Mr/Mrs Unknown, thanks for keeping me honest.
Just FYI. "Benford's Law" is not about the distribution of a data set, it's all about the distribution of the numerical count itself within a dataset, and how that numerical count should distribute its "first digit"."Benford's law, also called the Newcomb–Benford law, the law of anomalous numbers, or the first-digit law, is an observation about the frequency distribution of leading digits in many real-life sets of numerical data."
Thanks for pointing that out.I eliminated the content but left the post standing as a "blank". It is good have a permanent record of mistakes. It keeps me humble.
Benford's Law may or may not apply in unraveling this mess, but I found this discussion of ballot anomalies very interesting.https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1325592112428163072.htmlThe writer doe have another aggregated thread regarding Benford's Law, too.
Must be something to it. Facebook won't let it be shared at all; saying it has been found by some to be abusive. What? Stranger and stranger.
