Connecticut now investigating Coulter for voter fraud
Update (at bottom): BradBlog obtains complaint filed against Coulter
Ann Coulter is now the subject of a formal probe by Connecticut’s Elections Enforcement Commission, moving her closer to being charged with fraud.
The commission is now conducting a "thorough investigation" of whether the prolific conservative pundit broke the law earlier this decade by voting in Connecticut while living in New York City, a spokeswoman for the commission told the New York Daily News.
The media-centric publishing powerhouse voted in Connecticut in 2002 and 2004, even though she was living in New York City. In fact, Coulter bought a posh $1.49 million condo on the Upper East Side during that period, according to the Daily News.
But Coulter claimed on voting forms that she lived with her parents in Connecticut at the same time, Raw Story reported in January.
Connecticut officials are responding to a formal complaint filed by conservative Coulterwatch.com blogger Dan Borchers.
“For over 10 years, Ann Coulter has gotten away with illegal, immoral and unethical behavior, ranging from plagiarism to defamation, perjury to voter fraud,” Borchers has claimed.
The bestselling author declined to comment, the Daily News reported. She doesn’t deny living in New York City during the period in question.
Connecticut state staff attorney Theodore Bromley told a private investigator last month that a 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.”
