This is totally bogus. He's a nice guy, but that type of fraud deserves real punishment. This just solidifies the message: politicians can run wild and free.

I believe the punishment fits the crime and home detention saves money. None of these people appear to be a threat to society. I would assume prison time would have been short and they are probably serving a longer sentence through home confinement.

Pretending to be law abiding productive citizens isn't really working out for them. They need to pay a professional to try and clean the image up. Going to take years to change a lifetime of screwing people over.

None of you has even the faintest idea of how corrupt this election was, or of the degree to which state officials nearly broke their necks looking the other way. If the FBI had not gotten involved, Hallum would still be in the state legislature. The kid glove treatment he and his daddy got in federal court was nauseating. I know that we need to reserve the prison beds for axe murderers, but couldn't we turn a pot smoker or two loose to make room for people who steal elections? Am I the only one who thinks that election stealing might be a more serious corrosion of our society than growing hemp? Home detention? You mean grounding the offender so he can watch HBO from his couch for 9 months? For STEALING AN ELECTION?

Come on people, get mad. We don't have to put up with this shit.

Stealing an election is cause to be concerned. Driving an ambulance and being a paramedic testing positive for hydrocodone morphine and other drugs is even a bigger concern. Forget violating parole they have put people's lives in serous danger.

Overreact much? Geez

It seems that "stealing" the election is a pretty far stretch there Billy Bob. He bought what, 20 votes with chicken?

Politicians have been buying votes for hundreds of years, what these guys did is nothing new. Get over yourself and find bigger problems to worry about.

He had close to 400 absentee ballots . It involved more than buying a few people chicken dinners. They tracked absentee ballots that were mailed from the clerks office. They meaning he and his father had dozens delivered to them they would open them and keep the ones that voted for Hallum. They would tear up the ballots if the vote was for anyone else. You know all of this though it just makes you feel good to lie. Life of a Dem !

Do you enable much ? Perhaps you Joey are a big part of why this story is in the news again. You buy 10 votes and that is the reason you fail a number of drug test ? Buying 10 votes you are ordered by the request of your PO to seek help for prescription addiction. Buying 10 votes does all of this or maybe not facing the truth does this to someone Joey, misleading everyone helps no one sounds like you need help yourself .

It has nothing in the world to do with enabling.
If you think you or I or anyone else will be able to do anything about eliminating the buying of votes, you are living in a dream world. It's been going on forever and will ALWAYS be a part of our society in some form or fashion.
Take off your rose colored glasses and see the election world for what it is...

So why don't we stop trying to punish people who rape women molest children, and murder people ? It still happens every day so since we can't stop it we should just ignore or give in. You know what they did was wrong that's why you keep trying to defend them . It is what it is Joey you aren't going to change the minds of everyone by trying to rationalize or make excuses for them.

How come you keep avoiding the latest subject of why they are back in the news? Is that ok with you too ? Does everyone that's on house arrest test positive for drugs while working on an ambulance ? Is that ok too . We will take off our rose colored glasses right after you take off your blinders that hide the truth . Get a job Joey.

Now you're just being ridiculous and I won't even address that first statement.

I never said I thought it was right simply that it in the grand scheme of things, it's a minor deal.

I have no idea what you are talking about or why they are back in the news nor do I care why they are in the news. It's irrelevant to what I was commenting on.

To the people who had their absentee filled out for them and didn't get a choice on who to vote for it is a big deal. Just because you personally do not think it's a big deal doesn't mean it's not a big deal. Why do you think the FBI got involved ? Do you think they were bored with nothing else to do?
