So your contention is that as they haven't found any voter fraud of note (note meaning a serious level Indicating a concerted effort to swing the vote) means they haven't looked?
That's a bit of a stretch.
Trump was screaming fraud before the election and during the count and the media slapped him down saying there is no evidence of voter fraud. So at that point I'm pretty sure they hadn't looked. Obviously there will never be any evidence of voter fraud if you don't look.
On your favourite twitter;
David Shafer, The Chairman of The Republican Party in Georgia has produced evidence that one batch of votes was labeled 10,707 for Biden and 13 for Trump in DeKalb county when in fact it was 1.081 for Biden and 13 for Trump. Quite a mistake and bear in mind Biden is winning this state by 14,000 votes out of 5 million cast.
Mistakes happen it might not be sinister but what is interesting is the little twitter war that went on.
Brendan Keefe, a journalist/broadcaster immediately disputed that this happened.
Then when all sides said it happened he said it was a glitch and was immediately caught and corrected.
Shafer then pointed out this was untrue, it was discovered by a Republican monitor after TWO official counters signed off on the erroneous count.'
He also points out that The Republicans are allowed 1 monitor between 10 counting stations.
By all means check it out but it illustrates 'mistakes' happen although they only seem to favour Biden. It also illustrates that the media do not care to investigate because they have the result they want.
This guy is an award winning investigative journalist and this is happening in his state and it is arousing zero curiosity in him. He is now having to show this evidence but is still pointing out it wouldn't alter the result!
Would they do it? The Democrats have a long history of voter fraud. Lyndon Landslide Johnson run off against Coke Stevensen is almost laughable now. Remember it was the Democrat party in The South that was stopping black people voting in the 60s
Could they do it. Georgia is going to go to Biden by less than 20,000 votes. The Republicans luckily caught one 10,000 'mistake' in one batch in one ward. Mail In votes are known to not be ideal and a lot of the checks and balances have gone out the window. So 100% they could do it.
Bear in mind that a lot of The Republican Party apparatus hate Trump.
Did they do it? With the media thirst for investigatory journalism we will probably never know. This would need forensic checking. Trump was always going to whine about voter fraud but it doesn't mean it didn't happen.
I realise Trump encouraged his voters to turn up in person but even so, some of these mail in numbers for Biden would embarrass Kim Jong Un or Saddam Hussain. I think even Assad would say "98%? Come on guys let's not get carried away!"
TBH Biden isn't a bad thing as long as he can stay alive and keep that dreadful woman out.
The worry always is that they may do something irreversible but given sleepy Joe's activity levels over 47 years I would imagine he is just going to pick up the salary and feather Hunter's nest. If you are hoping he is going to cure covid or kick start the world economy then you are going to have a long wait. Delaware waited 36 years for him to wake up
