I don't expect anything to come of this - nothing ever does where electoral fraud is concerned. It will be forgotten within a week if anyone even takes note of it. But worth noting, nonetheless, that they found 953 cast ballots of dead people.

They're trying to make a case for their Voter ID law that's been challenged.

Questions of fraud in Iowa and now SC. Yeah, Republicans never have voting cheats—just Democrats.
That and there was some problem earlier with SC voting machines. NH and PA need to get rid of Diebold... f'er chrissakes I thought every state did away with those things.

Probably will end up just like the Kris Kobach debacle here in Kansas. Kobach said he identified 1700 or so cases of voter fraud. This was basically what he based his campaign on. After the investigation was all said and done, after the election mind you, there were 2 cases of actual voter fraud.

Waste. Of. Time. And a waste of state taxpayer money.

In the Kobach case you would be absolutely wrong. He used voter fraud as a way to get elected. It was what he campaigned on. Even when the job he was running for(Sec. of State) doesn't involve any aspect of that.

I understand that can be used as a pretext to commit fraud as Gore also did. But a check can never be a waste as it will bear out the truth including about the culprit. That's all I meant.

Well, there's more to this story now, than just dead people voting.

Look what happened during the vote counting process in violation of state law. See below link and read the whole thing. Look at how they denied the right to observe counting and certification to the Paul campaign which is their right under the law. Note all the other irregularities and violations in the counting process.

If this can be traced back to anyone in the Gingrich campaign, or by his backers then this dude is more corrupt than we thought. On top of all this Rand Paul is being detained by the TSA. We really do live in a fascism. Remember this is the state of Lindsey Graham who is a nasty fascist punk!

Election Commission Refutes Dead Voter Claim
Dead voters may not have voted after all

By Reilly Moore 1:21 pm

The South Carolina Election Commission on Wednesday disputed claims that more than 900 dead voters cast ballots during the 2010 election.

Election Commission Director Marci Andino testified before the House Election Laws Subcommittee that her staff had confirmed a small sample of the dead voter claims to be false.

DMV Director Kevin Shwedo initially made the claim about the dead voters in early January, and South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson then ordered an investigation.

Andino said the Election Commission received the names of six suspected dead voters in Abbeville County and confirmed that, in fact, none of the voters had cast a post-mortem ballot.


One of the voters cast an absentee ballot before dying
One voter, Samuel Ferguson Jr., was mistakenly marked as his deceased father, Samuel Ferguson III
Two of the voters were the result of stray marks on the voter registration list
Two of the voters were the result of poll managers incorrectly marking the the name of the dead voter instead of the name above it or below it on the list


"Charges of voter fraud are serious," Andino said in a release. "If even one fraudulent vote has been cast, that is one too many."

The Election Commission was not provided with the full list of suspected dead voters, so they could not confirm information about the other voters in question.

A spokesman for the Attorney General's office said no conclusions should be drawn about the small sample of suspected dead voters Andino examined.

"Andino is not operating off of the same list (950+ voters) that was given to SLED for investigation," Communications Director Mark Plowden said in an email to Patch. "Until SLED has completed its work, no one will know anything. It is incredibly premature to take a list of six random voters from a single county and proclaim the case is closed."

However, while Andino did not have access to the full list of suspected dead voters, the election commission confirmed that the few names they were provided came directly from the list provided to SLED.

Because of the claims, the election commission also investigated whether any of the 37,000 deceased voters listed in the DMVs database had requested absentee ballots for the 2012 South Carolina Primary.

They found that 10 of those voters had requested ballots, but confirmed that none of the voters in question were actually dead.

The allegations have resulted in further discussion of South Carolina's Voter ID law, which passed in 2011, but was rejected by the Justice Department in December.

Wilson's office announced in early January that it would appeal the decision.
