Interesting piece that describes how one young (age 23) guy made up that story last summer about ballot boxes full of Clinton votes being found in a Cleveland warehouse, for fun and profit.

It involves an expired website, a picture of a dude in England with non-fake ballot boxes, and the realization that you can get more clicks on fake news that will appeal to conservatives than from moderates or liberals.

Here's the story.

It had a sad ending: the guy waited too long to sell his domain name, and missed selling at the peak of its market value.

Obviously those Clinton votes weren't counted, so the election was rigged and Trump is illegitimate.

This is a fake fake news story. The fake boxes of votes were in Columbus.
