Prosecutors have charged a woman with forgery for allegedly submitting 34 fraudulent petition signatures on behalf of Republican U.S. candidate Jon Keyser's campaign.
KMGH-TV reported Wednesday that Maureen Moss was in custody.
Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey said Wednesday Moss had been charged with 34 forgery counts. It wasn't immediately known if she had an attorney.
KMGH reported in May it had uncovered a number of forged signatures in petitions to qualify Keyser for the June 28 primary. Keyser deflected questions about the report before blaming Moss, the circulator who worked for a canvassing firm hired by his campaign
Keyser called Moss' alleged actions "unacceptable" Wednesday and said he looks forward to "justice being served."
