President Trump's voter fraud allegation is 'a lie,' says California's top elections officer

Source: L.A. Times

With President Donald Trump rehashing last year's accusation of widespread voter fraud in California and elsewhere, the state's top elections official is also restating his take: It's not true.

"When the president says millions of illegal ballots are cast, thatís simply not the case," said Secretary of State Alex Padilla in an interview on CNN Wednesday. "It's a lie."

As was the case when Trump made the accusation in November , there's no evidence of such a broad attempt to sway the outcome in California. The president lost the Golden State to Democrat Hillary Clinton by almost 4.3 million votes.

Trump's announcement on Wednesday of a "major investigation" into voter fraud reignited the issue, even though there was also Republican skepticism in the wake of the new round of accusations.

This has got to be the craziest story in a long time, and truly reveals for all
to see, that something is not right in the belfry.

He wins the election, is in office, and the popular vote count bothers him so
much that his is obsessed with voter margins in the states he didn't win.

You won. You move on. Nothing to gain here. Irrelevant. Yet he lacks the self-
control or the intelligence, or the judgment, or something, to simply drop it.

These prominent pundits, ok they're Democrats, dropping the mental illness
bombshell this week is telling. Prick this bubble as soon as possible.

2. Who cares if its a lie; there were states where the GOP couldn't block voters

I'm predicting the outcome of this "investigation" will be the need for a National ID and probably a handful of draconian federal election laws that in any other America would be unconstitutional.

"Your papers, please?"

5. Yes. I too think there's more to it than simply giving the count to Trump.

The GOP /Trump /Putin want control over the blue states.
They want to win 2018, 2020.

3. Dump utterly hates NY and CA.

NY was his home state, which he lost. He sees CA directly responsible for the 3M popular vote loss.

He's not gonna let it go.

This hatred will destroy him.

6. Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness

The Republicans really ought to get around to reading this book that's called The Bible some day. It could very well save them from the kozmically krappy karmic fate they are establishing for themselves:

his daughter Tiffany, his advisor Bannon and his treasury nominee Mnuchin.
