Ruben Navarrette: Audit found 282 dead voters in Maricopa County, Arizona, had no merit. He says it was an important part of the narrative: Here was a place where suspect ballots were cast, amplifying confidence in the election results. He notes that, despite all of this attention and focus, no more than a dozen or two cases of fraud have come to light. He asks: Why even bother covering it? The answer is simple. It’s very easy to wave this away, to shrug at another claim of fraud falling apart, he says. Why not just drop them all in one drop box? Is that even illegal? He says the film, Dinesh D’Souza's “2000 Mules”
D’Souza and the analysis team, True the Vote, claim to have analyzed weeks of cellphone movement. They purport to be able to pick out people moving between ballot drop-box locations in a given day. But they can't figure out where those people live? Why not bring a film crew to those houses and interview alleged participants? He didn't answer. The point isn’t to determine the price of the house, it’s to keep anyone from wanting to buy it.
