"Not Guilty" plea in alleged Voter and PFD fraud


 Not Guilty pleas for a 65–year old Nenana man, who authorities say has been voting under a false name in the past three general elections and lying on an Alaska Permanent Fund Dividend application.
Matthew Leewhenheuk faces a six count criminal indictment that includes three counts of First–Degree Felony Voter Misconduct.
The indictment states Leewhenheuk also goes by the name of Gary Fenstamacher, and lists a different birth date for the alleged alias.
State voting records show a record of a Matthew Leewhenheuk voting in the 2008, 2010 and 2012 general elections, while there is no record of a Gary Fenstamacher voting.
Leewhenheuk has asked that his case be moved to Nenana instead of Fairbanks due to transportation issues.
Trial in his case is set for late Spring.
