Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, August 17, 2019

The American people count on me, as the Chair of their Federal Election Commission, to protect the integrity of our elections. So I ask you, once again, to provide any evidence you may have to the American people and the appropriate law-enforcement authorities to substantiate your claims. The American people are ill-served when our leaders put forward unfounded allegations of voter fraud. To put in terms a former casino operator would understand: There comes a time when you need to lay your cards on the table or fold.

Out of a billion votes, there were 31 cases identified as possible voter fraud. Less than half of those proved prosecution-worthy.

The 'voter fraud' claims are nothing but a trumped up bunch of BS to account for voter suppression efforts by Republicans.

So the Russians didnt change the vote.

No hacking succeeded

The election had no fraud.

When the commission that Pres Trump appointed to find voter identity fraud could not find any and was dissolved, it was quite apparent that the claims were not based in any sort of reality.

@#2 .... The election had no fraud. ...

You are playing quite fast and loose with semantics, apparently to distort the statement of the problem.

But I suspect you know that. :)

Based on what we know I agree. What we also know is that they tried to hack into state systems.

Moscow Mitch won't approve funds to help states with election cybersecurity. Why do you think that is?

Trump and the right want us to somehow believe MILLIONS of people cast illegal ballots, which, to hear Trump explain it, is why Clinton got millions more votes than Trump. Trump has a 'size' problem.

Remember when he gave the speech at the CIA in the Hall of Honor and bragged about his crowd size? His inauguration where photos taken show his crowd was half the size or smaller than Obama's?

Trump's lies are laughable to everyone but the 1/3 of voters who comprise rabid 'base.'

I expect the chair's letter to be on the front page of every American paper tomorrow.
