As if Trump couldn’t stoop any lower, he is now accusing Hillary of planning outright election Fraud, in a fraught attempt to divert attention away from the numerous sex scandals that threaten to put the nail in the coffin of his already failing campaign. This move smacks of desperation, as even respected senior GOP members such as Paul Ryan abandon his imploding campaign, and female voters switch to Hillary in droves, after learning about his deplorable treatment of womyn.
In recent weeks, Trump has urged his dwindling support base to ‘monitor’ the booths on election day for anything ‘suspicious’. Alluding to outright election fraud, Trump then follows up with “you know what I’m talking about”. These are serious accusations, and extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. So what is Trump’s evidence? Well it turns out, nothing other than conspiracy theories emanating from discredited sources like the right-wing political pundit ‘Roger Stone’ and radio talk show host ‘Alex Jones’. Roger Stone is so convinced that the ‘establishment’ will try to steal the election, that he has set up an organization called “Stop the Steal”, which collects donations from gullible and paranoid Trump supporters, in order to monitor the election process and ensure that Trump’s votes are counted.
The fact is, experts agree that election fraud is all but impossible with today’s electronic voting machines, and highly robust voting process. Electronic voting machines are designed with tight security, and an objective vote-counting algorithm that cannot be tampered with. Voting booths are manned by patriotic government employees, who will be watching the process like a hawk, and making sure that all votes are counted correctly. As an additional fairness measure, this year the UN will also be providing accredited independent monitors to oversee the election and prevent voter suppression.
Election fraud is generally more likely to be the subject of Hollywood Movies rather than actual elections. Accusing Democrats of election fraud has long been a tactic of failing Republicans, but as Hillary says, “when they go low, we go high”. As Trump continues to insult the integrity of millions of hardworking government employees and UN officials who will be handling our elections, Hillary will continue focusing on the issues that matter to the American people, such as Trump’s mistreatment of women and his various other bigoted views.
