Lots of click-bait, advertisements, and the article itself is very short. They are asking for you to share their article on many different social media platforms.

to answer your question I am unsure if working for two sources is trust worthy. On one hand if a person works for multiple sources it could mean they are so good they work for multiple sources. also it means they are getting more experience working in the field. On the other hand it could be because they are trying to earn more money.

The Hill: to trust or not to trust??

I do not think that working for more than one news platform is unusual, specifically online media outlets. Additionally, Max Greenwood is not an author at Huffington post, he is an intern in the politics team. The article is short but does not draw crazy conclusions that confirm nor deny voter fraud; it simply gives quotes from the politicians involved rather than feeding the readers an opinion. Asking to share on social media does not raise flags for me because every online article wants to be shared. The article titles on the side are not very click-baity, they don't use absurd titles or conclusions to draw in a click. I would rate this article at a 5. There is bias, but bias does not mean fake.
