"900 Dead People Voted In SC"

So Democrats claim that there is no evidence of vote fraud? Try this story from WYFF TV Channel 4 in Greenville, SC (January 11, 2012):

South Carolina’s attorney general is asking for an investigation into possible voter fraud in the state.
On Wednesday, Attorney General Alan Wilson asked State Law Enforcement Division Chief Mark Keel to review evidence of potential voter fraud in the state.
Wilson said the evidence of fraud was uncovered by Director of the Department of Motor Vehicles Kevin Shwedo during an extensive review of data related to the state's new voter identification law.
"Director Shwedo's research has revealed evidence that over 900 deceased people appear to have 'voted' in recent elections in South Carolina," said Wilson. "This is an alarming number, and clearly necessitates an investigation into potential criminal activity. I have asked SLED Chief Keel to review Director Shwedo's research." . . .

And lest people say "Oh, that's just 0.04% of the voting population of the state," I would point out that 900 is significantly more than the 537 votes, or 0.009% of the Florida voting population, that was the difference between President Bush and President Gore.

Let's be clear on this. The Director of DMV has no access to the records of who has or has not voted. He can not tell if you or I voted. He has access through the record keeping and the Motor Voter Act to see who is registered, but being registered and actually voting are two separate things. Also, I was a clerk at the polls this Saturday and two women reported that the husbands had passed away and were still on the books. The reason they were still on the books was not an example of fraud, but a example that no one reported them deceased. When they reported that, I called the election office and they were removed. Any claim of fraud should be investigated, but the Attorney General should not announce an allegation as a fact in the absence of an investigation. Also, while there is a possibility that fraud could have happened there, we should remember that before there were voting machines, dead people were regular voters, sometimes whole cemeteries voted. We should always investigate any allegation of fraud, but let's move forward, not backwards. Oh, and I am not a democrat.
