Ohio Heather Halstead Joel Speyer Marc Gustafson Daniel Hemel Tania Kyle Michael Anne Kyle +7 others 2008 General D Ineligible district voting 13 Heather Halstead was one of a group of wealthy/politically connected individuals, mainly New York Democrats, who admitted they set up a temporary house in Ohio and then voted in that battleground state. The New Yorkers and nine individuals from around the country admitted they should never have registered in Ohio. As part of a deal* with prosecutors, the 13 apologized and claimed they had "misunderstood" the state's voting rules. "Without reservations, we apologize to the community [and] for the problems this misunderstanding has caused," said Greg Nolan, spokesman for activist group Vote from Home. The group is run from the East 82nd Street brownstone of Heather Halstead, daughter of Halstead Properties founder Clark Halstead. Halstead and her husband, Marc Gustafson - along with Bank of New York Mellon exec Joel Speyer and former New York Sun reporter and Scarsdale resident Daniel Hemel - and their friends were investigated after they crammed into a three-bedroom house in Columbus and registered to vote. All of them cast Ohio ballots, even though they are already registered in New York. *Plea deal: No charges filed http://republicanmichigander.blogspot.com/2008/10/rich-new-york-democrats-commit...

Connecticut Lonnie Reed F 2005-11 Ineligible district voting A complaint was brought against Lonnie Reed alleging that she was not a resident of the town where she cast her ballot. Reed sold her Branford home, where she had lived for 25 years, seven days before an election and was living at the home of friends who lived in the same town. Although she tried to buy a home in the same district, she ultimately moved to an address in District 4. The Connecticut Elections Enforcement Commission investigation concluded that because Reed had the intention of buying a house in District 5 at the time of the election, she was not guilty of fraud. The complaint was dismissed. Dismissed http://seec.ct.gov/e2casebase/data/fd/2007_158.pdf
