Man Attempted to Use Dead Man’s Name to Vote in Manchester


A man tried to dupe pollsters in Manchester, New Hampshire, by casting a vote Tuesday using the name of a dead man, CNN reports. The stunt, which has been used by people attempting to collect deceased persons’ Social Security benefits, was quickly foiled by a supervisor who became alarmed because she knew the name of the man who had died. Before running off, the guy told the supervisor that he was from Texas. Possibly a tough break for Rick Perry, if it wasn’t Perry himself.
