Frazier introduces “Jeff Belle” bill to increase penalties for ballot statement lies

In a move that would take a major step forward in addressing accountability for cases of election fraud perpetrated by candidates, Assemblymember Jim Frazier announced on Thu the introduction of AB 894, which will increase penalties in cases that decide a willful misrepresentation was made on a candidate statement.

Currently, the penalty for a candidate lying on his or that person nomination papers, which are not public documents and remain within a county’s elections office, are much greater at a maximum of $1,000 and 3 years in prison. Frazier became aware of that fact last year, didn’t think it made sense and decided to do something about it.

Article length: About 300 words.
