FBI Subpoenas St. Louis Election Records

Tuesday, 17 April 2001 12:00 AM

The FBI subpoenaed records covering the period between Oct. 1 and March 6. It wants to examine absentee ballots, at least 143 people who were not registered but allowed to cast votes, and 3,800 suspect voter cards, which included the names of several deceased aldermen and a dog.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported it witnessed the serving of the subpoena at 3:30 p.m. Monday. No board officials or commissioners were present. The elections board has until 9:30 a.m. May 6 to comply.

Attorney General John Ashcroft was expected to recuse himself from the investigation because the possible voter fraud would have played a role in his re-election defeat. Missouri officials already are investigating the situation. Sen. Christopher Bond, R-Mo., had been urging federal involvement.

Vote fraud charges began to fly when the 3,800 suspect voter cards surfaced just before the March 6 mayoral primary.
