For anyone who ever thought they were too busy to vote, meet 21-year-old Galicia Malone.The south suburban Dolton mom-to-be was spotted at her polling place Tuesday morning on her way to give birth at a local hospital.
Cook County Clerk David Orr said Malone's contractions were five minutes apart when she showed up around 8:30 a.m. at her precinct's location named, yes, New Life Celebration Church.
Update .Another polling place hero -- Ty Houston
"He was dead," Houston said. "He had no heartbeat and he wasn't breathing. I started CPR, and after a few minutes, he revived and started breathing again. He knew his name and his wife's name."Pity about that lack of enthusiasm no ?
What happened next astounded Houston and the victim's wife.
"The first question he asked was 'Did I vote?'"
I think that Houston and the guy who's life he saved deserve an invitation for one of those beers with Obama (especially if the death defying voter voted for Romney which I tend to doubt).
