Michigan Woman: died in 2008, found in 2014… and voted in 2010.

Gee, I wonder who she voted for.

Voting records in Oakland County show [Pia] Farrenkopf, who has not been positively identified by the Medical Examiner’s Office, is shown as voting in the November 2010 gubernatorial election.

Pontiac city records indicate Farrenkopf registered to vote in 2006 and had not voted until 2010, but officials point out that could have been an administrative error and she may not have actually cast a vote.

The city clerk, who was not in that job in 2010, said infrequent voters tend to vote in presidential elections, like 2008, over gubernatorial elections like the one in 2010.

Which is why every single suspicious-minded pundit (Hi!) in the country is instead looking at that report and coming to a somewhat simpler conclusion: time to have the state of Michigan at least start an investigation into possible election fraud.  I’m sorry, but when you get a report that a woman whose corpse has been sitting in a garage for six years has nonetheless somehow voted in 2010, you check that out.  There is no way anybody can justify not investigating that. This is textbook voter fraud stuff: find somebody registered to vote who didn’t in a Presidential year, and use that identity to cast one in a non-Presidential year*. Easy to get away with; heck, somebody apparently did.

Seriously: surely we can all agree that this case needs investigating, at the very least?

*And if she hadn’t been found, she might have voted this year, too.

  1. There will be a record of who was running her polling place, also a signed voting log. Start there.

    1. *IF* there were federal offices on the ballot she would have received, then .. is this a job for the locals?

  2. One minor problem, the person who cast the vote would have to have known she was dead or at least not voting that day.
    In other words for it to have been voter fraud the person would most likely have at least known she died, i.e., possible foul play may be involved in her demise. Voter fraud may be the least of his/her worries at the moment.

    1. It’s actually not a bad bet that a registered voter who didn’t bother to vote in the Presidential election wouldn’t do so in the midterm, either.

      1. This is why purging the voter rolls is important… and why the Dems are so eager to go to court to prevent it.
        The Chicago Way involves union thugs in a van, with a list of “people we know aren’t voting” (because they’re dead, out of town, imprisoned, etc. etc.) driving from polling place to polling place….

    2. Not necessarily–I remember in the 2004 election, a woman in Wisconsin writing that she went to check her registration a few weeks early and discovered someone had changed her address. They told her that if she had voted without knowing, she could’ve been arrested at the polling place.

  3. Yes it could have been as simple as she didn’t vote in the Presidential race so she probably won’t vote in this one, but my point here is they will be looking at those votes very closely and will want to question whoever cast them to see if they knew anything. Either way there will be charges.
    So if it was typical Chicago shenanigans someone bit off way more than he/she wanted to. Voter fraud may look like the least of their worries.

  4. Who voted her? Who knew she would not vote? And why isn’t that person being sought for charges of concealing a death?
