In January 2010 the former Massachusetts governor proudly cast a ballot for Republican Scott Brown in the special election to replace the late Sen. Ted Kennedy. He didn’t own property in the state at the time, and had registered to vote listing his son’s unfinished basement as his residence. Massachusetts law defines a residence for voter registration purposes as “where a person dwells and which is the center of his domestic, social, and civil life.” Anyone found guilty of committing voter fraud faces up to five years behind bars and a fine of $10,000.
On one hand, he almost certainly didn’t live there and therefore cast a fraudulent vote; on the other hand, the mental image of Romney living in an unfinished basement smoking weed and watching Netflix in his sweats is pretty funny.
Will the Tea Birther Party care? Will Mittuns be hounded at every side even more so because these allegations are actually probably true?
