Paterson Councilmen Michael Jackson, Alex Mendez indicted in voting fraud case, Grewal says

PATERSON — Two City Council members — Michael Jackson and Alex Mendez — have been indicted on various voting fraud chargesstemming from last May’s Paterson elections, the New Jersey attorney general announced Wednesday.

The allegations involve the councilmen’s handling of mail-in ballots in the all-vote-by-mail election conducted in the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The two men — prominent political adversaries of Mayor Andre Sayegh — won their races by more than 200 votes, but they were charged with election fraud about a month after the final results were in.
