A new voter fraud study by economist and political commentator John R. Lott Jr. suggests that there were 289,000 “excess” votes in states where Joe Biden’s victory was only slightly higher than President Donald Trump’s and that the differences in votes were “suspicious.”

Lott analyzed the voting in two key counties, Fulton County, Georgia and Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, where there were multiple accusations of voter fraud. He found irregularities when compared to the 2016 voter data, including the difference in voting by people in neighboring counties. He found statistically significant differences “just across the street,” which suggests potential voter fraud.

Lott discovered that Trump’s rate of absentee voting in Fulton County was much lower than in the four neighboring counties in the 2020 election versus the 2016 election.

“Trump’s percentage of absentee votes was now lower in Fulton county border precincts than in the precincts just across the street in neighboring counties. Trump’s share was 7.19 percentage points lower on the Fulton county side, and the difference was also statistically significant at the 7% level for a two-tailed t-test,” he wrote in his report.

“This is not likely to have been caused by the general shift to absentee voting among Democrats, because the study controlled for in-person voting. In layman’s terms, in precincts with alleged fraud, Trump’s proportion of absentee votes was depressed — even when such precincts had similar in-person Trump vote shares to their surrounding countries. The fact that the shift happens only in absentee ballots, and when a country line is crossed, is suspicious.”

Lott found similar results in Allegheny County, Pa.

His report suggests that if comparable irregularities can be uncovered in Arizona, Michigan, Nevada and Wisconsin, Trump may be able to overturn the election in his favor.

According to Lott, “The estimates here indicate that there were 70,000 to 79,000 ‘excess’ votes in Georgia and Pennsylvania. Adding Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, and Wisconsin, the total increases to up to 289,000 excess votes.”

Meta to reinstate Trump’s Facebook, Instagram ‘in coming weeks’

Meta’s president of Global Affairs Nick Clegg announced former President Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts will be reinstated “in coming weeks” after a more than two-year suspension.

“Our determination is that the risk [to public safety] has sufficiently receded,” Meta Clegg said in a blog post. “As such, we will be reinstating Mr. Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts in the coming weeks. However, we are doing so with new guardrails in place to deter repeat offenses.”

Twitter restored Trump’s account in November following its takeover by billionaire Elon Musk, but the former president has not yet resumed tweeting. Therefore it is unclear if he will use any of his former social media platforms, or instead remain on his own social media platform, Truth Social.

Clegg said “We just do not want — if he is to return to our services — for him to do what he did on January 6, which is to use our services to delegitimize the 2024 election, much as he sought to discredit the 2020 election.”

New “guardrails” include new policies around restricting accounts by public figures during civil unrest. Under those policies, Meta can decide to restrict the account of a public figure that violates its community standards for a time ranging from one month to two years.

“If he now posts further violating content, that content will be removed, of course, and he could be suspended for between one month and two years, depending on the severity of the violation,” Clegg said.

Posts will also be able to be limited on distribution without removing them or temporarily restricting access to its advertising tools. “Oblique references to QAnon content, for instance … is the kind of material that — even if it’s done obliquely, and doesn’t violate our community standards — we would seek to restrict the distribution of the content and/or restrict his ability to advertise,” added Clegg.
