While one candidate is “on a presidential death march we’ve never seen before” — grotesquely coarsening and cheapening the national discussion, sowing dissatisfaction, division, and distrust (click that link if you have time) . . .

Trump’s fraud claims are ridiculous. (Washington Post)
You can read Republican election lawyer Chris Ashby’s thorough explanation of how difficult it would be to rig an election. . . . Or you can look at studies tracking voter fraud, like the now-famous one in which a professor at Loyola Law School traced years’ worth […]
