  1. I’m afraid that this is just the tip of the iceberg. Maybe I’m getting infected with the conspiracy virus but I can see a scenario where Trump and his buddies keep shouting about how bad mail-in ballots are in an effort to be sure we don’t pay enough attention to the manipulating of the tabulating and counting process. If you wanted to “fix” an election the low hanging fruit is in the processing of the votes! Let’s not get distracted.
