Queens District Attorney Richard Brown’s office just released more information about the Jimmy Meng aide charged in the voter fraud case.
The 36 people whose voter information was allegedly fudged by the aide, Simon Ting, didn’t actually vote. But Ting still faces up to four years in jail.
Interestingly, the DA said that there was a “watch list” of suspect voters, meaning the office had been monitoring this situation since before the 2004 election.
In a brief conversation yesterday, Ting’s lawyer, John Theodorellis, told me his client pleaded not guilty to all the charges.
From the DA:
The District Attorney noted that all 36 registrations were placed on a watch list before the primary election and that none of the people voted or attempted to vote and that the registrations were subsequently cancelled by the Board of Elections. The investigation did not uncover any evidence that anyone other than the defendant participated in the scheme.
