Michigan's Department of State on Thursday issued a non-denial denial of the reports that dead people are listed as having voted on Michigan's voting status database.
Here's the statement they sent out:
Ballots of voters who have died are rejected in Michigan, even if the voter cast an absentee ballot and then died before Election Day. On rare occasions, a ballot received for a living voter may be recorded in a way that makes it appear as if the voter is dead. This can be because of voters with similar names, where the ballot is accidentally recorded as voted by John Smith Sr when it was actually voted by John Smith Jr; or because of inaccurately recorded birth dates in the qualified voter file; for example, someone born in 1990 accidentally recorded as born in 1890. In such scenarios, no one ineligible has actually voted, and there is no impact on the outcome of the election. Local clerks can correct the issue when it is brought to their attention.Note the non-denial that dead people are on the rolls and voted.
Instead, they just describe how the system is supposed to work, which everyone already knows.
They left it to the media to fill in the blanks for them.
For example, Snopes wrote an article titled, "RUMOR ALERT: William Bradley and ‘Dead’ Voters in Michigan" with the subheader, "More evidence is required before this claim can be rated in a traditional Snopes fact check, but official sources have refuted it."
Refute can mean "prove that (someone) is wrong" or "deny or contradict (a statement or accusation)," Snopes no doubt wants readers to believe they did the former, when at most one might say they did the latter.
Business Insider ran an article titled, "Michigan says a 'dead voter' conspiracy theory shared by Donald Trump Jr. is probably the result of a records error."
The article itself falsely claimed only one deceased person was listed as having voted, then cited ex-CIA Director and ex-Communist John Brennan's Brennan Center to pooh-pooh the notion that voter fraud exists (the Brennan Center simultaneously claims Russia has "interfered in our election," including through "voter suppression").
From Business Insider:
Michigan's Department of State denied a viral conspiracy theory alleging that a deceased person voted in the 2020 presidential election.The claim is that multiple dead voters were listed on Michigan's voting status database website as having voted.
One was listed as 118 years old, another was 119 years old and another was 120 years old.
To claim it was just one person is pure strawmanning and misinformation.
Jake Rollow, the director of communications for the Michigan Department of State, told Insider in an email that ballots of dead voters are rejected by the state, but that "on rare occasions, a ballot received for a living voter may be recorded in a way that makes it appear as if the voter is dead."If you can't trust the ex-Communist former Director of the CIA who authorized drone strikes on American citizens, who can you trust, folks?!
Lists of additional suspected dead voters are being run through their system and compiled as we speak.
That the Michigan officials are not denying it outright may be a sign that where there's smoke there's fire.
