(CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER) The Ohio Republican Party on Thursday filed a complaint with Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost that alleges the Democratic Party’s congressional candidate in Ohio’s 14th congressional district - Painesville attorney Hillary “Toro” O’Connor Mueri - illegally voted in both Ohio and California during the 2008 presidential primary.
The complaint states that Mueri, who received her law degree from the University of San Diego, was registered to vote in both states in 2008. It says she voted in California’s Democratic presidential primary in the San Diego area on February 5, 2008 and also cast an absentee ballot in Ohio’s March 4, 2008 presidential primary, citing a Concord Township residence.
A statement from Mueri said cleveland.com’s inquiry about the complaint was the first she’d heard of it.
