A Vote for Trump Will Bring Felony Charges, Grand Jury Decides

An Ohio grand jury of 48 working-class citizens has taken the unusual step of saying it will indict on felony charges anyone who votes for Donald J. Trump in the Nov. 8 presidential election. The grand jury consists of 39 white men, four white women, three black men, and two Hispanic women.

In the event that Trump loses to his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, the indictments — which are expected to number in the millions — likely will remain sealed and the charges dropped, according to a statement released by the grand jury on Friday morning.

But if Trump wins the election, those who voted for him will be indicted on several felony and misdemeanor charges, including three counts of conspiracy to sabotage or undermine the United States, two counts of aggravated assault on the integrity of America, one count of child endangerment, one count of acting in a manner unbecoming a citizen of a great nation, one count of behaving like a complete imbecile, and one count of voting with intent to despoil and desecrate the values of love, kindness, decency, maturity, dignity, humility, sanity, intelligence and common sense.

A conviction on these charges could result in a prison sentence of life-and-beyond, with no possibility of parole, even after death.
