Posted on 06/04/2009 7:59:46 AM PDT by james.richardson
A review of Minnesotas statewide database of registered voters revealed at least 2,812 deceased individuals voted in last Novembers general election, according to a new report by the traditional values advocacy group Minnesota Majority.
After obtaining the list of voters who participated in Novembers 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 ventureput my reputation onthe fact that there are very few, if any, people impersonating dead people. Youre 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 Ritchies 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 states 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 wont be the case, an additional 4,000 votes will be added to the mix.
When youre 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 youre dead!

Minnesota’s Shame: The wholesale disenfranchisement of absentee military voters.
ACORN workers have been convicted of voter fraud in the past:
If the GOP cannot stop federal funding for a convicted vote fraud operation like ACORN, why should the GOP exist?
The “courts” didn’t throw it out, Zero’s justice department is trying to end it.
It appears they did end it per the Georgia SOS.
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.

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.
Will people in Minnesota please post to newspaper/TV blogs about this!
From the article:
“A review of Minnesotas statewide database of registered voters revealed at least 2,812 deceased individuals voted in last Novembers general election...”
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.
You don’t say...
and I wouldn't vote for him even then
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.
Israel has often pondered that same question through out history, the answer from God was always the same.
Oh no you have introduced logic, what will we do now?
That’s same percentage as Hussein’s Iraq!
