Georgia vote fraud tops 100,000
November 4, 2008
The investigation has come about due to a report by TV news stations in Atlanta, Orlando, Tampa, and Cincinnati who compared voter rolls in Georgia with those in Florida and Ohio. The investigative journalists found more than 100,000 names that appear to be registered in more than one state.
Georgia’s master record of voters has 42,000 people on it who are also apparently registered in Florida, according to WSBTV.com. At least four instances of double voting have been uncovered already.
Republican Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel says the lack of a federal database to track voter registration leaves "an extremely high potential" for voter fraud: "This is extraordinarily disturbing ... Does our system just trust that people won’t vote twice? From the federal level, yes pretty much."
