SC Attorney General: Hundreds of Dead Citizens Have Voted in Recent Elections

According to South Carolina's Republican Attorney General,  recent South Carolina elections have featured hundreds of dead citizens voting. From the AP:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – South Carolina's attorney general has notified the U.S. Justice Department of potential voter fraud.

Attorney General Alan Wilson sent details of an analysis by the Department of Motor Vehicles to U.S. Attorney Bill Nettles.

In a letter dated Thursday, Wilson says the analysis found 953 ballots cast by voters listed as dead. In 71 percent of those cases, ballots were cast between two months and 76 months after the people died. That means they "voted" up to 6 1/3 years after their death.

The letter doesn't say in which elections the ballots were cast.

The analysis came out of research for the state's new voter identification law. The U.S. Justice Department denied clearance of that law.

Wilson told Nettles he asked the State Law Enforcement Division to investigate.

This follows an explosive video from New Hampshire which demonstrated the ease with which potential voter fraud can occur without voter ID.

But remember folks-Voter ID requirements are a solution in search of a problem.

    I would like to see the people who attempted voter fraud in NH arrested there is a 5k fine for voter fraud- why are o-keefe and company still free to break the law? and this study has no bones- they cannot even prove how far back in the elections they went to cull through and find these % wise teeny tiny instances of voter fraud– voter id laws are a poll tax and hark back to Jim Crow NC does not need to get on this demented bandwagon

    I would think any site that claimed any type of journalistic integrity would correct this disinformation as it was recently proven to be a LIE what a shock and instead of 900 it was 6 gee conservatives love to hyperbolize their lies don't they… and of the 6 here are the REAL, FACTUAL results that you will never see from someone of Neal Inmans caliber..
    One was an absentee ballot cast by a voter who then died before election day;
    Another was the result of an error by a poll worker who mistakenly marked the voter as Samuel Ferguson, Jr. when the voter was in fact Samuel Ferguson, III;
    Two were the result of stray marks on the voter registration list detected by the scanner – again, a clerical error;
    The final two were the result of poll managers incorrectly marking the name of the voter in question instead of the voter listed either above or below on the list.
