Snopes reports HOAX: report of vote switches from Sanders to Clinton is FALSE.

http://www.snopes.com/votes-switched-sanders-clinton/

A Huffington Post impostor site falsely reported that New York primary voters witnessed their votes changing from Bernie Sanders to Hillary Clinton.

SNIP

Additionally, a tiny gray hyperlink titled "Disclaimer" at the very bottom of article led to a page that acknowledged the site's counterfeit nature and identified the site's content as "fiction":

This site is in no way affiliated with The Huffington Post. This is a news and political satire web publication, which may or may not use real names, often in semi-real or mostly fictitious ways. All news articles contained within this site are fiction, and presumably fake news. Any resemblance to the truth is purely coincidental. Advice given is NOT to be construed as professional.

**Today’s question…can liberals be trolled as easily as Republicans? We shall see.

What better way to take the heat of oneself than to make it appear to be the work of a hoaxster?
