The Philadelphia Inquirer interviewed over 1500 people in whose names absentee ballots were cast in a critical 1993 Senate race; the paper found that over one-third of the absentee votes were fraudulent. Among other things, the paper found dead voters, non-existent voters, phony voters, registered voters who did not vote, forged signatures and people who voted twice. Sufficient fraud was uncovered on the part of the winning candidate and his campaign to change the outcome of the election. As a result, a federal judge removed the Democratic candidate, William Stinson from office, sweeping changes were made in the Election Code and the city's management of elections, 1994.
