The state of Minnesota has found nearly 24,000 possible cases of fraud involving drivers licenses issued in the state, Fox Minneapolis reports. A facial recognition scan of the states 11 million photo database found nearly 1.3 million duplicates.
There was about 23,000 records that we think are a good chance of being fraud, (Doug Neville, communications director for the Minnesota Department of Public Safety) said.
23,705 cases of possible fraud to be exact.
People like Pedro Chavez, aka Jose Cisneros, or Carlos Santiago, or Antonia Ledesma four separate Minnesota drivers licenses.
Detectives say the Albert Lea man was illegally collecting welfare for a decade, using real Minnesota drivers licenses obtained with phony documents. He was convicted of forgery, and deported.

Isn’t getting a ID an impossible hurdle? People will be disenfranchised when they are turned away at the voting booth if we pass voter ID laws.
Because it’s so hard to get a drivers license or state ID
See, this is why complaining about voter ID laws is preposterous — it’s so easy to get a photo ID, some people have more than one!
There are many people with duplicate licenses in Minnesota who are not illegal immigrants. Remain positive that we can clean up that problem! Fraud is so rampant that each state has to start somewhere. This is a good start. Every state should do this.
State ID issues like this are all related. If a state cleans up the ID process at the initial point, then over time it will help to clean up the voter fraud.
24 thousand fake IDs ?
What was the spread in Minnesota’s last senatorial campaign ?
I think the point we’re trying to make is how the fraud-enablers always claim that voter ID is a “hurdle” or “barrier” too high to overcome for people. So, tongue-in-cheek, we’re pointing out hat it can’t be that big of an obstacle, seeing the people who can get more than one.
and VOILA - we ended up with Obamacare.
They have stolen our country.
I think we said the same thing. I thought the sarcasm tag wasn’t needed. ;)
That is a very good question.
that was 24000 for-sure frauds!
1.3 MILLION DUPLICATES!!!!!
The rats do not want voter ID’s
DFL Al Franken 1,212,629
GOP Norm Coleman 1,212,317
312 votes difference. With as many as 24,000 fraudulent votes.
These were probably obtained to commit identity theft or financial fraud not for multiple voting.
A birth-certificate (easy to fake, and it if’s out of state not going to be verified) and a utility bill to prove residence (also easy to fake) are all that are needed to get a driver’s license in many states.
Wonder how many duplicate social security numbers Mexicans are using?
Minnesota Gov. Dayton says that requiring a photo ID like a drivers license would stop minorities from voting. However, it would seem that getting a Minnesota drivers license isn’t that tough and even an illegal alien using an assumed name with phoney papers can have a photo ID.
Do I really need a sarcasm tag?
Pawlenty bragged about Minnesota Nice’s squeaky clean vote counting system that likely stripped the Senate seat from Coleman and gave it to Franken. For me, that disqualifies Pawlenty from VP.
I just had to fight autofill to keep it from saying Frankenstein.
1.3 million duplicates, and only 23,000 suspected cases of fraud?
How does your facial recognition system work? IN has started taking picture ID on license using no glasses etc. Do you do the same? For how long?
