NEW: Woman Claims She Was Part of Voter Fraud Scheme in 2002
Friday, August 31, 2012
A woman claiming she was paid under the table to work for Congressman David Cicilline during his 2002 Mayoral campaign accused Cicilline of committing voter fraud during a radio interview on WPRO this afternoon.
Cicilline won a four-way primary with just over 50 percent of the vote.
Cicilline campaign manager Eric Hyers said the claims are “part of an ongoing and desperate smear campaign” by Congressional candidate Anthony Gemma.
“After 2 weeks of witnessing a string of unsubstantiated claims, absolutely nothing that comes out of the Gemma campaign is remotely credible,” Hyers said. “In five hours, the Republicans will nominate Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, both of whom Brendan Doherty enthusiastically supports, to lead the most radical and extreme agenda in recent memory, and this circus is distracting from the harm this agenda will do to Rhode Island's middle class, women, and seniors. Voters deserve a substantive discussion of the issues.”
Separately, a paid campaign worker for Gemma took to the John DePetro Show this morning to clam she was the woman hiding in her attic because she was in fair of the Providence Police. The Providence Journal later reported that she was arrested in 2010.
