So why is the SS data base not correct? The problem is not the state's effort to purge dead people from the voter roles but the bad data from the Federal government. If the living are listed as dead then how many dead are listed as living and collecting SS?

Wouldn't that defeat the purpose? We haven't seen the data. Duplicate or similar names have been a problem in the past. I know exactly what you are getting at, that somehow Mexicans are at fault, but if a person is reported dead, their checks cease. Remember, the story talks about the elderly. Don't you think they would notice. No, Texas is using the data to expell the maximum number of voters, by ward, I expect, since this is Texas.

Do a little checking and find out how Lyndon Johnson managed to win his first try for political office in Texas. Very interesting reading.
