Probe her hard

Hate her or ... hate her, Ann Coulter made some small yet tepidly agreeable news this past spring when we learned that she may have committed a felony by
knowingly giving an incorrect address on her voter registration form in Palm Beach, Florida, and then knowingly voting at the incorrect polling place.
She seemed to be practicing a typical Republican hypocrisy by actually voting while she concurrently held the opinion that women should "have to give up their vote." Or maybe she just meant every other woman but her. Who knows? It's a crazy jumble inside that head.

Nonetheless, the story came and went without much too much attention; it all seemed fairly mild relative to the extant debacles of the day. Well, the story has reimerged as the case will likely be turned over the state attorney's office in West Palm Beach. And so much for police state, tough-as-nails, hang 'em high Coulter. She is refusing to cooperate with the investigation.
Conservative columnist Ann Coulter has refused to cooperate in an investigation into whether she voted in the wrong precinct, so the case will probably be turned over to prosecutors, Palm Beach County's elections chief said Wednesday.

Knowingly voting in the wrong precinct is a felony punishable by up to five years in prison.

Elections Supervisor Arthur Anderson said his office has been looking into the matter for nearly nine months, and he would turn over the case to the state attorney's office by Friday.
The police state is for all those other people, not her.

Coulter appears not to have been very helpful in getting the issue resolved at all and Elections Supervisor Arthur Anderson claims that she engaged in "efforts to distract and divert focus on the process regarding this complaint. ..." In other words, she is exhibiting standard, generalized behaviour for Republicans. And at this point, I'm not entirely sure any Republican fixers will be all that keen on helping her out. She has become almost a complete pariah for conservatives lately. The RNC won't go near the nut, though she most certainly has her uses: she makes the current crop of congressional Republicans look like moderates.

I think it will be farily obvious what will happen next. Coulter, or her lawyer rather, will annouce that she is completely innocent of any charges that might result, the whole exercise is a politically motivated witch hunt (well, at least part of that will be right), and that all you goddamned, godless, sandal-wearing freak liberals can fry in hell.

Admittedly, this is a tiny snack, a potential scrap of justice that is hopefully only an appetizer to a much large course. But it is tasty all the same.

I am licking my lips over this one! I noticed on some Fox show a few months ago she dismissed the charges out of hand. Literally by flicking those monstrous talons of hers to one side as if compliance with the law is a thing for others, not for best selling authors.

My bet is that her defence will be her celebrity. I expect she'll claim a stalker or some other such rubbish forced her not to disclose her real address.

Does coulter really think women shouldn't vote? I've never listened to her for more than 5 minutes or read more than a paragraph or two of her writings, preferring not have my blood pressure go through the roof!

I ebt she thinks we should all be home, barefoot and pregnant, subservient to some man, while only she makes her own living and only she is smart enough to vote.

I'd better stop before I end up in the hospital......

Just found the quote to end all quotes:

"I think [women] should be armed but should not [be allowed to] vote. No, they all have to give up their vote, not just, you know, the lady clapping and me. The problem with women voting -- and your Communists will back me up on this -- is that, you know, women have no capacity to understand how money is earned. They have a lot of ideas on how to spend it. And when they take these polls, it's always more money on education, more money on child care, more money on day care."
-- Ann Coulter, Politically Incorrect, Feb. 26, 2001

That bitch is insane!!

I couldn't agree more. She is actually certifiably bonkers. Even Republicans are realising that she is loopy.

Told ya!

Yeah, Coulter has really gone off the deep end, lately. Her comments about poisoning a Supreme Court judge (Breyer) is her idea of a "joke." I don't think Coulter has any idea what a joke actually is. And she certainly doesn't recognize that she is one herself.

The story says that, if convicted of this paticular voter fraud, five years in a federal pen could await. Sweet! I doubt the case will ever get to that point, but it is always nice to dream. ...
