LBJ Stole the Senate in 1948

Democrats have been cheating for a long time.  In 1948 Lyndon Baines Johnson (LBJ) cheated in the Democratic Party runoff to steal the election from Coke Stevenson, who had been Governor of Texas.  Per Wikipedia:  "On the day of the election, Johnson appeared to have lost the Democratic run-off primary to Stevenson. Six days after polls had closed, 202 additional ballots were found in Precinct 13 of Jim Wells County, all of which were in Johnson's favor." (

Stolen elections have been happening for decades.  Election theft is generally covered up.  In this case, it was one Democrat cheating another Democrat.  Later on President LBJ made a thorough mess of Vietnam, proving that cheaters make bad leaders.
