COLUMBUS, Ohio - A central Ohio elections board inquiry has found no evidence that Democrats backing President Barack Obama's re-election bought votes with pizza.
The Ohio Republican Party alleged in a complaint last week that free pizza handed out at early-voting rallies hosted by Democrats and the Buckeyes for Obama student organization violated a law prohibiting something of value to be exchanged for a person's vote.
In a letter Tuesday, directors of the Franklin County Board of Elections said they visited two of the group's Ohio State University events and found no evidence of wrongdoing.
Democrat William Anthony and Republican Dana Walch said a few students "did help themselves to a few slices of pizza" but officials never heard anyone say the students had to vote a certain way.
