BE­WARE THE ’GHOST VOT­ERS’

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

“Some 3.5 mil­lion more peo­ple are reg­is­tered to vote in the U.S. than are alive among Amer­ica’s adult cit­i­zens. Such stag­ger­ing in­ac­cu­racy is an en­graved in­vi­ta­tion to voter fraud,” writes Na­tional Re­view con­tribut­ing ed­i­tor Deroy Mur­dock, who pored over damn­ing U.S. Cen­sus Bureau data com­piled by Ju­di­cial Watch.

The na­tion has a big pop­u­la­tion of “ghost vot­ers,” he says.

“My tab­u­la­tion of Ju­di­cial Watch’s state-by-state re­sults yielded 462 coun­ties where the regis­tra­tion rate ex­ceeded 100 per­cent. There were 3,551,760 more peo­ple reg­is­tered to vote than adult U.S. cit­i­zens who in­habit these coun­ties,” says Mr. Mur­dock.

Some coun­ties had quite a few phan­tom vot­ers. Wash­ing­ton’s Clark County, for in­stance, has 166,811. Cal­i­for­nia’s Sand Diego County. how­ever, has 810,966 over­reg­is­tra­tions, while Los An­ge­les County has 707,4750 Mr. Mur­dock said, re­fer­ring to Cal­i­for­nia it­self as a “haunted house teem­ing with 1,736,556 ghost vot­ers.” Such num­bers could cer­tainly sway any elec­tion. “Whether Amer­i­cans con­sider voter fraud a Repub­li­can hoax, a Demo­cratic tac­tic, or some­thing in between, ev­ery­one should agree that it’s past time to ex­or­cise ghost vot­ers from the polls,” ad­vises Mr. Mur­dock.
