Jane Balogh wanted to prove a point that it's easy to illegaly vote in our elections. To prove this point, Jane registered her dog, Duncan McDonald, to vote in a King County, Washington election. It only took a fake utility bill and Duncan's paw print. A few weeks later a registration card arrived for her dog and he was ready to vote! She filled out the ballot, signed it with Duncan's paw print and off it went.
Jane said it took a little while for them to notice, but they finally did. She received a call from an elections worker. Jane said, "She said, 'you can't sign with a paw.' I said, 'you can if you're a dog.' There was a long hesitation. She said, 'it's a dog?' I said 'yes,'"
Unfortunately, Jane's little "point" has gotten her into a bit of trouble. She's been charged with a misdemeanor for election fraud. If she pleads "not guilty" they could charge her with a felony.
Jane said that to this day Duncan is still listed as a registered voter.
Shit, Duncan probably knows a lot more about the candidates and measures than most voters. Duncan just wants the same rights as all of us, but my question is how can he vote if he can't even see! He has hair all up in his eyes! Duncan is a hot bitch.
