Giuliani pal Lev Parnas has permission to vote on Election Day



A federal judge granted indicted Rudy Giuliani crony Lev Parnas permission on Monday to vote in-person on Election Day.

His lawyers asked in a court filing on Friday to modify the terms of his pre-trial release so he could “travel to his local polling place on November 3, 2020, in the company of his two sons, Aaron and Daniel, to vote.”

U.S. District Judge Oetken agreed.

Parnas was released to home detention on a  $1 million bond after his 2019 indictment alleging he’d illegally funneled campaign contributions to pro-Trump super PACs and politicians.

He was later hit with additional charges for bilking nearly $2 million from investors in his company Fraud Guarantee, which had paid Giuliani as a consultant.

Parnas was indicted in the Southern District of New York alongside three co-defendants — David Correia, Igor Fruman and Andrey Kukushkin. Correia has since pleaded guilty.

Prior to their arrests, Guiliani allegedly enlisted Parnas and Fruman to dig up dirt on Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, who had been a board member of Ukrainian energy company Burisma.
