Senator Todd Farley, D, said, "Republicans have griped for years that several dead people were voting. They claim there were people that had voted that had been dead for years. Well, what do they expect when they deny a group of people there rights. Zombies may be dead but they have a voice, too. Many were born and died in West Virginia. They worked jobs and paid taxes. Why wouldn't they have a say so in what happens in their own backyards. I have never ever before seen a group of persons flat out denied the rights that all Americans are given. It is pure discrimination. Zombies are disenfranchised and not only do we need to give them the right to vote, we own them an apology. In most cases, Zombies can not help that they are dead."
Senator Ike Mays, R, said, "This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. These Democrats will never admit when they are caught. The dead have been voting in Logan, Mingo, and Lincoln counties for years. Heck, in some of these counties, we have even been letting them collect social security and food stamps, now they want to legally vote. This is an outrage!"
Democrat leaders want the issue to be brought up in the next legislative session. They contend that Zombies have been wronged for years and that West Virginia will be lucky if the Zombies do not sue. Scott Dermott, a Democratic senator from Madison and the leader of NAADP (The National Association for the Advancement of Dead People said, "Zombies never asked to be dead. They died through no fault of their own. Now, they are deprived of the rights they were given at age 18. Rights guaranteed by the constitution. I have never seen such blatant discrimination."
The Republicans contend this is another stunt by Democrats to cover their behinds for years of voting fraud. Steve Russo, R< said, "Why can't they just admitted they cheated instead of creating such an elaborate ruse."
