Some Say "Voter Fraud Doesn't Exist," But Dead People are Voting

Matt Clark, writing for the Long Island Newsday newspaper, reports that Nassau County, NY has 6,100 dead people on its voter rolls.

270 of these dead voters, the paper says, are still lively when it comes to voting. One of them has voted 14 times, at least one other, twice, since passing on to their eternal reward.

Nearby Suffolk County, Clark reports, has 2,490 dead voters on its rolls, with 50 voting since their death. Across the state, 26,500 dead voters remain on the voting rolls, the paper says.

What's more, across New York, 842,000 registered voters have not voted in more than ten years. Many of these people are likely to be voting elsewhere now, but they are still eligible to vote in New York.

The paper opines that clerical errors, not fraud, is likely to be the reason dead voters have voted in New York. Possibly so -- although it is definitely odd that one dead man has had 14 clerical errors happen to him.

The fact that more than three quarters of a million voters may still be listed as eligible to vote when they aren't lends itself to the conclusion that government officials are not making clean elections a priority.

"Voter fraud doesn't exist," said Ed Schultz of America's "Progressive Community," MSNBC, in the video clip above. With possibly as many as 842,000 ineligible voters still listed as eligible in just one state, how can he possibly know that's true?
