Callaway and his associates purportedly paid individuals to serve as messengers for voters who wished to vote by mail. Instead of delivering the ballots to the voters, these messengers handed them to Callaway or his associates. Many of the collected mail-in ballots were fraudulently cast in the names of individuals who confirmed they did not vote in the 2022 general election.

Callaway has a prior conviction for bribery and orchestrating a sex sting against a political rival. Despite accusations of wrongdoing from losing candidates in past elections, he had not faced charges until now.

If convicted of election fraud, Callaway could face up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
