Eleven fined in Bridgeport ballot case

(08/07/03) BRIDGEPORT - Eleven people have been fined for abusing absentee ballots during last year's Democratic primary for probate judge in Bridgeport.

In total, about $7,300 worth of fines were imposed on Wednesday by the state Elections Enforcement Commission. The fines stem from last September, when probate judge challenger Kevin Boyle tallied more machine votes than Probate Judge Paul Ganim, but lost because of a 3 to 1 absentee margin in Ganim's favor.

Mary Oleynick, a member of the Bridgeport Democratic Town Committee and a Ganim campaign volunteer, was hit with the largest fine of $5,000.
