Yet Another Claim Of Dead People Voting For Biden Gets Debunked

Donald Trump has pushed some fairly incredible stories of voter fraud in the 2020 elections. Unfortunately for him, none of them turn out to be true. Those out of state voters who illegally cast ballots? Turns out they’re military families voting from overseas. The investigation into the 2020 elections by the Department of Homeland Security that Trump promised would reveal fraud? It didn’t, and Trump fired the official in charge of that investigation for saying there was no fraud. That proof of voter fraud found by Trump and Fox News Tucker Carlson when a dead woman named Deborah Jean Christiansen cast a ballot months after she had died? She answered the door when CNN came to investigate.

It turns out that Deborah Jean Christiansen, a Georgia voter who registered in October 2020 and cast her vote legally later that month, has the same name as another woman, who was born in the same month and year but on another day, who died in May 2019. Trump’s supporters apparently never considered the fact that two people may have the same name, but even more disturbing, Tucker Carlson pushed the theory without ever actually investigating its veracity.

CNN reports that:

‘The campaign and Carlson said this vote was a fraud because Deborah Jean Christiansen died last year. In fact, the vote was legally cast by a living woman who also happens to be named Deborah Jean Christiansen, born in the same year and month but on a different day.

‘Christiansen answered the door when CNN showed up on Tuesday evening.’

Christiansen called the allegation “ridiculous,” which is the understatement of the year considering the allegation that she died was being refuted by a living woman. She told CNN that she voted for Trump in 2016 but has since come to regret her decision. She likely regrets it even more now that the president of the United States made a public spectacle of her name. Christiansen said Trump’s accusations were more about his refusal to admit he’s lost than any real concern about voter fraud.

‘The guy lost the election. He should be worried more about taking care of people, with this Covid-19 going on. He’s got a pandemic. Come on. Biden won. Let’s move on. Let’s help him transition.’

The failure to actually investigate this story by Fox News or Tucker Carlson, who had to apologize for another claim of a dead person voting in the 2020 elections earlier this month, has upended Christiansen’s life. But it wasn’t even necessary to go and find her to determine that she’s very much a living woman who voted for Biden in 2020.

‘You do not need to knock on the living Christiansen’s door in Cobb County, near Atlanta, to figure out that the fraud claim is false. Cobb County elections director Janine Eveler told CNN that while the two Deborah Jean Christiansens were both born in 1954, they have different birthdays and different Social Security numbers. Also, she said, the deceased woman “is marked as deceased” in the state’s system.

‘Eveler said Cobb County records confirm the living Deborah Jean Christiansen registered to vote on October 5 — the date the Trump campaign wrongly claimed someone registered in the name of the deceased woman — and voted in person on October 28, when she would have had her photo identification checked.’
