Those of you who are worried about fraud with mail-in voting this fall election … you couldn’t be more correct.
Last week, an Atlanta family received a voter registration application form in their mailbox for their cat “Cody Tims,” who died 12 years ago.
The family told FOX 5Atlanta: “There’s a huge push but if they’re trying to register cats, I’m not sure who else they’re trying to register,” the late feline owner, Carol Tims, told Fox5 Atlanta. “I’m not sure if they’re trying to register dogs, mice, snakes.”
Pet owner Carol Tims stated that while Cody was a “great cat” who “loved his family, loved his neighborhood” and lived to the ripe old age of 18 … his ability to vote this fall is not feasible: “He’s a cat and he’s been dead for a long time,” Tims told Fox5Atlanta.
How did the snafu happen? Georgia’s Secretary of State’s Office is not taking the blame, telling the media station they did not send out the form. Instead, they posited that third-party activist groups using mailing lists made the error.
The Office told Fox5Atlanta: “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.”
And if Cody the cat could vote this fall, owner Carol Tims told Fox5Atlanta that he would be a “Democat.”
