Bridgeport State Rep. Christina Ayala arrested on 19 voting fraud charges

HARTFORD - State Rep. Christina “Tita” Ayala, D-Bridgeport, was arrested Friday on 19 voting fraud charges.

Ayala, 31, is accused of voting in local and state elections in districts she did not live, the Chief State’s Attorney’s Office said in a press release.

The arrest warrant affidavit also alleges Ayala provided fabricated evidence to state Election Enforcement Commission investigators that showed she lived at an address in a district where she voted while actually living outside the district, according to the release.

Ayala, who represents the 128th District, was elected in 2012, replacing her cousin, Andres Ayala, who was elected to the state Senate. She chose to run for reelection earlier this year, despite the voting fraud investigation, but lost a four-way primary in August.

Part of the group running around 'screaming' there is NO evidence of voter fraud anywhere! The fox yelling from the chicken house, 'No one but ...'

While this happened over two years ago, and the sentencing handed down in late 2105, it didn't get much coverage other than local. She admitted to everything and got a ridiculously mild sentence.

"31-year-old Christina Ayala pleaded guilty to two criminal counts today, two counts of providing a false statement. Ayala was sentenced to one year in prison, execution suspended, and two years conditional discharge. That conditional discharge is that Ayala does not run for officer during those two-years.

Ayala was elected to the Connecticut House of Representatives in 2012, and then was defeated in a primary when she was seeking re-election.

Ayala plead guilty to providing false statements to the State Elections Enforcement Commission during an investigation that Ayala had voted in districts she wasn’t allowed to vote in."

Every day it looks more like President Trump has every reason in the world to suspect elections have been rigged to favor Democrats.
