Republican woman from Las Vegas who tried to vote twice in Presidential election pleads guilty

In November 56 year old Roxanne Rubin of Las Vegas was arrested after trying to vote twice in the Presidential election. Rubin, a Las Vegas Strip casino worker, agreed to plead guilty. She alleges that she was trying to prove how easy it is to vote with just a signature. Obviously, it wasn’t so easy. After agreeing to the plead  guilty to a gross misdemeanor that in Nevada that could carry a penalty of up to a year in jail, Rubin said, “This has always been an issue with me. I just feel the system is flawed.” And yet, the system worked.










Rubin, a registered Republican  added, “If we’re showing ID for everything else, why wouldn’t we show our ID in order to vote?”

CBS Local reports:

[Rubin] originally faced a felony charge of voting more than once in the same election. She could end up with a misdemeanor disorderly conduct conviction if she meets the conditions of her plea deal.

Accompanied in court by her husband and her lawyer, Osvaldo Fumo, Rubin agreed to pay almost $2,500 in restitution to the state for the investigation, promised Justice of the Peace Deborah Lippis that she would stay out of trouble for six months, and said she would complete an impulse control counseling class and 100 hours of community service.

Prosecutor Jeffrey Segal, the deputy state attorney general who handled the case, called the agreement “a just resolution, given this particular defendant and this particular case.”

Is it just me, or does anyone else see the correlation with Republicans’ cries of victimization tied to their own crimes? Rubin keeps explaining that she was acting in good faith, and that the system is flawed, yet the system worked — but she’s still complaining.

    Speaking of Voter Fraud! Seems it’s always the conservatives trying to do it, perhaps to bolster their claims about how “rampant” it is!

    Bush was notorious for this! Denouncing the other side while doing exactly the thing they were denouncing!!

    I don’t know about ehr, but here in MI, we DO have to show ID, or sign an affadavit with name address, etc, which means we get a provisional ballot. Plus they have a master book of names, and when you sign your little form, they mark that you voted. How would you cheat?
