Over 2,800 people who were already dead may have "voted" in last November's election in Minnesota -- an indication either of voter fraud, or of record-keeping so flawed that it leaves the state vulnerable to fraudulent ballots being cast according to a government watchdog group.
Minnesota Majority, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization with several Republican supporters, is calling for a federal investigation into Minnesota's election practices.
"The secretary of state's office is now in what I interpret to be panic mode," Minnesota Majority founder Jeff Davis tells Newsmax.
According to Davis, the issue of deceased persons on the voter rolls dates back to October, when he sent a letter to the secretary of state's office alerting officials to the problem. State officials referred him to county election officials, but many of the county officials in turn referred him back to the state.
"This is the great finger-pointing exercise, 'It's their responsibility,' and "No, it's their responsibility,'" Davis says.
After the election, Minnesota Majority obtained the state's entire list of voters who cast ballots in the election. It gave the list to an outside firm that routinely conducts "death suppression" for direct mail firms.
This involved matching the voter lists names and addresses -- with recent deaths. The process flagged over 2,800 individuals at specific addresses who, according to public records, appeared to have died prior to voting naturally a concern to anyone worried about voter fraud.
To check the data, Minnesota Majority dispatched researchers to check on 12 of the names. They spoke to neighbors and relatives. Some neighbors refused to comment, but in five of the 12 cases, people confirmed that the individual in question had in fact passed away prior to the election.

Democrats from Chicago, no doubt
No, the system is corrupt by design. If states wanted to, they could make the voting system as secure as the lottery.
If the conservatives can;’t shut down Acorn and voter fraud, they will NEVER win another election!
2800 Franken voters no doubt.
For those that need a good laugh, check this out:
The dead vote in Minnesota,illegals ok’d to vote in Georgia,and the “president” can’t produce a birth certificate.....now THAT’S “change”!
Real absentee voters
and ironically they all voted for frankenstien
Don’t you people understand, the dead have feelings too. You need to demonstrate some empathy for these poor neglected people. The very least that we can do is to count their votes.
Any word on what precincts specifically??
The dead weren’t included in the new hate crimes bill,were they?
Yeppers, the absolute truth. Hey pubs, grow some cojones, will ya?
You’d have to be brain dead to vote for Franken.
That seems to be the goal the democrats are working toward. Totalitarianism.
Never underestimate the Democrats.
Look if Acorn has gotten gov. funding (aka our tax dollars)then the least we can do is insist that TAPS get some too.
