Wendy Rosen, the Democratic challenger to Rep. Andy Harris in Maryland's First Congressional District, which includes the Eastern Shore, has withdrawn from the race.
The Maryland Democratic Party said it demanded Rosen's withdrawal after discovering Rosen has been registered to vote in both Maryland and Florida since 2006 and has voted in both states in two elections.

In a statement, Yvette Lewis, chairman of the Maryland Democratic Party, said, “Today, the Maryland Democratic Party took immediate and decisive action and demanded the withdrawal of Wendy Rosen as nominee for U.S. Representative in the 1st Congressional District after allegations of electoral law violations were brought to our attention.

She needs to be indicted and imprisoned. I wonder how many thousands of Democrat activists have engaged in the same type of fraudulent conduct?

For once, I agree with you. She needs to be prosecuted for this crime.

Why do I get the feeling this won't be headline news?

Because it's an "isolated incident"

Well, Romney should follow the lead of some of the Pugs in 1998 (Clintongate) and do the same thing, since there's big time smoke that he committed voter fraud.

Default Dem withdraws from congressional race after admitting she voted in two states

Rosen says she registered in Fla. to support friend there



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.


It was unclear, however, whether she could remove her name from the ballot with the election less than two months away. Under state law, a candidate has until 70 days before an election to remove his or her name from the ballot. The deadline for the Nov. 6 election passed on Aug. 28.


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.


Under Maryland law, a voter here may not maintain registration in a second state if it allows the voter to participate in state or federal elections there, according to Jared DeMarinis, director of candidacy and campaign finance at the State Board of Elections.


State Democratic Chairwoman Yvette Lewis said an examination of voting records in Maryland and Florida showed that Rosen participated in the 2006 general election and the 2008 primaries in both states.
