Keep reading on Twitter, Facebook and blogs about the unsubstantiated voting fraud claims made by Trump at 2:00 AM on the day after the election and again on Friday. It's obvious the first Amendment gives people the right to say almost any silly thing they want, but in legal decisions we need proof and "preponderance of evidence" is the standard. I'm pretty sure the majority of Americans prefer their President stayed with fact and say nothing silly. So where is this proof of fraud we keep hearing about that several Federal Agencies say is non-existent including Trump's own homeland security agency that said this election was "the most secure in American history"?
Trump's mouthpiece on Fox News Tucker Carlson had to apologize to two Georgia voters after saying "a man named James Blalock and a woman named Linda Kesler had voted in Georgia last week, despite having died years earlier, promising his viewers: “We can prove it." Mrs. James Blalock did in fact vote but no record of her husband voting and Linda Kesler who is alive and well voted too. Apparently Tucker's fact checkers missed where the Jackson County Board of Elections said she did not cast a ballot in the 2020 election. "Linda Kesler of Nicholson was marked deceased in 2003 and did not vote." Another Lynda Kesler, who has a different address, birthday, and zip who is entitled to vote—did vote," the board of elections explained. I really feel sorry for all the people repeating the Tucker Carlsons type charges of voter fraud as fact. Besides those two votes could not change the outcome; why did the moron even mention them?
I see blogs on LP that repeat blatant lies, but if those people are so sure they have the facts correct, why do they lock their statements and/or block people that might correct them? Twitter and Facebook are different but misinformation isn't. My guess they are not really passionate or brainwashed, but just want wear a MAGA hat and be part of something; just like followers with no clue what they are following.
