The 2016 election was hopelessly compromised, but the 2020 election was the best ever.
Reality Winner, the former NSA intelligence contractor who leaked evidence of Russian interference in a US Presidential election to the press, has been released from prison. Her attorney Alison Allen announced Winner, 29, had been let out on Monday early due to "exemplary" behavior while inside. In 2018, Winner pleaded guilty …
No one was suggesting the 2016 election results were compromised. Any attempts at "interference" were about making people decide on their own not to come out and vote, not to change votes. There were no allegations that a single vote was changed, but whataboutism requires rewriting history to try to normalize all the crazy we see from the republicans today.
The 2020 election was totally different, you have a delusional president who was so mentally screwed up by his father that he is unable to admit that he can lose at anything, so he lives in a fantasy world where before the 2016 and 2020 elections he openly admitted that he would claim fraud if he lost. Since Fox News was losing viewership to extremist networks like Newsmax and OANN over their early (but proven to be correct!) call of Arizona they were forced to go along with the bullshit.
There have been multiple recounts, audits, etc. and no fraud has been found. There's a totally partisan "recount" being conducted in Arizona that idiots are on the right are excited about, but the results should be given no more credence than people on the right would give a George Soros and AOC sponsored partisan recount in Texas conducted without any Texas officials or Texas laws being followed for the handling of the ballots. Trump will not be "reinstated" in August. Please rejoin the world of facts and leave Trump's mental illness inspired bullshit behind.
No one is arguing that it can't be improved, but the bills republicans have been proposing have nothing to do with improving elections. Reducing the number of days early voting is available doesn't reduce fraud. Reducing the hours polls are open doesn't reduce fraud. Preventing people from handing out water to people waiting in line for hours doesn't reduce fraud.
Some of the changes INCREASE the chance for fraud. Some states seek to allow their legislature to override the will of the voters "if they think they there was fraud". They don't have to prove any fraud in a court of law, the legislature can decide on their own that because their guy lost fraud must have occurred. Hopefully democrats will be able to pass a national law preventing that, and/or courts will find it unconstitutional. Otherwise once you get a republican legislature in a state it will always vote republican since they can just override the votes by claiming fraud, without any requirement to prove that fraud occurred.
All the counties republicans claim there was fraud have a large minority population (most are majority minority) It is a pretty transparently racist thing - they don't like that blacks don't vote for them, so they seek to nullify their votes.
