    Guess I should have read the editorial.  The NYT holds off from clearly labeling it as election fraud (or if they did, I missed it in skimming the article), and the headline is lacking, but the Republicans are clearly identified as the guilty party throughout the text, so I agree with you that this

    THe NYT fails to make it clear that this is not a bipartisan effort, one party alone is to blame for the disenfranchisement and extra costs and that is:

    The Republican Party, from top to bottom and from side to side.

    isn't entirely correct.  However, it would have been much better if they had included "REPUBLICAN election fraud" in the title.

      One of the saddest signs of the politicization of the voting process and the counting of ballots has been the armies of lawyers assembled by both parties in the swing states where the vote is likely to be the closest.
      It was unnecessary to the rest of the text in my view.

      They didn't go the final yard and call it what it is.
