GOSHEN – Orange County
District Attorney David Hoovler is going to investigate the voter registration
of Monroe Town Justice Lurlyn Winchester.
She was arrested on Wednesday by federal authorities on charges of making
false statements to a mortgage lending business and impeding, obstructing
or influencing the investigation.
Winchester, 58, was elected a Monroe town justice while living in New
City. She reported that she was living at a Monroe address and registered
to vote with the Orange County Board of Elections.
Base on that transaction, Hoovler said on Thursday that his office is
investigating. Orange County Democratic Elections Commissioner Susan Bahren
said she would communicate with the state Board of Elections to determine
what cause of action the local office should take.
