Robbins’ Redemption

tim-robbins

Apparently, being a celebrity doesn’t help you when it comes to voting. TMZ is reporting that Tim Robbins, the outspoken liberal star of “The Shawshank Redemption,” and “Mystic River,” was turned away from his polling place in New York City, where he has been voting for over ten years. Robbins allegedly was not on the register, and the tension between the poll-worker and the Academy Award winner quickly escalated. When cameras caught up with him, Robbins had this to say:
“This is what you have to do to vote… I had to go down to see a judge… My name was not on the roll, and I’m not the only one.”
Turns out, fame can only take you so far.
