…among other things, embarrassing celebrities.
Consider the case of rocker Lenny Kravitz, who has just released a protest song called "We Want Peace" on the Web site of Rock The Vote, an organization dedicated to voter registration.
However, as The Smoking Gun points out, Lenny K has been AWOL for some time regarding that particular civic duty. Not that there's anything wrong with that. In fact, *not* voting is, to paraphrase Stokely Carmichael, as American as cherry pie. But when confronted by The Smoking Gun, Kravitz failed to stand by his actions, saying through a spokesperson, "I haven't voted in many years and it was a mistake."
