Charges dropped against woman who registered her dog to vote

She registered her Australian shepherd-terrier mix as a voter in protest of what she contends are lax standards for voters to prove their identity and citizenship. She used a utility bill in the dog's name — Duncan M. MacDonald — as identification.

Balogh made no attempt to hide the deception after the fact, telling a number of elected officials what she had done and putting a pawprint instead of a signature on an absentee-ballot envelope. She didn't try to vote using the dog's registration.

FLASHBACK - Iraq PR Written Months Before Intel Report Arrived

The National Security Archive released a report Friday Aug. 22, 2008 that sheds even more light on the premeditated lying and deception that took the United States to war in Iraq. The findings are based on new evidence compiled by Dr. John Prados and published by the National Security Archive. (See "White Paper" Drafted before NIE even Requested , "Scoop" Independent News, Aug. 24, 2008)

Most notably, Prados shows the depth of the deception perpetrated against citizens and Congress regarding the alleged threat to U.S. security posed by Iraq. It had appeared that the White House rewrote the Oct. 1, 2002 National Intelligence Estimate and then issued that doctored report to Congress on Oct. 4, 2002. Prados reveals convincing evidence that the Oct. 4 White Paper had already been written by July 2002. He shows that it was only slightly altered after the final NIE arrived. This White Paper served as the basis for the war.
