Rita Wiley, the wife of a prominent Ohio Republican official, was convicted Wednesday of five counts of voter fraud related to a months-long scheme to cast fraudulent ballots during the 2020 presidential election. Wiley was found guilty of one count of making false voter registrations, two counts of tampering with records, and two counts of illegal voting. She was accused of filing ballots using the identity of deceased individuals, registering false addresses, and casting illegal votes. Wiley’s husband, Ohio Senate Majority Leader Matt Huffman, was not charged and denied any involvement in the scheme. Wiley is the fourth person to be convicted in the scheme, and both she and her husband were named in a 32-count indictment in December 2020.
