    The state will not pursue a complaint that accuses conservative pundit Ann Coulter or falsely voting in Connecticut several years ago. 

    The state Election Commission met on Thursday and discussed fraud allegations about the polarizing author of “If Democrats Had Any Brains, They'd Be Republicans” and “Godless: The Church of Liberalism.”

    Daniel Borchers, a blogger who has written critically of Coulter, filed a complaint in 2009, claiming that Coulter used her parents' New Canaan address in both 2002 and 2004 for absentee ballots.

    The state investigated, found that the address Coulter used was a her bonafide resident, that she was a registered voter in the state and only voted in the Connecticut, so they decided to take no further action. They also said the complaint was filed several years after the voting occurred.

    Coulter changed her voting address in 2006 to Florida, state officials said.

    Coulter, a Connecticut native, has worked as a private practice lawyer in New York; worked for the Senate Judiciary Committee, handling crime and immigration issues for Senator Spencer Abraham and went on to work as a lawyer for the Center for Individual Rights in Washington, DC.
