Only a week into the job, Washington, D.C. mayor Vincent Gray’s deputy chief of staff resigned from her position after admitting she committed what appears to constitute voter fraud. The resignation of Andrea “Andi” Pringle comes as several U.S. states initiate a much-needed crackdown on rampant electoral fraud.
Pringle acknowledged she voted in the September 2010 primary election in the District of Columbia even though she was residing at that time in Montgomery County, Maryland. The county abuts the District. In her resignation letter Pringle said she was quitting because she had “become a distraction from the important work of” Gray’s administration, the Washington Times reports.
Like Mayor Gray, Pringle is a Democrat. She was campaign manager for former Sen. Carol Moseley Braun (D-Ill.) when she ran for president in 2004. Barack Obama helped to elect Braun to the U.S. Senate in 1992 when he ran a successful get-out-the-vote effort for ACORN unit Project Vote.
As I write in my new book, Subversion Inc.: How Obama’s ACORN Red Shirts are Still Terrorizing and Ripping Off American Taxpayers, ACORN formally endorsed Jackson’s 1984 presidential run. That year, the group went even further, running the unregenerate shakedown artist’s campaign in New Hampshire. The voter fraud-prone ACORN, which stands for Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, was also deeply involved with the Jackson campaign in Arkansas and Michigan.
Ironically, Pringle worked on criminal justice issues when she was employed by radical left-wing philanthropist George Soros’s foundation, the Open Society Institute.
According to the public portion of her LinkedIn profile, Pringle also heads her own political consulting firm, Pringle Communications Group. The company’s charter was reportedly revoked by the District government in 2009.
Pringle was a “senior political advisor” for former New Mexico governor Bill Richardson’s 2008 presidential campaign. She held the same post at Sen. Mark Warner’s (D-Va.) political action committee, Forward Together PAC. She also served as deputy campaign manager for Howard Dean’s erratic 2004 presidential election campaign after Carol Moseley Braun dropped out of the race.
Whether Pringle will be prosecuted for the felony that could lead to a 10-year prison term or a $20,000 fine will reportedly be left to the District’s U.S. Attorney, Obama appointee Ronald C. Machen Jr.
Given the Obama administration’s almost total lack of interest in protecting the integrity of the ballot box, nothing is likely to happen to Pringle.
Perhaps as an inspirational voter fraud trailblazer she’ll even be rewarded with a post in the Obama administration or her own show on MSNBC.

America needs to know that ACORN is restructuring in time to help re-elect President Obama in 2012. Obama used to work for ACORN and represented the group in court as its lawyer. These radical leftists who use the brutal, in-your-face, pressure tactics of Saul Alinsky want to destroy America as we know it and will use any means to do it.
