Trump Wants "Election Observers" to Prevent the Massive Cheating He Expects

His whining and belly-aching know no bounds, and he’s going to ride this all the way through his loss in November.

POLITICO is reporting today on the latest move made by the Trump campaign in his Tour of Whine.

Donald Trump’s campaign is seeking to recruit “election observers” following the Republican nominee’s repeated claims that the general election is “rigged.”

In a move that’s unprecedented in a presidential election, the campaign late this week launched a page on its website proclaiming, “Help Me Stop Crooked Hillary From Rigging This Election! Please fill out this form to receive more information about becoming a volunteer Trump Election Observer.”

Those who wish to be a Trump “observer” are asked to fill out information on the website that should match their voter registration. Once submitted, voters are directed to a donation page.

Trump was in Altoona, Pennsylvania on Friday night and as he has in recent rallies around the country, he made his predictions of massive cheating by the Clinton machine.

I’m not entirely convinced he’s wrong. The biggest cheat was likely made before Trump entered the race, but I digress…

“She can’t beat what’s happening here. The only way they can beat it in my opinion, and I mean this 100 percent, if in certain sections of the state they cheat,” Trump said of Clinton campaign in Pennsylvania.

Although laws vary from state to state, campaigning by political parties is typically banned at polling sites under voter intimidation laws.

I’ve worked polling sites during elections. Poll watchers are allowed, but they’re not to be on hand to campaign for a particular candidate.

This is Trump laying a heavy foundation to account for the inevitable outcome in November.

I guess it beats running a professional and competent campaign.
