Man admits to voter fraud in casting dead mother's ballot

MEDIA, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania man who illegally voted for Donald Trump on behalf of his long-dead mother in last year’s presidential election has been sentenced to five years of probation. Bruce Bartman pleaded guilty Friday to two counts of perjury and one count of unlawful voting. Besides his probation term, the 70-year-old Marple man will not be allowed to vote in an election for four years and is no longer eligible to serve on a jury. Bartman apologized for his actions, telling the judge: “I was isolated last year in lockdown. I listened to too much propaganda and made a stupid mistake.”
