In Pa., Man's Best Voter Fraud?
By Pamela Constable
According to a column posted in today's Philadelphia Daily News, one Bridget Killer of Wynnefield, Pa., received a formal notice from election officials advising her "as a first-time voter" how to cast a ballot today. Turns out that Bridget Killer is unlikely to vote for any candidate, even via paw prints. She is a dog, or rather, she was once two dogs: a miniature poodle named Bridget and a German Shepherd-Great Dane mix named Killer, who previously belonged to human voter Rich Gibson of Wynnefield, Pa. To make matters more mysterious, both pooches passed away some time ago.
Gibson, a semi-retired accountant, was so upset about the glitch that he called the Daily News to complain after he could not reach election officials. "I don't want someone to accuse me of Chicago-style voting after the election," he told columnist Ronnie Polaneczky.
