Voting From the Grave: Dead people cast ballots in Philly
Pezzano passed in 2006. But state voting records show the South Philadelphia native still listed as an “Active Voter” who cast ballots in 2008, 2012, 2014, and the 2016 primary election.
Wendy Saltzman asked Marchiano if there was any way Pezzano could have voted in 2016.
“Not if she was dead,” Marchiano replied. “So no.”
Our investigation also found Joseph B. Haggarty resting peacefully in a Bucks County cemetery. His grave marker confirmed he died in 2010, but records show he voted five years after his death.
“Any chance he voted in 2015?” Wendy Saltzman asked a neighbor.
“I’m sure he didn’t, personally. God rest his soul, he’s long gone,” he replied.
Action News also found Paul Bunch, who died in 2006, also cast a vote in this year’s primary which was nearly ten years after death records show he died. – READ MORE
