NY Times: Trump’s Fraud Claims Died in Court, but the Myth of Stolen Elections Lives On
For years, Republicans have used the specter of cheating as a reason to impose barriers to ballot access. A definitive debunking of claims of wrongdoing in 2020 has not changed that message.
The claims never really got a hearing in court. The courts dodged a decision on the merits in virtually every case.
To say that there was a “definitive debunking” is misleading. There was not debunking of the merits of the claims. The evidence that dead people actually voted has not been debunked. The evidence that people double voted has not been debunked. The evidence that blue state operatives illegally excluded Republican poll watchers has not been debunked.
