Nick Confessore of the New York Times is convinced that large scale voter fraud has never happened in the United States. That’s what he said on MSNBC this week. Apparently he has never heard of ACORN. And what about the 2012 election, when entire districts in Philadelphia didn’t cast a single vote for Mitt Romney?

NYT Reporter: ‘No Evidence’ of Large-Scale Vote Fraud in the U.S. ‘Ever’
New York Times political reporter Nicholas Confessore said Thursday that the United States has never had any “large-scale fraud in voting.”
On “Deadline: White House,” host Nicolle Wallace lambasted President Donald Trump for saying “millions” voted illegally. She asked Confessore to “take on all the falsehoods and the lies” Trump was spreading, and Confessore did not just criticize Trump’s claim but also said the U.S. has never seen large-scale voting fraud.
“First of all, so there is no evidence—no one has ever found any evidence of large-scale fraud in voting in the country ever,” Confessore said. “It does not happen.”
Confessore’s comment does not accord with a great deal of historical evidence about party machines in American history, which used a range of fraudulent means to control elections. Chicago had a Democratic Party machine in the 20th century that dominated politics through voting fraud.

Somehow, we don’t believe Confessore is correct on this point.
