|Missouri||Clara Moretina||John Moretina||F||2010-03||Democrat Primary - 2010||D||1||1||John and Clara Moretina, aunt and uncle of Democrat State Rep. J.J. Rizzo, pleaded* guilty to voter fraud - one count each of state misdemeanor charges of Committing Class Three Election Offenses - in Jackson County. According to County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker, they willfully provided to Kansas City Board of Election officials false information as to their addresses and residences in order to vote. The Moretinas admitted they attempted to cast an improper ballot in the Aug. 3, 2010, Missouri House primary in the 40th district. Rizzo won the primary by one vote. Kansas City Police Department detectives began to investigate voter fraud allegations after John C. Moretina pleaded* guilty in U.S. District Court to voter fraud by registering to vote on or about July 9, 2010, using a false address. Moretina, who actually resided in Gladstone in Clay County, voted in the 40th District primary in Jackson County on Aug. 3, 2010, using the false address. The Moretinas told an FBI Special Agent in May 2012 that they registered to vote in the 40th District primary because their nephew was a candidate for the Missouri House of Representatives in the 40th District. In addition to a fine, both will forfeit their voting rights.||*Plea deal/state: $250 fine plus forfeiture of voting rights, for 1 misdemeanor charge of Committing Class Three Election Offense.||http://www.kansascity.com/news/local/news-columns-blogs/the-buzz/article322182/M...||http://www.kshb.com/news/political/relatives-of-mo-lawmaker-plead-guilty-to-vote...|
