    Does increasing election security amount to voter suppression?

    I don’t want to make too much of this, because it’s certainly possible that the next outside group will come back and said, Oh, yes, massive fraud. Look, it’s become an article of faith among the Always Trumpers [my term] that there was large-scale fraud. And this has big doses of prejudice...
