turner--a man who sits at the heart of voter fraud allegations--says he's being unfairly targeted by Attorney General Troy King.

"It appears to me that he has selective prosecution on his mind, and I'll be waiting on the front porch for Troy King and his men to come to Perry County," Turner said. 

State leaders say they won't stop until the truth behind these allegations is brought to light.

"We've made some pretty strong reports--with names and dates and times and places," Chapman explained.

Voters say they hope those reports will change the way politicians do business in Perry County.

"This is not the way to conduct government.  We want just government.  We want good government," Carrie Ramie said.

NOTE: Secretary Chapman is urging residents who saw or know of any instances of voter fraud to call the new voter task force at 1-800-274-VOTE or visit their website at www.stopvoterfraudnow.com.
