A campaign volunteer for a Cherokee Nation election in Oklahoma was charged with mail-in ballot fraud.
The Cherokee Nation Attorney General’s filed one charge of election fraud and one charge of false personation against Lisa Cookson, a volunteer for a Tribal Council candidate in District Two, on May 3rd.
Cookson is charged with “fraudulently filling out and signing absentee ballot request forms without the knowledge or consent of voters,” and while the investigation is ongoing, over 15 fraudulent ballots have already been identified.
According to the tribe’s Attorney General Sara Hill, “the Cherokee Nation takes these charges very seriously.” “It is critical we enforce tribal election laws in order to protect the rights of Cherokee citizens and protect the integrity of the Cherokee Nation’s electoral process,” she added.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
