Alabama lawmaker arrested on voter fraud charge
An Alabama legislator was arrested Tuesday on felony voter fraud charges accusing him of voting in a district where he did not live.
Republican Rep. David Cole of Huntsville was arrested on charges of voting in an unauthorized location, according to Madison County Jail records. The details of the charge were not immediately available in court records, but the arrest comes after accusations that Cole did not live in the district in which he was elected.
Cole, a doctor and Army veteran, was elected to the House of Representatives last year.
