Second Person From Fond Du Lac County Charged With Voter Fraud

(Campbellsport) A second person in Fond du Lac County has been charged with voter fraud in the November 2020 election. Anthony Van Egtern is facing a felony count of Election Fraud – Illegal Voting. The Campbellsport man was disqualified from legally voting last year because he was on probation at the time. According to the criminal complaint, the 40-year-old voted at the Taycheedah Town Hall. When questioned by investigators Van Egtern denied illegally voting. Fond du Lac County District Attorney Eric Toney says these prosecutions are not indicative that the election was stolen but elections are the cornerstone of our democracy and the integrity of our electoral process must be protected at every turn. He says they will continue to prosecute any circumstances of voter fraud, as allowed by law, in order to safeguard the electoral process and ensure the public has confidence in our elections. If convicted, Van Egtern faces up to three-and-a-half years in prison. An initial appearance is scheduled for December 7th. Donald Holz was charged in September for illegally voting during the presidential election. The 63-year-old has a preliminary hearing scheduled in January.
