Congressman McHenry’s Campaign Aide Indicted
Posted by Michael Rey

By Laura Strickler and Michael Rey
The CBS News Investigative Unit has learned a man who was a field
coordinator in Congressman Patrick McHenry’s (R-NC) 2004 campaign has
been indicted for voter fraud in North Carolina.

The indictment charges that Michael Aaron Lay, 26, illegally cast his
ballot in two 2004 Congressional primary run-offs in which McHenry
was a candidate. The charges indicate that Lay voted in a district
where it was not legal for him to vote.

At the time Lay was listed as a resident in a home owned by
32-year-old McHenry but campaign records indicate Lay’s paychecks
were sent to an address in Tennessee. McHenry won the primary by only
86 votes. According to Gaston County, North Carolina District
Attorney Locke Bell, Lay was indicted on Monday, May 7 by a local
grand jury.
