It would be a funny Zombie joke if it was not true and so impactful. According to Public Interest Legal Foundation:
The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) has put 141 counties on notice across the United States that they have more registered voters than people alive. PILF has sent 141 statutory notice letters to county election officials in 21 states.
This is not just an academic exercise. These zombie voters can have a real effect on elections and these disastrous messed-up voter rolls make vote fraud much easier. As PILF’s J. Christian Adams commented:
“Corrupted voter rolls provide the perfect environment for voter fraud,” said J. Christian Adams, President and General Counsel of PILF. “Close elections tainted by voter fraud turned control of the United States Senate in 2009. Too much is at stake in 2016 to allow that to happen again.”0
The vote fraud in 2008, which has been proven in scores of ways including a study published in the left leaning Washington Post, led to the passage of Obamacare.
Even President Obama’s Commission on Election Administration agrees that the cleaning up of voter rolls is important.
It is unfortunate that President Obama’s Justice Department does not. As Public Interest Legal Foundation points out:
Lawyers for PILF have previously brought lawsuits against other counties that failed to clean up voter rolls after receiving a notice letter. The notice letters also seek access to public information about voter roll maintenance efforts. The United States Justice Department also can bring lawsuits to fix corrupted voter rolls but has failed to do so during the Obama administration.
Until a new President is elected that actually cares about voter disenfranchisement, Zombie voting will not be a joke but a real problem.
