TERRE HAUTE, IN. (ECWd) –
Jerome “J.D.” Kesler, Vigo County Indiana Emergency Management Agency (“EMA”) Deputy Director, Vigo County Sheriff Special Deputy and former Edgar County Airport Board Member was arrested and charged this morning in Vigo County, Indiana.
Kessler was arrested and charged with two Felony counts of “Voting Outside of Precinct Residence”.
A Vigo County Division 1 warrant for Jerome D. Kesler was issued today and he submitted himself to ISP at the Vigo County Jail, where he later bonded out on 10% of a $5000 bond. Kesler was charged with two counts of Voting Outside Precinct Residence, both Class D felonies.
According to WTHI, Kesler was suspended without pay from the Vigo County EMS position, no word on the Deputy position yet.
You may remember our previous articles (click here) on Kesler where we wrote about his alleged voter fraud with voting in Indiana at a time when his place of residence was in Edgar County, Illinois. We suspected at the time he allegedly committed the fraud in order to keep his job in Vigo County – which required residency.

Innocent until proven or pleads guilty. If that happens, all I can say is: Stupid is as Stupid does. What a foolish dumb ass !.

The better part of this story is that WTHI TV 10 News reported the efforts of Robert Bogue and the Edgar County Watchdogs in researching and bringing this problem to the Indiana State Police and the Indiana State Police took action. Good work WTHI TV and Indiana State Police.
