A collection of computer analysts and political science types are urging the Democrats to challenge the results of the recent American election because of what they say , ‘may’ be voter irregularities in three key swing states.
They claim that Clinton support was about seven percent lower than her average vote count in areas where electronic voting machines were used.
The assertion is that the electronic voting machines may have been hacked and the voting ‘rigged’, if I can borrow an often-used word from the election campaign.
The problem with the theory, of course, is that they have no proof to back up their claim.
And, even if the Democrats decided to pursue the matter, who would investigate…the FBI ?
I hope not; they’ve already shown by their actions where their allegiance lies.
Frankly, given the bizarre nature of this election, nothing would surprise me at this point.
But even though many Democrats think something stinks here, they’ll most likely do what Al Gore did in 2000 and grudgingly accept the election results.
The most important take away from this outlandish election is that, with so much at stake , only half of the eligible voters took the time to cast a ballot, and that’s a fact that will haunt the Democrats for the next four years.
