Felony election fraud charges have been filed against a former Milwaukee County supervisor. The original complaint against Peggy Romo West was referred to the County Ethics Board. Sylvia Ortiz-Velez defeated Romo West in the April election. Ortiz-Velez had accused her opponent of failing to circulate nominating papers, despite certifying she had done so. Romo West lost the election by slightly more than 200 votes. She had a previous run-in with the Ethics Board for mising campaign work with county business.
