Despite the overwhelming lack of evidence, we continue to hear candidates warn of election fraud. We heard it in the final days of the recent campaigns, from the highest office in the land, down to state politics. Governor Scott Walker, defeated for the first time in his political career, apparently isn’t going down without a fight, suggesting some ballots were damaged and had to be recreated. President Donald Trump warned of possible election fraud in the waning days of the campaign. In Georgia, the Secretary of State, without any evidence, warned of possible election fraud in his race to become Governor, even though the Secretary of State is the one in charge of ensuring the integrity of elections. Perhaps they have forgotten that the notion of widespread election fraud is a myth. Even after winning the presidency, Trump created the Commission on Election Integrity, desperate for proof that the results of the election were somehow fraudulent. The commission was formed, meetings held, and nothing was found. The commission found zero evidence of voter fraud in the 2016 election. And there is no reason to suspect there was any widespread voter fraud in this election. This phantom theory needs to be put to rest. Candidates for political office in the future should stop spreading fear, and drop the words election fraud from their campaign speeches. It seems the only real fraud being committed is the continuing allegation that there is voter fraud.
