    Given the ineptitude the left espouses was rampant during the ‘Bush years’ is it any wonder they didn’t find any? Kinda ironic really.

    It is ILLEGAL for them to NOT turn in the registration form. The voter registrar is responsible for certifying if someone is eligible to vote.

    Can you imagine the howler monkeys reaction if Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck voter registration forms were found in Acorns trash?

    Yeah, the more it goes on and the more other people speak, it appears to be more of the same ol' smoke screens and the dangling of brightly colored bangles the right have been doing for decades.

    State Election Commission spokesman Chris Whitmire says the agency gets regular updates from the state vital statistics office and removes from the rolls voters who have died.

    He doesn't know why more than 900 dead people show up has having voted, but doesn't think it's necessarily fraud. "We want to know what's going on. We want to get to the bottom of it and figure out if this is going on and, if it is, find out what's happening and stop it."

    He says it's possible they could be clerical errors. For example, if John Smith, Jr. goes to vote and his name is right below John Smith, Sr., who died recently, a poll worker might accidentally fill in the box for Senior, showing that he voted.

    "There could be a problem with the data or the way that the data was compared against each other. We just don't know at this point," Whitmire says.
