New York Clement Campana Anthony DiFiglio William McInerney Anthony Renna John Brown Clement Campana Gary Galuski Michael LoPorto Ed McDonough Kevin McGrath M 2009-09 Working Families Party Primary D Absentee/mail Clement Campana, Troy City Council President, was indicted on five felonies and one misdemeanor for his allegedly defrauding voters during the 2009 Working Families Party primary. Campana was charged with four felony counts of illegal voting, one felony count of falsifying business records in the first degree as well as one count of conspiracy to promote or prevent election, a misdemeanor. He pled* not guilty to all charges in front of Judge George Pulver. The indictment states that Campana worked with other Democrats to conspire to help candidates win the primary. Many of the allegations involve talking voters into accepting and signing absentee ballot applications, and then filling in the rest of the application with fraudulent information like why the voter couldn't vote and then filing them with the Board of Elections. Campana turned down a deal that would have required him to plead guilty to a misdemeanor and serve 60 days of house arrest, said his attorney E. Stewart Jones, Three others pleaded guilty to felonies for their role in the scandal, including Councilman John Brown, who will likely spend six months in jail. http://www.saratogian.com/article/ST/20111221/NEWS/312219994
