If they're dead, then who voted?
San Diego Union-Tribune ^ | 7/19/2014 | Joel Hoffmann

Posted on 07/20/2014 11:46:48 AM PDT by South40

Francis J. DeGregory was a World War II Army veteran who served in the Battle of the Bulge. He died in 2008 and is interred at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery.

Dara Welty was an aspiring opera singer and La Jolla native who died of a blood clot during a visit to Bolivia in 1998, at 22.

Both went on to vote — repeatedly — in San Diego County elections, records show. They remain registered to vote to this day, DeGregory as a Republican and Welty as a Democrat.

Amid a national debate about whether states should pass new laws to curb voter fraud, U-T Watchdog found their cases in a review of county elections data.

There is no voter fraud going on in this country says Eric Holder. They fraudulent guy who used ole Eric’s name to vote in his own precinct would be to differ.

“Who voted? Why YOU did silly; and you voted Democrat as well! There now does that clear this question up?”

Wasn't there a Hope-Crosby movie clip about that ;-)

Our banana republic style “elections” are a joke. I remember when “Vote early and vote often” was supposed to be sarcastically funny. Now it’s instructions from the DNC to their followers.

Now what I want to see is a list of REAL ADULT CITIZENS that don’t have government-issued picture ID.

I’d like to do a case-study in how they live in this country, considering:
1) They cannot drive legally
2) They cannot get medical care
3) They cannot get food stamps, Social Security, or any other welfare
4) They cannot get a job
5) They cannot open a bank account
6) They cannot cash a check
7) They cannot get a credit card or a loan
8) They cannot get on an airplane
9) They cannot leave the country

I’m interest in who all these people are. The Dems imply that there are MILLIONS of them, but other than a couple of nuns in Ohio, I’m still waiting to find out who they are and how many they are, because NOW we are naming people that vote dead - something very difficult to do with a Voter ID requirement.

If they're dead, then who voted?

One solution could be to require PROOF that you paid taxes before being allowed to vote. I'm positive the dems would howl about this, but who the hell cares?

“Every second of the day, people are dying, people are moving, people are turning 18, and there’s always going to be lag time updating the voter rolls,” said Michael Vu, who heads the county’s Registrar of Voters.

Five years in DeGregory’s case and FOURTEEN YEARS in Welty’s case. No inefficiency here. No fraud either.

Gadzooks! When they come to vote, check their names against the death certificates data base and if it says they are dead... then bury them six feet deep right then and there--

The Democratic Party supports full Civil Rights for Necro-Americans! Or as they prefer to be called, “respirationally challenged”. Should a citizen be deprived of the right to vote for the Democrat of his or her or its choice merely because they have achieved thermodynamic equilibrium with their environment?

We may not know all of the dead who voted, but we sure do kind who they all voted for.

Blasted Republicans! They KNOW that the dead have no valid ID. Racist, homophobic, misogynistic scoundrels!

This is nothing. In good old Hudson County NJ, where I hail from the dead voted ‘’early and often’’. Five, six times or more. Nothing to it.

Here's how voter fraud worked in the ‘old days’:

Several precincts would hold back their ballot boxes until they knew how many votes were needed to win.

Cards of the people who didn't show up to vote would be pulled - an ice pick would be put over the chad spot - a hammer would hit the ice pick - and 50 ‘chads’ would drop out. That would be repeated until the correct number of votes needed to win were ‘voted’.

“The dead” were NEVER voted on purpose - that would take massive effort... the 'dead vote' is a by-product of this type of fraud - (BECAUSE the dead never show up to vote) - their cards would be mixed in with the 'didn't show up to vote' cards pulled..

The good thing about ‘the dead vote’ is it shows the extend of voter fraud for that race. In the ‘old days’ one of the ways to spot who was doing fraud was to look for the precincts that got their ballot boxes last.

I'm sure it's basically being done the same today... but I don't know how with the paperless system.

Also in the ‘old days’ voter fraud was traditionally done in black precincts.

This is why they are fighting so hard to shoot down voter ID. This is also how they elected Barack Obama I suspect.

Positive ID at the polls in EVERY STATE would go a long way in preventing the dead from voting.

Seems to me it would have to be an inside job. Someone would have to be in a position to know who died and could keep them from being removed from the voter list. Maybe someone in the voter registration office. I smell a Democrat in the wood pile.
