Election Meltdown, Part 4

Rhetoric and reality: When is it OK to say an election was “stolen”?


Episode Notes

In the fourth part of this special five-part series of Amicus, Dahlia Lithwick is joined by election law professor Rick Hasen and Professor Carol Anderson, Charles Howard Candler Professor of African American Studies at Emory University and author of  One Person, No Vote: How Voter Suppression is Destroying Our Democracy. Together, they try to sort through the rhetoric and the reality of “stolen” elections.
