More seriously, are any Republicans in office making claims of fraud with actual credible evidence? This reminds me of Obama's birth certificate. Actual members of congress were fairly silent on the issue and the noise was all from people not in office. It seemed to me at the time that if there was real evidence that Obama was not qualified to be president the Republicans in congress would be more than happy to produce it. Same here. If there is credible evidence of fraud then Republicans in congress should want to act on that and make Trump president.
This ~looks~like~ a viable methodology. This ~resembles~ a testable hypothesis.
All that's required-- is for Driftless to abide by the results of Driftless's own criteria: If elected officials are willing to co-sign Trump's claims, then Driftless must concede that the claims are credible.
(Because, after all, if Driftless is just tossing-out hoops to jump through-- but then ignoring it when the hoops are jumped through-- then that's not scientific. It's bad faith chickenshit fuckery.)
