It's not about the proof. It's about getting the media to repeat your claims

Pinche Mateo: The fact that she lost is all the proof she needs.


She lost the Republican primary, by A LOT, so that would mean the Republicans were cheating for her to lose.   No, she threw this shiat at the wall to add yet another lie to the pile of shiat the GOP ran on so that they could further work to take away voting rights.

Who was "damaged" by these assertions?  Every time a politician lies about being cheated, they should be held liable.

Proof isn't needed, all that's important is belief.

Well, she certainly got the attention she was craving.

Like yelling FIRE!!!! in a crowded theatre is against the law, yelling cheating or fraud without proof in elections should result in arrest. It undermines democracy and our republic.

Tired of this.

I wish a reporter would call her a liar to her lying face right in the middle of an interview.

But then she, and her lying friends, wouldn't come back on your show and tell you more lies.

You see the pickle that the media is in.

On a more practical level: Instead of arrest, how about losing your right to ever run again?

Of course there is proof. They are Democrat. The only people that vote for them are dead people and illegal immigrants. Everyone knows that.

I wonder if they realize that these theatrics only make their evidence-free claims less believable.

The kids are cheating...
How?
The libs are cheating...
Show the AG how you know.
The libs are cheating....
Seriously give us any evidence you have.
Can't, gave it to my cousins 15 year old, he is good with the cyberspace, he says the libs are cheating....
Well give us his contact info so we can look at what he has found.

I think they can get away with it by claiming they didn't say *who* was doing it.

The person who rightfully won the election might have a case by saying that they're affecting their ability to govern because she's claiming that they were fraudulently elected, so other officials might disregard them as if they're illegitimate.... But can you prove damages on that?

And if you sue her to shut her up, she'd probably claim it's some form of SLAPP (strategic litigation against public participation).  Do we have any lawyers willing to assess if Virginia's 2017 SLAPP-back law would protect her?

... but I still think this sort of thing is borderline seditious, but I'm not aware of any laws against stochastic terrorism, and it might be difficult to get one that doesn't conflict with the first amendment.  (My understanding is that the 'fire in a crowded theater' was musings in a court opinion and didn't specifically say that was illegal)

So offensive. I'm neither dead nor illegal and I voted for Biden at least 100 times

No she didn't.

In a ranked choice convention, she came in 3rd of 6, making it to all 6 rounds.   She wasn't exactly in striking distance of Youngkin in the rounds, but she was a lot closer than she should have been.

AND, overall, she refers to herself as "Trump in heels," so it's 100% playbook to not have evidence.

That's because Amanda Hugginkiss has all the evidence. She was right here and now she's gone.  I can't find her.

Oh, why can't I find Amanda Hugginkiss?

Give her some space, people! Fabricating fraud evidence from whole cloth and making it appear credible is a REALLY difficult task, so there are a TON of numbers to crunch and obfuscate. Just ask Pillow McDoucheface.
 
2021-12-03 9:55:33 AM  
She has no proof because it didn't happen. Her sole point was to motivate the Right to get out and vote by saying the Left was cheating. And, on the off chance the Right lost, they'd have ammunition to say, "see! They obviously cheated because we lost". Trump made this the new standard because it worked. Divide and conquer. Baffle ''em with Bullshiat. Get used to it, it's the way it will be for sometime to come.

Republicans don't want people digging for proof because they'd find proof. Proof that Republicans cheated.

Every Republican accusation is an confession...

Virginia?  Oh yeah, I cast five or six votes in Virginia the last election.  I've never lived there.  Everyone at the polls is about 85, they can't see a thing.
 
2021-12-03 10:44:58 AM  
Just so I understand, "losing" is now called "the other side is cheating"...?

Ah yes.  One of the great orange one's tells was when he was oddly specific about his accusations.

Like when he insisted that Hillary didn't have real supporters, they were just paid actors that she didn't even pay.

I mean, sure, she did that pretending to see someone in the audience and wave to them so it seems like she has friends thing, but who's the one who has a reputation for stiffing people so they have to sue him to get paid? Who paid people to watch his escalator ride to announce his candidacy?

The more detail that he gave about an accusation seemed to be more likely that they were things that people had accused him of doing.

Which isn't the standard political playbook.  Usually it's accuse the other party of something that you're _planning_ on doing, so that after a while you can then justify doing it yourself, claiming that they do it, too.

You don't go and advertise what shady things people should be looking for in your past.

There's always voter fraud. But it's usually in the range of not enough to have made any difference. And so far it's also turned out to be Republicans that are committing the fraud. So coming up with evidence to validate the lie is pretty tough when it's your party committing fraud. No election anywhere at anytime has ever been without some chicanery.

Anyone claiming election fraud should be given 90 days to come up with any proof or be tossed out on their ass.
