If you're facing possible criminal charges but also want to be an elected official, don't worry! There's a good chance voters will support you anyway. Here are winners of the 2014 elections who could be going to jail soon:
* Rep. Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.) was re-elected by his Staten Island constituents despite a 20-count federal indictment for tax fraud and an incident of threatening to throw a reporter off a balcony.
* Democratic New York Assemblyman William Scarborough won his seat in Queens again after running unopposed — despite being accused of stealing $40,000 from the state government by lying about travel expenses.
* Alabama State House Speaker Mike Hubbard (R) got 60 percent of the vote despite felony ethics charges for using his position to line his own pockets.
* Democratic State Sen. John Sampson of Brooklyn took home a whopping 86 percent of the vote even though he's going to trial in February — and facing a 100-year prison term — for multiple charges relating to embezzlement and obstruction of justice.
* Also in New York, GOP State Sen. Thomas Libous won his election and will go to trial next year over accusations that he lied to the FBI.
* A Kentucky sheriff named Jamie Kinman was indicted on Monday, the day before his election, for allegedly tampering with evidence. His election results are not online as of this writing.
