Jersey’s Zombie Voters.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 8:16 pm

A New Jersey Superior Court judge recently ordered the State of New Jersey to compile a list of all the State’s residents who have died (at age eighteen or older) since 1985. The order arises from a complaint by Republicans that approximately 13,000 people who have died since then still remain on the voting rolls. Indeed, 4,755 of these dead folks managed somehow to vote in last November’s elections!

The State Registrar of Vital Statistics is supposed to file an annual report of deaths in the state, which is then supposed to be provided to the state’s counties to permit the names of the dead people to be removed from the voting rolls.

So, why hasn’t the State Registrar of Vital Statistics been providing the lists? Are you ready?
He did not know that it was his responsibility.

The Jersey Political Swamp still percolates. You can’t make this shit up.

  1. All depends… are these dead Democrats or dead Republicans? Has Zogby conducted any polls in NJ cemetaries?

    Please keep us up to date.

  2. I didn’t know that Chicago was located in Jersey. I may need a refresher course in my national geography… 😉

  3. Bou,

    I’ll be on the lookout for these folks tomorrow. They should be pretty easy to find, because I suspect that they’re pretty disheveled and not just a little smelly.

    Oh, and they’ll also be wearing Corzine buttons. (I couldn’t resist.)

  4. Perhaps Jimmy Hoffa is still voting.

    Gives a new meaning to the saying, “If the spirit is willing….”

  5. Sounds like your Registrar has been taking lessons from the Gov of Louisianna… wasn’t that what she whined after Katrina? I didn’t know I was supposed to do that.

    Anyhow, I figure he must not have gotten the memo from the IL dems telling him how to pull that stunt without calling attention to it. After all IL has worked it into an art form.
