Why does this not surprise me?

From KGTV in San Diego:

It is now more than just mudslinging in the race for the 50th Congressional District.

Wednesday, the Democratic Party called for an investigation into allegations of perjury and voter fraud against Republican candidate Brian Bilbray.

Democrats said the proof is in property records from three homes and Bilbray?s declaration of candidacy.

These are serious allegations against a man who has run a campaign saying San Diego is and always will be his home.

The ad states San Diego is the home where Republican congressional candidate Bilbray said he lives.

"I live in Carlsbad, taking care of my mother," Bilbray said.

He said he has lived in the Carlsbad house since March 2005.

It is the address he used in his declaration of candidacy for the North County congressional seat.

Democrats said Bilbray does not live at that address.

"It was a convenient residence to use for this particular election since it is the 50th Congressional District," said County Democratic Party Chair Jess Durfee

In fact, there are serious questions about where Bilbray really lives.

Virginia property records show Bilbray claims a home in Alexandria, Va., as his primary residence, for tax purposes.
Oh, I remember. It's because Rick Santorum, my former senator, also lives in Virginia while serving as Senator for Pennsylvania. So this raises the Virginia delegation to four. Are there more out there?
Neighbors told 10News they rarely ever see Bilbray at the house, which is his mother?s home.

"He comes here occasionally to see his mother like boys will do, but he doesn't live here," said neighbor Frank Knudsen.

Another man, who lives right next door, said he wondered when people would catch on that Bilbray does not live here.
Right about when they figured out that Republicanism is ruining the country.

There is this nasty line at the bottom of all the candidacy forms Bilbray signed to run for this office.

"I certify under penalty of perjury under the laws of the State of California that the foregoing is true and correct."
