ALLENTOWN, Pa., April 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — On April 26th, District Attorney Jim Martin announced that he would be deploying Lehigh County detectives on primary day, May 17th to surveil drop boxes and prosecute voters dropping off more than one ballot.
It is the opinion of Lehigh County Controller Mark Pinsley, that this amounts to a clear effort to intimidate and suppress voters, and dissuade many from using drop boxes.
“What is clear is that Jim Martin wants to use taxpayer dollars to play partisan politics, intimidate voters, especially voters of color in Allentown, and lend further credence to the Big Lie about widespread fraud in our election system. I won’t stand for it,” said Lehigh County Controller Mark Pinsley.
