There is a research that shows that there have been very many cases involving mistaken identities of various people. It is a problem that has been more promoted by the advances in technology and the much we depend on it. The matters did not start with the introduction of Internet, but even before this, there were other cases of mistaken identities. We will discuss some of the wrong identities cases in this useful post so that you can read how they have affected different people. The cases of pooling in politics will be the first discussion in this useful post. A case in point involves Robert P. Casey A Pennsylvania governer.
He was the favorite for many people as a politician in the democratic party for the treasurer position. Coincidentally, the governor did not run for the treasurer position where another individual with a similar name run and was elected to the position having spent much less in the campaign. His name was Robert E. Casey thus the mistake of him being deemed to be the favorite.
The governor mistaken identity cases did not end there as when he decided to run for lieutenant governor and a man with a similar name also run he lost to the man die to the confusion. This cost the real Casey so much but he was able to run for the seat of governor again and won using the real Robert Casey committee and won. There is also a case of a tragic twist in this useful post. There was a tractor that hit a van that was ferrying Taylor University students.
Among the students we had Whitney Cerak a fresher and Laura Van Ryn who was a senior. Here the mix up came where Ryn died, and Whitney had severe injuries, but Whitney parents were informed that their daughter had died and Ryn parents were notified that their daughter is in hospital. Ryn parents continued to visit their daughter in the hospital thinking it was their daughter until a time when they noted some differences in the face and Whitney parents buried the dead one. They then decided to ask her name, and the girl was Whitney and not their daughter.
A third case in this useful post is known as the walking dead mix up that a man by the name Jeremy Lee Bass. Bass was called to be informed that his some had died but knowing that he did not have a son, he knew it was a mix up. The hospital had confused him with Jeremy Charles Bass. The hospital had mistaken the man before and named gum dead and billed his wife for the death. Mistaken identity cases hurts and inflicts pain and other problems to those involved as see in this useful post.
