|Pennsylvania||Richard Toney||M||2009-05||Democratic primary||D||Absentee/mail||Voter intimidation/coercion||Federal conspiracy||1||50||Richard Toney pleaded* guilty to violating federal election laws by soliciting absentee ballots that prosecutors say benefited his wife and her running mate. Toney was immediately sentenced to three years’ probation. Toney retired in 2013, but in 2009 was still officer-in-charge of police in Harmar Township, PA. That’s when federal prosecutors contend he solicited absentee ballots for his wife, Kim Toney, and her running mate in that year’s Democratic primary for township supervisor. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan Ortiz told the judge that Toney and another man who wasn’t indicted but cooperated with authorities applied for absentee ballots, then had them filled out - often by people who shouldn’t have legally done so because they weren’t really going to be absent for the May 2009 primary. Ortiz said some voters felt compelled to go along for fear of “potential adverse consequences” because Toney was the township’s top cop. Before the absentee ballots were counted, Kim Toney and a challenger, Robert Exler, won the top two slots in the primary. After 50 absentee ballots were counted, Toney and her running mate, Jerry Chalmers, prevailed and went on to win the general election and two seats on the five-member board that runs the township.||*Plea deal: 3 years probation, for 1 charge of federal conspiracy||https://www.fbi.gov/pittsburgh/press-releases/2014/former-harmar-township-police...||http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/sep/25/ex-chief-to-plead-to-soliciting-...|
