Rensselaer County Republican elections board commissioner Jason Schofield resigned on Wednesday night, and will now plead guilty to federal charges of fraudulently obtaining and filing absentee ballots. Schofield's change in plea was first reported by the Times Union.

Schofield's attorney confirmed the change in plea to CBS6 on Thursday, as Schofield is now expected to plead guilty when he appears in court on January 11th. Schofield, who was arrested by the FBI in September, was reelected by the Rensselaer County Legislature to a second term as Republican Elections Commissioner on December 13th. Every Republican voted yes in the 16-2 result, adding 4 of the 6 Democrats on the legislature to the yes total as well.

"I am so disappointed in the county legislature," Democrat Peter Grimm, one of the two "no" votes on the bill, says. "Politics came before governance. The people of Troy have been robbed, they've been robbed of their rights, of their will of their choices, and it's been proven."

Apparently the most effective way to stop vote fraud it to bar republicans from voting. They can't seem to follow the rules.
