Don Leeman - who represented Strafford District 23 until he resigned last week - allegedly tried to induce an employee in the Rochester Housing Authority to provide a letter containing false information regarding his residency after he was accused of voter fraud during the February presidential primary.

He is also accused of offering the same employee a "substantial donation" in return for expediting his transfer to a different housing authority.

He was released on $50,000 personal recognizance and will be arraigned on June 15 in the Strafford County Superior Court.
