Former Bolivar, TN City Councilwoman Brenda Woods was recently sentenced for corralling felons to vote for her in the city’s 2009 municipal elections. Woods transported three felons, including two relatives, to the polls to cast votes for her. She used this method for her election to city council and also for her failed mayoral bid.
In court, the felons admitted that Woods knew about their previous felony convictions. However, “she assured them they could still vote.” The felon’s voting rights indeed had not been restored.
Woods’ sentence of two years in prison was suspended, and she has been placed with an intensive community-based supervision and treatment program. She has also lost her voting rights and her ability to run for elected office.
As seen before, this is another example of Democratic candidates knowingly recruiting illegal votes.
