Sheehan Registers To Vote In TX Illegally?

From our intrepid correspondent on site down in Texas, Crawford Activist, we have this photo of Cindy Sheehan at the local post office last Tuesday registering to vote in McLennan County:

Crawford Activist reports that Mother Sheehan then left Crawford late Tuesday afternoon to attend a conference in Seattle she is headlining.

Ms. Sheehan is supposed to return to Crawford Friday morning in time to protest the RNC fundraiser near the President’s ranch.

Then Cindy is off again to give a speech in Washington, DC on Saturday. It seems she just can’t resist those speaking fees.

But hasn’t our hero mother broken Texas law by registering to vote when she is not a Texas resident?

To be eligible to register in Texas, you must:

* be a U.S. citizen;
* be a resident of the county ;
* be 18 years old (you may register at 17 years and 10 months);
* not a convicted felon (unless a person’s sentence is completed, including any probation or parole)
* not declared mentally incapacitated by a court of law

In fact, to actually vote requirements in Texas require one to be a resident for at least thirty (30) days.

Perhaps Cindy is so dizzy from her relentless fasting she is confused about the state laws.

Of course I’m kidding. We all know Mother Sheehan, being a higher moral being, abides by her own set of rules in all things.

Including fasting and voting.


But perhaps Cindy Sheehan does actually intend to move to Crawford to live. She has put up this "wish list" on her website:


Bear in mind that Mother Sheehan is hereby soliciting for donations to her private residence, which is strictly against the IRS regulations for a tax exempt 501c3 "charity," which (God help us) GSFP is:

Exemption Requirements

The organization must not be organized or operated for the benefit of private interests, such as the creator or the creator’s family, shareholders of the organization, other designated individuals, or persons controlled directly or indirectly by such private interests. No part of the net earnings of an IRC Section 501(c)(3) organization may inure to the benefit of any private shareholder or individual. A private shareholder or individual is a person having a personal and private interest in the activities of the organization. If the organization engages in an excess benefit transaction with a person having substantial influence over the organization, an excise tax may be imposed on the person and any managers agreeing to the transaction.

But Cindy and her pals at the Veterans For Peace (also a 501c3 "charity") know all about soliciting for goods for themselves under the guise of charity. And to hell with the law.

As we’ve oft noted, the laws don’t apply to those who hate this country for a living.
