TROY, N.Y. -- The Albany Times Union is reporting the FBI will now look into a possible voter fraud case in Troy. The fraud is alleged to have happened during the September 2009 primary elections.
The allegations center on dozens of absentee ballots for the Working Families Party line that were forged to secure votes for several Democratic candidates.
Several city democrats have been investigated, including City Council President Clement Campana and Councilmen Kevin McGrath, Gary Galuski, and John Brown.
We caught up with Campana to get his thoughts on the article, and he says he is glad the FBI is taking action because it will show he did nothing wrong.
"From the get go, I did nothing wrong. I'm glad someone else is coming in to see what really happened. If something comes out of it, then it does. But, i did nothing wrong and I have nothing to hide,” said City Council President Clement Campana.
Rensselaer County Democratic Elections Commissioner Edward McDonough and Troy City Councilman Michael LoPorto are the only people who have been charged in the investigation.
