DescriptionA Chicago congressman running for re-election is under fire Wednesday accused of voter fraud.

CBS 2 Political Editor Mike Flannery reports, Dan Lipinski's opponent wants to know how Lipinski could have voted here in person when he was living somewhere else.

At the center of the dispute is a series of strange statements by Lipinski regarding whether and how he voted while he lived out of state teaching college.

“Once I moved to Tennessee, I did not vote in Illinois,” Lipinski said on a past “Public Affairs” show hosted by Jeff Berkowitz.

That is not what documents show, however, provided by the Chicago Board of Election.

Commissioners show that somebody cast an absentee ballot in Dan Lipinski's name in five of the six elections conducted between 1998 and 2002.
