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. Democratic leaders who raised the allegations, urged Rosen to step aside and notified prosecutors said they would gather Central Committee members this month to identify a write-in candidate for the district, which includes the Eastern Shore and parts of Harford, Carroll, Cecil and Baltimore counties. Republicans, meanwhile, said the allegations prove that voter fraud is real and called on Democrats to join the GOP in calling for reforms. 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.

Where's the cry of 'racism'.
“she voted in two states”
Drunk and Sober?
“Democratic leaders who raised the allegations...”
Not sure the words democratic and leader can ever really be used in the same sentence.
But if they did “raise” allegations, it was obviously only just ahead of it becoming news...so, not really leading.
RATS love vote fraud. That’s the only way they win close elections.
Probably drunk and stoned.
Oh, it's a Democrat; can't mess with their voting Rights, and dis-enfranchise them.
Hey. She stepped down. She’s been punished enough. No need to investigate further. /sarc
“she voted in two states”
Jail time at the least, hanging at the best. Voter fraud steals every one’s freedom.
