WILMINGTON, NC (STARNEWSONLINE.COM) -- Melissa Gott, whose ascent in New Hanover County politics abruptly collapsed under skepticism about whether she owned a permanent residence there, re-registered to vote in the county last week only days after the Board of Elections purged her from the voting rolls.

Gott registered Nov. 1 at a One-Stop Voting site at Cape Fear Community College’s north campus, listing 602 Chestnut Street in Wilmington as her domicile.

At Least She's Here Legally

Why don't you worry about a real issue like all the illegal Mexicans or convicted felons that the Democrats are driving to the Polls to cast a vote. One of which they don't have! But the Dem's sure want to make sure that they pull out all stops to steal any election they can. And this one will be no different!!!!!!!

1SG America

SHES HERE LEGALLY.

HOW DO YOU KNOW THE DEMS ARE DRIVING ILLEGALS AND FELONS TO VOTE? HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT THE REPUBLICANS AREN'T DOING THE SAME THING? FRANKLY, I DON'T THINK THE WOMAN LIVES IN NEW HANOVER CO.I THINK SHE LIVES IN LELAND OR SOMEWHERE IN BRUN. CO. WHERE DOES HER CHILDREN GO TO SCHOOL? (IF SHE HAS ANY) PRODUCING AN ELECTRIC BILL DOESN'T PROVE PLACE OF RESIDENCE. SHE HAS TO PAY THE UTILITIES FOR HER WORK PLACE, BUT THAT DOESN'T PROVE THAT SHE LIVES THERE. HOW DID SHE PROVE HER PLACE OF RESIDENCY SO QUICKLY AFTER BEING PURGED FROM THE RECORDS? THERES A LOT OF UNANSWERED QUESTIONS IN THIS STORY.

So what if she is here

So what if she is here legally? That doesn't entitle her to illegally hold office.

Felon

In NC convicted felons are allowed to vote if they served their sentence.

Residence

Please go away Mrs. Gott.
When asked under oath at the elections board hearing if you were a NHC resident you declined to speak up.
But a couple of days later you register to vote. I do not know what is worse, your belief that you can do whatever you wish, or the laws that allow you to do so.
Once again please go away

Gott did what she had to do

Justin LaNasa the local 2nd tier political troll in NHC (only behind Big Ben McCoy) would have dragged this out soo long she never would have been able to vote so she did the only thing she could based on the law to bypass LaNasa's trollish behavior which was do a rope a dope. The woman has just as much a right to vote as anybodyelse. She's not running for office (never really was as it was the NHC GOP in fact nominating her to fill an open seat). LaNasa was probably pissed off he wasnt picked reality is he's a political troll who nobody in this county will vote into office. He hasnt figured it out still after his repeated failed efforts. Justin do us all a favor go back to your tattoo shop and leave the rest of us in NHC alone.

Wrong is wrong regardless of

Wrong is wrong regardless of who brings it to light. If I had been in her shoes and was as legal resident of New Hanover County, I would absolutely swear under oath that I was telling the truth. Regardless of who would drag out what, I would want to clear my name. Her unwillingness to clear her name speaks volume.

Gott wouldn't swear under oath because

she would have perjured herself.

If she was being truthful, she would have sworn under oath that she was being truthful about her residency and then, in order to avoid a drawn out process, would have simply withdrawn her candidacy for the position. She did not do that.

Regardless of your perspective on Mr LaNasa's political worthiness, it is beyond cheesy to personally attack him for the purpose of distracting others from focusing on Ms. Gott's misdeeds. This issue is about Ms. Gott, not Mr. LaNasa.

People like you are why more and more voters are deciding to be unaffiliated rather than vote straight tickets. Far too many mindless soldier ants in both parties are willing to do or say anything in order to win.

Why?

Hey, neighbors on Chestnut...Keep an eye out on 602. Let me know if she's actually sleeping there now.

Will the lies never stop?

Will the lies never stop?

Politicians

The public is already sick of politicians and their infernal signs (litter) and their robocalls (rude invasions of privacy), and now we have Ms. Gott making a political spectacle of herself.

Makes me wonder what the hidden perks of being a "public servant" (if there ever was a laughable term, this is it) are--the perks must be profitable.

You should know that

You should know that becoming a "public servant" is profitable. Why do you think every troll on the face of the earth is running for some sort of public office?
