Minneapolis (KROC AM News) - A Minneapolis man is facing possible time in a federal prison after being convicted of lying to a grand jury about some election ballots.

A jury convicted 30-year-old Muse Mohamud Mohamed Tuesday and he will be sentenced at a later date.

U.S. Attorney Andrew M. Luger says Mohamed was called to testify before a grand jury regarding the use of the agent delivery process during Minnesota’s August 2020 primary election.

Records in Minneapolis indicated Mohamed had delivered ballots for the election as an agent for three voters. But the same voters testified that they did not know Mohamed and did not ask him to pick up and deliver absentee ballots for them.

Luger says Mohamed testified to a grand jury last October “that he received the absentee ballots from the voters themselves “

The jury was convened to investigate the agent delivery process that was in place for the 2020 primary election.

Luger says when Mohamed was told the voters gave statements that they do not know him and that they did not ask him or anyone for agent delivery of their ballots for the election, “he testified that he received the ballots from the voters.”

Mohamed is a brother-in-law to state Senator Omar Fateh of Minneapolis.
