Web Letter

I recently heard about a woman who is being prosecuted for registering her dog to vote. She wrote "VOID" on the ballot that she submited, so she did not break any laws or commit any fraud.

She was trying to demonstrate how easy it is for illegal immigrants to vote. She is unlike the 99 percent of Americans who constantly complain about what is wrong with this country, but don't do anything to fix it. She saw a flaw in our system, and found a non-violent way to bring it to the attention of those in a position to do something.

This is the action of a real patriot. But now she is being punished for her patriotism. Please help this woman (who is also a veteran) by giving her your support.
