Statement by ALG President Bill Wilson on Refusal of Massachusetts Sec. of State William Galvin to Respond to Dead Voters on Rolls

January 19th, Fairfax, VA--Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today issued the following statement responding to Sec. of State William Galvin's statement on the possible of dead voter registrations being used to initiate election fraud:

"Massachusetts Secretary of State William Galvin has chosen to ridicule those concerned about the names of 113,000 dead people appearing on the state's voter rolls. With so much at stake in his state and throughout the nation in today's election, one would expect him to be more serious and less cynical. After all, it's his job.

"The fact is, if there is anyone who deserves cynicism, it is Mr. Galvin, himself. He is the person who in 2008 was found by the United States Department of Justice to have violated the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Acting of 2002. According to the Justice Department, he violated the law by failing to report and collect the number sent and the number returned of absentee ballots from overseas Military personnel registered to vote in Massachusetts.[2] 

"In short, Mr. Galvin's track record for enforcing election laws is far from sterling. He has no room to ridicule those who ask him simply to do his job – for a change.
