She’s Baa-aack: Coultergeist In the News

Brian Zick

Brad Friedman at The Brad Blog has obtained copies of documents cited in a report by the Palm-Beach Post's Jose Lambiet, which detail that Ann Coulter could be facing two third degree felony counts, along with one first degree misdemeanor if she is charged. Lambiet has called attention to Palm Beach Election Supervisor Arthur Anderson, who asked the Palm Beach Police Department for help investigating allegations that Coulter violated the law, nearly a year ago, by voting in the wrong precinct. After Anderson asked the Palm Beach PD for help, the department issued a three-page report last month hinting at troubles ahead for the law-and-order Coulter. According to the report, she could end up charged with: one felony count for signing a voter form claiming she lived at her Realtor's Indian Road home instead of her Seabreeze Avenue homestead; one felony count for "unauthorized possession of a driver's license," also for providing the same wrong address when obtaining her license; and a misdemeanor for knowingly voting in the wrong precinct. The report's author, Capt. Elmer Gudger, concluded his agency didn't have jurisdiction because government clerks working outside the town signed off on the paperwork leading to the two potential felonies.
