Man, this lie pops up a lot-

On Glee, of all places, I heard someone repeat the popular lie that JFK stole the 1960 election by having his mob buddies stuff ballot boxes in Illinois, winning him the state. That is not what happened.

I'm not referring to the election fraud - I wasn't there, so I can't speak to it authoritatively. I can, however, say that whatever the mob did, it didn't steal JFK the election. Why not? Please consult this chart.

Either way, Kennedy wins. Maybe JFK cheated, but it didn't swing the election.
