Bosworth, Walker charged with violating election law

by Greg Belfrage

Former U.S. Senate candidates Annette Bosworth and Clayton Walker are facing charges for violating election law.

Complaints were filed this morning in Hughes County by Attorney General Marty Jackley. The attorney general has been investigating reports of possible problems with nominating petitions.

The election complaints received by the Secretary of State involve conduct that is serious, deliberate, and must be addressed in order to preserve the integrity of our elections. Because this is a federal elected office, I have and will continue to discuss the investigation with federal authorities, said Jackley.

Bosworth and Walker are both facing numerous charges of perjury and election fraud. Each charge is a Class 6 felony punishable by a maximum sentence of two years imprisonment and/or a $4,000 fine.
