SOUTH BEND, Ind. — REAL News Michiana has discovered the St. Joseph County Democrat Party hired a woman who was convicted of election crimes to recruit election volunteers for the party. According to the latest financial report filed with the St. Joseph County Clerk’s Office, the Democrat Party paid Beverly Shelton $1,500 for her recruitment services. The payment was made to Shelton on October 12th of this year.

Shelton, a former employee of the St. Joseph County Voter Registration Office, is one of several Democrat deputies who were convicted in a voter fraud scheme stemming from the 2008 general election. The former St. Joseph County Democrat Party Chair, Butch Morgan, was also convicted of fraud in that case and was sentenced to prison for his part.

Shelton pled guilty to Forgery and Falsely Making a Petition in the scheme and was sentenced to probation. In that case, Shelton and several other Democrat deputies of the Voter Registration Office admitted to forging the signatures of several citizens for petitions to get Hillary Clinton onto the 2008 ballot. Subscribers can read the court documents, including the narrative by the investigator in the case, below.

In September, RNM uncovered a story regarding Shelton being hired by the Democrats to work in the county’s absentee ballot office this election season. The absentee ballot office is staffed by employees who are hired by their respective parties to work for the county election system. Each major party hires their own workers to create a bipartisan work environment. However, following our story, sources tell RNM that the Democrat party backed out on the job offer. Instead, the party paid her from its on coffers for “volunteer recruitment” just two weeks later.

ANOTHER QUESTIONABLE HIRE

RNM has also confirmed another former Democrat deputy of the St. Joseph County Voter Registration Office who was convicted in the scheme was also hired by the Democrat party to work in the Central Count area during the primary election this past spring. Pamela Brunette was convicted on three counts in the same voter fraud incident, including Forgery, Falsely Making a Petition and Official Misconduct. Subscribers can read those court documents, including the narrative by the investigator in the case, below.

  1. Interesting address also. Neither 513 E Washington nor 513 W Washington seems to exist in South Bend. What’s up with that??
