Michigan’s Democrat Party chairwoman says to claim that the city of Detroit registers dead people to vote is a “direct attack on people of color.”
In response, Michigan Democrat Party Executive Director Christy Jenson said the lawsuit’s allegations that dead people are registered to vote in Detroit are racist and that there is no evidence of voter fraud:
PILF researchers discovered that a number of registered voters in Detroit had either “impossibly old” or “disqualifying young” date of births after analyzing voter data from the state of Michigan.
One case, for example, revealed that a registered Detroit voter listed their birth date as “1823,” which would make them 196 years old.
In addition to dead voters remaining on the voter rolls, PILF researchers allege that Detroit’s voter registration rate as of 2016 for the citizen voting-age population stands at 106 percent — indicating there more voters on the rolls than those who even live in the city.
