Voters in Bell tell of possible fraud
http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-election-fraud-...
Several residents report incidents involving absentee ballots to D.A., who is probing city elections.

As Los Angeles prosecutors investigate potential voter fraud in Bell, several residents have told The Times that city officials pressed them to fill out absentee ballots in a way that election experts say may have violated state law.

Four voters said city officials walked door-to-door encouraging them to fill out absentee ballots. In one case, a woman said she signed papers she believed were election paperwork. She never filed an absentee ballot. But when she went to the polls on election day, records showed that she had voted absentee.

Two other voters said that two council members came to their homes urging them to fill out absentee ballots. The voters did and a few weeks later the council members collected the ballots, saying that they would personally submit them, according to the voters.

4. seems like corruption or drug busts
are the way we learn about election fraud. So far thats the trend.

IN Bell, the issue was the Kingly salaries being (self) paid to city officials.
This is a poor town and media should have rooted this out years ago.
