Since pleaded guilty to voting in the name of his deceased mother in order to reelect then-President Donald Trump, a Pennsylvania man was sentenced to five years on probation.
According to court records and the office of Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer, Bruce Bartman, 70, obtained the sentence on Friday, April 30 after pleading guilty to two counts of perjury and one count of illegal voting.
Voter records show that Bartman used Pennsylvania’s online voter-registration portal to register both his late mother, Elizabeth Bartman, and his deceased mother-in-law, Elizabeth Weihman, who died in 2019 — illegally registering both as Republican voters, the district attorney’s office said.
Using his mother’s driver’s license number, Bartman accessed the Pennsylvania online voting portal and registered without incident due to what Stollsteimer termed a “flaw” in the system which was unable to catch the driver’s license as belonging to a dead person.
Following his sentencing, Bartman will also lose his right to vote for four years pursuant to Pennsylvania statute, the district attorney’s office said in a news release.
