Benton Harbor City Commissioner Harold Hampton has been charged with forging a certificate of car insurance. This was his third arrest within the last couple of years. A St. Joseph Police Department Report says Hampton was pulled over on December 5, 2005 and could not produce proof of car insurance. Later that day, he went to a Berrien County Trial Court and showed Magistrate Steve Doak a fake State Farm Certificate of Insurance, the police reported. Hampton was charged on July 17, 2006.

Harold Hampton claims he was the person who initiated the fake charges of voter fraud
