On July 29, 2010 the Los Angeles District Attorney filed criminal charges against Richard Alarcon for voter fraud and perjury.
After a 15 month investigation, the Grand Jury and District Attorney indicted Richard Alarcon on 18 separate counts.
Most insiders speculate that the only reason Richard Alarcon is running for State Assembly is so he can keep raising cash to pay for his legal defense.
To date, Alarcon has spent over $46,000 from the “Alarcon for Assembly 2012” Committee for his legal defense.
This is money he wouldn’t have unless he was running for office.
After 18 indictments for Voter Fraud and Perjury, this Get Out Of Jail Free card may be Richard Alarcon’s last chance.
So if you see Richard Alarcon, give him one of these cards….He needs it!
The Los Angeles District Attorney’s office has a 100% success rate in prosecuting voter fraud cases over the last 10 years.

“We do have two houses and maybe that’s caused some confusion, but my permanent residence is on Nordhoff Street.”
—Richard Alarcon, August 2010
While he may own two houses, mountains of evidence, Grand Jury testimony, and eye witnesses prove that Alarcon is lying.
Eye witness accounts, Grand Jury testimony, and even utility records show that Alarcon lied and perjured himself in order to stay in office.
It’s not immediately clear how much prison Alarcon would face but it could be "substantial."
—Jennifer Lentz Snyder, Deputy DA
As early as January 2010, KABC-TV reported that the LA County DA’s Office was investigating a case that could eventually involve felony charges against Alarcon for voter fraud.
…They were right!
