7. I missed it... where is TIA's explanation?
The problem with your CD 13 example is that, in fact, those statistical anomalies are fairly simple to detect. It's true that we don't know whether the CD 13 results were hacked or otherwise went awry, but AFAIK everyone who has looked at the data agrees that they went awry.

So when you say, "Unfortunately, there is insufficient precinct level poll or voting information to have statistical confidence of a hack," you seem to be missing the point of your own example. The reality is that if a minority of the voting machines are hacked or fail for any reason, the results on those machines tend to look different -- and we often do have access to those results, at least at the precinct level.

What's interesting, and puzzling, is that for all of TIA's vaunted concern about evidence of election fraud, I don't think I have ever seen him analyze precinct-level results.
