No Voter Fraud, Eh?

Wendy Rosen

A while back I beat down on Bill Galston, otherwise a thinking man’s liberal, for dismissing the thought that voter fraud was an issue worthy of discussion or prophylactic remedy.  Well how about Maryland’s first congressional district, where the Democratic candidate, Wendy Rosen, has withdrawn because she committed vote fraud herself, having voted in both Maryland and Florida in at two recent elections:

Wendy Rosen, the Democratic challenger to Republican Rep. Andy Harris in the 1st Congressional District, withdrew from the race Monday amid allegations that she voted in elections in both Maryland and Florida in 2006 and 2008. . .

Rosen, 57, a Cockeysville businesswoman and Maryland voter, told The Baltimore Sun that she registered to vote in Florida several years ago in order to support a “very close friend” running for the St. Petersburg City Council and to vote on local issues there.

Rosen said she was able to register in Florida because she owned property there. . .

Asked by The Sun on Monday if she had voted in both states in the same elections, Rosen said she did not remember how she voted. Asked if she had voted twice in the 2008 presidential primaries, she declined to comment “due to possible litigation.”

Too bad.  Sounds like Ms. Rosen was the perfect Democratic nominee for Congress.
