Officials looking into claims of voter fraud in the 2020 US Election have made a startling find.
Some Republicans have been claiming there was widespread cases of dead people's names being included in the registry of people who voted on or before November 3 for the Democrats. No cases have actually been confirmed...until now, and it's fairly ironic.
The only confirmed instance where someone is accused of using a dead person's identity to fraudulently add to a candidate's vote tally was a Republican.
Bruce Bartman has been charged with unlawful voting and perjury over allegations that he pretended to be his dead mother to vote for Donald Trump in the state of Pennsylvania. The 70-year-old also been accused of registering his dead mother-in-law to do the same thing.
Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer confirmed Bartman has been taken into custody last week but has since been released on $US100,000 bail.
Stollsteimer said in a statement: "This is the only known case of a 'dead person' voting in our county, conspiracy theories notwithstanding."
"Further, the prompt prosecution of this case shows that law enforcement will continue to uphold our election laws whenever presented with actual evidence of fraud and that we will continue to investigate every allegation that that comes our way."
Prosecutors will allege Bartman registered the two dead women in August this year as Republicans. He allegedly used his mum's driver's licence and her social security number, however was flagged when sending in details of his mother-in-law.
