GOP lost Coulter, Foley votes
At Raw Story:
Before Tuesday's midterm elections, Republican officials boasted that their "highly sophisticated get-out-the-vote operation" in the final hours would keep Congress in its control. But at least two "notorious" and high profile party members didn't do enough to aid the cause, a Florida newspaper reveals.
"Mark Foley, the former U.S. congressman in rehab for alcohol and sex-related problems, didn't send an absentee ballot request to the St. Lucie County elections office," Lambiet writes. "Conservative pundit Ann Coulter, accused of voting in the wrong precinct earlier this year, didn't cast her ballot, contributing further to the demise of the GOP in Congress."
"No 'I Voted' stickers for them," Jose Lambiet writes for the Palm Beach Post.
The Associated Press recently reported that Coulter's case will soon be turned over to prosecutors because of her refusal to cooperate with Florida election officials.
