ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Secretary of State's office has turned a mentally challenged Albany man's voter fraud case over to the Attorney General's office for further investigation.

A Primus Industries worker took Jack Justice to vote in November without his family's knowledge. Justice says he wanted to vote for John McCain, but the aide chose Barack Obama. That aide, Henry Robinson, denied the claim. He was placed on administrative leave with pay but has since returned to work.

The Secretary of State's office says its difficult to determine exactly what happened because there were conflicting statements. But investigators found two other mentally challenged voters also say aides made their choice for them. In two cases, aides helped register them to vote which also raised questions about the aide's claim that the clients asked that they be taken to vote.
