President Trump continues to receive scorn over his assertion last year that vote fraud accounted for Hillary Clinton's raw vote majority. Democrats and their shills are unanimous in denouncing the "false claims." (The Amazon Washington Post recently called it a "zombie claim.") When the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity was announced, it was denounced as a waste, an attempt to intimidate minorities, and a scheme to violate privacy, which has caused states to refuse to release public data requested by the commission. Its investigator, J. Christian Adams, is being vilified. Even Republicans expressed reluctance to Politico over the investigation.Democratic claims that anti-fraud measures will affect minority voters are extremely exaggerated, and can be easily overcome with methods that Republicans would agree to.
Senator Chuck Schumer bizarrely linked vote fraud to Charlottesville.
In the wake of the confrontation in Charlottesville, Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) called for President Trump to disband the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity on Aug. 24. In a Medium post, Schumer said the actions of the commission were "wolves in sheep's clothing" and a "ruse" designed to "revive the old playbook and disenfranchise minority voters."They really, really don't want anyone looking closely at vote fraud. They claim there is none of any significance.
There's only one reason Democrats don't want election fraud examined. They're up to their necks in it. The electoral college has had the effect of ameliorating the effect of fraud in the Democrat dominated urban centers, and spreading the weight of the electorate out into the much more closely balanced rural and suburban regions, where scrutiny from both sides matters more.
Trump voters knew in their hearts that the system was rigged, and yet they persisted.
