  • Madonna – Felon

    Posted by TM Lutas on October 19th, 2016 (All posts by )

    Here’s Project Vote’s NY voter registration guide. The footnotes have been linked to the underlying laws and the federal court case.

    Here is an excerpt

    A. Are there restrictions on the voter registration drive offering something of value to a person in
    exchange for completing a voter registration application?

    It is a felony under New York law to pay, lend or contribute, or offer or promise to pay, lend or contribute any money or other valuable consideration to or for any voter, or to or for any other person, to induce such voter or other person to place or cause to be placed or refrain from placing or causing to be placed
    his name upon a registration poll record.14

    Federal law states that whoever pays or offers to pay or accepts payment either for registration to vote or for voting shall be fined not more than $10,000 or imprisoned not more than five years. 15 At least one federal appellate court has interpreted payment as intended to include forms of pecuniary value offered or given directly to an individual voter, and indicated the value should be based on an assessment of the monetary worth of an item from the perspective of the voter receiving the item. That case held that food vouchers could be payment.16

    In Madison Square Garden, Madonna just offered oral sex to anybody who votes for Hillary Clinton.

    The NY law violation is a misdemeanor, fine set between $100-$500 and/or imprisonment not less than one year.

    The Federal law violation is a felony, fine set at not more than $10,000 and/or imprisonment for up to five years.

    1. Mike K Says:

      You probably have to have someone accept the offer. It might be difficult to get anyone but Dennis Rodman to accept and he may not be sane.

    2. TM Lutas Says:

      Mike K – Click the links, the offer is sufficient and she doesn’t have to deliver for it to be illegal.

    3. Mrs. Davis Says:

      The question is, is it something of value? Remember to include the potential cost resulting from infection.

    4. Bence Beasley Says:

      This is not a prosecutable offense. The offer is not seriously intended, no more than a threat she might make to move to Canada. It’s mere political rant.

    5. Mike K Says:

      “Click the links”

      No thanks. I have a weak stomach, plus I was joking.

    6. Jonathan Says:

      She’s not a felon, she’s seeking attention. Why give it to her?

    7. PenGun Says:

      Oh come on. ;) She does appear to know how it’s done, too bad I can’t vote in the US.

    8. TM Lutas Says:

      Mike K – The first four links are to legal texts only, no illustration.

      Mrs. Davis – The original article made clear she worked at selling the idea that it was a valuable offer. I don’t have an opinion on the matter but I’m content to let her lawyer offer the worthlessness of her oral sex as a theory why she should get off at trial.

      Jonathan – How hard can you manipulate the voting system in your favor with a clown nose on and suffer no consequences? This is the second time that entertainers have done this during this national election.

    9. Bill Brandt Says:

      Madonna seems to try to get more and more outrageous to get into the limelight

    10. PenGun Says:

      Really, lawfare is usually laughable. It certainly is here.

    11. TM Lutas Says:

      PenGun – Why am I not surprised that you come out in favor of corruption and against honest elections? You never disappoint.

    12. PenGun Says:

      “Why am I not surprised that you come out in favor of corruption and against honest elections? You never disappoint.”

      Pure hypocrisy. ROTFLMFAO
