Lance Scranton: Defining indefensible

How do you defend the indefensible? Someone asked me that after the now infamous “hot mic” remarks made by Donald Trump. My answer is pretty simple: I don’t, I won’t and never will. But then I asked how they define indefensible, and down the rabbit hole we went! What makes something truly indefensible is a conversation America needs to have with itself. I don’t live in Donald Trump’s world, nor do I have access to his intent but I do know that what he said was demeaning to women and objectified the fairer sex.

The 2016 presidential election is by all accounts one of the most unusual and anxiety-producing events in recent American history. In such an important election, it is essential that each and every vote is accounted for and legally cast. Many voters and election officials have been equally alarmed by news reports claiming voter fraud using the names of deceased persons. While there are cases where votes have been cast in the name of a deceased individual, in most cases the vote was mistakenly cast due to clerical error or misinformation rather than actual voter fraud.
