Situation normal, all flubbed up: Canadian admits voting in the U.S.
Apparently, we're only hassling American citizens who try to vote.


Canadian admits voting in U.S.

Published: Nov. 10, 2012 at 7:10 PM

MIAMI, Nov. 10 (UPI) -- An Austrian native and naturalized Canadian has been sentenced to five months in prison for voting illegally in at least two U.S. presidential elections.

Josef Sever, 53, who moved to Florida in 1992, is likely to be deported when he is released, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported. He said as much at a sentencing hearing Friday in Miami.

Sever acknowledged voting, by absentee ballot, in the 2004 and 2008 elections. He registered as an independent.

He has also admitted illegally stating he was a citizen to buy guns and to get a permit.

I ask again: when are we going to get a federal election law governing federal elections, with stiff penalties? Maybe it would not have prevented this jerk from voting, but it would have sent him to jail for longer than five damn months.

1. He felt it was his duty to vote against Obama?
Sounds like a righty to me. But, maybe not.

2. I did not see in the story that he voted against Obama, but I wouldn't be surprised.
But, I have to have some compassion for any man named Ursula.

No wonder he wanted a gun!
