Patrick Lynch on Voter Fraud: Not To Worry, Statute of Limitations Is Only a Year

Extending, even out of office, his repugnant legacy of coming to the aid of Rhode Island's political bad guys, no matter the crime or infraction, former RI Attorney General Patrick Lynch helpfully tweeted the following this morning at 7:22 am (re-tweeted by the spokesperson of the current Attorney General).

Rhode Island legal trivia: There is a one year Statute of Limitation for most voter fraud and election offenses. …

I wonder if a conspiracy to commit voter fraud has the same limits at either the state or federal level.

Federal is 5 years for that type of offense i believe.

Let's see if we can find a sensible,"We the People" type of Legislator to introduce a 5 year or longer Statute of Limitations. I heard there was a new Law Firm coming to R I after our one term AG is out. It'll be called KILmartin & Lynch Em' LLC.
