Spoke Too Soon?

"After a Tulsa World investigation found that as many as 10 Oklahomans apparently had voted after their deaths in recent years, a state official said there are logical explanations for at least nine of the cast ballots," the World reports today.

If the 10th case, one involving a Lincoln County man in 2006, proves to be a clerical error rather than fraud, then the Oklahoma League of Women Voters will be off the hook and will not be under any obligation to endorse voter ID (as I earlier suggested).

Voter ID, of course, was good policy before any smoking gun and remains good policy now.
