Give her a Medal of Honor

...for exposing how ridiculously lax most voter registration laws are:

King County Elections Director Sherril Huff has removed Duncan M. MacDonald, from the voter rolls. No, he is not a felon or been declared “non compos mentis” (second item). He is a Canine American. Jane Balogh, 66, had registered her dog to vote in April 2006 to protest a state voter-registration law passed the previous year that she contends makes it too easy for noncitizens to vote because the ID requirements are extremely lax.

How lax are they?

They are so lax that Balogh put her phone bill in Duncan’s name, then used it as ID to register him as a new voter.

How lax are they?

They are so lax that Balogh returned mail ballots in two elections with paw prints on the signature line (she wrote “void” on the ballots to ensure they wouldn’t be counted).

How lax are they?

They are so lax that even “[a]fter telling an election worker last November that Duncan is a dog … he received a ballot for a Federal Way school bond vote in May,” reports The Seattle Times.

Balogh has pleaded not guilty to a gross misdemeanor charge of making a false statement to a public official by signing a declaration in Duncan’s name saying he was over 18 and a U.S. citizen. If convicted, she can be imprisoned for up to 90 days and fined $1,000.

My fave local radio station had her on, and us callers wanted to help her with her legal costs. Being the type of individual she is, she wouldn't accept the donations but wanted the $$ to go to a charity. Yep, she's a horrible person.

They're just ticked because she exposed those asshats for the morons that they are. I hate this area.

Good for her. She showed up those who purportedly believe in 'fair elections'. 'Fair' means maximum number of Democrats (and their pets) voting in an election.
