765 Cases Of Potential Voter Fraud Found In NC

From Fox News:

Hundreds of cases of potential voter fraud uncovered in North Carolina

April 03, 2014

State elections officials in North Carolina are investigating hundreds of cases of potential voter fraud after identifying thousands of registered voters with personal information matching those of voters who voted in other states in 2012.

Elections Director Kim Strach told state lawmakers at an oversight hearing Wednesday that her staff has identified 765 registered North Carolina voters who appear to have cast ballots in two states during the 2012 presidential election.

Oh, come one. We’re assured by Eric Holder and our one party news media that voter fraud is as scarce as hen’s teeth.

Strach said the first names, last names, birthdates and last four digits of their Social Security numbers appear to match information for voters in another state. Each case will now be investigated to determine whether voter fraud occurred.

"Could it be voter fraud? Sure, it could be voter fraud," Strach said. "Could it be an error on the part of a precinct person choosing the wrong person’s name in the first place? It could be. We’re looking at each of these individual cases."

WRAL.com reported that 81 residents who died before election day were recorded as casting a ballot. While about 30 of those voters appear to have legally cast ballots before election day, Strach said "there are between 40 and 50 [voters] who had died at a time that that’s not possible."

"We have the ‘Walking Dead,’ and now we’ve got the ‘Voting Dead,’" said state Sen. Bob Rucho, R-Mecklenburg. "I guess the reason there’s no proof of voter fraud is because we weren’t looking for it."

A law passed last year by the Republican-dominated state legislature required elections staff to check information for North Carolina’s more than 6.5 million voters against a database containing information for 101 million voters in 28 states…

And we all remember how the Democrats and their media minions howled when this law was passed. And now we know why.

Voting rights advocate Bob Phillips of Common Cause NC told WRAL.com that while he is concerned about the report, it still doesn’t justify requiring voters to present photo ID at the polls.

"I think a lot of [lawmakers] are saying, ‘Aha, this proves what we did,’" Phillips said. "But if I have an ID, how is that going to stop me from voting in North Carolina if I’ve already voted in Florida?"

And never mind that evidence of one kind of voter fraud should indicate that there are other kinds as well.

    Oh c’mon Bob. This is your “argument”? Tell me, would you use let one (or any) of your opponents use that argument? I would imagine that that very thing has happened and you “argued” the exact opposite side of it.

    The logic escape trap obviously isn’t working in your head. Or if it is, you happily ignore it. I suspect the latter, thus making you yet another useful idiot in the march to socialism.

    The larger pictures shows a total of almost 36k people potentially voting twice; that is people with the same first and last name, and date of birth voting in two different states. It gets narrowed down when you match the last 4 digits of the ssn to the 765 number. Just running some rough math, it would be hard to determine the odds that people would have the same and first last name. That would all depend on how common the name is nationally. However, if they have the same first and last name, the odds that they would have the same birthday is 1:365 or 0.27%. I doubt that if you looked at all the 146 million registered voters, you would find a total of 36k with the same first and last name and dob.
