Election Board Considers Prosecuting Party Switchers - Politics News Story - WEWS Cleveland: "CLEVELAND -- The Cuyahoga County Board of Elections is investigating whether any Republicans broke the law when they switched parties in the March 4 presidential primary to back the candidate that they perceived to be a weaker opponent for GOP nominee-in-waiting John McCain.
The board expects the results of the investigation March 31. The board wants to know if voters lied when they signed statements pledging allegiance to their new party.
About 16,000 GOP voters crossed over to vote for Democrats in the primary."
Never in my entire life have I heard of this being considered a crime.
