“I have seen the most fantastical things on social media, making completely ridiculous allegations that have no basis in fact at all and seen them spread,” Schmidt, a Republican co-chair of the three-member panel in charge of the city’s elections, told CNN in an interview.

He cited a report about “a long list of people that they said were dead voters who voted in Philadelphia. So, when we took a break between everything else that we’re doing, we looked it up, each one of them to see what their vote history was. Not a single one of them voted in Philadelphia after they died,” Schmidt said.
