Skip to comments.AP Explains: Election’s validity intact despite Trump claims
Posted on 11/10/2020 1:00:55 PM PST by Oldeconomybuyer
The U.S. presidential election was not tainted by widespread voter fraud or irregularities in how ballots were counted, despite a huge effort by President Donald Trump to prove otherwise.
In refusing to concede the election, Trump claims that he would have won were it not for illegal votes counted in several states that he lost or where he is currently trailing. But Trump and his allies havent offered any proof and their legal challenges have largely been rejected by the courts.
WHAT IS TRUMP CHALLENGING?
The Trump campaign has filed more than a dozen lawsuits in at least five states.
Trump has won one victory so far: A state court ruled his campaign observers had to be allowed closer to the actual vote counting. That ruling had no impact on the outcome of the race.
On Monday, his campaign sued to force Pennsylvania not to certify the results of the election altogether. The 85-page lawsuit itself contained no evidence of voter fraud, other than a smattering of allegations such as an election worker in Chester County altering over-voted ballots by changing votes that had been marked for Trump to another candidate.
WHAT ARE TRUMPS ALLIES SAYING?
Trumps lawyers and campaign staff say the election is not over and that they are investigating claims in several states, though they continue to lack any evidence of widespread fraud that affected the outcome of the race.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
All disputes over the counts in each state must be complete by Dec. 8. Members of the Electoral College vote on Dec. 14. The U.S. House and Senate hold a joint session on Jan. 6, 2021, to count the electoral votes in each state.

The AP has spoken! Guess it is all over then. /s
Al Gore got 37 days.
What was AP saying then? Probably “count every vote.”
Now all the GOP is saying is “count every legal vote.”
Has AP looked into this themselves? I dont mean asking some random expert who could be bias but actually investigate through paper trails and look?
Doesn’t even mention legislative bypass / contingent Congressional election.
In depth look at the election process. Uh, not so much.
“Trump has won one victory so far: A state court ruled his campaign observers had to be allowed closer to the actual vote counting. That ruling had no impact on the outcome of the race.”
That statement is actually true. They just moved the tables further away from the observers.
Why would they?
AP = BS
ap = Absolutely Propaganda
I don’t capitalize their abbreviation since I’m white, not Black.
Less and less people believe this everyday.
The purpose of such articles is to provide a reference for future exclamations of “It’s been debunked by the AP”.
Pseudo journalism at its finest
The easiest way to steal an election is to double count certain votes.
If spread out over time, fewer votes per day have to be double counted, making the theft easier.
These lying sacks of excrement need to face consequences for their Orwellian pronouncements.
AP=All Phony-just like Bagdad Bob.
S’matter, AssPress - your party hacks getting a little sweat on the ol’ upper lip?
