11/18/20 Jacob Sullum on Trump’s Flimsy Election Fraud Case
Scott talks to Jacob Sullum about the allegations of widespread fraud in November’s presidential elections. Sullum concedes that errors in counting, illegal votes and deliberate obfuscation do sometimes happen in isolated situations—but maintains that the widespread conspiracy alleged by the Trump team would be basically impossible. Even in the handful of cases where Trump has won temporary legal victories, they simply don’t amount to anything close to what he would need to reverse the results of the election. Sullum is no fan of Biden, but still realizes that it’s bad if half of the country considers the results of the election illegitimate.
Discussed on the show:
- “The Case Against Biden: Joe Biden’s Politics of Panic” (Reason)
- Yesterday’s Man: The Case Against Joe Biden
