Will Royster and John Rizzo
KANSAS CITY, Missouri - A Missouri watch dog investigation released a report this week
on behalf of Will Royster, highlighting voter fraud in the August
3rd primary between Royster and John Rizzo.
The report says at least four people who voted for Rizzo lived
outside the 40th district, but used addresses inside the district
“We need to put an end to fraud even if there is a hint of
it; that’s the election board’s responsibility –
to ensure fair and proper elections,” said the group’s
Royster has filed a lawsuit contesting the one-vote margin after
a judge ruled in favor of Rizzo.
Royster supports say they didn’t present this information
to the judge during the suit because they didn’t have the
info until now.
Rizzo told NBC Action News he hopes his opponent “comes to
respect our democratic process and finds a way to accept loss with
grace and dignity.
