DENVER (AP) -- Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler is investigating 85 people who may have been illegally registered to vote.

A spokesman for Gessler says jail records are being checked for people being detained as illegal immigrants to see if they match names in the state's voter database.

According to the Denver Post, Gessler is asking the federal Department of Homeland Security to verify the status of the detainees before removing them from the voter rolls.

    If they are illegally registered, prosecute them!! (The standard Democrat lie is that "there are no real cases of voter fraud". Make it harder for the Democrats to peddle that lie.)

      Well, let's see what the results are before you start calling people liars.

        You don't know what I've "seen" or "haven't seen". Voter fraud is alive and well. It's a bit harder in a small place like Mesa County and a lot easier in Denver, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Baltimore and other big urban areas. I doubt if much monkey business will be found in Mesa County, but I don't doubt that it will be found in Denver... That is, if anyone actually looks for it.
