Three Noncitizens Charged With Voter Fraud In Iowa

DES MOINES, Iowa – The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation says three Council Bluffs residents have been charged with election misconduct.

Two Canadian nationals and a Mexican national were booked into the Pottawattamie County jail. The felony charges allege they registered to vote in Iowa and voted in at least one election.

The arrests followed an investigations by an Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation agent who was assigned to work with Secretary of State Matt Schultz to root out voter fraud.

Charged are 52-year-old Albert Harte-Maxwell, 49-year-old Linda Harte-Maxwell, and 40-year-old Maria Ayon-Fernandez, all of Council Bluffs.

A criminal complaint says Albert Harte-Maxwell voted in the 2010 general election and 2011 city election and Linda Harte-Maxwell voted in the 2011 city election. Maria Ayon-Fernandez voted in the 2010 general election.

ICE SVU doesn't like arresting aliens, but claims that its work is investigating criminal aliens.  Call Gary Hartwig, the ICE SVU Special Agent-in-Charge in Chicago, and let him know that he is missing out on three good criminal cases of alien voters.  All the work has been already done, so you can't say they are too busy.  All they have to do is copy and paste from the indictment.
