Democrats in Michigan fought to keep the names of 26,000 dead people on the state voter registration rolls, but a federal judge denied their demands.

On Thursday, the U.S. Western District Court of Michigan denied a plea filed by Michigan’s Democrat Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson to keep the tens of thousands of dead people on the voter rolls.

Last year, the Public Interest Legal Foundation filed a lawsuit against Benson accusing her of keeping nearly 26,000 dead people on the voter registrations. They insisted that the dead voters be removed to make the registration records more accurately reflect the voting population.

Benson tried to have the courts throw the suit out. But on Thursday, the federal judge refused to dismiss the suit.

Per Breitbart News:

“It is astonishing that Secretary Benson is so vigorously opposing effective list maintenance,” PILF President J. Christian Adams said in a statement.

“It’s remarkable that after sharing this data with the Secretary of State in 2020, dead registrants remained on the state’s voter rolls,” he continued. “This initial win is the first step to ensuring that deceased registrants are not receiving ballots and reducing the opportunity for fraud in Michigan’s elections.”

PILF’s lawsuit alleges that 25,975 dead registrants remain on Michigan’s voter rolls, including:

  • 23,663 registrants who have been dead for five years or more
  • 17,479 registrants who have been dead for at least a decade
  • 3,956 registrants who have been dead for at least 20 years

You do know why these Democrats want to keep the names of tens of thousands of dead people on the voter rolls, right?

That way they have thousands of names to cheat with and no live voter to contest it.
