In 1995, the U.S. Supreme Court let stand the ruling of a federal district judge in Pennsylvania that invalidated a state senate election and ordered the vacancy be filled by the losing opponent. The Pennsylvania state senate held a special election in November 1993 to fill a seat that had been left vacant by the death of the previous democratic Senator, and pitted Republican Bruce Marks against Democrat William G. Stinson for the spot. Stinson was named the winner, but massive fraud was later uncovered that resulted in litigation. Two of the elected officials who testified in the Pennsylvania case said under oath that they were aware of the fraud, had intentionally failed to enforce laws, and ...
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration said on Friday that despite Russian attempts to undermine the presidential election, it has concluded that the results “accurately reflect the will of the American people.”
The statement came as liberal opponents of Donald J. Trump, some citing fears of vote hacking, are seeking recounts in three states — Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania — where his margin of victory was extremely thin.
A drive by Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate, for recounts in those states had brought in more than $5 million by midday on Friday, her campaign said, and had increased its goal to $7 million. She filed for a recount in Wisconsin on Friday, about an hour before the deadline.
In its statement, the administration said, “The Kremlin probably expected that publicity surrounding the disclosures that followed the Russian government-directed compromises of emails from U.S. persons and institutions, including from U.S. political organizations, would raise questions about the integrity of the election process that could have undermined the legitimacy of the president-elect.”
That was a reference to the breach of the Democratic National Committee’s email system, and the leak of emails from figures like John D. Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman.
“Nevertheless, we stand behind our election results, which accurately reflect the will of the American people,” it added.

I think this is the first article you've ever made, that doesn't blame the Russians for something.
What's up with that? Did the Russian hiding behind every bush, under every rock, all go away after Nov. 9?

No only that but the Democratic party is now trying to get a leader that is a Muslin with prior ties to the Muslim brotherhood and other questionable groups.
The Democrats are imploding from within, either that or they have been infiltrated by foreign interest groups thanks to Hillary and her money laundering foundation that now wants the favor pay in full with access to US politics, what better way than owning a main presidential party.

Well that's it then. Hillary is now President because Russia hacked emails but she did nothing wrong in the emails or with her foundation so what did Russia do again? Exposed something where there was no wrong doing but caused her to lose for doing nothing wrong. Ok. Makes perfect sense.

A spokesperson for Ellison told CNN that Ellison "rejects all forms of anti-Semitism" and said "the right wing has been pushing these stories for years to drive a wedge between Congressman Ellison and the Jewish community." Since announcing his candidacy for the DNC chair, Jewish groups like the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and J-Street have come to Ellison's defense on his past associations and writings.
