T.I. Finds Loophole -- Dude CAN Vote?!

10/29/2008 6:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

For a convicted felon, T.I. is pretty damn good at reading the fine print of the law -- 'cause the rapper found a way to VOTE after all!

T.I. -- who pleaded guilty to weapons charges last year -- found a loophole in the Georgia law book, which allows a convicted felon the right to vote IF they're not currently serving probation or a prison sentence.

Because T.I. isn't expected to be sentenced until next year, dude still can exercise his civic duty.

And before authorities could change their mind, T.I. hit a polling place in Atlanta to lock in his ballot ... cause like he says, in America -- you can have whatever you like.

Good for him. Despite his mistakes, I'm proud of T.I. and all that he's done for our community here in Atlanta. I'm happy to see that he cared enough to find the loophole, and that he followed through on his civic duty.

Way to go TMZ! Your smart-ass remarks just blew up in your face! If one of your staffers had bothered to do a little research, you would have realized you were wrong! Many convicted felons have had their rights reinstated, that's besides this LAW (not loophole) that allows T.I. to vote. Morons.
