There's no logical way to reconcile the huge numbers who attend and support Bernie at his rallies and the discrepancies in the numbers voting for Hillary.

We have all watched the media ignore crowds and events for Bernie - I think we've all come to expect that.

But now there's a ton of recent articles reporting fake twitter followers and we know the money David Brock has poured into fake and purchased social media opposition. I think Hillary has really hurt herself with her alliance with him. I know she had to feel like she had no one to stick up for her and I guess he did (read his book Blinded by the Right) but that didn't change him into a nice guy. He's a snake from the same family as Karl Rove.

I'm so disappointed in Democrats if they are engaged in voter fraud!
