From Ryan Whelan in State of Politics:
“Western New York Tea Party activist Rus Thompson has been indicted by an Erie County Grand Jury. Thompson posted a photo of a letter he received from acting District Attorney Michael Flaherty on his Facebook page Monday.
He’s charged with voter fraud after sources said he moved from his Grand Island rental to Niagara Falls, and then voted in the November election with an affidavit ballot using his old address. The usually outspoken Thompson has been advised by his attorney not to speak publicly about the case but that hasn’t kept him off social media.
“The Grand Island republicans AND the Erie County republican leadership should feel proud of what they are doing to my family,” he wrote on Facebook just a few hours after he posted the letter.”
