Usher Rocks The Vote Voting Booth, Much To Atlanta's Dismay!

| Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikUsher

usher voter fraud cut line atlanta election

Being famous obviously has its perks!!

Adoring fans! Free shoes! Half-priced hookers!

But some things money and popularity should NOT buy!!

Usher, conscientious citizen he is, made it a point to vote Tuesday in Hotlanta!!

Awesome!! We applaud you for doing your civic duty!!

The only problem?

County officials recognized him and gave him special treatment!

All the other diligent Americans waited in line to cast their vote, but the R&B star was, pardon the pun, ushered ahead of the rest!!

One would-be voter, Alan Christian, waited 45 minutes before the singer showed up and immediately waltzed right on by!

Alan revealed:

"I take the voting process very seriously, and I was just taken aback that this was allowed to happen. At that point, he took his camera out, started taking pictures of himself in the booth, of his card and as he was voting."

That's just not fair!!

We understand being a celebrity brings certain perks and warrants special consideration, but that doesn't automatically make your time more valuable!

Furthermore, Georgia law prohibits taking pictures inside a polling station!!

Ch-ch-check out the pics he took while voting (below)!

    The taking pictures thing aside, it was probably a good security measure that they just let him go through. I'm not saying that's what was intended but with how many people that were already waiting in line and the amount of people that were probably going to show up, especially the newly 18 year old voters, Usher's long term presence probably would have started too much of a commotion.

    It wasn't a concert, it was an election. Anyone old enough to vote should have been able to contain themselves and act appropriately and not cause a commotion. Usher should have stood in line like everyone else and certainly should not be taking photos. The poll workers at the precinct should never be allowed to work in an election again for allowing this to happen.

    i really don't think it's a big deal, do you honestly think he was the only celeb to be put through the line? i mean come on, with all going on in the world people are complaining about this? it likely was for security reasons, did you ever stop and think the venue wanted him in and out as not to cause a stir? come on people, stop being so childish.

    If the pope had decided to vote, do you think he'll stand on line with his big robe, the cross and his holy water. People would be so distracted by usher being on line , it was the best decision made for everyone involved in that situation. Make way for the King

    That's just not right, even tho I enjoy his stuff. He should have insisted on waiting himself, imo. Commotion, schimmotion.

    Re: hotcanadiantaco – He was probably the only celebrity in Roswell, Georgia voting in that precinct. Everyone else was waiting 90 minutes to vote. Most adults in their 30's and up would not have probably even noticed him and if so, so what. He did this same thing in another part of Atlanta by parking in a handicap spot in a heavy traffic area and had to move because "regular people" were so outraged at his sense of self-entitlement.

    Vote absentee ballot, only way to go, no waiting in line.
    When I did vote in person I only waited 5-10 minutes max, no way I would wait 90 minutes.
