Fulton County says superstar Usher was a model citizen when he voted in Roswell on Tuesday. Wouldn't we all be if we were afforded the same privileges?
A local resident in Roswell told Roswell Patch the international celebrity was able to skip past long lines of waiting voters with his own photographers in tow, despite posted signs that prohibited pictures and videos to be taken in the polling area.
Bob Giordano, a spokesperson with the Fulton County Office of Communications, confirmed Usher Raymond voted in Roswell. He said Usher did take photos, but not of the voting machines, only of people who wanted to pose with him.
People who waited in long lines for their turns at the voting machine and honored the rule not to take photos were not impressed. The argument that it was for security and crowd control reasons because of the celebrity status didn't impress others either. The argument was there is always absentee voting if that is likely to present a problem.
So what do you think? Should celebrities be given special privileges at the polls?
