The US Attorney's office in Boston reports state Rep. Steve Smith today admitted to voter fraud - he filled out absentee ballots with his name checked off.
Smith served on the legislature's Joint Committee on Election Laws.
Smith won't serve any prison time on the federal misdemeanor charges, but will give up his seat - which should give him more time to deal with his tenements in Revere.
