A Pennsylvania man was sentenced to five years probation after he admitted to illegally casting his dead mother's ballot for former president Donald Trump during the 2020 presidential election.

Bruce Bartman, 70, provided an allocution in front of Delaware County Court of Common Pleas Judge George Pagano during a Friday hearing. Bartman apologized for his conduct and pleaded guilty to two counts of perjury and one count of unlawful voting.

"I was isolated last year in lockdown," the defendant told the court in proceedings originally reported by The Philadelphia Inquirer. "I listened to too much propaganda and made a stupid mistake."

Bartman's attorney, Samuel Stretton, also said his client had made "a very misguided political mistake" that was "very stupid."

The judge, for his part, lauded the defendant for admitting to his wrongdoing and said the case "goes to the heart of our democracy."

In November 2020, it was actually the Trump campaign that pointed out Bartman's dead mother had somehow cast a ballot. In an interview with The New York Times late last year, Bartman feigned ignorance about the incident and suggested that any voting issues were attributable to the actions of various Democrats.

As Law&Crime previously reported, Bartman was accused late last year of registering his mother Elizabeth Bartman and his mother-in-law ElizabethWeihman, both of whom were deceased at the time, via the Keystone State's online voter registration system.

Each of the dead women, who had been dead for some 12 and two years, respectively, were illegally registered as Republicans.

Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer (D) alleged that Bartman was ultimately only able to cast a vote for his mother.

Using his mother's driver's license number, Bartman accessed the Pennsylvania online voting portal and registered without incident due to what Stollsteimer termed a "flaw" in the system which was unable to catch the driver's license as belonging to a dead person.

The DA issued a lengthy statement last December indirectly addressing numerous, spurious claims by Trump and his allies that voter and/or electoral fraud had run rampant during the 2020 electoral contest between the unsuccessful 45th president and victorious eventual President Joe Biden.

Stollsteimer said in a press release:


While this case is disturbing in light of the contentious Presidential Election and its aftermath, it's important for the public to note two things. First, this is the only known case of a dead person voting in our county, conspiracy theories notwithstanding. Further, the prompt prosecution of this case shows that law enforcement will continue to uphold our election laws whenever presented with actual evidence of fraud and that we will continue to investigate every allegation that that comes our way. Second, even though this was the most secure election in our lifetimes, human history shows that there are always some who will try and criminally cheat any system. The fact that Mr. Bartman was able to register two deceased individuals through the Commonwealth's online voter registration system should trouble our state lawmakers. After all, the Delaware County Voter Registration Commission can only administer the system our Legislature puts in place.

In comments after Bartman's sentencing, Stollsteimer said he felt "justice" had been "served."

"There's not public benefit to him being incarcerated," the district attorney added. "This defendant from the beginning has accepted responsibility for his actions, and he has paid the price for them."

While some might dispute whether Bartman actually accepted responsibility "from the beginning" for the dead mother/mother-in-law voting scandal (because he didn't), many others immediately compared his probation punishment to the 5 years in prison that Crystal Mason received for voting while on supervised release for felony tax fraud. Mason did not know that Texas law forbids convicted felons from voting until they have "fully discharged their sentence, including any term of incarceration, parole, or supervision."

"I listened to too much propaganda and made a stupid mistake."

Seems like a common trait among conservative Trump supporters, but they'll only admit it when they're facing jail time. The rest of the time they're passing on the propaganda and lies as if they're the word of God.

No Bruce, driving away with your coffee on the roof of your car is a stupid mistake.

Two counts of perjury and one count of unlawful voting, that's a deliberate crime.

White GOP guy in PA who deliberately falsified 2 voting records and voted twice knowingly gets 5 years probation.

Black DEM woman in my county in TX who was never told a Federal probation prevented her from voting in a primary gets 5 years in prison.  ( Judge had a choice between 2 to 20 years )

go figure...

Haha I remember this dipshit. An actual case of voter fraud, committed by a trump supporter, and was caught without any additional voting/election security. It is almost as though the system is working just fine as is.

The guy appears to be blaming Fox News for his problems

“I was isolated last year in lockdown,” the defendant told the court in proceedings originally reported by  The Philadelphia Inquirer . “I listened to too much propaganda and made a stupid mistake.”
