Democrat Quits Maryland Race After Revealing She Voted in 2 States

A Democratic congressional candidate in Maryland allegedly voted in two states and announced her withdrawal from the race as a result, the Baltimore Sun reported.

Wendy Rosen, 57, who was running against Republican Rep. Andy Harris in Maryland’s 1st Congressional District, said she registered to vote in Florida to support a "very close friend" running for the St. Petersburg City Council and to vote on local issues there, the Sun reported. She voted in elections in both Maryland and Florida in 2006 and 2008 and said she was able to register in Florida because she owned property there.

Rosen was viewed as the underdog to Harris, who is serving his first term in Congress.

"I have been proud to serve as the Democratic Congressional Candidate of Maryland's 1st Congressional District for the last five months, so it is with great regret, and much sorrow that I must resign," she wrote, according to the Sun.

"Personal issues have made this the hardest decision that I have had to make."
The Maryland Republican Party told the Sun on Monday it was "happy to see Maryland's Democrats publicly agree that voter fraud is wrong."

"Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler and Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi should not only investigate but also prosecute Wendy Rosen to the fullest extent of the law," David Ferguson, the executive director of the state party, said in a statement, the Sun reported.

"I'm sure this means they will join us in an effort to purge the rolls across Maryland of illegal immigrants, the deceased, and those otherwise unqualified to vote," he said in the statement.
