2010 Wisconsin – Criminal Conviction – Louis and Jane Kwiatkowski

The Wisconsin couple was convicted of voting twice, with each casting absentee ballots in elections in the town of Wyocena, where they owned a cabin, before later voting in the city of Blooming Grove. The victor in the Wyocena trustee’s race–who also happened to be the Kwiatkowskis’ preferred candidate–won by a two-vote margin, prompting the judge to declare that the couple’s fraud swung the election. Mr. Kwiatkowski was fined $2,000 and his wife received a $1,500 fine.
