PHOENIX — Authorities said a Scottsdale man has been sentenced to one year of unsupervised probation and 160 hours of community restitution for false voter registration.
The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office said 38-year-old Alan Faygenblat electronically filed a fraudulent voter registration application with the county Recorder’s Office last September.
Faygenblat said he wanted to prove a point and show that the county’s voter registration process is flawed.
Prosecutors say Faygenblat falsely claimed he was currently a citizen of the United States and was born in New York.
By providing false information, prosecutors say Faygenblat was able to obtain a voter registration card and posted the details of his actions on social media.
They say an investigation confirmed Faygenblat was not a United States citizen, but rather a legal resident from Israel.
