Rodriguez said she never sent a mail-in ballot and went to the Hidalgo County Elections Department to nullify it. Rodriguez said a woman came to her house and asked for her mail-in ballot. "She circled the names of the people with the group she was supporting. She told me 'you're going to vote for these three people,'" Rodriguez said.

Ohio Michael Anne Kyle Heather Halstead Joel Speyer Marc Gustafson Daniel Hemel Tania Kyle +7 others M 2008 General D Ineligible district voting 13 Michael Anne Kyle 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 were already registered in other states where they resided. *Plea deal: No charges filed http://republicanmichigander.blogspot.com/2008/10/rich-new-york-democrats-commit...
