    TPM article


    Wendy Rosen, a Democratic congressional candidate challenging Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD), withdrew from the race on Monday after the state party confronted her with evidence she voted in both Maryland and Florida in 2006 and 2008.

    Matthew Verghese of the Maryland Democratic Party told TPM that officials were alerted to the potential issue by someone within the party on Friday. After verifying the allegations by checking Rosen’s voter files, Verghese said, party officials confronted her on Monday morning after she returned from the Democratic convention in Charlotte. She offered her resignation shortly thereafter and the state party referred the allegations to law enforcement authorities.

      how this vindicates those involved in voter suppression.  Grrrrrrr.....

      Romney went to France instead of serving in our military, got rich chop-shopping US businesses and eliminating US jobs, off-shored his money in the Cayman Islands, and now tells us to "Believe in America."

        how would voter ID have prevented that?

        Living in Kyoto-06 (Japan), voting in RI-01, went to college in IL-01.

        on multiple felony counts and serving time, has nothing to do with the matter, because IOKIYAR.

        He voted after moving out of the district, after his divorce, but claimed his ex-wife's house as his residence. He ran for a local office that requires local residence, also claiming his ex-wife's house as his residence. So, more than just voter fraud, candidate fraud.

        Like Mitt, claiming that he had been a Massachusetts resident for political purposes, at the same time he had been a Utah residence for tax purposes, and in fact lived in Utah while getting Federal money to bail out the Olympics.

        But not something that Voter ID would have helped with. White just kept his old driver's license.

        Hey, Mitt! Thanks for ObamneyCare.

        •  Let's not forget Ann Coulter ... (0+ / 0-)

          ... who gave her publicist's address as her own on her voter registration form, cuz she didn't want her REAL address in the public records.

          Geez, Ann - why not?  :D
