Since I am both a responsible citizen of this land and really lazy, I already voted by mail last week. No thanks to straining my legs while standing in a long line as morons throw judgmental looks at my “I’m Voting For Angelyne 4 Prez” t-shirt. But some people, like Justin Timberlake, still go to polling places and since we’re living in the era of “Look At Me Doing Things” he posted a selfie of himself voting. The only problem with JT’s selfie is that he may have broken the law. “Imprison the loser and charge Crooked Hillary with accessory ” growled out Donald Trump after finding out that JT most likely voted for Hillary Clinton.
JT flew to Tennessee so he could vote early and posted that picture on Instagram. JT may be winking because he got something in his eye and that something may have been an invisible caca nugget that Uncle Sam shit on his face for breaking the law. JT also added this caption:
Hey! You! Yeah, YOU! I just flew from LA to Memphis to #rockthevote !!! No excuses, my good people! There could be early voting in your town too. If not, November 8th! Choose to have a voice! If you don’t, then we can’t HEAR YOU! Get out and VOTE! #excerciseyourrighttovote
TMZ says that last year, Tennessee passed a law making it illegal to take pictures or record voices while inside of a polling place. The NYDN says the law was created to “prevent voter fraud or intimidation and from revealing confidential information.” The Shelby County D.A.’s Office says that they know about JT’s voting selfie and they’re “reviewing” it. If they decide to charge JT and if he’s found guilty, he could get up to 30 days in jail and be forced to pay a $50 fine. An official from the polling place where JT voted says that he should be praised, not punished, for inspiring people to vote. UPDATE: The D.A. now tells TMZ that he never meant to say that he’s “reviewing” the selfie, because his office is not reviewing the selfie at this time. I guess the D.A. got a call from HILLARY!
JT is rich and famous so nothing is going to happen to him. But if states that have a similar law plan to enforce it, then they better quickie build more jail houses. Because nowadays, tricks can’t breath without taking a picture of said breath and posting it on Instagram. So there’s probably going to be many messes taking voting day selfies on November 8th. I mean, if you didn’t Snap yourself with the dog tongue filter while voting, did you really vote at all?
And here’s the selfie-taking voting rebel at the Trolls premiere in L.A. over the weekend:
