For the Fox News voter fraud unit now and it's a doozy a congressional candidate forced out of the race by allegations of voter fraud.
The Maryland Democratic Party says their candidate for the first congressional district.
Voted in two different states in the same elections.
Those could be felonies.
She is Wendy Rosen the Democrat who was facing incumbent Republican congressman Andy Harris.
-- allegedly registered to vote in both Maryland and Florida.
And cast ballots in both states in the 2006.
And 2008 elections.
She has dropped out of the race citing personal issues the Baltimore Sun reports quote.
Rosen told the paper she registered to vote in Florida several years ago in order to support a very close friend.
Running for the Saint Petersburg City Council and to vote on local issues there.
Asked by the -- 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 quote due to possible litigation.
-- -- now is David Ferguson is the executive director of the Maryland Republican Party you know David this is really unbelievable and and a candidate for congress.
Apparently voting and in two different states and the same elections.
How could this happen.
Well it she wanted to help out her friend and Florida she shares that are campaign contribution.
That's what most people do instead she tried to steal the right to vote away from somebody else and it's unfortunate.
And then she decided she wanted to be the model citizen for the first congressional district in Merrill or now the Florida officials are investigating what's going on -- Marilyn.
The voter file has been sent to -- State's attorney in Florida.
And hopefully both.
-- body in Florida there attorney general and -- chancellor of the -- joined Maryland.
When -- only investigate.
But also prosecute when -- risen to the fullest extent the wall -- that there really take this seriously emir of Fox News we found a photo apparently voted twice in 2010 by absentee ballot in one county and then in person.
Nothing ever happened with that -- in New York Daily News 2004 found -- what 46000.
People registered in new York and Florida I mean.
If they don't -- -- seriously.
And fortunately it's not taken as seriously as the problem.
Really gets to me -- systemic it's not partisan.
But it's simple you know one person one vote.
How do you think they can stop this.
Well I think first off taking the prosecution seriously -- -- there's been recent investigations.
And charges brought in Pennsylvania.
In other states you have places like union town Alabama where you have.
More people voting -- -- of registered age population.
And so this is Tom that we start taking voter fraud in election integrity seriously.
Do you think you know voter ID is a big issue where in Pennsylvania this past week waiting for that decision by the State Supreme Court.
Could this have been something that maybe being a voter ID or the assistant -- stopped if they found out if she did indeed vote twice in the same election in two different states.
Well I think voter ID is a good first step because that's.
The last place -- you show your identification before you actually except the balance I think that's an extra step of verification.
But the problem is systemic it's not partisan it's an all fifty states.
And this Tom that we start looking yet.
People's national change of addresses from the the Postal Service is timely look at the Social Security Administration -- for death records it's -- we start.
A lot stop allowing people on the senators are voting it'll stop allowing people to vote -- Just for a political advantage.
Where we don't have soldiers dying overseas to protect their right to -- twice.
Well there's an investigation.
Now ongoing and will keep on this case David Ferguson of American Maryland Republican Party thanks so much is always.
