The by line of WPB is priceless. It wasn't a bunch of old folks who accidently voted wrong for Buchanan, it was that dumb bitch Coulter in the wrong fucking precinct. If she is convicted, I'll GLADLY settle for 'mere' community service, and have the press and every interview she has after that open with 'convicted columnist...'
Nothing like a criminal conviction to mess up your credibility huh Ann?

So you are for voting reform also, Ted? Nice. No more dead people voting? No more non-citizens voting? Nice. You and I are on the same page.

So no one is willing to consider she simply made a mistake? According to the article, it is only a crime if she voted in the wrong precint intentionally. Where were the poll monitors who are supposed to prevent this sort of thing?

It's been my experience that when a person, in this case Conservative columnist Ann Coulter, is suspected of committing a crime and they "refuse to cooperate in an investigation", chances are pretty good they've got something to hide. You don't think the fact that she's been dodging correspondence from the elections supervisor's office for 9 months looks suspicious?

When she registered to vote, she used her realtor's address rather than her own. That's fishy in itself. But then she went on to vote in a different precinct, even after being warned by an election official.
When the news media published a report about it, she claimed the reporters were "all retarded" and accused Palm Beach officials of having sexually transmitted diseases.

I think she has spent the bulk of that time promoting her latest book and neglecting the mail. As with so many other things, I think it is important to wait for the rest of the facts before we construct the gallows. What I am suspicious of is those who are in a rush to convict.

If you are right, and I don't believe you are, then she has made a very very poor choice in priorities. Instead of using that time to promote her book, maybe she should have taken the time to respond to a 9 month long investigation that could land her ass in jail for 5 years.

So much for the fifth amendment. BTW what did Hillary and Bill have to hide, along with Ron and Nancy, and a multitude of other individuals then? Must be some kind of dirty laundry there if they refuse to exchange letters.
I would have thought with the large Cuban population, some of which know little if any english, that you would be able to vote just about anywhere you want to in the state of Florida as long as you had a valid drivers license. This law seems awfully out of date.

Quoting Vikkyvik (Reply 20): I don't hate her. I just think she has the wrong idea about, hmmm, everything. Actually, I don't hate any politician/commentator. I just think they have a lot of erroneous ideas.
Which is a healthy attitude. I personally don't even know her ideas about anything, I've never read her books, and only seen her a few times on some talking heads programs.
I just don't understand people who cannot discuss political ideas without personal insults and hatred.

From the source article:
Quote: 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.
A bit odd on the part of Mr. Anderson there?
25 Lowrider: No, but another poster questioned what she had been doing for the past 9 months. I seem to recall she recently had a book come out. Does anyone know
26 Itsjustme: Gee, I could swear this thread was about Ann Coulter facing possible felony charges and prison time. Guess I misread the thread title.
27 RichardPrice: Things said in person or on the phone can be easily disputed, things placed in writing cannot.
28 AerospaceFan: So, because Ann Coulter wrote political pieces that people disagree with, it's a good thing for her if she went to jail? Why?
29 RAPCON: And she'll get it reduced to a misdemeanor and a couple of hundred $$ as a fine. "Up to" means that the judge can go from $0 to "up to".
