Cody Tims was sent a voter application in Atlanta, Georgia. Will he fill it out and vote?
The prospects for this happening are a tad dubious, since Cody Tims is – actually was, a cat. And he has been dead for 12 years.
From Tauren Dyson’s article at newsmax.com:
A family in Atlanta received a voter application for the dead cat Cody Tims, who died 12 years ago.
“We have a voter registration application for Cody Tims,” Carol Tims told Fox 5 of Atlanta. “How did this happen? It’s not reality, he’s a cat and he’s been dead for a long time.”
“There’s a huge push but if they’re trying to register cats, I’m not sure who else they’re trying to register,” Tims said. “I’m not sure if they’re trying to register dogs, mice, snakes.”
The article goes on to say that The Office of the Georgia Secretary of State denies sending the late Mr. Tims that application…but points out that “third-party groups all over the country are targeting Georgia to help register qualified individuals”.
Assuming this did not come from the relevant Atlanta agency (that’s a claim, not a demonstrated fact), which third-party group do you figure sent Mr. Tims his application? The ASPCA? PETA?
And, on a more serious note, how many applications like this do you figure are received…and filled out by people attempting to get their candidate an extra vote? How many go through?
Anyone who thinks voter fraud doesn’t happen in the United States is about as mentally active as the late, lamented, four-legged Cody Tims.
