John Fetterman, the Democratic nominee for the US Senate in Pennsylvania may have committed a felony for offering lottery tickets and a Sheetz gift card for voting for him. Fetterman, who is in the hospital after suffering a stroke and undergoing an operation to install a pacemaker, won the Democratic nod easily, even though there are serious questions about his health. He claims that he is expected to make a full recovery.
100 Percent Fed Up Exclusive – Yesterday, we reported about the vaxxed and boosted Pennsylvania’s Lt. Governor and US Senate candidate John Fetterman who suffered a stroke on Friday but waited three days before releasing news of his stroke to the public— only 48 hours before Pennsylvania’s primary election. The silence about his serious medical condition has raised speculation that his campaign was trying to withhold this information from voters until after the vote, only releasing an official statement after the news started to leak to the public.
New evidence provided by a whistleblower exclusively to 100% Fed Up shows that tweets from Fetterman, which have since been deleted offered gifts in exchange for “banked” votes. The tweet offered lottery tickets and Sheetz gift cards for those who show proof of their vote.
“I want ALL the @’s (all Twitter accounts begin with @) in my TL, (Timeline on Twitter).” Fetterman appears to be asking for evidence that voters cast their ballots to be entered into a contest to win Sheetz gift cards and lottery (“PA scratch-offs”) tickets.
On 10/31/20, “John Temporal Investig…” shared an image of himself dropping his ballot into a Bucks Co. PA absentee Ballot Dropbox and asked if he could get a WAWA gift card instead of a Sheetz gift card since WAWA is only a 10-minute drive from his home versus Sheetz, which is an hour + drive.
In Pennsylvania, it is a felony offense to offer, give, or promise an elector a reward, money or anything of value to someone for voting for you. This is considered bribing a voter.
It is also a federal crime for someone running for state office if there is also an election for a federal office on the same ballot.
II. Conduct Actionable as Federal Election Fraud, Intimidation, or Suppression
The following activities provide a basis for federal prosecution under the statutes referenced in each category:
- Paying voters to register to vote, or to vote in elections where a federal candidate’s name is on the ballot (52 U.S.C. § 10307, 18 U.S.C. § 597), or through the use of the mails in those States where vote-buying is a “bribery” offense (18 U.S.C. § 1952), or in federal elections in those States where purchased votes or registrations are voidable under state law (52 U.S.C. § 20511).
According to 18 U.S. Code § 597 – Expenditures to influence voting is a serious offense:
Whoever makes or offers to make an expenditure to any person, either to vote or withhold his vote or to vote for or against any candidate; and Whoever solicits, accepts, or receives any such expenditure in consideration of his vote or the withholding of his vote—Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if the violation was willful, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.
