The legislature of the great state of South Carolina, already pissed off because the Fed struck down their Voter ID law, would now have you believe that hordes of zombies somehow climb out of cemeteries all across the great state of South Carolina on election day to vote. For Democrats, of course.
S.C. GOP state representative Alan Clemmons, who led the hearing, said (and with a straight face, we might add) “We must have certainty in South Carolina that zombies aren’t voting.” OK, so he didn’t actually say the “for Democrats” part. But we know he was thinking it.
Here’s what all this “much ado about nothing” is about. On 1/11/11, S.C. DMV Director Kevin Shwedo testified that an estimated 950 corpses busted out of their caskets, dug out from 6 foot under ,found their way down to the nearest ballot box and voted. Yes, he really did. Interestingly enough, Director Shwedo wasn’t actually registered to vote in South Carolina at the time of his testimony. But we digress.
Anyways, this concept of South Carolina being the only state in the Union that has a ”Night of the Living Dead” thing going on every election cycle was based on data collected from the S.C. Election Commission, the S.C Department of Vital Statistics and also the Social Security Administration. 10 days later, S.C. AG Alan Wilson, on Fox News, proclaimed it a fact that dead people are voting in South Carolina. Hence, the need for this voter ID law they keep squawking about. Because some 900+ zombies reanimate themselves on election day and make their way to a ballot box. Never mind the fact that all this kicking zombies out of the loop stuff has the potential to disenfranchise 178,000 legitimate LIVING voters who really don’t have and are not able to get, photo ID.
