MINNESOTA VOTE FRAUD: 2,812 Dead Voters
Redstate ^ | 6/04/09 | James Richardson

Posted on 06/04/2009 7:59:46 AM PDT by james.richardson

A review of Minnesota’s statewide database of registered voters revealed at least 2,812 deceased individuals voted in last November’s general election, according to a new report by the “traditional values” advocacy group Minnesota Majority.

After obtaining the list of voters who participated in November’s election, the group hired an independent firm who specializes in “death suppression” for direct mailing lists to review the data. The process, which involved matching names and addresses to state death records, bore troubling results.

According to Minnesota statute 201.13, the commissioner of health is to report monthly the name, address, date of birth, and county of residence of voting-age deceased residents to the secretary of state.

Presumably the commissioner of health would not issue incomplete reports (read: no motive), the blame then falls elsewhere – namely, at the feet of Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie, whose partisan leanings and curious alliance with vote fraud-magnet ACORN are becoming more salient by the day.

Deputy Secretary of State Jim Gelbmann argues the discrepancies unearthed by the group are merely the result of election workers updating the voter database with faulty information and were not instance of voter fraud.

“I would venture—put my reputation on—the fact that there are very few, if any, people impersonating dead people. You’re going to have human error,” he admitted.

But Jeff Davis, president of Minnesota Majority, believes the situation to be far less benign – and legal – than the Ritchie’s staff is willing to admit.

“The first problem with their explanation is that there should not even be deceased individuals on the voter rolls. The second problem with the secretary of state’s explanation is that it basically acknowledges the lack of controls in the way in which voter history updates are being captured and recorded,” he said. Adding, “If the proper controls had been in place, this situation would not have occurred.”

Whether the peculiar case of 2,800+ deceased individuals casting ballots is a matter of fraud, human error, or resurrection is of little importance at the moment.

According to current recount totals, Democrat Al Franken leads Republican Norm Coleman by a mere 312 votes. If the Minnesota Supreme Court rules in favor of Coleman later this month, which most analysts agree won’t be the case, an additional 4,000 votes will be added to the mix.

When you’re down by such a slim margin, like Team Coleman knows all too well, every vote counts. When you live in a democracy, the very hallmark of which is fair and free elections, every vote should count. But when you live in Minnesota, where the chief election officer is a hyper-partisan louse, “every” vote counts, even after you’re dead!

Story is breaking, get more updates from the source...

It is as simple as pie for a state secretary of state to create a list of dead people to vote. They can obtain a copy of the Social Security Administration’s Death Master file, compare it to the voter roles and in a few seconds have a list of dead people who are registered at vote. See http://www.ntis.gov/products/ssa-dmf.aspx

A liberal, however, would say that a runoff election is extralegal because it was not part of the process outlined before the campaign. I suppose a court could order a runoff, but then the Dean Barkley people would demand inclusion too. I think what will be done is to seat the popular Franken.

Key word is voted. A voter went to the polls if a person was dead before election day there is fraud and since the election is close there is no other resolution then to have another election.

One Somali (Muslim) I know had no clue that Franken was Jewish—cultural one anyway - and was shocked. He cell phoned his buddy in Minneapolis to tell him how crazy he was for voting for a JOO.

Apparently the Somalis voted 110% for Franken.

That would require unimpeachable proof that the election was so badly compromised as to be invalid; but so would every other issue and Candidate race on the ballot along with the Coleman-Franken race.

Well, let's see. First Coleman won by several hundred votes, then in the recount with some ballots thrown out and some intitially excluded ballots allowed in, but military ballots not processed in time to be allowed, Franken ends up winning by about 300 votes. And now we find out that ballots were "cast" by 2812 dead people (or about 9 times Franken's eventual margin of victory after a very problematic recount process). Sounds like a pretty solid case of an election so badly compromised as to be invalid. As for the other ballot issues -- any that were decided by fewer than 2812 votes should be included on the same special election.

Wouldn’t it be awesome if it were shown that 100% of these dead people voted for Stuart Smiley?!

Firt I'd like to see that 100% actually voted. According to the source linked in the source.

"Minnesota Majority then selected a sample of a dozen records for additional investigation. A representative drove to addresses listed on voter registration records. Interviews conducted with residents or neighbors confirmed that at least 5 individuals from the sample were deceased, the latest having died in March 2007."

in the NH election bus loads of voters were shipped up from MA plus in NH GOP observers were not allowed into certain stations

Here in FL we had over 100,000 votes which came form just GA and OH, and yes they were all Dem voters

Now add the illegals, snow birds who vote in their state and then use their vacation address down here in FL then you can bet bozo never won this state and I bet VA,NC,IN, CO never went for bozo either despite all the media and illegal money via prepaid credit cards.

I still say today that bozo never won this election by being fair and if the GOP had balls then they could have clamped on this while making the issue of the black panthers etc

All Norm is saying is that if you count ballots in some precincts you should count them in all precincts.

The same plan Al Gore used in Florida, why does it work in Minnesota?

I don't know but they did elect Jessie The Body Ventura as Governor.

I will eat dog food if Coleman wins this.

Franken is the new Senator, and that’s that.

It’s not fair and it sucks, but that is what WILL happen. Coleman hasn’t won anything else in the courts yet.

Too late to include that in the case though, so Franken will win.

Even so, Coleman would have to prove that the dead voters voted for Franken.

The quick, easy and cheap way to resolve this matter even now is to have a run-off election, Coleman and Franken.

SOS Ritchie is more aware of the vote fraud in the last election than he is letting on. Therefore, he would never approve a runoff election... even if Minnisota law allows such a thing.

Franken is not the new Senator, not yet.

I am not saying Coleman will win. I just want to this to be a costly and painful effort on Franken’s part to get seated. Conservatives need to fight back. In the likely case that Franken gets seated, it will be because of fraud. Note that I did not say elected, I said seated.

It is also another opportunity to expose election fraud. It must be exposed and fought every time it emerges.

Minnesota doesn’t register by party, so you can’t be talking about Minn for “higher percentage of registered Dems” voted. About 29 states do register by party — I have not seen data showing that their turnout was unusually high, or higher than GOP. In a couple of states that I have seen published data, it wasn’t so. Do you have a source??

Here in MA all i would have to do is walk up to the person at the desk and say any name that is listed in her book of thousands of names of local registered voters.. As long as the name wasn’t checked off (like most of them) i could vote for whoever i want.

For years after my granny died i would still see her name listed in the book.

“If 2800+ dead people, more than 6 times the margin of difference, are shown to have voted, that is not unimpeachable proof of a compromised election? What the hell am I missing here? “

I absolutely agree. If Coleman was ahead right now the left, and their friends in the media would be pulling out all stops to have the election invalidated and a run-off instituted.
