BRENDAN KEEFE (CHIEF INVESTIGATOR): Mr. James Blalock of Covington, Georgia, a World War II veteran, voted in the election, the president's campaign tweeted. The only problem? He passed away 14 years ago, sadly Mr. Blalock is a victim of voter fraud. 

That claim was amplified on national television.


TUCKER CARLSON: And no one quite embodies that story like James Blalock of Covington, Georgia. Mr. Blalock was a mailman for 33 years until he passed away in 2006. Fourteen years later, according to state records he was still mailing things. James Blalock cast a ballot in last week's election. 


KEEFE: False. James Blalock did not vote in last week's election. Mrs. James Blalock voted in last week's election.
