We’re all for election integrity, aren’t we? Who could be against it, other than people who cheat? From Vasko Kohlmayer at lewrockwell.com:
By 10 PM eastern time on election day it was apparent that Donald Trump was headed for a comfortable victory in the Electoral College. He had won Florida, Ohio and Texas, and he was posting solid leads in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan and North Carolina. The only question seemed to be whether this time he would gain more electoral votes than in 2016.
But then strange things began to happen. One by one, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, North Carolina and Arizona suspended their counting process for the night. This was highly unusual. Never before in modern memory had a battleground state ceased counting before the winner of a presidential contest was announced. For five states to do it at about the same time was completely unprecedented.
When the first reports came in the following morning, Trump’s leads had largely evaporated. And as the counting stretched into the days ahead, he was gradually overtaken in all the key states in which he held solid leads on election night.
The writer Boyd Cathey described what happened:
“The large pro-Trump margins that seemed to prevail late election night have now disappeared as mail- in votes, many of doubtful legality, have begun to trickle in. Large Democratically-controlled cities like Philadelphia, Detroit, and Atlanta have miraculously produced tranches of almost completely Biden votes—legal Republican poll watchers have been excluded from observing the vote count—mail-in votes with unverified signatures of doubtful provenance have been counted. In short the safeguards that would guarantee a fair election have been egregiously ignored and violated.”
