Reno man sentenced in Arizona for voter fraud in 2016 election


Richard Greenfield, of Reno and Vail, Ariz., has been sentenced to two years probation for double voting in the 2016 general election. That’s according to a report in the Tucson Sentinel.

Greenfield, 80, pleaded guilty to a felony of attempted illegal voting.

“He admitted that he cast a ballot once in Pima County (Ariz.) and once in Washoe County,” the Sentinel reported today. He is not allowed to vote while on probation.

Arizona’s Attorney General is prosecuting the case, along with another man, Randy Allen Jumper of Incline Village and Pima County, who is alleged to have also double voted in 2016. Jumper pleaded not guilty last month.

The Pima County Recorder, F. Ann Rodriquez, told the Sentinel that these cases are popping up “because of our cross-state matching” program.

Nevada officials, in response to Jumper’s indictment in Ariz., told ThisisReno there has been no attempt investigate or prosecute Jumper.
