Bush Wins Iowa - Why?

Notary pleads guilty

A fourth person has pleaded guilty in Sioux Falls to improperly notarizing absentee ballot applications during a Republican Party "Get Out the Vote" effort.

ERIC FAHRENDORF OF Sioux Falls was fined $200 and given a suspended 30-day jail sentence after his guilty plea Wednesday.

Six GOP workers resigned last month after questions surfaced about some absentee ballot applications collected at college campuses.

Officials say the workers notarized applications collected by others, violating a law that requires notaries to witness documents being signed.
