Suspicions were initially raised at Denton County Elections Office when all those absentee ballots were sent to the PO Box of a nursing home in Lewiston, Texas. The Elections Office contacted the police. When law enforcement reached out to some of the voters in the nursing home that had ballots sent out, they said had not requested that those ballots be sent to them at that address. After investigating further, officers found that the PO Box was set up using a fake University of North Texas student ID & fake Texas driver's license.
Investigators kept the post office under surveillance and say Mohamed picked up the votes and took them back to his residence. The officers then got a search and found not only the ballots, but the fake driver's license used to open the account. Mohamed was charged with 25 counts of unlawful possession of ballot without the request of voter and 84 counts of fraudulent use of mail ballot application. He now faces fines of up to $20,000 and 20 years in prison.
