They would probably say that even if they are the same person, that the person operating both accounts is not doing so abusively, so no check is warranted.
But, if they are socks, they have been used abusively, even within the last few days:Mantanmoreland votes "support" on MONGO2 RfASamiharris votes "support" on MONGO2 RfABlnguyen
seems to have taken it upon himself to do checkuser on people voting in the election, so probably he is the one to whom this matter should be referred.
Gary abused those two accounts for tag-teaming after being told to "stop it" with his other sockpuppets. I'm pretty sure the tip I got is reliable, as that person has been 99.994% ivory soap reliable in the past on such things, and is being coy with the information for now. Probably to see how this revelation seeps its way through the smoky ban room channels.
After Mantanmoreland got caught making consensus with himself as LastExit, he waited awhile before doing it again as Samiharris if this tip turns out true. Waiting for more from the tipster.
I was reluctant to peg sami as mantan, even though he did throw a fit as sami during a talk page discussion that was almost to the word the same as another emotional fit that mantan threw on the same subject. I just thought Gary was smart enough to get another actual real person to fake consensus with, but the man never ceases to amaze.
