  •  There's a famous case of a man in NJ (0+ / 0-)

    He was "homeless", and spent all day long hanging around in Morristown, NJ.  He was thrown out of the library, sued, and collected several hundred thousand dollars.

    With that money, he rented an apartment in a nearby town, but continud to spend all his time in Morristown.  

    He filed to vote in Morristown.  The state objected, saying he lived in the town where he had an apartment.  The court ruled in the man's favor, saying that he may have had an apartment in the neighboring town, but he was homeless in Morristown, and the court said homeless people have a right to vote.

    Now figure that one out !
