Cher Pushes New Conspiracy Theory: Trump Can 'Change Votes in His Favor'
Aging singer claims president 'has people' who can alter votes - demands 'DIGNITY'
Far-left singer Cher is pushing a new conspiracy theory on social media; that President Donald Trump "has people" who "change the votes in his favor" during elections.
The aging entertainer made the ALL-CAPS allegations on Twitter before demanding "DIGNITY & KNOWLEDGE."
Cher was responding to a story published by the Mississippi Clarion Ledger, which reported that voting machines in two Mississippi counties changed voters’ votes in the state’s GOP gubernatorial primary runoff.
Voters who cast ballots claimed the touch-screen voting machine switched their selected votes.
Officials in two counties confirmed the alleged vote flipping malfunction.
One of the candidate's campaign says they've heard of instances happening in several counties, were the machines automatically changed individuals' intended selections.
Cher shared the story with her fans, and somehow linked it to President Trump.
“IS ANY1 GULLIBLE ENOUGH 2THINK trump DOESN’T”ALREADY HAVE”PPL 2 CHANGE VOTES IN HIS FAVOR!? AM SICK OF YELLING, & POUNDING [my fist] TILL [angry face emoji]. I WANT DIGNITY &KNOWLEDGE.” Cher said.

To clarify, the votes were not changed by “people” as Cher seems to suggest they could have been.
Anna Moak, a spokeswoman for the Secretary of State's Office, said the issue was caused by a faulty TSX machine that is being replaced.
Moak pointed out that “machines are county-owned and tested by local officials,” the Mississippi Clarion Ledger reported.
“To our knowledge, only one machine was malfunctioning,” Moak added.
Earlier this month, the Grammy-winner cited a smear from MSNBC host Rachel Maddow to spread fake news about her president.
“I Believe trump is more than a racist,more than a White supremacist,More Than a white nationalist,” Cher said, citing a misleading story from Maddow about Trump’s latest federal judicial nominee Steven Menashi.
“As I see his actions,& hear his rhetoric,I hear the drum beat of Ethno Nationalism.
"HOW CAN trump BE PRESIDENT OF AMERICA…HE HATES SO MANY ”AMERICANS.’”
