Lawyer urges snowbirds to cast their votes in Florida By Mary McLachlin

BOCA RATON In the muddled aftermath of Election 2000, Lawrence Caplan lost a legal fight and learned an important political lesson at the hands of none other than Vice President Dick Cheney:
You can live in one state and vote in another.
Caplan, a tax and corporate lawyer, has turned that lesson into Operation: Snowbird, an Internet tool designed to make a difference in the election of 2004 if Democratic voters in New York and New Jersey respond to it.
All they have to do, according to Caplan's Web site, www.operationsnowbird.com, is switch their registrations to Florida, where their votes are more likely to be needed by the Kerry-Edwards ticket than in the deep "blue" states up north. (The last day to register for the Nov. 2 election is Oct. 4.)
New York went for Gore-Lieberman by more than 1.7 million votes, while the official margin for Bush-Cheney in Florida was 537. If only 600 of the 2.2 million votes cast for the Democratic ticket in New York had been cast in Florida, according to the Snowbird site, the state's electoral votes and the presidency would have gone to Al Gore.

let them do it. new york is now in play, if enough snowbirds go south, FL could go dem but NY could go for W
A crooked lawyer instructs Rat snowbirds on how to use their votes help his two lawyer buds, the John Johns.
Most of these snowbirders voted twice for Gore in the last election, once by absentee ballot in their northern home state and once by regular ballot in Floriduh!
If you have two residences you'd be foolish to keep your official on in NY. Florida has not state income tax. People wealthy enough to own houses in both state probably got that way because they were smart about money. Therefore its safe to assume the vast majority are already claiming Florida residence and registered to vote in that state.
So, how and can we stop it?
Well, at least they're not trying to hide it.
If they can do it, so can we. Since we're essentially giving Kerry Mass, and have no real expectation of winning Vermont or even (really) New York, why not have ALL the Republicans in those three states re-register in Florida??
Have these people no shame? Of course not they're LIBERALS, and it's part of their sleazy, power-hungry M.O.
I'll bet the Palm Beach Post would have us believe they are absolutely bypartisan, just like Zero Rather and his cBS network.
Has Rush, Hannitty or Hewitt commented on this, or would that be a bad thing... giving this more publicity?
The attorney Generals in all of the snowbird states need to get with the ags in southern states and say that double dipping voing will not be tolerated.
However, that will not happen in NY and most of the NE states as their AGs are rats who condone this double dipping.
New polling data shows Bush closeing the gap in New York state! Letum go vote in Florida then we win BOTH states!
May be of some interest to you and those on your ping list.
I just bought a house in Florida, but we still work in Virginia, so it wouldn't do us any good to claim Florida. A lot of these "snowbirds" are in the same shape we are in. People are working longer and usually it is difficult to take one of these East Coast jobs with you and keep it entact. People have tried that & it usually doesn't work out so hot.
I have not heard of this from Hannity or anyone else. It's one of those things that I'm not sure should be publicized as it may embolden their efforts.
