Social security numbers of the deceased people are a public record. Any citizen of this country can go to the Social security web site and get this info. It is an important record for a number of reasons:
a. it helps to prevent identity theft
b. it helps to prevent voter fraud, as the ss numbers of the dead had to be purged from the databases. For example HAVA has demanded that the state of NJ not hold any National elections until they purge from their databases the numbers of the deceased
c. those numbers can be used in connection with other names and addresses in connection with campaign contributions fraud.
All of this needs to be investigated and reported to the authorities. I have written to Bob Stevens, that does technical support of this blog to remove anonymous option from this blog. If people have something to say, they should use their name.Letter from a reader is below.
