Man Registers Dog To Vote
A dog is a man's best friend so this should be legal right? I know they are intelligent creatures, but the last time I checked I'm pretty sure dogs can't talk(Don't worry they can still bark pretty good). A man from Albuquerque, who did not want to be identified, said he has successfully registered his black Labrador to vote as a democrat.According to the Daily Mail, the man wanted to show exactly how easy it is for anyone or 'anything' to register to vote. After seeing a registration booth on the campus of the University of New Mexico, he decide to take action into his own hands. It couldn't have been that hard since all he had to do was come up with some false information.
Somebody should have verified this information and somebody should have come out and took a look at exactly who it was. I made up a birth date, and I made up a social security number and I had a voter registration card in my hand for Buddy two weeks later."
So if this man can register his dog(named Buddy), what is going to be next? Personally if somebody is going to try and register another animal, I would love to see someone try a hamster. In all seriousness though, the man said the system could potentially corrupt,
We're going to have a lot of people that are registered to vote that shouldn't be able to vote."
The man said he has no intention of voting under Buddy's name, but he probably could if he wanted to gain the upper hand in the voting polls. However, the Clerk's Office, where the dog received his voting rights, said what the man did was voting fraud. Ok.......I can see how this can possibly be breaking the law, but shouldn't you hold the people who didn't screen the information responsible?
