So, you want to rig an election ...


heads can blithely spout off about “rigged” elections and “widespread voter fraud,” when anyone with an ounce of common sense would realize that it makes no sense at all. Notice they never explain exactly how an election was rigged or who perpetrate­d the fraud. Re “Registrars hit with spy-like scrutiny by vote watchers,” Sept. 11 It is absolutely amazing how the right-wing talking

If anybody took the time to think about it, they would understand that rigging an election requires many thousands of people acting in concert and total secrecy to carry out what the right refers to as “massive” fraud. Months of careful planning and the cooperatio­n of election officials and countless workers would also be needed.

It is impossible to imagine keeping a secret like that for more than five seconds in this era of the 24/7 news cycle. Unfortunat­ely, the people who blindly accept this conspiracy theorizing lack the ability to reason when it comes to politics. Robert G. Brewer
