Newt Gingrich’s convincing victory in South Carolina may now be marred by allegations of voter fraud.

South Carolina attorney general Alan Wilson notified the U.S. Dept. of Justice Sunday evening that 953 ballots were cast by “people listed as dead,” according to the Associated Press.

According to the AP, 71 percent of the ballots used names of South Carolinians who died anywhere between two months and 76 months prior to Saturday’s primary.

Wilson has recommended South Carolina’s State Law Enforcement Division to investigate the allegations.
