Two Republicans in two separate states who were allegedly trying to test how easy it would be to commit voter fraud were taken into police custody for attempting to commit voter fraud themselves.
Roxanne Rubin, 56, was arrested on November 2 in Nevada after she allegedly tried to vote twice. Rubin allegedly voted at one polling location in Henderson, Nev. on October 29, and then went to another voting location in Las Vegas to try to vote again. Poll workers in Las Vegas told her that records indicated that she had already voted, but Rubin reportedly told them that she had not. A poll worker also reportedly over heard Rubin tell a man that she had "signed my name differently, and they did not ask for ID." Rubin was arrested at the Riviera Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas and was chraged with a category "D" felony.
Meanwhile, on Tuesday in New Mexico, a Republican poll watcher was arrested after trying to test the system. The man reportedly voted and then obtained a second provisional ballot and announced that he was "testing the system to see if people could get away with voting twice." This man's name is not yet being released because an investigation is on-going. Santa Clara, N.M. police chief Lonnie Sandoval said that:
“From what we understand, he was trained by the Republican Party.”
