Fox Host Lou Dobbs Pushes Baseless Fraud Claim After Lamenting He Can’t Find Any “Actual Proof”

Fox Business host Lou Dobbs complained that he could not find “actual proof” of election fraud but insisted that he was sure it took place despite a complete absence of evidence.

"Eight weeks from the election and we still don't have verifiable, tangible support for the crimes that everyone knows were committed," Dobbs said on his show Monday. “We know that's the case in Nevada. We know it's the case in Pennsylvania and a number of other states, but we have had a devil of a time finding actual proof."

Guest Ed Rollins, the head of a pro-Trump PAC, claimed that “we haven't been able to get it before the courts" and that "no one's going to take this case up."

There is no evidence of widespread fraud that could have changed the result of the election in Nevada, Pennsylvania, or any other state. Trump and his allies have attempted more than 60 legal challenges, and many courts have rejected them on their merits.

Dobbs keeps pushing:

Despite turning up no evidence on his claim, Dobbs complained that there was not enough Republicans to support Trump’s plan to challenge the Electoral College results on Wednesday over what he baseleslly described as an “ongoing, substantial and vigorous conspiracy that has spanned more than four years in an effort to block and overthrow President Trump."

Dobbs previously pushed another false conspiracy theory that voting machines changed votes from Trump to Biden but has not mentioned it after a lawsuit threat from the voting machine company forced him to air a segment debunking the claim.

Electoral College challenge doomed:

The Republican plan to challenge the Electoral College results has garnered support from more than a dozen Republican Senators and dozens of House Republicans but the futile scheme has no chance of affecting the election results.

Though the Republicans can challenge the count, as Democrats did in 2005, but the result would only be a two-hour delay in certification. The majority of the Democratic-led House would have to support the challenge, which won’t happen, and a majority of Senate Republicans are also likely to balk at the idea.
