WEST PALM BEACH, Florida (AP) -- 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.

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.

Coulter's attorney did not immediately return a call Wednesday. Nor did her publicist at her publisher, Crown Publishing.

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

Anderson's office received a complaint in February that Coulter voted in the wrong precinct during a February 7 Palm Beach town council election.

Anderson said a letter was sent to Coulter on March 27 requesting that she clarify her address for the voting records "or face the possibility of her voter registration being rescinded." Three more letters were sent to Coulter and her attorney, but she has yet to respond with the information requested, Anderson said.

In July, Anderson said, he received a letter from Coulter's attorney, Marcos Daniel Jimenez D'Clouet. The letter said the attorney would only discuss the matter in person or by telephone because, he complained, Anderson had given details to the media. Anderson said the matter had to be discussed in writing.

The right-wing commentator also authored a book that said some September 11 widows were "enjoying their husbands' deaths."

I've always felt that even among the rabid, this woman has been particularly rabid. And now, to not paticipate in the law of the land, shows her true sense of elitism. Her distain for the rules that the rest of us have to live by disgusts me.

And before anyone says that voting in the wrong precinct is no big deal... notice that it is considered a FELONY offense.

And she has the largest adam's apple of any woman I've ever seen.

BLOOMINGTON -- A Honduran woman will spend another 1? years in prison for the stabbing death of her boyfriend, despite a tearful apology and plea for forgiveness Tuesday morning.

“This wasn’t a couple of stab wounds,” District Attorney Patton said. “This was over 40 stab wounds to his face, neck and abdomen.”

The victim, a native of Guatemala, used a wheelchair because of polio. Medina said she and the victim lived together about two months before he moved to the United States, and he paid to bring her through Mexico and met her in Texas.......

..yeah.....5 years seems excessive for voting at the wrong precinct....but this a problem with our court system more than with the laws themselves

Kerry's an idiot. So I'm sure his comment's were just an honest mistake or "just a joke".

Anyways......Coulter is a loon. Plain and simple. Hillary and Coulter should be put on an island together. Both are loons. Would make for great reality tv.

I've always felt that Ann Coulter doesn't really believe what she says. It's more like she's made an industry out of being far whacked out reactionary and profited from it. Right, wrong, doesn't matter; buy my books, pay my appearance fees.

Noam Chomsky, Jimmy Carter and James Carville. I could go on, but I want to read some of the threads about the Steelers.

I dunno shark; if I were going to pick lefty mirrors of Ann Coulter I wouldn't start where you did. I'd probably start with Oliver Stone or Michael Moore. People for whom shock value is more important than truth. You may not agree with the people you've mentioned, but I don't think there's any question that for them the results are more important than the method. Coulter, Moore, Stone; those are people who get more mileage out of the manner in which the play is made.

As long as you aren't of an evangelical persuasion I dont think you have anything to worry about.

Its perfectly natural for men to find other men with blonde wigs attractive.

No.

Really.

Are you kidding, these are the easy picks. The ones I gave you show more intelligence.

Chomsky is nothing more then a very smart (MIT) socialist!

Carter, hell I put him in here becuase of what he says now not what he did as pres. As pres he did nothing other then have Home int rates at 15%! Worst Pres ever! You should agree Mosca.:cheers:

I think we're talking at cross purposes, shark. IMO Coulter and Moore are more concerned with calling attention to THEMSELVES. Abbie Hoffman would be another lefty example. Al Sharpton. Jesse Jackson. The beliefs are secondary to the show created. Say what you want about Chomsky, or Carter, or Carville; they aren't media *****s like Moore or Coulter. There are more like that on the right, but my intent isn't to argue with you. It's to show that there are people ON BOTH SIDES with a vested interest in keeping the waters roiled and muddy. Limbaugh, more concerned with hearing his own voice.

Sure, Carter was a poor president (so was Ford). But he acted out of a sense of service, not because he craved the spotlight. If anything he was TOO self-effacing for the job. So he wouldn't be a counterpart to Coulter, he doesn't fit with the group in question. He is "not of the set of rabble rousers".

That material cutting process sounds awfully long, I can only imagine the temptation you will go through just to take another illicit peek back at this thread.

What sort of world do we live in where a blonde wig can't totally affect our sexual radar?

Anyway, either im talking to myself here - or your knife got a little blunt and you had a to take a quick break... :wink02:

LOL... WOOF!

I'm not familiar with her, other than having heard her name. But again, it's not that people are extreme; there are people on both extremes whose views are heartfelt. It's the willingness to say anything just to get a camera or microphone turned on them that sets these people apart. Huffington wouldn't qualify simply because she's not in the news all the time, like these people are. Coulter writes books and gives lectures, but her real product is "Ann Coulter". Not true about Huffington.

I'm going to stop now, unless the discussion turns toward the original subject (Coulter's unwillingness to follow the law). I think I've made my point clear enough.

On the subject of the original post (and because I totally didnt see LLT's return to the thread) - do you think this Coulter woman would leak the fact she had voted in the wrong precinct in order to gain yet more publicity?

As someone pointed out earlier in the thread she must have gone to great lengths to commit this 'felony' crime - what would be her motivation?

Damn, I wrote a really long answer and then accidentally hit whatever key took me to the previous page, effectively deleting my post.

In a nutshell, she spends most of her time in NY, which has one of the highest state income tax schedules in the country. Florida has no state income tax, and she got a $25000 homestead tax exemption when she bought the house in 2005... but for either of those, she has to be a permanent resident of FL/Palm Beach County.

My guess is that she registered to vote in FL to prove residence, but probably didn't remember her address (which would be why she didn't want to fill out the change form; not knowing her address would be admitting she didn't live there). So she registered using her real estate agent's address, which she was using as a mail-drop for forwarding her mail to her NY address (no sense using the address of the home she owned down there, after all; no one lives there to forward her mail). She probably didn't realize that the addresses were in different precincts.

So, why? Greed. Money. And the reason she is fighting the charges is to cover up the larger crime of tax fraud. Her permanent residence is actually in New York, but she claimed residence in Florida to get the $25k homestead exemption and to pay no state taxes.

That's my take, anyhow.

Thanks for that Tom.

I have done the back-click thing before aswell and lost a large post (I even went back and forward a couple of times hoping against logic that it would just re-appear).

If she is trying to defraud the Govt out of tax dollars it would be nice to see her get her/his/its comeuppance.

You have to wonder why someone who spends so much time in the spotlight (a spot light she has brought on herself) would risk doing anything so illegal - I guess you pin pointed the reasons already.

Arrogance and greed.

I disagree, Ann doesnt actually go out and make movies that distort the truth. Moore and Stone are way out there, so Ann has to really bake something good to be in the same area code as the other two kooks.

Well, I guess Huffington's attempt at becoming California governor when Arnold won his first term should be thrown out. And her left wing blog, and her newspaper columns........
