Minn. Man Pleads Guilty To Illegal Voting

ALBERT LEA, Minn. (AP) — A 22-year-old southern Minnesota man has pleaded guilty to voting illegally in the November general election.

Brohdy Avery has a felony conviction that made him ineligible to vote.

According to the plea petition, Avery entered his plea with the understanding that prosecutors will not recommend jail time. The agreement also recommends he be sentenced to probation, to run at the same time as a probationary sentence he’s already serving for drug possession.

The Albert Lea Tribune says Avery reportedly voted, even though he signed probation agreements stating that he was not allowed to vote until his civil rights are restored.

He also reportedly signed a Minnesota voter registration application that contains an advisory that felons cannot vote.

Sentencing is set for April 25.

    The Albert Lea Tribune story does not say who he voted for. It’s a shame that people in this country automatically assume that anyone who does something wrong belongs to the political party that they don’t agree with. Let’s remember that each political party supports issues we agree with and ones we disagree with.

    Amazing! Finally after complaining for years about so much voter fraud in MN, a person is found who committed voter fraud. That is one in 1. How many elections? 2. How many voters?

      Obviously you are ignoring all the other convictions, including ACORN workers.

    I’ll take that bet. I know him, he is a registered Republican! Your greed guilt is showing. Guess there is no need to “lead with” your party affiliation. Ya, the Republican party is not too thrilled with your affiliation to them either, but they liked the fact that you took this opportunity to bash the opposition. That’s what pseudo Republicans do. You know, Sarah, Dubya, Bachmann, no substance or fact, but that is the “way of the Republican?.

    Remember ACORN? Multiple voter fraud allegations, when will the AG look into that?

  • truth hurts

    I have a stupid question that I hope someone takes seriously and I don’t get a bunch of mean comments… I vaguely remember putting a party affiliation when I first registered to vote MANY years ago when I turned 18. I have registered to vote many times since then due to moving, and I have never put a party affiliation since. So does that mean I’m still “registered” to which ever party I put then? If so, how do I change it! I registered that way because that’s what my parents were and I didn’t know any better. I’d like to change it!

    Democrats use “appointed” Judges to ignore, change and dismiss public laws for democrats when they lose.

    That is why 300 completely missing ballots carry more weight than actual real rejected ballots from real voters in the State of Minnesota.

    Our local media is good at aiding and abetting treason and vote fraud.

    Quit wasting my taxes on chasing a multivoter. Ridiculous.
