FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A former Kentucky election worker
testified that top election officers taught her how to change votes
during a federal vote-fraud trial.
Wanda White testified Friday that Clay County Clerk Freddy
Thompson helped show her how to manipulate voting machines, along
with Democratic election commissioner Charles Wayne Jones.
The Lexington Herald-Leader reports that White said the process
involved getting voters to walk away from the voting computer
before finishing their selections and then changing their choices.
In addition to Jones and Thompson, those indicted and on trial
are former Circuit Judge R. Cletus Maricle; former school
Superintendent Douglas Adams; Magistrate Stanley Bowling; William
Stivers, who has served as an election official; and William
"Bart" Morris and his wife, Debra.
