But it’s all too plausible and there’s a reason why everything thinks McKinsey is evil:

American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) CEO Lisa Nelson told a room full of conservative activists that ALEC had been working with three GOP attorneys on “action items that legislators can take to question the validity of an election.” The comments were made during a strategy session about elections at the Council for National Policy in February 2020.
“Obviously we all want President Trump to win,” said Lisa Nelson, chair of the controversial American Legislative Exchange Council, which was responsible for getting the at-times-lethal “Stand your ground” laws enacted in several states.
“They can write a letter to the secretary of state questioning the validity of an election and saying what did happen that night,” Nelson said. “So we are drafting a lot of those things. If you have ideas in that area, let us know and we’ll get those to the state legislators and they can start to kind of exercise their political muscle in that area.”
So let’s be clear. The election was months away, and the right wing extremists were already planning how to muscle their way into the courts and claim it as a victory, no matter what.
ALEC writes the corporate-friendly legislation, and their members sponsor the bill. It’s been clear that ALEC (and right-wing groups like it) have been writing Trump’s agenda — with help from lobbyists like Ginni Thomas (aka Mrs. Clarence Thomas).
So this wasn’t a spur of the moment reaction. This was planned out in advance to maintain minority rule: Heads I win, tales you lose.

And it’s about damned time. I can’t tell you what their ad monopolies have done to strangle online sites:
The Justice Department has filed an antitrust lawsuit against Google for allegedly abusing its power and dominance over smaller rivals.— NPR (@NPR) October 20, 2020

This DOJ case mirrors the one that the Russians did in 2014, and Russia is the only country in the world that has actually broken Google's monopoly and has a competitive search market. https://t.co/tc2XcygVQM— Matt Stoller (@matthewstoller) October 20, 2020
These boys are going full fascist now. Buckle up!
OH CHRIST—Trump HHS just did full “power grab” takeover of all drug/vaccines. Via “stunning declaration” of authority, HHS Secretary Azar barred FDA from signing any new rules—power now “is reserved to the Secretary.” Trump now controls all of it. #COVID19 https://t.co/MZcOBN4TGr— Eric Feigl-Ding (@DrEricDing) September 21, 2020
For lying to Congress. Jim Cooper’s question to DeJoy was, “Did you pay back several of your top executives for contributing to Trump’s campaign by bonus-ing or rewarding them?” He lied:
