'Facts matter': FEC chairwoman challenges Trump's voter fraud claims

Source: Politico

Ellen Weintraub, the chairwoman of the Federal Election Commission, on Monday rebuked President Donald Trump’s repeated allegations of widespread voter fraud in the 2016 election as “damaging to our democracy” and wholly unsubstantiated.

“There is no evidence of rampant voter fraud in 2016 or really in any previous election,” Weintraub, a Democrat, told CNN.

“People have studied this. Academics have studied this. Lawyers have studied this. The government has studied this. Democrats have studied this. Republicans have studied this,” she continued. “And no one can find any evidence of rampant voter fraud either historically or particularly in the 2016 elections.”

The White House did not immediately return an email seeking a response to Weintraub's remarks.

2. Hey traitor trump.......................did you by some strange chance see

how your right wing supreme court just ratfucked the country when it came to gerrymandering and voting right's, they basically just shit on the voting right's act and representational districts without having some fucking ratfucking pen to draw some line to keep power, because they see the writing on the wall, and your court is nothing more than a bunch of Federalist Society assholes on the right wing bench, that hate the Constitution and are basically emboldening the racism at all levels ..................SO FUCK YOU................. ,

Or how about what happened in Georgia, when you had a "guy" ratfucking the voters and just throwing over 50,000 people off the voting roles, because the asshole had the key to voting roles and he was like the fox in the chicken house......................so again FUCK YOU............................ or my all time favorite ratfucking, North Dakota, yes, North Dakota, when the racist assholes in the state of power, said that the Natives had to have an address on the "reservation" to vote, they basically tried to throw thousands of human beings off the roles, never mind that the federal government just places Native people on reservation like a interment camp throughout the history of the country, since they took over the land by fiat, since the land was illegally taken in general, they, then tell the Natives, you, Natives can go fuck yourself, because we just can, and have the power, my attitude is fuck that .................SO AGAIN FUCK YOU...............................the list goes on and on.

But in your narcissistic malignant fucked up head of treason..............................you think everything you do is the best and you should be #1, well your corrupt failure, how in the fuck do you lose money at a casinos, I know you stiff people out of contracts or you create a fraudulent university, or you defraud the state out 400 million in taxes, and everyone else has to take up the slack on a deadbeat slacker........................

Well, guess what asshole, you lost by over 3 million votes, LET ME REPEAT THIS YOU FUCKING LOST THE POPULAR VOTE by 3 Million, here I will write it out, THREE MILLION VOTES, YOUR A FUCKING LOSER, that is a fact........................, you just can't get over it, this says everything about your character and principles, and I have a feeling that you "might" carry 197 electoral votes, but that's pushing it ..........................the only reason why your in the white house is because of some racist thingy called the electoral college, that's it, nothing else........... and I will make a prediction that you are going to lose by a lot more votes this election.....................because you will not concede the presidential race coming up.................you just will not, and your trying your damnedest to set the voting thingy up as such................. and that your party will lose control of the congress with a fucking defeat, and then there will be issues, very serious issues, what are you and that other traitor Moscow Mitch going to do.....................................

3. Why is he complaining?

He got the office he wanted, didn't he? Is losing the popular vote that big a deal for him?

4. Just voter fraud claims?

He's a con man and a liar, and a total fraud, just like Mitt Romney said he was, and a puppet of Putin just like Hillary said he was. Now he wants people to believe we're not in already or heading into a recession, which is another sign of his policy failures, which for putin ? Probably. Just like his destruction of the rule of law, undermining all investigations against him and his criminal family and Cabinet. He's a complete and total fraud, and a career criminal who'll soon be exposed for it all.
