Missouri Rep. John Joseph Rizzo’s relatives admit to voter fraud

John and Clara Moretina, Rizzo’s aunt and uncle, pleaded guilty in Jackson County court. The Gladstone residents admitted they illegally claimed a Kansas City address in order to vote in their nephew’s 40th district Democratic primary in August 2010. Rizzo’s opponent in that race, Will Royster, said the admissions show Rizzo should leave office.
