FRIDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2002

A woman who was fired by the South Dakota Democratic Party denied charges of fraud over thousands of Indian voters she registered in the state.

Becky Red Earth-Villeda made a phone call to public television, according to The Sioux Falls Argus Leader. She said an ongoing investigation was a ploy to prevent Native Americans from getting to the polls.

The state party fired Red Earth-Villeda after uncovering irregularities surfaced in counties located on or near reservations. State, local and federal officials are investigating voter registrations and absentee ballots.
