He fought in World War II. He died in 2014. And he just registered to vote.
Richard Allen Claybrook Sr., a World War II veteran, just recently registered to vote. The problem? Well… he died in 2014 at age 87.
If that’s not bad enough, local law enforcement and even the FBI are looking into 19 cases of people who have in fact passed away in Virginia as they were recently re-registered to vote in this critical swing state.
“His family members were very distraught,” said Rockingham County Commonwealth’s Attorney Marsha Garst, who has officially confirmed the FBI and police investigation though she did state that she could provide few details because the case is ongoing.
“He was a retired Fairfax County elementary school principal and had fought in World War II,” said his son, retired Harrisonburg General District Court Judge Richard Allen Claybrook Jr. “So our family is very disgusted that they would pick his name, because he was such a law-abiding citizen devoted to public service.”
According to The Washington Post:
Republicans in the state House of Delegates, who in recent years have supported tighter voter ID laws, held a conference call with reporters to call attention to the investigation.
“Oftentimes we hear our Democratic colleagues suggest that voter fraud doesn’t exist in Virginia, or it’s a myth,” House Speaker William J. Howell (R-Stafford) said. “This is proof that voter fraud not only exists but is ongoing and is a threat to the integrity of our elections.”
No charges have been filed.
“First of all, there was no voter fraud — they caught him,” House Minority Leader David J. Toscano (D-Charlottesville) said. “Nobody cast a vote. . . . There’s still no evidence of that going on in the state. But there is evidence every time you turn around that the Republicans are trying to make it more difficult for citizens to vote in elections.”
