What's the editorial equivalent of a face palm? Banging your head on your desk repeatedly? We searched, and we can't find an emoji big enough to express our disappointment with this group of Americans Jimmy Kimmel caught on camera lying about voting.
For his Midterm Elections edition of "Lie Witness News," the late-night comedian sent his crew to the streets of Hollywood last Tuesday to ask people how they voted, and six too many people were willing to make crap up to seem like they fulfilled their most basic civic duty.
To be clear, this wasn't a survey of people who used California's mail-in ballot system for early voting -- these people were asked specifically if they went to a polling place, which were most definitely not open a week ago.
"Honestly, I voted for Supreme Court and the other ones, just because," one liar said, and another stated her polling place in Hollywood was "not as busy as I thought it would be."
Another young woman confidently said she voted "yes" on a Los Angeles ballot proposition that doesn't exist, and argued Aspirin "can be addictive" to back up her b.s. claim. That same woman did not hesitate to claim she voted for Aiden for "LA Unified School District Student Body President."
The same gentleman who said he "honestly" voted or the Supreme Court was given the chance to come clean, but instead he chose to swear on his life that he did vote at a polling a week ago.
Let's hope that being publicly humiliated on late-night television spurs these six Americans to actually research what's on the ballot and make their voice heard at an actual polling place in Los Angeles.
