Michigan issues non-denial of dead voters list – Dateway

The Michigan State Department on Thursday released an open denial of reports that dead people are listed as having voted on Michigan’s voting status database.

Here is the statement they sent:

Ballots for deceased voters are rejected in Michigan, even if the voter voted by mail and died before election day. On rare occasions, a ballot received for a living voter may be recorded in such a way as to give the impression that the voter is dead. This may be due to voters with similar names, where the ballot is accidentally recorded as voted by John Smith Sr while it was voted by John Smith Jr; or due to incorrectly recorded dates of birth in the register of qualified voters; for example, a person born in 1990 accidentally registered as born in 1890. In such scenarios, no one ineligible has actually voted and there is no impact on the outcome of the election. Local clerks can correct the problem when it is brought to their attention.

Note the non-denial that the deceased are on the lists and have voted.

Instead, they simply describe how the system is supposed to work, which everyone already knows.

Only your patronage to our store is what keeps this beacon of truth lit in narrative controlled darkness.

They let the media fill in the blanks for them.

For example, Snopes wrote an article titled “RUMOR ALERT: William Bradley and ‘Dead’ Voters in Michigan” with the subheading “More Evidence Needed Before This Claim Can Be Evaluated in a Verification traditional facts from Snopes, but official sources have refuted it. “

Denying can mean “to prove (someone) wrong” or “to deny or contradict (a statement or an accusation)”, Snopes undoubtedly wants readers to believe they did the first one, while at most you could say they did the second.

Business Insider published an article titled: “Michigan Says ‘Dead Voters’ Conspiracy Theory Shared by Donald Trump Jr. Likely Result of Registration Error.”

The article itself falsely claimed that only one deceased person had voted, then cited the Brennan Center of former CIA Director and ex-Communist John Brennan for pooping the idea that voter fraud exists ( the Brennan Center simultaneously claims that Russia is “ interfered with in our election ”, notably by the “ suppression of the voters ”).

From Business Insider:

The Michigan State Department has denied a viral conspiracy theory alleging that a deceased person voted in the 2020 presidential election.

the theory, popularized by conservative social media personality Austen Fletcher (@Fleccas), claims that a Michigan man named William Bradley, who died in 1984, voted in Wayne County, Michigan. The tweet, published early Thursday morning, was retweeted by Donald Trump Jr. and amassed more than 50,000 retweets on Thursday evening.

The claim is that several dead voters were listed on the Michigan Voting Status Database website as having voted.

One was 118 years old, another 119 years old and another 120 years old.

To pretend that it was just one person is pure straw and misinformation.

Jake Rollow, the director of communications for the Michigan State Department, told Insider in an email that ballots from deceased voters are rejected by the state, but that “ on rare occasions a ballot receipt for a living voter can be recorded in a way that gives the impression that the voter is dead.

The Michigan State Department also responded directly to Fletcher’s tweet, calling the claim misinformation. Twitter did not call the tweet misinformation, as it did with several false election statements, but added a flag letting users know how “voting by mail is safe and secure.”

The Michigan State Department Voter Index appears to show that a William Bradley, born in 1902, voted by mail in the presidential election, Insider has discovered. According to the Michigan Residents Database, a people finder website that uses data from the state’s public registers, the voter status of a 118-year-old William Bradley has been challenged. Insider has not been able to verify the allegations that a William Bradley died in 1984.

According to Rollow, the late William Bradley’s ballot erroneously appears on Michigan’s voter roll for two reasons – neither of which constitutes voter fraud.

The explanation that seems most likely is that the program yielded search results for the fake William Bradley, showing the vote of a living person along with the voting records of a deceased person of the same name.

RocketReach, a contact index for professionals, shows that there are two William Bradleys living in the Detroit area. Neither man immediately responded to Insider’s emails asking if they had voted in the election. Spokeo, a research program that collects public information online about people, also revealed a Detroit-area William Bradley, but the phone numbers associated with that person were not in service.

A ballot may also run as a dead voter if the ballot is recorded with incorrect birthdates, such as 1890 traded with 1990, Rollow said.

A 2007 report on voter fraud from the Brennan Center For Justice at New York University, a public policy think tank, noted that there are only a “handful” of documented cases where it appears that the name of a deceased person was in fact used to vote. The report went on to say that record discrepancies, such as those mentioned by Rollow, are often to blame. A 2007 assessment of 100 “dead voters” found that every instance was the result of a data, clerical, or match error, according to the report. [Emphasis added]

If you can’t trust the former Communist CIA director who authorized drone strikes on American citizens, who can you trust, folks ?!

Lists of additional presumed dead voters are running through their system and being compiled as we speak.

The fact that Michigan officials don’t outright deny it may be a sign that where there is smoke, there is fire.
