Lee Camp, host of Redacted Tonight, joins Dennis Trainor, Jr. for a conversation about blatant voter suppression, election fraud, #ExitPollGate and more.
Lee Camp has been digging hard into the issue of Election fraud, voter suppression, and the wide disparity between exit poll data and election results. He captured that exit poll disparity in a meme he published last week. The actor Tim Robbins then re-tweeted it making the idea go viral.
The hashtag that Robbins chose here is a bit confusing. Fraud has been committed on voters, to be sure, but there was no voter fraud. If Camp’s #ExitPollGate findings are correct, what is playing out here is voter suppression and the total hijacking of our democracy.
Josh Holland, writing at Raw Story, took issue with Lee’s data, writing:
Here we have an example of an actor citing a comedian who picked up a claim from an anonymous Reddit user citing preliminary exit poll data put together by a JFK conspiracy theorist. Bringing it all full circle is The Hill, which ran a story titled, “Actor Tim Robbins blames Sanders losses on ‘voter fraud,’” which will no doubt be shared thousands of times on Facebook and Twitter.
Lee responds to Holland’s critique in the podcast above.
