Where does Ann Coulter live? Is it New York City, which she gives as her address? Or is it New Canaan, Connecticut where her parents live… and where she voted in 2002 and 2004? The NY Daily News reports that Ann is being investigated for voting fraudulently at the behest of private investigator Joseph Culligan.
Property records put her home in New York City in 2003, on E. 82nd Street. We know this because she was sued for allegedly not paying her rent to the tune of $11,208 while buying a $1.5 million condo the same year. Yet she voted in New Canaan. Curious.
But hang on – Coulter was investigated for voter fraud before. In Florida. In 2006. Palm Beach County received a complaint that she knowingly voted in the wrong precinct while giving an incorrect address. It took nine months to clear her. Or is that what happened? Not really. The Palm Beach County Sheriff concluded that there was insufficient cause to determine if Coulter willfully violated voting laws. “Willfully.” So she did but not on purpose? Sounds legit, right?
One of her detractors thinks otherwise. He alleges that she did know and did violate voting laws willfully, lied about it repeatedly, hired an ex-Bushie to represent her and had an ex-flame who happened to be an FBI agent make it all go away. So claims blogger Brad Friedman. Between Friedman and Dan Borchers, Annie apparently has some tenacious enemies. She says that they are stalkers – the FBI doesn’t agree.
But this new complaint could be serious business. In a generic statement about voting, Connecticut state staff attorney Theodore Bromley said that
“…a registered Connecticut voter must list a residence address in the state where you actually live. It is not enough to claim a relative’s house where you may visit.” (source)
Let’s see… that’s three guys, Friedman, Borchers and Culligan, who apparently really have it in for Ann. Joan Andrews, of Connecticut’s Elections Enforcement Commission says that the state will investigate the claim only if they receive “a complaint under oath.” Now one of the three has filed such a complaint. We’ll have to wait and see if anything comes of it. But I, for one, would love to see Coulter finally get some comeuppance if she is indeed guilty of voter fraud. She’d look good in orange.
