|Arkansas||Sam Malone (West Memphis Police Officer)||Hudson Hallum Kent Hallum Phillip Carter||M||2011||State House Primary, Runoff and General||D||Vote Buying||Absentee/Mail||Conspiracy||Former Democratic Rep. Hudson Hallum, Kent Hallum, Phillip Wayne Carter and Sam Malone pleaded guilty to the conspiracy that helped Hudson Hallum win his seat in the Arkansas House of Representatives in 2011. Conspiring to commit election fraud in a scheme that included destroying ballots and exchanging money, alcohol and food for votes. Prosecutors said Hallum and his father, Kent, tasked campaign workers Phillip Wayne Carter and Sam Malone with obtaining absentee ballot applications for certain voters and assisting voters in filling out the ballots, while actually completing absentee ballots in some instances without regard to the voter's actual candidate choice. A total of nine people were charged by federal and state authorities in connection with the plan. Carter had used the same absentee ballot fraud strategy in other elections at the state and federal level. Carter organized others, including Malone, a Quorum Court member, School Board member and police officer, to participate.||Plea deal: 3 years probation, including 7.2 months of home confinement with electronic monitoring, 100 hours of community service||http://www.arktimes.com/ArkansasBlog/archives/2012/09/05/vote-fraud-case-coming-...||https://www.fbi.gov/littlerock/press-releases/2013/former-state-representative-h...||http://media.arkansasonline.com/news/documents/2012/09/05/hallumetal.electionfra...|
