Former Stamford Democratic chief faces voter fraud charges
The former chairman of the Stamford Democratic Party turned himself in Wednesday on voter fraud charges stemming from the 2015 city election.
John Mallozzi faces 14 counts of false statements on an absentee ballot and 14 counts of second-degree forgery.
Mallozzi turned himself in Wednesday morning at the Stamford Police Department. News 12 Connecticut was there as he walked in with his attorney, Stephan Seeger.
The state filed a warrant for his arrest today after complaints from the state Elections Enforcement Commission about absentee ballots cast in the 2015 city election.
Mayor David Martin released a statement saying he hopes the charges aren't true, but "hopes these charges will lead to renewed faith in our society's belief in democracy and justice."
Seeger says his client is cooperating with the state’s attorney.
"Mr. Mallozzi…has been actively involved in politics for three decades so it's his natural inclination to cooperate with whatever the state's attorney wanted us to cooperate on,” he says.
Mallozzi posted a $50,000 bond and was released. He's due to be arraigned on Feb. 11.
State's Attorney Richard Colangelo was not available for comment.
