Martha Stewart already had her vote taken away once, when the state of New York sentenced her to five months in prison for insider trading. This week it may have happened again.
Martha tweeted today that New York’s widespread Board of Election failures—which included the mysterious disappearance of about 50,000 registered democrats—affected her personally when she went to vote.
When I went to vote yesterday I was not in the records and had to fill out extensive forms and affidavits .i was told many had to do this— Martha Stewart (@MarthaStewart) April 20, 2016
Newspapers are reporting many "snafus"and irregularities at polls yesterday it makes all of us vulnerable and uncomfortable— Martha Stewart (@MarthaStewart) April 20, 2016
Though she says she was able to fill out an affidavit, it’s not clear that her vote was ultimately counted if her name wasn’t listed on the voter rolls affidavits get cross-checked against. The state of New York has disenfranchised Martha Stewart yet again, and on a piece of mass-produced, discount computer paper, no less. Voter suppression aside—who will speak for New York’s artisanal Araucana chicken egg farmers?
And if that weren’t enough:
My day for complaining: the 125th st garbage dump on the Hudson Rivet is smelling horrible . mayor, what are you doing about this?— Martha Stewart (@MarthaStewart) April 20, 2016
