As Donald Trump swept his campaign across the country in a final sprint, he claimed that long lines in Clark County, Nevada, were evidence of electoral wrongdoing.
“It’s being reported that certain key Democratic polling locations in Clark County were kept open for hours and hours beyond closing time to bus and bring Democratic voters in,” Trump said.
“Folks, it’s a rigged system. It’s a rigged system. And we’re going to beat it,” he said.
Before Trump took the stage, Michael McDonald, the state chairman of the Nevada Republican Party seemed to assert that the polls were staying open to allow for “a certain group” to vote.
“Last night in Clark County. They kept a poll open until 10 o’clock at night so a certain group could vote. It wasn’t in an area that normally has high transition,” he said. “You think this is a free and easy election?”
I have seen no evidence of illegal voting in Nevada. Jon Ralson doesn’t think much of it.
As I wrote earlier today, If you are asking: “Why should we make it easy for *these* people to vote?”, you’re doing democracy wrong.
