Dead People Can and Do Vote

RECEIVED Tue., Oct. 17, 2006

Dear Editor,
    I love Eyebeam [Oct. 13] and I voted for Hank way back when, but Sam Hurt is wrong: nonexistent and dead persons can vote. Remember Tammany Hall, Daly's Chicago, and Duval County? (All Democrat operations.) They would have voted in Florida, but the Supreme Court got in the way. And Hank, of all people, should know that they can win elections, too. So, why isn't Hank running for governor?
