I just saw a post (deleted) Crop portion of string with PHP [closed] which was deleted by Gordon♦ but is shown as:

deleted by Charles, Gordon♦, Gordon♦ 1 min ago

How is it that one person (whether a mod or not) can vote twice on the same post?

    Let me guess, he voted to delete it before being a moderator and deleted it outright once he became one yesterday? – Bart Mar 13 '13 at 8:44

    Yup, there was 2 votes on it already. One apparently my own. I have undeleted and deleted it now, so it only says deleted by Gordon♦ now. – Gordon Mar 13 '13 at 8:55
  • Not surprised to see this come up; I have had the same thing appear on posts I act on since veing elected! – Andrew Barber Mar 13 '13 at 9:35
  • @AndrewBarber yup agreed – NullPoiиteя Mar 13 '13 at 9:39

    Hey that's not fair! I deleted this post myself - I just wanted something to see the "deleted by". I call "foul" on a spurious undelete by someone who I @Won't mention... i.stack.imgur.com/T9vug.png – Marc Gravell Mar 13 '13 at 15:46
  • @TimPost Even the mighty Google Translate doesn't know what language is that. – Mark Garcia Mar 19 '13 at 8:05

Because first delete vote by Gordon was before becoming a moderator. And second vote was after becoming a moderator. There are several cases in other Stack Exchange sites for close votes too.
E.g.

The explanation for this curious behavior is already explained by hims056; however, this duplication will not occur after the next build.
