Terri Rote has been arrested for voter fraud in the state of Iowa. Remember when Donald Trump was telling the world that the system was rigged against him and that there would be mass voter fraud during the election for his opponent.
As it turned his die-hard supporters are the ones being busted for violating voting laws. According to the police, 55-year-old Rote was caught voting twice for the Republican nominee. Rote, who has shared countless pictures of herself on social media attending Trump rallies and holding large Trump/Pence signs, was apprehended after casting two votes for the billionaire.
The police claimed that on Wednesday, Rote went to the Polk County Election Office where she voted early for Trump. A few hours later, she got to another voting location and tried to cast a second ballot for the mogul.
She was arrested and slapped with first-degree election misconduct charges. Rote, a registered Republican, is facing up to five years behind bars if convicted. She was booked into the Polk County Jail and rapidly released after posting a $5,000 bond.
After being freed, she spoke to local media saying that she decided to vote twice because she did not want the “machine” to give her vote to Hillary Clinton. She explained:
“I wasn’t planning on doing it twice, it was spur of the moment. The polls are rigged.”
Polk County Attorney John Sarcone said that he has been a prosecutor for 25 years and has rarely seen any case of voter fraud. He said:
“This [is] maybe the third [time] we’ve had some irregularity that’s resulted in a criminal charge “People aren’t voting more than once. And if they do, or attempt to do it, they will get caught because there are safeguards in place.”
Thus far Polk County has reported three cases of suspected voter fraud and has arrested only one person. Rote is very active on social media. She has many pictures of Trump on Facebook and countless racist and insensitive posts about “the haters.”
She has numerous rants about the Black Lives Matter movement. She wrote in a post:
“You black lives doesn’t matter. Run their assess over”
Some commenters are laughing at the irony of this situation.
