Florida dog-voting charge dropped
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- A woman who registered her pet poodle to vote is no longer facing felony voter fraud charges.
Prosecutors agreed not to charge Wendy Albert on the condition that she stays out of trouble for the next year.
The third-degree felony carries a maximum five-year prison term and a $5,000 fine. Paul Zacks, chief assistant state attorney, called the punishment "a little extreme."
Albert's address was on a card registering "Cocoa Fernandez," the poodle, as a Republican. Cocoa got on the voter rolls July 11.
