"Minnesota Ripe for Election Fraud"

John Lott offers this opinion piece at FOX News.

The claims in this piece are entirely irresponsible. I find nothing out of the ordinary about how the number of ballots are shifting as Minnesota election officials check their totals. Nor should it be surprising if, under clear Minnesota election law, the numbers shift significantly upon a count of the undervotes---as mandated by Minnesota election law to ascertain the intent of the voter.

All that pieces like this do is fan the flames of lack of voter confidence in the electoral process without good empirical support.
