Gladys Coego, left, and Tomika Curgil, were arrested Friday.

A 74-year-old woman tasked with opening envelopes sent by Miami-Dade County voters with their completed mail ballots was arrested Friday after co-workers caught her illegally marking ballots, resulting in an unknown — but small — number of fraudulent votes being cast for mayoral candidate Raquel Regalado.

Investigators linked Gladys Coego, a temporary worker for the county elections department, to two fraudulent votes, but they suspect from witness testimony that she submitted several more.

Coego, of Westchester, turned herself in to the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on Friday morning. She was charged with two felony counts of marking another person’s ballot. Her bond was set at $10,000.

In a separate election-fraud case, authorities also arrested a second woman Friday for unlawfully filling out voter-registration forms on behalf of United for Care, the campaign to legalize medical marijuana in Florida.

The Miami-Dade state attorney’s office accused Tomika Curgil, 33, of filling out forms for five people without their consent. She also submitted at least 15 forms for people who apparently don’t exist — and several forms for people who are dead.

Police officers arrested Curgil at her Liberty City home Friday morning and charged her with five felony counts of submitting false voter-registration information. Her bond was set at $125,000.

    Ah, the Uneducated – Nothing like them. Ignorance is surely BLISS!! We’ll straighten this whole “deplorable” mess out when HRC takes over the White House. It would be a shame to have the PERVERT/TAX EVADER in the Oval Office. Soon comes the RAPE CASE OF THE 13 YEAR OLD FOLLOWED BY THE TRUMP UNIVERSITY FRAUD. Then there’s allllllllll those GROPINGS!!!!!

    These two women are criminals of the worst sort. They are guilty of attempting to steal people’s right to vote. Both women should be sent to a work prison for the remainder of their lives. With the exception of time for meals and basic hygiene, their days should be filled with hard labor from the moment they get up until they go to bed. They could be given the option for death by hanging on the public square. I have no sympathy or patience for people who tamper with voting.

  • Edgardo L. Perez-De Leon

    The election is rigged. This news does not show on which side but, by prejudice, a senior and a black, it is likely that they are Democrats.

  • Bob

    There is NO ONE MORE CORRUPT THAN ORANGE HEAD, the TAX EVADER, PERVERT. He can’t release his Tax Returns or he’ll be heading for Prison – that’s why his handlers insist he NOT RELEASE THE RETURNS. Once the Pervert gets nailed for RAPE OF A 13 YEAR OLD, and FRAUD in the TRUMP UNIVERSITY CASE, CHUMP WILL BE TOAST!!!!!

    • Rock

      Hillary, Bill and their “associates” have gone to new, beyond belief levels to pass the Trump corruption you talk about. Trump isn’t even remotely close ! It was Bill Clinton raping the 13 year old on the Lolita Express and the private pervert island, NOT Trump. No one gives a $h!t about his tax returns. Lastly, the Clinton Foundation is lightyears beyond any fraud claims leveled at Trump University.

    WHY IS A LAW THAT WAS PASSED IN 1952 BARRING ALL MUSLIMS FROM THIS COUNTRY, NOT ENFORCED? THIS LAW INCLUDES OBAMA SINCE HE SAID HE WAS A MUSLIM, AND ALL HE HAS AROUND HIM IN DC.

    JUST PRAY THAT DONALD TRUMP IS ELECTED AND IS ABLE TO TAKE OVER AS OUR PRESIDENT.

    GOOGLE THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLE 2015 AND YOU JUST MIGHT KNOW WHY.

    THE LAST WHY, WHY DONT THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA REPORT ALL THIS???????????

    TRUMP IS THE ONLY ONE THAT HAS A CHANCE TO HELP. ITS EITHER HILLARY OR TRUMP. MY CHOICE IS TRUMP.

  • Patricia T.

    Two idiots willing to destroy their lives for the Democrats.

  • Tyronne Shoelaces

    I’ll bet you a hundred dollars both of these bitches are democrats. The penalty for this crime should be so severe to deter people from doing this again.

  • Rodney Steward

    I’ll say it again, the only way the Beast can become President is illegally, and Soros has said that he needed Hellary to be President to carry out his NWO agenda! And of course the system wants her to protect that big old house of cards!

  • Hammer the Bar’stewards

    These are just two crooks in one area, on that basis there must be thousands of these crooks nationwide who are altering and submitting fraudulent votes. We all know that these fraudulent votes will be for HRC aka ‘the Queen of Corruption’. So those people who called Mr Trump out on his statement about Voter Fraud have been proved wrong again just like they are wrong most of the time on most things

  • gingergirl

    Until we get serious about REALLY punishing this fraud, people will continue to do it. I say a $10,000 fine for EACH instance AND 10 years in jail – every single day served. Problem is, people commit fraud and there is no real punishment. Shoot, the dems will probably pay her fines and she will move on to the next form of voter fraud. Notice how it is never the Republicans doing this? Also, votes NEVER flip from dems to repubs. Wonder why? Soros voting machines?

    • Pissungen

      That, and the lack of phot ID for voting. There is a petition going around here in Nevada to require it, but since our governor is handing out free drivers licenses, I’m not sure that wil even stop the fraud.

      • MyRoseHasTHORNS

        We need BIO-METRIC IDs not photo IDs,in a National database that eliminates fraud, secures one vote per person and alerts to fraud when a second attempt to vote occurs whether it is same day in the next polling precinct or in another state after being bused by unions and operatives. Mandatory felony sentencing, 10 years minimum and voting rights aren’t automatically restored!

        • Pissungen

          That makes perfect sense to me. You have my vote.

          • MyRoseHasTHORNS

            It just skeeves me out that they can go polling place to polling place voting multiple times and aren’t even asked for ANY ID.

            Photo Ids are becoming worthless. Calif. and other motor voter states hand them out like candy. Changes in hair color, make up and clothing can create multiple identities.

            We need something that identifies down to an individual and allows only them to cast their vote at a polling place. We’ll need a whole now design for validating mail-in ballots too, I have no problem with purple thumb prints using ink that won’t wash away for weeks. I’m sick and tired of their illegal/immoral do whatever it takes to steal an election. I want a legal/moral/ethical/FOOL PROOF do whatever it takes to TRUE the VOTE.

    • Janis

      And any illegal caught voting will be immediately deported. No hearings, nothing. The vote by a citizen is the most sacred of privileges and everytime an illegal votes it negates a citizens vote. So egregious.

  • Jose

    Of course, trump is wrong, there is no voter fraud.
