Federal officials charge woman with bribing voters in 2013
HOBOKEN, N.J. (AP) — Federal officials say a New Jersey woman accused of bribing voters through mail has been indicted on a pair of federal charges.
The U.S. Attorney for New Jersey announced the two-count indictment Wednesday against Lizaida Camis, of Hoboken. The Jersey Journal reports the 55-year-old woman was arrested Sept. 20 after authorities said she promised voters $50 for casting their mail-in ballots for a particular candidate in Hoboken’s municipal election in 2013.
A message seeking comment from her attorney Wednesday was not immediately returned.
U.S. Attorney for New Jersey Craig Carpenito said last month that bank records indicated voters in Hoboken had received $50 checks from entities associated with campaigns that employed Camis.
