ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The U.S. Attorney’s Office has named a federal prosecutor to lead a Justice Department team responsible for handling complaints of election fraud and voting rights abuses in New Mexico during the general election.

U.S. Attorney Damon P. Martinez says Assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan M. Gerson will head the office’s efforts in connection with the Justice Department’s Election Day Program.

Martinez says the Justice Department will act promptly and aggressively to protect the integrity of the election process.

Federal law protects against such crimes as intimidating or bribing voters, buying and selling votes, impersonating voters, altering vote tallies and stuffing ballot boxes.
