Philadelphia Man Charged with Forging Signatures on 2019 Election Papers


A Philadelphia political consultant was arrested Wednesday for charges related to forging signatures on political nomination petitions to get his clients on the ballot for the 2019 Democratic primary in Philadelphia.


Rasheen Crews, 46, was the subject of an investigation by the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General that started in September 2019. It is not clear why the charges are coming three years later. According to a criminal complaint, the investigation happened largely in the spring of 2021.


The investigation happened under Pennsylvania Governor-elect Josh Shapiro, a Democrat, who is still the state attorney general until the end of the year.


The investigation found that in 2019, multiple candidates allegedly hired Crews to help them get the required number of signatures needed for their nomination petitions to get on the ballot for Democratic primary races.


Signatures must be from citizens who live in the area a candidate will represent. The number of needed signatures varies, depending on which office a candidate seeks. Competing candidates often scrutinize the signatures to see if any should be removed.


Crews allegedly recruited individuals to help with the petition work, bringing them to a hotel room and asking them to write names, addresses, and forged signatures on multiple petitions, according to the Attorney General’s office. He then allegedly had these petitions notarized and filed with the Pennsylvania Department of State on behalf of his clients.


Over 1,000 Signatures Deemed Duplicated

Of the petitions that were reviewed, over 1,000 signatures were determined to be duplicated. Many names and addresses were found repeated on various petition pages, some pages appeared to be photocopied entirely, and some of the listed individuals claimed to have never signed the petitions.


Because of the questions around the petition signatures, some candidates chose to withdraw from the election, according to the Attorney General’s office.


Crews was charged with criminal solicitation to commit forgery and theft by failure to make required disposition.


“In advance of the 2023 municipal elections, this arrest is an important reminder that interfering with the integrity of our elections is a serious crime,” Shapiro said in a press release.


“By soliciting and organizing the wide scale forgery of signatures, the defendant undermined the democratic process and Philadelphians’ right to a free and fair election. My office is dedicated to upholding the integrity of the election process across the Commonwealth, to ensure everyone can participate in Pennsylvania’s future.”


This matter is being prosecuted by Senior Deputy Attorney General Thomas Ost-Prisco.

Dozens of Documents Linked to Pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s Associates will be Unsealed After Judge Rules Public Interest Trumps Privacy


Dozens of documents connected to late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s associates will be released to the general public following a judge’s ruling on Friday that the public interest overrides the right to privacy, Daily Mail reported.


This morning Judge Loretta Preska (in the civil suit of Giufre v. Maxwell) ordered the unsealing of dozens of Jeffrey Epstein-related documents. Judge Preska is a senior judge for the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.


This latest ruling came in response to efforts by eight (8) “John/Jane Doe” third parties who petitioned the Court, demanding that scores of records be sealed and kept from the public to preserve the “Does'” reputations.


Judge Preska ruled that the documents pertaining to eight people could be released, despite objections from the “Does,” one of which was apparently unmasked in the hearing as Tom Pritzker, billionaire executive chairman of the Hyatt Hotels. Lawyers for Pritzker had argued that unsealing the records would “wrongfully affect (his) privacy and reputation.”


Daily Mail reported:


Among those whose names are mentioned in the documents are Emmy Tayler, Ghislaine Maxwell‘s former personal assistant, who was accused of taking part in the sexual abuse of minors.


The Gateway Pundit joined the court hearing earlier this morning.


At the end of July, The Gateway Pundit reported on our legal efforts to unseal the list of Jeffrey Epstein’s sex clients – the men and women with whom Epstein traded sex with minors for favors or money or both.


TGP Lead Counsel Marc Randazza of the Randazza Legal Group and TGP General Counsel John Burns moved to intervene in the Ghislaine Maxwell case in the Southern District of New York.


However, something truly bizarre and unexpected happened.


An anonymous John Doe – literally styled by his lawyer as “John Doe” – filed an objection to TGP unsealing the sex client list … and the Court SIDED WITH THE JOHN DOE over the interests of the press and public to know what happens in one of the most remarkable court cases in US history.


We now know there are at least sixteen (16) “John / Jane Does.”


Today Judge Loretta Preska announced that the majority of material concerning eight of the “Does” should be unsealed despite objections relating to privacy and reputation.
