Investigation: State Sen. Roderick Wright indicted on charges of voter fraud and perjury - latimes.com

A Los Angeles County grand jury on Thursday unsealed an eight-count felony indictment against state Sen. Roderick Wright (D- Inglewood), accusing him of filing a false declaration of candidacy, voter fraud and perjury beginning in 2007, when he changed his voter registration to run for the Legislature.

Wright listed as his residence a home in the district he wanted to represent, but county authorities allege that he did not live there as required by state law.

The indictment also alleges that Wright fraudulently voted in five elections in 2008 and 2009.
