Trump’s rigged election
Donald Trump has special information that millions of illegal votes were cast even though none of his special poll-watchers seem to have reported detecting such widespread fraud. He thinks he’d have won the popular vote (which he lost, according to the official records) if it weren’t for these illegal votes, so this is a grave matter. Did he get the information from the same secret, confidential sources that allow him to know “more than the generals” about ISIS, and that global climate change is a “hoax” cooked up by the Chinese, etc.? One troubling question: Given that Americans vote by secret ballot, how does he know that the millions of illegal votes were all cast against him? How do we know that the illegal votes weren’t for him? Have his sources broken the secrecy of the ballot?
That would clearly cast more than a shadow of doubt over the election results. The credibility of our entire free electoral process, the foundation of our democracy, is at stake when the president-elect attacks it. He must provide more information on how he knows that the election was rigged and what we can do to prevent such things from happening again. No more free passes for our future president — his words matter, and we have to take them seriously.
