New Mexico Candidate petition challenge: Carlos Villanueva v. Jacob Candelaria (Southwest Political Services hired by Candelaria campaign) 2012 Democratic primary D Petition fraud Forgery 31 people responsible for collecting signatures to get Democrat Jacob Candelaria on the June 2012 ballot were named in a criminal investigation, accused of falsifying voter records and voter fraud. The Candelaria campaign said the suspects are former canvassers for a company called "Southwest Political Services". That company was paid by Candelaria's campaign to gather the needed 75 signatures to get his name on the ballot for the District 26 State Senate seat. A number of voters say they never signed the petition and that their signature was forged. At one household, a man found his name on the petition twice with two different style signatures and also found his wife's signature. "She never signed at all." Another voter said more of the same. "Not even the print is her handwriting," a woman said of what was supposedly her mother's signature. "And that is not even how you spell her name." At another address, a woman said the voter listed on the petition moved out years ago. The Bernalillo County District Attorney's Office said it was reviewing the case, and complaints were also files with the Secretary of State's Office and with state police concerning the forged signatures. Petition challenge dismissed http://www.koat.com/news/new-mexico/albuquerque/State-Senate-candidate-accuses-o... http://www.abqjournal.com/106249/abqnewsseeker/ballot-the-main-fight-in-senate-d... http://www.nmtelegram.com/2012/04/12/dems-in-state-senate-bernco-da-race-stay-on...
