. @maggieNYT claims fraud by mail is "exceedingly rare."

Why doesn't she go back and read her own paper?

The @nytimes pushed back against mail-in voting in 2012: "As more vote by mail, faulty ballots could impact elections"

More mail-in voting means more fraud, according to NYT
NYT: "Fraud Easier Via Mail"

"Absentee voting is to voting in person,” Judge Richard A. Posner of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit has written, “as a take-home exam is to a proctored one.”
Interesting @maggieNYT brings up seniors

NYT: vote by mail hurts seniors most

"Voters in nursing homes can be subjected to subtle pressure, outright intimidation or fraud. The secrecy of their voting is easily compromised. & their ballots can be intercepted both coming & going"
"The problem is not limited to the elderly, of course."

Please, NYT, tell us more: "Absentee ballots also make it much easier to buy and sell votes.

"In recent years, courts have invalidated mayoral elections in Illinois and Indiana because of fraudulent absentee ballots."
But what do the experts say?

"Election law experts say that pulling off in-person voter fraud on a scale large enough to swing an election...is hard to imagine

"There are much simpler and more effective alternatives to commit fraud on such a scale"

How? Nationwide vote by mail
“You could steal some absentee ballots or stuff a ballot box or bribe an election administrator or fiddle w/an electronic voting machine,” said Yale law professor Heather Gerken

"That explains,“why all the evidence of stolen elections involves absentee ballots and the like."
Amazing what was "fit to print" before @realDonaldTrump

Maybe one day the NYT will stop being such hacks.

But probably not.
