In dealing with election issues, and particularly with mail in elections, one is forced to place a great deal of trust in election officials. Most are hard working, honest, and care deeply about honest elections and the preservation of ballot secrecy. But, as with any process in human affairs, there are some whose greed, arrogance, lust, or simple incompetence make them amenable to fraud and rigging elections. When that happens, and happen it does, our republic is at risk. There is also the grave problem that it is extremely difficult to separate simple incompetence from deliberate fraud in elections.
Our objective here is to present examples of such fraud, ignorance, corruption, misuse of public funds, and simple incompetence, as a warning about placing too much trust in a public official when it comes to handling elections. As President Ronald Reagan put it: "Trust, but verify."
We expect this list to grow with time and contributions are welcome.
