An Alexandria, Virginia resident Vafalay Massaquoi, 30, will be facing 40+ years in prison when he filled out multiple voter registration applications using fake names. Massaquoi has racked up a total of four felony charges in regards to voter registration fraud, with each charge summing up to ten years in prison. He was arrested near Philadelphia and extradited to Alexandria Oct. 27, and is being held without bond.
An employee of the liberal advocacy group New Virginia Majority, Massaquoi falsified applications and used fake names to fill out registration forms as early as 2016. He was promptly fired this past June, and a warrant for his arrest was made out in July. “Protecting the integrity of our elections so they remain free, fair, and accessible remains New Virginia Majority’s top priority,” the New Virginia Majority said in a statement Friday.
“Since the fraudulent applications involved fictitious people, had the fraud not been uncovered the risk of actual fraudulent votes being cast was low,” said Commonwealth’s Attorney Bryan Porter, who claims no illegal votes were actually casted.
