No, a Texas man was not indicted for filling out 1,700 mail-in ballots, despite what Attorney General William Barr said.

Federal prosecutors brought no such indictment. And while a Justice Department spokeswoman said Barr was referring to a local prosecution involving suspected mail-in voting fraud in a city council election, the assistant district attorney on that case said Barr’s description doesn’t match the facts.

“That’s not what happened at all,” said Andy Chatham, who is now in private practice. The case at issue stems from a 2017 investigation into suspected mail-in voter fraud in Dallas County.13857049.gif
