In May 2007, I noted Florida newspaper accounts concerning a criminal investigation underway targeting G.O.P. columnist Ann Coulter for falsification of her Palm Beach County voter registration. The case was finally dropped when a high level FBI agent (and alleged former boyfriend?) intervened on her behalf. Now the New York Daily News reports that Coulter is once more the target of a voter fraud probe:
Connecticut’s Elections Enforcement Commission is making a “thorough investigation” of whether the conservative pundit broke the law by voting in the Nutmeg State while living in New York City, according to a commission spokeswoman. Officials are responding to a formal complaint filed by 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,” claims the conservative Borchers. Coulter declined to comment, but in the past has branded Borchers a stalker. He says the FBI has determined he poses no threat.
