Democrat from NY fired for her fraud problems in Ohio

According to the Times Herald Records, Amy Little was fired by Congressman John Hall (D-Dover Plains, NY) after he learned she is/was embroiled in voter fraud investigations in Ohio. She was one of his long-time campaign advisers.
    NEW PALTZ — Congressman John Hall (D-Dover Plains) fired one of his long-time campaign advisers Tuesday, after learning that she’s embroiled in voter fraud investigations in Ohio.

    Amy Little, 49, has been a registered Democrat in New York since 1991, and Ulster County election officials said she voted in the party primary here in February.

    But in October, Little registered to vote in Ohio. On her registration paperwork, she indicated she moved from her home at 142 Guilford Schoolhouse Road in New Paltz to a place at 1979 N. 4th St. in Columbus, near Ohio State University.

    That Ohio address also doubles as headquarters for a grassroots get-out-the-vote group called Vote Today Ohio. The organization’s pro-Obama Web site says it targets “young people from campus/urban centers” and drives them to early voting sights in Ohio. The group also offers housing to out-of-town members.

    Franklin County Board of Elections officials said four people, including Little, registered from Vote Today Ohio’s address in October, just before the state’s deadline. Little requested an absentee ballot, which election officials said she has submitted.

    According to Ohio election laws, voters must reside in the state at least 30 days prior to the election and must intend to stay there after November.
She claims she lives in Ohio now, a fact I think she should have told her NY boss, just in case he wanted to keep his money circulating among New York Democrats. I know a lot of Columbus people who keep summer homes elsewhere, but not too many people keep winter homes in Columbus and live in other states. With our weather, that would be crazy. I thought most of the people caught here were "kids" i.e. early 20s going to school in Europe as "scholars," but apparently they needed a housemother and Nanny Little fit the bill. If she's just a consultant she's probably not eligible for unemployment to be extended and extended--you know, that economy thing? Wonder what the Obama people in the ACORN front group were paying her? It's not cheap to maintain a second residence.
