Skeptical 70,000 black voters abstained from presidential vote

Uhm, should a stolen election go into an ongoing part of the forum or does it go here in a part of the forum that will be shut down soon?

http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/national-party-news/311099-skeptical-70000-black-voters-abstained-from

Should 70,000 uncounted black votes cast in Detroit during last monthís general election matter? Are black voters like black lives in that they matter in American politics? Should black votes have the same chance of being counted as other American votes?

Detroit is not a 100 percent black city, but an overwhelming majority of her residents are black Americans.

Former presidential candidate Dr. Jill Steinís challenge to election results in Michigan and Pennsylvania ended in a crushing defeat. Federal court decisions halted recount efforts in both states. Although her recount challenge in Wisconsin played out to conclusion. She did not get a win there either. It resulted in President-Elect Trump increasing his victory total over Secretary Hillary Clinton by more than 1,000 votes.

7. I wouldn't put it past some of them

to have been bribed. Russian agents hires a few people to go around to some small towns - "here is $5,000, look the other way when we put these ballots into the machine (flip the levers, press the button, etc)"

6. The link is BS.

70,000 did not vote for president. They WERE counted. They voted in down ballot races.
