In the second in a series of special election episodes of CounterPunch Radio, Eric is joined by attorney, professor of political science, and author Bob Fitrakis to discuss the results of the US election and why they should worry anyone interested in election integrity. Eric and Bob examine the exit poll and final vote data, and discuss the possibility that the election was stolen for Donald Trump. They explore the recent history of voter fraud, how election tampering works in the age of electronic voting machines, voter suppression, the role of private companies in administering elections, and much more. Trump was right to suggest the election could be rigged; he was wrong about who would benefit. Forget the anger at the prospects of the Age of Trump, and instead consider the question: Is a Trump Administration even legitimate?
