(Washington Post) — Andi Pringle, the new deputy chief of staff to D.C. Mayor Vincent C. Gray, voted in the District’s primary election last year even though she had moved to Maryland. The voting irregularity was revealed Thursday by community activist Dorothy Brizill on the Web site dcwatch.com. Brizill is known as a government watchdog and is considered well-versed in election law. “Anyone who has been in the District for a long time is concerned about people voting from outside the city,” she said. “It came to have a name, as voting from Ward 9.” Brizill said that she routinely checks the voter registration of new government hires and that she was “somewhat shocked” to learn the information because Pringle and new chief of staff Chris Murphy wereannounced this week as a fresh start for the Gray administration.
