When the Republicans are the ones screaming about vote fraud:

We spoke to the Randall County Elections Office and they were aware of this mistake but addressed it as user-error. They said that there are several voters each year who report that their ballots are mismarked, but they are usually caused by the voter accidentally selecting a different party.

“Everyone knows of course Hillary’s belief is, it takes a village,” Trump said. “Which only makes sense in places like Haiti where she’s taken a number of them.”

Trump’s comments came after the evening got off to a frosty start, with Clinton and Trump declining once again to shake hands, the Associated Press reported. In live video, the candidates could be seen sitting just feet apart but acknowledging each other only briefly.
