Princess the Goldfish Successor

A woman working for SEIU of Illinois to register voters has been charged with fraud. Cast back your memory to the Princess the Goldfish, Voter, controversy in Lake County, which the Progress Illinois blog, a front for SEIU har-de-harred about at the time. It was perhaps a red herring, but there was fraud nonetheless. Daily Herald:

A Chicago woman filed at least 10 fake voter registration cards in Lake County before last fall's election, prosecutors said Monday.

Jeannette Sims, 46, of the 700 block of North Ridgeway Avenue, is charged with mutilation of election materials and faces up to three years in prison.

Sims was working with a voter-registration drive sponsored by the Service Employees International Union when she submitted the falsified cards, said Assistant State's Attorney Christen Bishop.

Election clerks had discovered more than 1,000 suspicious registrations which prompted the criminal investigation--phony addresses or people's names appropriated.
