Goofs

The plot of the episode hinges on a supposed act of voter fraud, and the evidence given is that Bob's campaign used the names of dead people and pets to vote for him. However, the polls showed 99 or 100% support for Bob anyway. So obviously, all the legitimate voters did actually vote for him, which means that the fraudulent votes did not make any difference. Bob really did win the election legitimately. See more »

Quotes
