You Can't Say That in Court - The Republican Dog
« on: August 09, 2004, 02:35:24 PM »
To show how lax the voter registration process is, a man registered his dog as a Republican.  For two years the dog received campaign literature and the like.  When he received a summons for jury duty, the mongrel refused to serve, and that's when the "voter fraud" came to light.  The man, not the dog, got into trouble.  He could have gone to jail for 6 months for his prank.  Instead, a fine and stern warning were his punishments.

[Bad dog! ... should have been a Democrat] :P

Who did the dog vote for in 2000?
