Denies Living in Palm Beach Which Means She Admits to Breaking Florida State Tax Law By Taking a $25k Homestead Exemption
ALSO: Republican Mouthpiece Reveals a Disturbing Medical Condition for BRAD BLOG Reporters!

Were it not for the Busby/Bilbray issue reported here earlier today --- which is serious as a heart attack, and about which we'll have more tomorrow --- we would have covered this more indepth. In fact, we've got additional new documents from the Coulter case, which will have to wait until another day because we're buried in the other story for the moment.

But quickly, for now, if this report from the New York Daily News is accurate, the allegations against Coulter surrounding her alleged felony voter fraud, and now more, in the state of Florida, have just gotten a lot worse for her...

According to the Daily News:

Coulter denied knowingly voting in the wrong district in a Fox News Channel interview Tuesday night, and said she actually lives in New York.

First, her denial of "knowingly voting the wrong district" contradicts the incident report given by the poll worker after the event. That incident report, by the poll worker who gave it, and the Election Supervisor's letter to Coulter about it are both posted one of our earlier stories here.

Second, her admission that she "actually lives in New York," if true, means that she's now admitting to a violation of Florida tax law since she took a $25,000 homestead exemption --- according to the Palm Beach County Appraisers office --- on the $1.3 million dollar crib in Palm Beach County which she purchased in March of last year. As we reported previously, the Florida homestead law states:

Every person who has legal title to a residential property and lives there permanently qualifies for this exemption. You must be a permanent resident of Florida on January 1 of the initial application year.

On her her Palm Beach, Florida voter registration form, which The BRAD BLOG also exclusively posted in April, she knowingly signed an "oath" below the section where she knowingly wrote the the address of her realtor's agent instead of her own.

That signature affirms that all the information on the form was true. And that, the purported constitutional attorney Coulter, understood "that if it is not true, I can be convicted of a felony of the third degree and fined up to $5,000 and/or imprisoned for up to five years."

And finally this, again from the NY Post article, which would seem to do little but add to both her personal PR problems (though we know she doesn't give a shit about that) and, more importantly, her legal problems:

She said the reporters who wrote about the case are "all retarded" and accused Palm Beach officials of having a sexually transmitted disease.

"I think the syphilis has gone to their brains," she said. "This is all false, I'm telling you."

Meanwhile, Coulter is also registered to vote in New Canaan, Conn. - though the local registrar told the Daily News yesterday it's illegal to be registered in two places at once.

Coulter cast an absentee ballot in New Canaan in the 2004 election. She also owns a $1.5 million condo on Manhattan's East Side but has never registered to vote there.

The retarded reporters here at The BRAD BLOG will have more on this, including documents from her new criminal attorneys --- Bush pals who worked on his Florida 2000 "victory", natch --- in a report soon. If our syphilis allows it.

UPDATE: Michelle Pilecki at Huff Po has more... Including Hannity & Colmes transcript on this.
