Secretary of State's Office Receives New Voter Fraud Complaints

Montgomery, Al. (WSFA) -- Secretary of State Beth Chapman says her office has now received first hand information from a Perry County voter alleging voter fraud.

Secretary Chapman, in a press release, tells WSFA 12 News that she met with a citizen who is willing to testify that voters were paid "$40 and a rock," for their ballots during the June 10th municipal elections.

The "rock" Secretary Chapman's office says referes to crack cocaine.

Secretary Chapman says the municipal allegations of voter fraud came seven days after major allegations were made in the June 3rd primary.

Her office is currently making a report of the specific allegations and will refer that report to Attorney General Troy King's office for additional review.

WSFA 12 News will have the very latest on these new allegations tonight on WSFA 12 News at 10:00.
