Punk’d! Actress Taraji Henson shops voting machine conspiracy hoax

Tinfoil hats must be the new fall fashion, as one of Hollywood’s leading ladies is adopting the conspiracy style!

That’s right folks! All the machines are rigged to omit Obama from your one-click straight ticket vote! (People actually do that?!)

Several people had the sense to alert Ms. Henson that this hoax had been debunked — by the notorious conservative mouthpiece The Root.

Trust us Taraji, when far-left outlets tamp down a voter-suppression accusation, you know the accusation is garbage. On top of that, Tweeters noted that anyone with a third-grade education should know enough to look at their ballot before submitting it.

Unfortunately, that didn’t stop plenty of people from marching over the conspiracy cliff.

    And this is who, exactly?

    • Chaitealover

      Plays the detective on “Person of Interest.” I only know that because the conservative and sexy Jim Caviezel is the reason I watch it.

      • Eric Hutchison

        Jim Caviezel kicks butt.

          i love how he isnt afraid to use force to protect the people hes

      • SAndrews

        Now I’m bummed. One of the few things I can stand to watch on network TV. Jim Caviezel is perfect in it. Glad to hear he’s conservative.

    I’m sending her an e-mail from my Nigerian friend, who’s a banker. I need her routing number.

      ………..to send her a windfall she got from a long lost relative that sadly passed away. You forgot the important part.

        and that she will get 95 percent of the money minus a small fee for processing

  • SansMercy

      “Michelle O”.

  • Concerned

    What about the real issue where machines were being changes from Romney to Obama?

    • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

      Keeping an out for that tomorrow (well, today for you East Coasters).

    • Lynn

      They are reporting now that the machine is sensitive but is not changing your vote. Advising people to check before casting final ballot.

  • Eric Hutchison

    There’s a reason she doesn’t get a lot of dialogue in “Person of Interest.” I don’t know how Jim Caviezel puts up with her.

    • pbnj30

      I suppose its irony that The Root debunked her?

  • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

    She is g-u-l-l-i-b-l-e.

  • John (it true me am)

    Damnit, now Person of Interest is tainted.

  • Guest

    How very sad. I thought Taraji was intelligent and beautiful. Should have realized she is just a puppet repeating lines, like the current president. I have lost all respect for her knowing now she likes the socialist agenda where the people live in misery and the political elite and their cronies live in luxury and that she supports a traitor and murderer as president, What a pitiful waste.

      well at least we have melissa joan hart, and jenna jameson

  • agroulx

    Pay attention to your ballot, but never pay attention to who the radical person is you are voting for. (Squirrel!)

  • Paul C.

    This occurs only if your IQ is under 70.

  • cgraham77

    I have no idea who this person is…but another good reminder why I gave up TV years ago.

    Leading Lady? As in leading the other Lemmings into the cold waters of Wednesday. Time to hammer out the Marxist Obama.

  • 2013_garvey

    Huffington Post actually has the video of this happening with voting machines. Soooo, who is going to be the first to apologize to Taraji? http://huff.to/YRQHk7

  • Vivian Perez

    I wonder if Taraji is worried about the alleged polling places where Republicans have tried to vote… and President Revenge’s name comes up instead (a few times)…

  • ceemack

    She comes across as very intelligent on “Person of Interest”. I guess it’s easier to sound smart when someone else tells you what to say.

    Wait…that’s how Obama got elected in the first place! David Axelrod and Jeff Dunham are colleagues…

    • http://google.com/ FAKEXTIAN Hunter

      Obama got elected by Votes. Something Romney didn’t get enough of apparently. Obama 2012!!!!

      • Hello Jerry (D)

        Did we touch a nerve Troll Boy?

  • Hello Jerry (D)
