A mayoral Candidate, Zul Mirza Mohamed, in Carrollton, Texas, has been arrested and charged with voter fraud. The Denton County Sheriff’s Office has Mohamed in custody and charged him with 109 felonies related to voter fraud.
The investigation began September 23 when the Denton County Elections Office notified sheriffs of possible fraudulent activity related to absentee ballot applications.
Officials say absentee ballots had been requested to be sent to a PO Box in Lewisville that was supposed to belong to a nursing home facility. When investigators contacted the Carrollton residents whose ballots had been requested, they learned that none of the residents had asked for ballots to be mailed to the PO Box.
