Donald Trump is saying repeatedly, without evidence, that fraud is afoot in the counting of votes, particularly in Florida. In one Republican-leaning Florida county, some 150 ballots were cast by fax or e-mail, contrary to the law. None dare call this voter fraud.

Rick Scott could simply allow all votes to be counted. But that would mean counting all ballots in heavily Democratic counties in Florida. Some votes are worth more than others and less subject to voter ID and other necessary guards against fraudulent voting.
