    Here's a Google search on the Trump supporter committing voter fraud. Take your pick of which source you want to believe, or not:


    I see you offer no evidence that there was real voter fraud in the places you site as being "documented". But here's a Fact Check of the supposed case in Philly that says the claim was false.

    I don;t know Mr. Gravel. So far, the only reported voter fraud has been committed by Trumpians. No surprise there. And no, the Esquire is not a credible source for information.

    Your are quoting Iowa NPR? Okay, you hold on to that belief they are "objective." The cases in Chicago and Philly have been documented. Perhaps if you would read more than liberal sources such as NPR and WRAL you would know about Chicago and Philadelphia.

    Actors! Is there anything they don't know? (/ob Homer). Oh, and shouldn't she be boycotting this state in support of the LGBT community over HB2? I thought Hollywood was all in against it.

    There actually has been one documented instance of voter fraud in this election, by a Trump supporter.

    Yes, Lena let's do CHECK voter registration status. As we speak the dead are voting Democrat in Chicago and Philadelphia. BTW, please, please keep your clothes on, this is not a Blue State. Further, you cannot go to the men's restroom either.
