LISA KORBATOV VOTED


TWICE IN TWO SEPARATE
ELECTIONS, COUNTY SAYS
By Mina Riazi

L.A. County voter records indicate


that Board of Education member Lisa
Korbatov voted twice in elections in
2005 and 2008.
Our records indicated that the voter
appeared to have voted twice in the
same election on more than one occasion, said Aaron Nevarez, Executive
Assistant at the L.A. County RegistrarRecorder/County Clerks office. We
referred the matter to the District
Attorneys Public Integrity Division
and copied the Secretary of States
Investigative Services. At this point it is
in their court.
L.A. County voter records show that
a Lisa Kennedy Fisch (Korbatovs
maiden name), voter ID #1991544841,

cast ballots in the March 2005 and
November 2008 elections. Fisch was
first registered in 1984 at a North Bedford
Drive address known to be her parents
house.
However, a Lisa Kennedy Korbatov,
voter ID #19269062083, also cast a ballot
in the same elections. Korbatov first registered to vote in 2002 at a North Rodeo
Drive address known to be her home.
Pursuant to the California Elections
Code, voting twice is a crime which is punishable by jail time and a fine. The front

in the same election is a felony and constitutes a crime in the State of California.
The March 2005 ballot included a
Beverly Hills city council election and
the ultimately successful referendum on
building the Montage hotel. In that election, Lisa Kennedy Fisch cast a poll
ballot and Lisa Kennedy Korbatov voted
by absentee ballot. The November 2008
election included a presidential race that
first elected Barack Obama. The reverse
occurred in that election, with Fisch
voting by absentee and Korbatov voting
in the polls.
Voting history is tracked by vendors
who provide the information to candidates
who wish to target high-propensity voters
with campaign mail.
In a letter to the Weekly, Korbatovs
attorney, her husband Igor Korbatov,
denied the accusations.
Korbatov threatened the Weekly with
legal action if it published the story. He
refused to provide an affidavit under penalty of perjury from his client refuting the
charges.
