If there's rigging being done here, it would once again appear that He Who Makes The Charges is actually also projecting his own supporters' behavior onto his opponents.

The Des Moines Register reports that a woman has been taken into custody on voter fraud charges after trying to cast two ballots this week -- for Trump.

Terri Lynn Rote, 55, was booked into the Polk County Jail about 3:40 p.m. Thursday on a first-degree election misconduct charge, which is a Class D felony.

Rote, a registered Republican, reportedly cast an early voting ballot at the Polk County Election Office, 120 Second Ave., and another ballot at a county satellite voting location in Des Moines, according to a Des Moines police report.

But hey -- she's just making America Great Again.

There are two others charged with similar acts, but they were not named and their party affiliation is unknown.

Keep up the good work, Trumpistas!
