Voter Fraud Investigation

October 16, 2002, 11:59 PM by Jolene Loetscher

Voter Fraud Investigation

Click here to watch this story(Windows Media) It's being called "Dead Man Voting". A South Dakota voter fraud investigation is turning up ballot applications for dead people, people not old enough to vote, and people who don't even exist. KELOLAND's Jolene Loetscher received a stack of papers today from a person who says supports John Thune in the Senate race against Tim Johnson. Inside there are documents from three counties. There are two absentee ballot requests from two counties for Denise Red Horse dated September 21st. She died September 9th. Jackson County shows three voter registrations from Julius Has No Horse within two weeks. And one, includes a different birthday.
Look at the two examples above. At first glance, the signatures on Rushael Maxon's absentee application do not look exactly like the registration card. There's a similar example from Kayce Rousseau in Dewey County. But in both of these cases, the Democratic Party says it found out about the discrepancies and notified authorities. There were some questions raised about Buffalo County. But when I called in the county auditor in Gann Valley, she told me after hearing about other questionable applications, she looked through, found a few cards that just to be sure, she gave to the Sheriff's office. She wasn't aware of any special investigation there.
