Republican Sam Davis from New Jersey, recently reported “illegal voting activity” to the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office after he wrote on Facebook that he lost the recent November local elections against Indian American Shreekant Dhopte because “all the Indian people” in Chesterfield Township voted illegally for his opponent.
According to a Philly.com report, Davis said he cannot wait until all of them had to pay $15,000 fines.
According to the results on the county election website, Davis lost his seat on the township committee by 117 votes.
Balvir Singh, the first Indian American to be on Burlington County’s Freeholder Board who swore in Dhopte last month, told Philly.com that since the Indian American community was upset about the post, he contacted the Prosecutor’s Office to get an update about the voter fraud investigation and found that the case was closed due to a lack of merit.
Davis is a retired high school science teacher.
