South Carolina’s attorney general says "dead people" have been voting in the state and he wants it investigated.
Attorney General Alan Wilson has asked the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division to review “evidence of potential voter fraud in the state,” according to a press release issued by his office.
Wilson said the evidence was uncovered by Kevin Shwedo, director of the Department of Motor Vehicles, during an extensive review of data related to the state's new Voter I.D. law.
"Director Shwedo's research has revealed evidence that over nine hundred deceased people appear to have 'voted' in recent elections in South Carolina
," said Wilson. "This is an alarming number, and clearly necessitates an investigation into potential criminal activity. I have asked SLED Chief Keel to review Director Shwedo's research."
