Former Democratic Lawmaker Charged with Violating Election Laws During Polling Place Incident

Election integrity is still the elephant in the room.

While political figures on both sides of the aisle increasingly seek to avoid discussion of the issue, evidence shows it continues to be a problem.

One of the latest instances occurred during early voting for a Buffalo mayoral race, brought on by former Erie County Democratic lawmaker and Board of Elections worker Betty Jean Grant.

According to local news station WKBW-TV, on Oct. 23, Grant entered a polling site at Delavan Grider Community Center and witnessed an elderly woman receiving ballot assistance — assistance Grant believed was a violation of election law.

The news station reported the former legislator then used her cell phone and began live-streaming the incident to Facebook.

At the start of the video, Grant can be heard repeating “that’s illegal” while filming.

However, Erie County Board of Elections Commissioner Jeremy Zellner, a Democrat, pointed out that what was allegedly illegal, was in fact “not improper.”

Zellner went on to say voters can “get help from people as long as it’s not their boss or a union rep.”

The elderly woman casting her vote was doing so using a “push stamp” with Mayor Byron Brown’s name on it.

Voting stamps are permitted in New York state and intended to assist with voting for a write-in candidate.

It was not determined if a bias for India Walton, Brown’s opponent, played a role in Grant’s behavior.

Carolette Meadows, the woman responsible for helping the elderly voter at the polling location, indicated she believed that may have been the case though.

“You take an 80 plus-year-old woman and make her feel like what she’s doing is against the law. And you get on social media and you intimidate and you bully the community.”

Both women support Mayor Byron Brown.

Action was taken by the Erie County Board of Elections, which revoked Grant’s poll observer certificate.

A letter sent by the office stated “you have interfered with the election,” and it was also requested she not come within 100 feet of voting sites.

Grant faces charges of one misdemeanor count related to the violation of election law and one count of second-degree harassment. She is set to appear in Buffalo City Court on Dec. 6.

    We are cleaning out the swamp gradually. It’s like an acne pimple. The infectious pus is ready to open up by coming to a head and be drained out. Another one bites the dust. Once we regain the republican majority, our American law makers should purge all of Bidumb’s administration immediately and get the CIA, DOJ and our attorney general to be patriotic American’s. We must implement a legal plan to prevent what the radical left has done ever again. I almost want to leave America. It makes me sick. I lived in China and it was like heaven compared to what Bidumb administration turned America into. Our government does not represent the desires of the people. Can we fire them? No. They take our income tax and take salaries 8X larger than ours while we make unlivable wages with unaffordable rent and have to beg from the government for food stamps and health care because health care expense is off the charts and cost of food is going through the ceiling. The only way to stop the radical commies reign of terror is to hire a few renegade CIA to put a bullet in their heads. Why not develop an underground republican managed CIA and do it?
