Some 46,000 New Yorkers are registered to vote in both the city and Florida, a shocking finding that exposes both states to potential abuses that could alter the outcome of elections, a Daily News investigation shows.[...]
Computer records analyzed by The News don’t allow for an exact count of how many people vote in both places, because millions of names are regularly purged between elections.
But The News found that between 400 and 1,000 registered voters have voted twice in at least one election, a federal offense punishable by up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.[...]
Of the 46,000 registered in both states, 68% are Democrats, 12% are Republicans and 16% didn’t claim a party.
Wonderful. We’ve got hundreds of criminal snowbirds who will vote for morbidly-obese Congressman Jerrold Nadler in New York via absentee ballot, and then they will vote again for serial-liar John Kerry for President in the toss-up state of Florida.
This kind of corruption, as usual, benefits the Democrats.
But, hey. If Florida has another close-call, you can bet the Dems would rather disenfranchise military personnel in Iraq than dangerous felons or New Yorkers voting twice in two different states.
Hopefully, it won’t be close enough for them to attempt to steal another election.
