    Not to defend this moron, but y'all have lost the plot.

    Maine has same day registration.That's the law in question here. GOP legislature got rid of it after 2010, and the voters put it back in a year ago. So, he's implying that people who didn't actually live there came in and registered and voted on election day, evading any way to check their residence or eligibility.

    Not bloody likely that this happened, but, in theory, it could happen.

        After 2010 -- after the 2010 elections...when GOP legislature sat...which would be 2011. I thought that was clear.

          Which to me is the element of genius that the Republicans will never suspect...
