Were did I say it would have changed the election results? I didn't. What I am saying is that these irregularities should be investigated. Or are you good with these things happening as long as YOU get the result that YOU desire?

Please tell me the answer.
Why don't you tell us what you learned from the MSM? This coming from a person that hasn't had a logical, coherent, original thought expressed on this site to date.

Had there been serious voter fraud and convictions I'm sure republicans would have been shouting it out to the world. So far, republicans have proven nothing and the companies with the vote machines are suing people like Guiliani for spreading these lies.

What's you opinion on at least 4 states changing their voting rules in conflict with the U.S. constitution?

Interesting that I have to explain this to someone who claims to be a lawyer.

Article 1 section 4 of the U.S. constitution:
The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such Regulations, except as to the Places of chusing Senators.

Given this, any state, holding an election for senator or representative, where the election rules were changed by the Governor, Attorney General, etc the rules were changed in conflict with the U.S. constitution.

Tell me which specific state laws were changed in violation of the Constitution.

And, but the way, your entire premise has been rejected by the Supreme Court, which has held that the term "Legislature" in the elections clause encompasses any state government exercise of legislative authority, even by state courts and executives. See, e.g.: https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinion...-1314_3ea4.pdf

Read that ruling again, after that if you still think you are right and I have the time, I'll show you where you are very wrong.
