How many other dead people have registered to vote in other counties that are not the father of a judge? The only reason this was caught was because the clerk recognized the name of Mr. Claybrook. We have no way of knowing how widespread voter fraud is because one party blocks any efforts to verify that the person casting the ballot is whom he or she says that they are.

RICHMOND — The FBI and local police are investigating how at least 19 dead Virginians were recently re-registered to vote in this critical swing state.

One case came to light after relatives of a deceased man received a note congratulating him for registering, Rockingham County Commonwealth’s Attorney Marsha Garst said Thursday.

“His family members were very distraught,” said Garst, who confirmed the existence of the FBI and police investigation but said she could provide few details because the case is ongoing.

All 19 were initially registered as voters in the Shenandoah Valley city of Harrisonburg, although a clerk double-checking the entries later raised questions about one. She recognized the name of Richard Allen Claybrook Sr., who died in 2014 at age 87, because his son is a well-known local judge. She happened to recall that the judge’s father had died.

We only hear about the cases that get caught. This isn't something that is even investigated most places. There have been people walk in to vote in other people's names and no one questions them. This guy picked the wrong names to register.

Oh good grief - dead people on voter rolls have nothing to do with voter fraud

Trump, in an ABC News interview Wednesday, cited that Pew report as evidence of his claim of widespread voter fraud. But the Pew report makes no suggestion that large numbers of people cast ballots fraudulently.

In fact, the author of that study, David Becker, told the New York Times and others in 2012 when the study was released — that the poor record keeping was not evidence of fraud at polling places.

“These bad records are not leading to fraud but could lead to the perception of fraud,” Becker told the Times.

State officials in charge of voting have also said they do not believe any of the discrepancies in registration systems are nefarious in nature or signs of voter fraud

Nothing to do with voter fraud? Really? A dead person registers to vote and someone posts that it has nothing to do with voter fraud? Obviously, a liberal that wants dead people to register to vote. This guy died in 2014 but registered to vote in 2018. But no voter fraud here. Talk about an ignorant post.

True, it's the cockroach syndrome.

If you turn on the light and see one cockroach, there are many more that you don't see...

And of course, you didn't bother to read my link and instead just want to go off another one of your tangents about "liberals". Par for the course with you.

It has more to do with outdated Voter Registration systems, again, has nothing to do with voter fraud.

It could have 'something' to do with it, if they were registered - that remains to be seen however. If it was a computer error or poor record keeping, I'd understand the point that is made in your link. But these people were evidently registered to vote by an unnamed, private group at James Madison University. The language suggest that if this group was known, there would be charges filed. It's under investigation and I'm interested to hear more.

Colorado has it's own dead people registering thing going on.

Your link has NOTHING to do with the topic. It's trying to go off in a tangent. Do you understand that Mr Claybrook DIED in 2014 but registered to vote in 2018??? How the hell is that not voter fraud? 19 other dead people registered to vote in that same county. This was only discovered because someone recognized the name. This wasn't an outdated voter registration system. This wasn't a purging of the database. THIS WAS AN ATTEMPT AT VOTER FRAUD! You know the very thing you say isn't a problem.

And you still don't apparently know the difference between voter registration fraud vs. actual voter fraud.

Registration fraud is bigger, but in most cases, it is caught.

Your article even states as much


House Minority Leader David J. Toscano (D-Charlottesville) said the case was not proof of voter fraud because no one had actually managed to cast a vote in the names of the dead.


“First of all, there was no voter fraud — they caught him,” Toscano said.
