Shit, Chicago has nothing on Florida it seems
State officials this year checked Social Security files and concluded that people who died were still registered to vote. This was the first time the state checked the files. It was allowed under a controversial election law that passed the GOP-controlled Legislature last year.
Holy cow, someone isn’t doing their fucking job here.
Really, 53 fucking thousand dead voters that are still eligible?
Makes me wonder how many of them are still cashing Social Security checks every month.
I will be the first to admit I don’t know exactly how this process is supposed to work but when someone kicks the bucket there is a death certificate issued and usually a death notice put in the paper by surviving family memberes.
Does the death certificate not get sent to SOMEONE in the government who is supposed to let the rest of agencies know?
Maybe we do need a Death Panel, to get the word out that these people will not be voting in the future as they are now permanently kicking up daisies.
The usual dysfunctional bureaucies hard at work as usual, avoiding any.
On a positive note, at least if they can’t vote that means they can’t donate to the fucking Republicans either.
