After confessing to what appears to constitute voter fraud, high-level Democratic Party insider Andrea “Andi” Pringle has abruptly quit her post as senior aide to Washington, D.C., mayor Vincent Gray.
The resignation comes as several U.S. states initiate a crackdown on voter fraud. It also comes weeks after it was reported that Lessadolla Sowers, a member of the executive board of the Tunica County, Miss., NAACP, was sentenced to five years in prison for voting 10 times in the names of other people.
Barely a week into the job, Pringle, who was Gray’s deputy chief of staff, resigned her recently position after admitting she voted in the September 2010 primary election in the District of Columbia even though she was residing at that time in neighboring Montgomery County, Md. In her resignation letter Pringle said she was quitting because she had “become a distraction from the important work of” Gray’s administration, as local media in the nation’s capital have reported.
“The tired old refrain we keep hearing from the Left is that voter fraud is a myth, but in fact it is fairly common crime,” said Matthew Vadum, author of the explosive new book Subversion Inc.: How Obama’s ACORN Red Shirts are Still Terrorizing and Ripping Off American Taxpayers.
ACORN’s Project Vote even released a report a few years ago called “The Politics of Voter Fraud,” which claimed that voter fraud is a myth. “The claim that voter fraud threatens the integrity of American elections is itself a fraud … [that] is being used to persuade the public that deceitful and criminal voters are manipulating the electoral system.”
…In an ironic twist, Pringle worked on criminal justice issues when she was employed by radical left-wing philanthropist George Soros’s foundation, the Open Society Institute.
