A Lincoln County Commissioner is charged with lying to federal investigators.
Thomas Ramey, Junior, 32, is accused of lying to an FBI agent who was investigating election fraud in the region.
US Attorney Booth Goodwin says Ramey failed to tell the truth when he said he did not know who altered absentee ballot applications.
The democrat appears to be the unidentified candidate for County Commission who allegedly schemed with then-sheriff Jerry Bowman and Clerk Donald Whitten to hijack their party's 2010 primary with fraudulent absentee ballots.
Bowman and Whitten have both plead guilty and resigned. They will be sentenced next month.
