Wendy Rosen, a small-business owner running against freshman Rep. Andy Harris (R) in the Eastern Shore-based 1st Congressional District, released a statement saying that “with great regret, and much sorrow” she was resigning from the contest.
“Personal issues have made this the hardest decision that I have had to make,” Rosen said.
Personal issues? Yeah, like vote fraud:
Rosen’s announcement came the same day the state Democratic party released a letter to state Attorney General Douglas Gansler and state prosecutors reporting the allegations against Rosen.
“The Maryland Democratic Party has discovered that Ms. Rosen has been registered to vote in both Florida and Maryland since at least 2006; that she in fact voted in the 2006 general election both in Florida and Maryland; and that she voted in the presidential preference primaries held in both Florida and Maryland in 2008,” wrote Yvette Lewis, the state party chair. “This information is based on an examination of the voter files from both states. We believe that this is a clear violation of Maryland law and urge the appropriate office to conduct a full investigation.”
Not that Maryland Democrats are actually against vote fraud, you understand. Probably some Democrat got tipped off that Republicans had found out about Rosen’s double-registration, and so they dumped Rosen to prevent her from causing an October meltdown once the GOP blew the story open.
How many other Democrats from Maryland are also double-registered in Florida? Enough to tip a close election? Yeah, but never mind: No ID required! — because that would be racist.
