Lady Ann disenfranchises herself

This is interesting! Ann Coulter just did a no-no. According to the Palm Beach Post, she voted in the wrong precinct during that county's council elections last week. But worse than that, she gave a false address:

She wrote down an Indian Road address instead of Seabreeze [Avenue] on her voter's registration application. And she signed to certify the information as true.
"She never lived here," said Suzanne Frisbie, owner of the Indian Road home. "I'm Ann's Realtor, and she used this address to forward mail when she moved from New York."
Knowingly voting in the wrong precinct is a 3rd class felony in Florida. There is also the matter of falsifying voter registration documents which includes an oath declaring the information true.

One might be willing to rack this up to someone who is just a little dumb and doesn't know the difference between a mailing address and a residence address... except that Coulter is a lawyer.

I wonder, does a conviction under a 3rd class felony get you removed from the voter's list in Florida?
