Another High-Profile Latino Leader Arrested
Yesterday I posted that the Executive Director of Homies Unidos was arrested. Today, an arrest warrant for Nativo Lopez was issued. Looks like they’re coming after us. Read this quote from the LA Times. We are on the brink of a social explosion! I guess we better learn our place quickly, right?
Felony charges have been filed and an arrest warrant issued for a well-known Orange County political activist suspected of committing election and voter registration fraud, the California secretary of State’s office announced Wednesday.
Investigators in the agency’s election-fraud unit said Nativo V. Lopez, 57, of Santa Ana leased office space in Boyle Heights and registered to vote using that address although he lived with his family in Orange County. They also say Lopez, president of the Mexican American Political Assn., cast an illegal ballot in L.A. in the 2008 presidential primary.
The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office, which is working with the secretary of State, charged Lopez with four felonies: fraudulent voter registration, fraudulent document filing, perjury and fraudulent voting. A warrant was issued for his arrest and bail was set at $10,000. The offenses carry penalties of up to three years in prison.
