CARLSON: Bogus conspiracy theories, completely unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud. They say it again and again, but what exactly are they talking about? They won’t tell you, so we’re going to tell you.
Right now, fewer than 15,000 votes separate Donald Trump from Joe Biden in the State of Georgia. It’s close enough that it is worth getting specific about what happened there. And Georgia’s Secretary of State has now confirmed there will be a hand recount of all votes cast in Georgia.
Among those votes, auditors will find a ballot cast by a woman called Deborah Jean Christiansen. It would be hard to find anyone who has got a bad word to say about Deborah Jean Christiansen. She was well-known in her community for years as a bird watcher, an avid gardener, a committed fan of the Georgia Bulldogs.
Those who knew her were sad when she died last May, and they might be surprised to learn that even after her death, Deborah Jean Christiansen still managed to register to vote and then cast a ballot presumably for Joe Biden.
In some ways, it’s an inspiring story, the triumph of voting over death.
And no one quite embodies that story like James Blaylock of Covington, Georgia. Mr. Blaylock was a mailman for 33 years until he passed away in 2006. Fourteen years later, according to state records, he was still mailing things.
James Blaylock cast a ballot in last week’s election. How did he do that? It might be worth asking “The New York Times.” Maybe James Blaylock was just one of those extraordinary mail carriers, neither rain nor snow nor gloom of night nor even death itself could keep him from the mail.
In his case, maybe voting from the grave wasn’t really fraud. It was just commitment. OK.
But what about Linda Kessler of Nicholson, Georgia. Linda Kessler died in 2003. Seventeen years later, she was still voting in presidential elections. Edward Swein out of Trenton, Georgia spent his life working construction and teaching school. In his spare time, he loved bluegrass music. According to those who knew him, he played multiple instruments and enjoyed jam sessions.
When he died five years ago at the age of 82, it seemed like he was gone from this world for good. But no. Last week, he voted for President.
And he wasn’t the only one. On your screen right now, you will see the names of other deceased voters. Every one of them played a role in last week’s presidential election.
As of tonight, there aren’t enough of them to alter the outcome. That could change as we learn more. But for the moment, the point is, they exist. They are dead, but they voted anyway. The question is, how did they do that? How exactly did they cast their ballots? And the short answer is by mail.
Dead people tend to vote more often when you make it easier for them to vote. They are like any other group. This year, we made it much easier for the dead to vote.
States sent ballots and registration forms to millions of people totally unsolicited. The pretext was COVID. We had to do this for public health reasons, remember? We had no choice. It was a public health emergency. The effect was to encourage fraud.
