VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — 10 On Your Side has confirmed that Rep. Scott Taylor has been subpoenaed in an alleged forged signature case.
Two former staffers of Taylor are accused of putting fake names on a petition to get Shaun Brown — who ran as a Democrat against Taylor in 2016 — on the November ballot as an independent.
The State Democratic Party filed a lawsuit in mid-August asking for Brown not to appear on the ballot.
A source confirms Congressman Scott Taylor has been subpoenaed in the forged ballot case to be heard in a Richmond Circuit Court. Since it is a civil proceeding not criminal and Taylor is in session it is unsure whether he will attend the hearing. @WAVY_News— Andy Fox (@AndyFoxWAVY) September 4, 2018
The alleged forgery case is being heard in Richmond.
