I've said it before, I'll say it again. The biggest failings by Democrats in the past 4 years was not protecting the voting process.

It's all military, Trump voters.

I'd wager a group of Trumpublicans wanted to prove there could be potential tampering with the mail.

The Ann Coulter method: prove there's voter fraud by committing voter fraud.

"Let's blame the victims!"

Sorry, bot, but if "the Feds" are making a big deal about who was harvesting the ballots, it's a set-up.

Chill out. Administrative error on the part elections officials rather than malfeasance. Nevertheless, inexcusable because of similar errors in the past. www.justice.gov

It's Pennsylvania, a swing state with a close election. A state that Republicans desperately need to win. A state that's going to be challenged in the Supreme Court.

Of course, it's a set up. It's just not a very good one.

This happened in a Republican county that went for Trump by 20% in 2016.

The election official said the confusion probably arose because the absentee ballot application and ballot envelopes look very similar.

Which is another entirely plausible scenario.

AMATEURS!

A "pro" would have hidden hundreds of Trump votes in a closet. Then when Biden won Pennsylvania the Trump votes would be "discovered" thus giving Trump the excuse he needed to make his case for fraud in the Supreme Court and getting Biden's win overturned.

Heck, it could be that the ballots had some problem with them (marked wrong, not signed, etc...) and were discarded. We don't know, wait for the investigation.

None of us really know what happened here nor who did it but to pretend it was Democrats that did this, without proof, makes you a partisan hack and not a very smart one. IMHO it is interesting that these votes were discovered in the trash, I wonder why was anyone going through the trash unless they knew what they were likely to find? Because they new it was there? My first suspect would be that person and I'd want to know how they knew those ballots would be found there?

Fat Nixon will hold nothing back to keep from going to jail.

I have already seen Trumptards intimidating voters in FL.

I have faith in the process.

I also have faith there will be at least active shooter MAGAt before everything is said and done.

Wait, people are actually voting now, and the DOJ is talking about investigations again? Didn't we see this before with some guy named Comey?

Not fraud, incompetence.

#20 It could be malfeasance if the lack of training was a deliberate decision on the part of the administrators.

It's not theirs to protect.

Don't blame the Democrats for things Republican Governors and Republicans Legislatires are doing.

I'm sorry Snoofy, but you are way wrong. Nothing else matters. Those who would vote for ------- are going to vote for him, those who aren't, aren't. ------- cheated his way into the WH. Republicans have spent decades disenfranchising voters. Democrats should have done everything in their power to assure a secure election.

THAT is their failure-not blue collar whites, not suburban moms, not unions. Securing the vote, cause if a vote isnt counted, it don't count.

"I'm sorry Snoofy, but you are way"wrong.

How so?

Elections are run by the states.
Something like 30 states have GOP governors and GOP state legislatures.
Plus the GOP has the Federal Executive branch in a Census year.

What exactly can the Democrats do to stop GOP meddling in GOP state elections?

"Democrats should have done everything in their power to assure a secure election."

Democrats have no power, in most states.

This whole thing is being blown out of proportion.

A temp worker got overwhelmed and confused. The mistake was discovered and fixed. The temp worker was removed.

No votes were lost. Atlas shrugged but Doomsday was averted and the world has once again returned to it's normal axis.

End of story.
