The people have won another small but important battle in the fight for election integrity.
The state of Pennsylvania has agreed to purge 21,000 dead voters from their registration rolls before the next general elections. The concession comes as the result of a lawsuit launched by the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF). The suit alleged Pennsylvania had failed to comply with its own “motor voter” laws that require the state to discard ballots from deceased voters.
It seems unthinkable that it would take a lawsuit for a state to stop accepting votes from dead voters, but here we are.
According to the Daily Signal, the PILF provided the names of the 21,000 dead voters as they demanded the state be held to account for their own voting laws.
The foundation alleged that in an October analysis it found at least 21,000 apparently deceased citizens on the state’s voter rolls, according to the complaint.
“This case is about ensuring that those deceased registrants are not receiving ballots,” said J. Christian Adams, Public Interest Legal Foundation president and general counsel, according to the press release. “This case isn’t complicated. For nearly a year, we’ve been offering specific data on deceased registrants to Pennsylvania officials for proper handling ahead of what was expected to be a tight outcome on Election Day.”
“When you push mail voting, your voter list maintenance mistakes made years ago will come back to haunt in the form of unnecessary recipients and nagging questions about unreturned or outstanding ballots,” he continued.
The lawsuit further alleged that 92% of the apparently deceased individuals identified have been dead since October 2019, according to the press release. More than 200 of the individuals identified voted in 2016 and 2018, after federally listed dates of death, the lawsuit alleged.
The suit was filed in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania. PILF’s president says the victory marks an important turning point in the fight for election integrity.
“This marks an important victory for the integrity of elections in Pennsylvania,” Public Interest Legal Foundation President J. Christian Adams said. “The commonwealth’s failure to remove deceased registrants created a vast opportunity for voter fraud and abuse. It is important to not have dead voters active on the rolls for five, 10, or even 20 years. This settlement fixes that.”
Over 9,000 of the names provided had been dead for at least five years or more.
““When you push mail voting, your voter list maintenance mistakes made years ago will come back to haunt in the form of unnecessary recipients and nagging questions about unreturned or outstanding ballots,” he continued.”
Or come back to serve you, depending on your party. Funny how many states denied the possibility of any election fraud in 2020 but are now taking steps and passing laws to address the very accusations of fraud they denied existed.
Let’s watch and see if Democrats contest this further.
“It seems unthinkable that it would take a lawsuit for a state to stop accepting votes from dead voters, but here we are.”
There’s no evidence that any state accepted a significant numbers of votes from dead voters to begin with. It certainly happens on occasion, but that’s because there are sometimes living voters who submit a fully lawful early ballot, and then die before election day.
The fact that there were 21,000 dead people still on the voter rolls does not mean that 21,000 votes were cast using their names. It only means that the rolls need to be kept current. It truly shouldn’t take a law suit to have those names removed, but the fact that it did doesn’t mean the state was accepting votes from 21,000 dead voters.
This is an example of how subtly dishonest statements are effectively used by propagandists as tools of manipulation. It’s a pervasive disinformation technique. If you want to be the owner of your own mind, don’t assume for a moment that it isn’t deliberate.
“There’s no evidence that any state accepted a significant numbers of votes from dead voters to begin with. ”
Actually, there is. Refusing to look at the evidence doesn’t mean it isn’t there. There’s a reason Democrats consistently object to and oppose cleaning up voting rolls. Those are potential DEMOCRAT votes.
“Actually, there is.”
NO, there ISN’T. Which is why no one can state specifically what the evidence is and provide links to reputable sources backing the claim up, any more than Trump can provide evidence supporting his lies about “massive voter fraud” and “a landslide victory”.
Again, closing your ears and “LA, LA, LA, LA”ing doesn’t mean the evidence doesn’t exist or make it go away.
Thousands of dead, non-resident and double votes in Nevada
1500 dead 42,000 voting multiple times and tens of thousands of voters that live in RV parks in Nevada
10,000 dead voting in Michigan
You avoid credible sources and only entertain non-credible sources that have been proven to lie numerous times.
Blind and stupid is no way to go through life. You got played on Russian collusion. You just can’t admit to it. YOUR political party is a fraud machine. Here’s some of your fellow Democrat party members.
