80 potential voter fraud cases in Iowa being reviewed

Posted: Updated:
DES MOINES (AP) -

A supervisor overseeing Iowa's criminal investigation into potential voter fraud says more than 80 cases are still being reviewed by local prosecutors.

Adam DeCamp, a special agent in charge with the Division of Criminal Investigation, said Monday that agents completed 245 investigations since September, resulting in 15 felony cases.

He says the DCI has referred findings in more than 80 additional cases to county attorneys' offices, and is awaiting decisions on whether more charges will be filed.

DeCamp says the investigation ended Feb. 13, but agents will help see through any prosecutions that are pending.

Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz said earlier this month that 26 people have been charged during the controversial two-year investigation. He said he'll issue a report next month detailing the findings.
