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?

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

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.

Tom
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........
