And it starts…
The Trump campaign has filed a lawsuit in Nevada, stating voter fraud stemming from an incident Friday night when a polling station in Las Vegas stayed open late to accommodate all voters who were in line to vote.
The rule is, if you are in line by 8pm, you can vote. Because the line was long, the polling station had to remain open until 10 to receive all the voters.
So Trump is already laying the groundwork for his “rigged campaign”.
Kellyanne Conway and Nevada GOP Chairman Michael McDonald planted the seeds of doubt a couple of days ago.
From The Huffington Post:
“Last night in Clark County they kept a poll open till 10 o’clock at night so a certain group could vote,” McDonald said at a Trump rally in Reno. “The polls are supposed to close at 7 p.m. This was kept open till 10 p.m. Yeah, you feel free right now? You think this is a free and easy election?”
McDonald appeared to be referring to an early voting site at Cardenas supermarket in the heavily Hispanic east Las Vegas neighborhood, which processed voters for about two hours after its posted closing time. Pictures of voter crowds there got attention on social media.
