GOP legislative candidate charged with deceptive election practices

A Republican legislative candidate running for a seat in Jefferson County has been charged with a felony after allegedly falsifying his signature on a ballot for Jefferson High School Board of Trustees in order to “test the system,” according to court documents filed late last month. 

Jefferson County Attorney’ Steve Haddon charged House District 75 candidate Tim McKenrick with deceptive election practices, a felony carrying a maximum penalty of 10 years in state prison and a $50,000 fine, according to legal documents first reported by the Boulder Monitor Friday. He’s slated to appear before the Fifth Judicial District Court on June 29.
