(Natural News) Two men in Southern California have been arrested and charged with voter fraud after they submitted more than 8,000 fraudulent voter registration applications, said the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office on Tuesday, Nov. 17.
Carlos Antonio De Bourbon Montenegro, 53, and Marcos Raul Arevalo, 34, claim to have submitted the voter registration applications on behalf of Los Angeles County’s homeless population.
According to the district attorney’s office, Montenegro and Arevalo submitted more than 8,000 voter registration applications on behalf of homeless people in Los Angeles County between July and October. Additionally, Montenegro is being accused of falsifying names, addresses and signatures on nomination papers under penalty of perjury in a failed attempt to run for mayor of the city of Hawthorne to the south of Los Angeles.
Back in August, Montenegro tried turning in the paperwork to run for mayor. His application was rejected because he failed to meet the required 20 signatures of support from at least 20 Hawthorne residents.

Montenegro and Arevalo are being charged with eight counts of voter fraud, four counts of procuring and offering a false or forged instrument, four misdemeanor counts of interference with a prompt transfer of a complete affidavit and one count of conspiracy to commit voter fraud.
Additionally, Montenegro is being charged with an extra 10 counts of voter fraud, seven counts of procuring and offering a false or forged instrument, two counts of perjury and five misdemeanor counts of interference with a prompt transfer of a complete affidavit.
Both individuals were arraigned on Tuesday at the Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center in downtown Los Angeles. If convicted as charged, Montenegro can face a maximum sentence of 15 years and eight months in prison, while Arevalo can face seven years in prison.
Listen to this episode of the Health Ranger Report, a podcast by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, as he talks about how the American public needs to fight back against the Democratic Party-backed election and voter fraud. If they get away with it, he warns, they will steal every future election, and no election in the United States will ever be considered fair or free ever again.
Fake mail-in ballots quickly flagged by county officials
Montenegro and Arevalo attempted to get the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk to send them over 8,000 mail-in ballots, supposedly for the homeless voters that they signed up. Fortunately, the registrar’s office quickly caught on to their scheme and was able to flag all of the applications as fraudulent. None of the homeless people Montenegro and Arevalo tried to sign up to vote were actually able to cast their ballots.
According to the conspiracy charge, Montenegro allegedly issued write-in candidate nomination papers for himself that he filed and submitted containing 32 signatures and addressed for people who were either fictitious, nonexistent or deceased.
It further alleges that Montenegro, Arevalo and several other still-unknown co-conspirators used three post office boxes in Hawthorne as the mailing addresses for these 8,000 fraudulent voter applications.
Hawthorne has around 44,000 registered voters. The massive number of people Montenegro was trying to register would have boosted the city’s electorate by nearly 20 percent. This spike in voter registrations set off alarm bells in the registrar’s office, which prompted county officials to notify both the California Secretary of State and the district attorney’s office.
The case was investigated by the district attorney’s Bureau of Investigation, with help from the Secretary of State’s Office, the Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s Office, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Covina Police Department.
