Report: Dead People Voted in New York

Fact checked
Dead people voted in New York state, new report finds

A large number of dead people allegedly voted in a too-close-to-call upstate New York congressional race, according to an attorney.

Rep.  Anthony Brindisi is just 12 to 13 votes ahead of Republican challenger Claudia Tenney in the most recent count of votes for New York’s 22nd congressional seat.

Tenney was up by about 27,000 votes before absentee ballots for Brindisi were counted and evaporated her lead.

The New York Post reports that Madison County attorney Tina Wayland-Smith has stated that votes by dead people were illegally cast in the race:

Madison County Attorney Tina Wayland-Smith reported that election officials there disqualified absentee ballots filed by three “deceased” voters” in a filing with state Supreme Court Justice Scott Del Conte, who is overseeing the count in Oswego County. [Emphasis added]

This is a known problem of voting by mail. It should be investigated,” said Doug Kellner, co-chairman of the board, noting that it’s a crime for someone to mail in a ballot in the name of a dead person. [Emphasis added]

It is an election fraud. It’s a felony,” he said. [Emphasis added] reports: A 2012 study by Pew Center on the States’ Election Initiatives revealed that there are 24 million ineligible or inaccurate voter registrations on state voter rolls. This means 1-in-8 voter registrations are either no longer valid or invalid.
