Bronx Election Fraud: Dead Man on Ballot

The Bronx Conservative Party reportedly put a dead man on its general election ballot for State Senate, in an apparent new low in either absolute incompetence, or corruption warranting criminal investigation.

(It bears mentioning that New York State Conservative Party leader Michael Long reportedly referred the episode to the Manhattan District Attorney's Office.)

Some urban areas are prone to jokes about corruption in their political processes.  Dead people usually limit their post-mortem political participation to mere voting or signing of petitions.  The Bronx Conservative Party lowered the bar a notch, running for public office a candidate who was neither willing to run, nor breathing.  

In absolute seriousness, this episode reveals that, at a minimum, political parties have been able to run candidates for office without the named candidate consenting to so run.
