Voter fraud is about an individual breaking the law. This is not a threat to democracy and, as extensive research has shown, is infinitesimally small.

Election fraud, otoh, means that people in power rigged the system so that the voters’ will is overturned. When this happens, it threatens to destroy our democracy.

With this sharp distinction in mind…..

….Last weekend, Trump told Republicans in PA why he is focusing on races for supervisor of elections in 2022. “We have to be a lot sharper the next time when it comes to counting the vote. There’s a famous statement: “Sometimes the vote counter is more important than the candidate,” and we can’t let that ever, ever happen again. They have to get tougher and smarter.

Voter fraud in America is vanishingly rare and has not affected the outcome of elections, and it is almost always prosecuted. But Trump loyalists used cries of VOTER FRAUD! as an excuse to commit ELECTION FRAUD. Whether they will be prosecuted for it is an open question.

The idea that it’s an “open question” is repugnant.
