Plea bargain in AZ vote fraud case

Gateway Pundit (quoting Albuquerque Journal) An Arizona woman accused of illegally collecting early ballots in the 2020 primary election pleaded guilty Thursday in an agreement with state prosecutors that saw the more serious forgery and conspiracy charges dismissed and limited any potential for a lengthy prison sentence.

Guillermina Fuentes, 66, could get probation for running what Arizona attorney general’s office investigators said was a sophisticated operation using her status as a well-known Democratic operative in the border city of San Luis to persuade voters to let her gather and in some cases fill out their ballots.

Prosecutors were apparently unable to prove the most serious charges, dropping three felony counts alleging that Fuentes filled out one voter’s ballot and forged signatures on some of the four ballots she illegally returned for people who were not family members.

"Apparently unable to prove" is just bullshit editorializing. It's a plea bargain. Hopefully, it's one that includes an obligation to testify against other people who were involved. But, as with Durham, I'm not going to hold my breath while waiting for justice.
