Gemma O'Doherty is an Irish investigative journalist, known for her work in exposing alleged corruption in the country's criminal justice system and police force . . . was Chief Features Writer at the Irish Independent . . . She sought a nomination to stand for the presidency in the 2018 election . . .
Gemma O’Doherty joined us live to discuss receiving ‘votes’ across the country during the Presidential Election count and the birth of a new anti-corruption grassroots movement.
. . . the spoiled votes scrutinised at the Aura Lesiure Centre in Letterkenny had Ms O'Doherty's name on them and a box to the right of her name which was ticked in her favour.
Prior to Friday's vote a campaign group in Donegal called on people to spoil their vote in the election and indicate their support for Gemma O’Doherty in so doing. They claimed the undemocratic selection process denied Ms. O’Doherty the opportunity to run for President.
