2. I don't know- absent witnesses and proof- that actual election fraud was attempted and/or planned
though the Republicans were clearly doing whatever they could to change, stretch, and tamper with election laws in places like Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, etc. to make it more difficult for Democratic voters to show up to the polls and cast a vote. That was not ever in doubt given the battles over voter roll purges, voter ID laws, early voting but, like I said before, I'm not sure that we'll ever know for sure unless somebody comes forward and testifies that stuff was planned and/or actually occurred on Election Night that was supposed to swing the election to Romney. Given how the election shook out, it looks like either nothing was actually attempted or it simply wasn't successful for some reason.
