North Carolina man guilty of bad joke, not voter fraud

Updated: Jim Turner of Pine Knoll Shores is getting a crash course in social media.

The 69-year-old of Pine Knoll Shores writes a column for a local publication called Shoreline, and he took to Facebook last Friday with a comment he intended as a sarcastic joke for his daughter and intended for a narrow circle of friends: "I voted once in Beaufort, once in Henderson, twice in Emerald Isle and will vote in my precinct," he said.

Turner made the comment on Barack Obama's fan page, and in the days since has seen firsthand that what happens on Facebook doesn't always stay there.
