2 Local Illinois Officials Get Jail Time for Vote Fraud

-By Warner Todd Huston

Cahokia, Illinois — Kyle Johnson and Trevon Tompkin, both former Cahokia Village Trustees, were sentenced to serve jail time for vote fraud perpetrated during the 2009 municipal elections.

Cahokia Village is a southern suburb of East St. Louis, Illinois, situated in the state’s south western corner across the Mississippi River from St. Louis, Missouri.

Kyle Johnson was given five years probation and 14 days in the St. Clair County Jail as part of a plea deal with prosecutors. Trevon Tompkin was given five years probation and ten days in jail.

Naturally none of the news reports mention the party affiliation of these fine examples of civic virtue.
