Nativo López alleges DA conspiracy
Investigators in the [Secretary of State] election-fraud unit said Nativo V. Lopez, 57, of Santa Ana leased office space in Boyle Heights and registered to vote using that address although he lived with his family in Orange County. They also say Lopez, president of the Mexican American Political Assn., cast an illegal ballot in L.A. in the 2008 presidential primary.
López calls the felony accusations baseless and tells La Opinión he’s the target of a politically-motivated LA County DA. (Rough translation)
They are going to have to justify their claims and their charges and I will have the opportunity to defend myself. … I will stress is that there is a lot of political motivation in the bottom of these allegations, there is no doubt that as a public figure I have been at the forefront of many controversial causes.
Twelve years ago, the Orange County DA investigated allegations that López registered non-citizens to vote. Charges were never filed.
