It doesn't happen... repeat after me: "It doesn't happen"...
I didn't know he was going to do it. If you didn't know he was going to do it, you might not know what I'm writing about. I had to read three headlines, this morning, before I learned that Michael Phelps didn't actually race a great white shark. I wasn't interested in the story so I wasn't about to learn more and read either of the first two. They both stated that they raced and he lost.
Let's assume I hadn't seen the third and someone asked me 'Did you hear Michael Phelps raced a shark?' I'd reply yeah, I saw something about it, somewhere. Not only had I seen it but now someone else has and we have given each other confirmation that it actually happened. Except it didn't happen. He raced a computer animation.
Lots of people get their news in a condensed form. There are plenty of people who don't have much time for news and who honestly believe that the Ruskies elected Donald Trump. There are plenty of voters who believe there is no such thing as vote fraud. The news said so.
There was an incident in IL during the primaries last year. Either an office holder/seeker or an election staffer wen to vote and saw the vote tabulate to the opponent in real time. I posted and sourced it, here, at the time so, it can be found. The same paper, at the same time, showed a related link assuring all voters that election integrity is assured. Nothing to worry about and the news said so.
In case you missed it...
Govt Employees Arrested for Allegedly Selling False IDs to Illegal Aliens for Voter Fraud
August 9, 2017
“Federal authorities arrested six persons last week involved in an apparent scheme to produce false identification documents through the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV), some of which were then used as ID to illegally vote in Boston, reported Judicial Watch.
Four RMV employees were arrested along with a document vendor and document dealer for allegedly conspiring to provide Puerto Rico licenses and official state ID cards to illegal immigrants in exchange for cash. In some cases, the false identities and addresses that the perpetrators sold were used to fraudulently register to vote in the state of Massachusetts.”

We should thank the folks at Judicial Watch for their involvement in this growing problem.
The justice department has a standing policy of not investigating voter fraud unless it's *systematic*. 1000 individual cases are essentially a major waste of your tax dollars.
How many votes did Al Frankin win the Minnesota Senate race with? And that was the 60th vote for Obamacare.
Now THAT was a major waste of taxpayer dollars.
