(Pittsburgh Tribune-Review) Butler County discovered it issued a voter registration card in 2008 bearing a name just one letter different from Barack Obama‘s, even though a fact check showed the application contained bogus information, officials said.

County detectives are trying to track down the applicant, who could be charged with a felony or misdemeanor, including perjury and making a false affidavit, which are punishable with jail time and fines, Butler County Detective Scott Roskovski said.

Butler County Jury Commissioner Jon Galante discovered the fake registration last week when a questionnaire used to find potential jurors was addressed to be sent to “Barack H. Obana” at a Slippery Rock University address.
