Although Trump maintains that there was serious misconduct in the election, as far as is known, no evidence of this has yet been provided. His supporters are now pulling the wallet to encourage potential whistleblowers to sign up. A top Republican executive from the state of Texas even makes a million dollars (about 850,000 euros) available.
Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick says in a statement that people with useful information should turn it over to the local police. “Anyone who provides information leading to an arrest and conviction for electoral fraud will receive a minimum of $ 25,000,” the Republican promises.
A major Trump fundraiser, Bill White, says in The Washington Examiner newspaper that he also raised a million dollars. This can be used to pay informants who provide information about abuses. He and his partners set up a group called Concerned People for Election Integrity: Concerned People for the Integrity of Elections. People can turn to that with evidence.
The controversial organization Project Veritas, which wants to demonstrate corruption in media and institutions through undercover operations, has put $ 25,000 on the table for tips about irregularities in Pennsylvania. According to American media, that state went to the Democrat Joe Biden, who therefore had enough electors behind him to win the election.
The New York Times newspaper also investigated and contacted authorities in dozens of American states to inquire about irregularities. No one reported serious wrongdoing that could affect the outcome of the elections. There were reports of technical problems and a few examples of voters who had voted twice.
Republicans also disagree among themselves on how seriously Trump’s allegations should be taken. “I have supported you, Mr. President,” tweeted Republican Corey Stapleton, Montana’s Secretary of the Interior. He wrote that Trump has had “incredible achievements,” but that time is now over. “Bite your lip and congratulate Joe Biden.”
