New York man admits to rigging local elections in effort to develop real estate

By Ben Lane | Housingwire

In a federal court in New York this week, a New York man became the third member of a criminal conspiracy to admit to working to rig local elections as part of an effort to develop real estate in the area.

Last year, two New York real estate developers, Kenneth Nakdimen and Shalom Lamm, pleaded guilty to interfering with a mayoral election in Bloomingburg, New York, including using fake voters, to try to advance stalled construction projects.

Now, a third member of the conspiracy has also admitted to taking part in the scheme.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, Volvy Smilowitz, a/k/a “Zev Smilowitz,” pleaded guilty to conspiracy to corrupt the electoral process.
