Texas Watchdog Sees Dead People ... Voting in Dallas County
A story in two parts today: "Dead voters cast ballots in Dallas County," in which Melvin Porter dies in January 2007, only to vote in the March 4, 2008, Democratic primary. And this follow: "Polling place books may hold clues in mystery of Dallas County’s dead voters," in which Danny Clayton, Dallas County's supervisor of voter registration, vows his full cooperation. Clayton, who offers an explanation in the first story -- clerical errors, at least in a handful of instances -- tells the online publication that after Tuesday, "he would gather the polling place books that correspond with the elections where dead people’s names were used to vote," then share the info. --Robert Wilonsky
