Susan B. Anthony was fined $100 after voting for which U.S. President?

Answer:

Ulysses S. Grant

In 1872, civil rights activist Susan B. Anthony voted illegally in a presidential election. Anthony voted for every Republican on the ballot, including President Ulysses S. Grant who won the election. At that time, women were not allowed to vote. Two weeks later, Anthony was arrested, and eventually fined $100 for voting illegally. “I shall never pay a dollar of your unjust penalty,” she said—and she never did. It wasn’t until 1920, 14 years after her death, that the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, giving all adult women the right to vote, was passed.
