Dead men may not wear plaid, but they do vote for Hillary Clinton—at least according to Rudy Giuliani. Donald Trump is convinced the presidential election is rigged, and the former NYC mayor, one of his top surrogates, think he knows who's coming out of the woodwork to help defeat the GOP nominee. "I'm sorry, dead people generally vote for Democrats," Giuliani told Jake Tapper Sunday morning on CNN's State of the Union, per CNN. Giuliani explained that Democrats "control" polling sites in major inner cities and that illegal voters are transported from polling site to polling site, Politico reports. "What they do is they leave dead people on the rolls and then they pay people to vote [as] those dead people, four, five, six, seven, eight [times]," he says, adding he'd have to be a "moron" to think voting would be on the up and up in cities like Chicago and Philly.

Giuliani conceded, however, that such fraud likely wouldn't have a huge impact in battleground states unless it was a close race. He also used his screen time to seemingly point out Jessica Leeds—a woman accusing Trump of sexual assault on an airplane in the '80s—is spinning an unbelievable story. "Fifteen minutes of groping in a first-class cabin of an airplane? It doesn't make sense," Giuliani said, without mentioning Leeds by name. "You see everything that goes on in first class." Meanwhile, Trump running mate Mike Pence "delicately broke" with these narratives on Sunday's Meet the Press, noting he'd never "disparage any woman" who made assault claims against Trump, though he says he believes Trump, per the Washington Post. Pence added "the sense" of a rigged election comes from "obvious" media bias, but "we will absolutely accept the result of the election." (More Rudy Giuliani stories.)
