HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama legislator was arrested Tuesday on felony voter fraud charges accusing him of voting in a district where he did not live.

Republican Rep. David Cole of Huntsville was arrested on charges of voting in an unauthorized location, according to Madison County Jail records.

The details of the charge were not immediately available in court records, but the arrest comes after accusations that Cole did not live in the district in which he was elected.

Cole, a doctor and Army veteran, was elected to the House of Representatives last year.

Voter fraud is a Class C felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

David Cole, a reporter with ALReporter with some of the more ludicrous details of the story he broke months ago.

According to all information, Cole and his family still lived at the home in District 4. Or, at least, they still claimed that address as their primary residence on tax documents.

Not only that, but the address Cole had listed on his qualifying papers was owned by a different person. And neither home had been sold or leased within the last 12 months, according to real estate records.

Definitely weird.

As luck would have it, I live only a few miles away from both addresses. So, while out running some errands a few days later, I took a drive by both places.

At the home in District 10, I found a man who definitely wasn’t David Cole cutting grass. As I drove by the home in District 4, I saw Cole out front walking the family dog.

I was pretty sure I knew what I was seeing.

In addition to possibly going to prison for his own arrogance, Cole stands to lose his medical license. All because he didn’t think the rules applied to him.
