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...

Surprise! They all voted for Al Franken.

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

Yeah right. Would you have us believe that Minnesota's voter turn out was nearly 98% of eligible voters? B.S. That's just not possible.

Here in New Jersey, a number of callers to a local radio station before the state primaries said they were surprised to find they were registered as Democrats when they had never done so themselves in the past.

I see a pattern here and I see ACORNS behind it!!!

DUmocrats can’t get elected without vote fraud...they’ve already aborted their future which is why they need all the “new” DUmocrat voters in the form of illegals, felons, deceased voters, etc. Every election cycle they have to push “get-out-the-vote” programs such as SMOKES FOR VOTES, BOOZE FOR VOTES, CRACK FOR VOTES, SEX FOR VOTES among others and engage in MASSIVE FRAUD to get elected.

Good grief!! I can see whereby the dead people might not have been removed from registered voter lists in a timely manner, but the fact that THEY VOTED means that someone both, knew who they were, and placed votes in their names. This could only be done through intentional fraud.

Inch by inch.

"Those who sell their liberty for security are understandable, if pitiable, creatures. Those who sell the liberty of others for wealth, power, or even a moment’s respite, deserve only the end of a rope... America’s historic misfortune is that her people have seldom been equal to the ideals upon which their nation was established. "— L. Neil Smith, The American Zone (2001)

It's our failure to remove these scum from office for their malfeasance that has lead us to this. Between the Two-card Monty being shuffled around by the Dims and the Repubs and our failure to just take matters into our own hands... We've instigated our own "epic failure" as citizens.

It’s just my opinion folks, but this is the tip of the iceberg, and we’re not talking about one state either.

It has been my opinion that the Democrats knew who were dead, and who were not voting. So they sent in people to vote for these two groups of ‘missing’ voters. If a person was registered as a democrat, they voted.

I believe a cursory review of the percentages of registered Democrats who voted in this last election, would reveal that they were extremely high.

The Democrats have generally out-registered Republicans. The problem was, people who are hounded to register, are by and large not motivated to go out and vote. Therefore the Democrats never get almost all their people to vote.

In this last election, strangely enough they did.

IMO, there’s no doubt whatsoever that there was a massive effort to make sure every registered Democrat had a vote cast in their name.

I don’t think this is limited to dead voters folks. I believe there was a massive orchestrated wave of voter fraud in the 2008 general election.

It’s one thing to go pick up granny from a nursing home and make sure she votes. It’s another thing entirely, to study the records and find that she never votes, and get someone to go down and do it for her.

Anyone that will put out an effort at voter fraud to the level that ACORN did, isn’t going to stop at registering Mickey Mouse... He’ll vote for Mickey too.

We are assured that only a small number of legitimate votes are canceled by vacant lots, dead people, trees, pets, illegals, vacationing New Yorkers (in Florida), and extra-dimensional addresses occupying the null-space of neighborhood numbering schemes.

How they got there and who they consistently vote for is unimportant - only that the problem is small enough to ignore.

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

If only it were that easy. Believe me, the screaming would start right here at FR the moment SCOTUS invalidated a State’s Election, and ordered a new contest. 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.

That’s an extremely tall order, and I don’t think it’s a new legal precedent that anyone on the Left or the Right wants to set.

At least not yet...

I’m pretty sure that Al Franken is going to be seated, and he will be Minnesota’s problem. Undeniably his vote will go to the Democrats, but at the same time, Al won’t have the luxury of sitting on his ass in the office while his lawyer does his talking for him. I think it will be a matter of time until Al reverts to character and becomes every bit the National embarrassment that I expect him to be. I know of several reporters who would be highly qualified to bait Franken into dropping an “F” bomb at a news conference...

I doubt very highly that Franken will be making many close personal friends in the Senate as a new Freshman...maybe he and Roland “Tombstone” Burris can share and office, since Neither of them has a snowball’s chance in hell of serving more than one term.

My take on elections:

“America is at that awkward stage. It’s too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.” —opening lines of 101 Things To Do’Til The Revolution by Claire Wolfe

“Voting” is working within the system. It is a Dagney Taggart thing as opposed to a John Galt thing.
