Hundreds of dead people are voting in California

Liberals like to tell us there’s no such thing as voter fraud.  But, CBS Los Angeles reported Monday, a review and comparison of records by investigative reporter David Goldstein revealed that hundreds of dead voters in California are still casting ballots — repeatedly.

According to Goldstein:

(John) Cenkner died in Palmdale in 2003. Despite this, records show that he somehow voted from the grave in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2010.

But he’s not the only one.

CBS2 compared millions of voting records from the California Secretary of State’s office with death records from the Social Security Administration and found hundreds of so-called dead voters.

Specifically, 265 in Southern California and a vast majority of them, 215, in Los Angeles County alone.

Wait… “So-called” dead voters?  One is either dead and buried or not.  Someone please explain this to me…

“He took a lot of time choosing his candidates,” said Cenker’s daughter Annette Givans.

Goldstein said he “uncovered 32 dead voters who cast ballots in eight elections apiece, including a woman who died in 1988. Records show she somehow voted in 2014, 26 years after she passed away.”


He further said that it remains “unclear” how these individuals voted.  No, it really isn’t.  Someone cast a ballot in their name.

According to Goldstein, 86 of the dead voters uncovered were registered Republicans, while 146 were Democrats, including Cenkner.

He added:

“He’s a diehard Democrat, and I was thinking that if somebody was voting under his name, he’s probably rolling in his grave if they were voting Republican,” Givans said.

She said her dad always voted at the polls, only now records show someone else may be casting his vote.

Gee, ya think?  There’s more:

“You’re not supposed to have dead people on the rolls,” said J. Christian Adams, who is with the Public Interest Legal Foundation.

“The problem is California has been the most derelict state in the country in implementing statewide databases that are required under federal law. They just blew it off for over a decade,” said Adams.

And we’re supposed to be surprised by this?

Here’s a video report, courtesy of CBS Los Angeles:

This was supposed to change after Congress passed the Help America Vote Act in 2002, but California is still not compliant, and is the only state not complaint with the law.

This is why we have voter ID laws.  Liberals — primarily Democrats — fight laws designed to keep this from happening.

As a result of Goldstein’s report, LA County supervisors called for a full investigation.  That’s good, but they need to implement some form of voter ID to keep this from happening again…
