Yesterday Breitbart posted an article about Cody, a beloved family pet who lived in Atlanta and passed away before President Obama was elected. Cody received a voter registration form by mail on Wednesday.
The article reports:
“If they’re trying to register cats, I’m not quite sure who else they’re trying to register. I don’t know if they’re registering dogs, mice, snakes?” Tims said.
Fox 5 reported the feline was a “DemoCAT.”
The Georgia Secretary of State blamed third-party groups for such activity.
“Third-party groups all over the country are targeting Georgia to help register qualified individuals. This group makes you wonder what these out-of-town activists are really doing. Make no mistake about it, this office is dedicated to investigating all types of fraud,” Brad Raffensperger’s office said.
Cody, of course, lives in the home state of Stacey Abrams, the failed gubernatorial candidate who has since made it her mission to fight voter ID laws.
The Secretary of State’s office told Fox 5 Cody wouldn’t have been allowed to vote “since he did not have a license or state ID.”
It’s not clear if Cody would have been able to cast a ballot in a full vote-by-mail system.
Cody isn’t unique in receiving such mail long after he’s spent his 9th life.
In 2016, Benicia the border collie received an application in Raleigh, North Carolina, according to ABC 7.
“She would have been smart enough to but I don’t think a dog is probably entitled to vote,” owner John Schneider said.
Benecia received a letter from the Voter Participation Center, a nonprofit that sends out mass mailings of voter registration forms.
Unfortunately I suspect there are those among us who would register their family pets for mail-in voting. I have two cats named Abe and Ace. I am sure that they would vote for President Trump. Many of my neighbors have dogs, some of which I am sure would vote for Joe Biden. We already have places where the number of people voting is larger than the voting-age population. Can you imagine the numbers with mail-on voting?
