Rigged Elections


For John, BLUFI think Professor Carter may be a Democrat.  Nothing to see here; just move along.




The author is Yale Law Professor Stephen L Carter, and the source is Bloomberg.

Here is the penultimate paragraph:

The partisan will insist that all of the cases I have mentioned are different from the current political moment.  Black voters were intimidated in the South 1876.  The Supreme Court did put an end to the Florida recount in 2000.  But such nuances miss the point.  The principal charge against Trump is that merely suggesting the possibility of unfairness in the election outcome constitutes an offense against our democracy.  If that’s so, then lots of us are guilty.
But, of course this time is different.

I do think Law Prof Glenn Reynolds is on to something when he says Mr Trump runs like a Republican, but campaigns like a Democrat, which isn't fair on his part.

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
