...for Trump.

Suzanne Morphew has been missing for months and posters and fliers were circulating all over town asking for people to help find her. Then one day Lori Mitchell, the clerk and recorder in Chaffee County, a Colorado community of about 20,000, received Morphew's ballot for the November election.

The ballot didn’t have Morphew’s signature as required but someone had signed on the “witness” line: The woman’s husband, Barry Morphew.

For a long time, she said, it was just something fishy that her office reported to law enforcement. Then Barry Morphew was charged this month with murdering his wife. This week, things got stranger still: Barry was also accused of casting his wife’s ballot in a fraudulent vote for President Donald Trump.

Barry echoed Trump’s false claims of election fraud as the motivation for his own alleged wrongdoing, according to an affidavit filed Thursday in court. The 53-year-old told FBI agents last month that he did it because “all these other guys are cheating” and said his wife would have backed Trump anyway.

I look forward to his explanation in court on the voter fraud charge: "Your Honor, when I was strangling the life out of my wife, with her last gasp she made me promise to cast her vote for president Trump in November. It was her dying wish."
