2 Worcester men face voter fraud charges
WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — Two Worcester men are facing voter fraud charges stemming from last month’s municipal election.
Fifty-year-old Mark Atlas is charged with voting under someone else’s name.
Authorities say 57-year-old Richard Suchocki provided Atlas with the name and address of another registered voter.
Police began investigating when that voter went to cast his ballot on Nov. 5 and was told he had already checked in.
Suchocki’s lawyer tells The Telegram & Gazette (http://bit.ly/1bfJP78 ) that his client “denies that he has done anything wrong” and will be exonerated.
Atlas could not be reached for comment.
Authorities did not disclose a possible motive.
