All three are registered Democrats. Leache filed a no-excuse absentee application on Oct. 29, 2008, as well as voted at the polling place on Martin Luther King Boulevard in Raleigh on Nov. 4. Leache later admitted to authorities that she did vote twice in the presidential election. Hodges and McLean both each participated in early voting at Chavis Heights Community Center in Raleigh and later voted on Election Day at their local polling place. They also admitted to the charges. All three have been placed under a $10,000 bond. The Wake Board of Elections uncovered the fraud and turned it over to the Wake County DA and got the SBI involved to investigate.||http://abc11.com/archive/8301269/||http://commentarama.blogspot.com/2011/08/democrats-convicted-of-voter-fraud.html|
