Maybe, just maybe, election fraud also exists.
TLDR, but the first part of the article is shtusim. My business' legal address is still at my house while I employ 7 people at a different location. On my PPP it is my house listed.

CMIIW but I don’t think anyone denies election fraud exists. The problem anyone rational should have is with the claim that there was widespread systemic fraud by one specific party with zero evidence or credible reason other than wild aspersions by the loser.

Also CMIIW but I believe most of us have moved past this embarrassing episode?

Your house isn't on the south side of Chicago. Just sayin'

Quote
The newly released records solve a mystery that has clouded the SBA program for months. Across the country, the number of $10,000 grants approved is equal to about two-thirds of small businesses with 10 or more employees, according to the most recent Census data available. But in some congressional districts around Chicago, Atlanta, Miami, Houston and elsewhere, $10,000 grants far outnumbered eligible businesses. Nationwide, the excess was about 133,000 grants, worth $1.3 billion in all.

In ZIP code 60620, which encompasses the South Hermitage block in the Auburn-Gresham neighborhood of Chicago, Census data show at most 156 establishments big enough to qualify for the largest SBA grant. But the agency sent 3,824 grants of $10,000 there, suggesting that the vast majority of payments involved fraud.

I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

This article has insane stuff. Sadly 613 also participated in similar stuff on a big scale.

Pretty crazy because the only major pro at the final table was disqualified and awarded ninth place automatically because he tested positive for COVID. Obviously the frum guy might still have outlasted at least 1 person (he came into the final table in 6th with 8.2% of the chips), but that's an extra $27k to tzedaka because the other guy finished ninth.

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

It's too long, it could really be cut in half, but as it is, the 2nd half is better then the first IMO.
This line is the TLDR

Even where these 11 schools are concerned, accepting the claims of ex-Hasidim regarding their former schools is like relying on a divorcé for information about his ex-wife.

That's just one line out of the article which doesn't make it very classy. I gave up on the article half way, when I saw the (lack of) quality and it was just way too long without really engaging in thought provoking or intellectual reading. Total contrast with the pieces @Yehuda57 brought from Tablet Magazine.
