Charges were filed against a 71-year-old Florida woman who prosecutors say committed voter fraud using fake citizenship papers.
Aida Xilomen Rodriguez de Shehab, who registered as Democrat, was arrested Wednesday for allegedly voting illegally in at least five elections in Alachua County since 2016, the Ocala StarBanner reported.
Rodriguez de Shehab faces charges for being an unqualified elector willfully voting and submitting false voter registration information.
Among the elections she allegedly cast a vote was the 2016 U.S. presidential election, according to prosecutors.
It’s unclear where the woman has citizenship from.
“She illegally falsified information on her voter registration by using a counterfeit naturalization certificate,” State Attorney Bill Cervone said in court papers. “It’s alleged as a deliberate act and not a misunderstanding.”
The Alachua County supervisor of elections, Kim Barton, said the agency is cooperating with the State Attorney’s Office.
“Voter fraud is something we take very seriously,” Barton told the newspaper.
Rodriguez de Shebab was booked Wednesday in Alachua County jail, where she is being held on $130,000 bond.
