CAUGHT RED HANDED! – Oregon Election Worker Fired After Changing DEM Votes To GOP

An Oregon election worker has been fired and is under criminal investigation for changing ballots cast for Democrats to Republicans, according to The Raw Story.

Clackamas County, Ore. spokesman Tim Heider said in a press release  that Deanna Swenson, was “relieved of duty immediately after the alleged ballot tampering was discovered.”

Sources familiar with the incident say their understanding is that the Swenson filled in a straight Republican ticket on the ballots where preferences had been left blank by voters.

Swenson tearfully insisted that it was “only the two” ballots that she had altered.
