Things are happening quick on the election integrity front. The Trump legal team officially distanced itself from attorney Sidney Powell following a press conference in which she laid out her allegations against Dominion’s voting machines and interviews she gave in which she suggested the governor of Georgia—where two very contentious Senate runoff races are brewing—might be complicit in those allegations.
Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani told Lou Dobbs that the split came because his team and Powell were pursuing “two different theories.” The former New York City mayor told Dobbs that his team’s theory of the case, which he says covers four states currently and will soon cover two more, will hopefully end up at the Supreme Court, and that it’s focused on “misconduct [in] the election by state officials…[and] involved deprivation of constitutional rights for the president.”
He gave several examples: some parts of certain states allowed ballot fixing, others did not; some parts of certain states allowed for examination of ballots, other parts of the same state did not; and in Pennsylvania alone, there were an alleged 600k ballots put in “secretly by Democrats alone.”
“All you have to do is look at statistical data and you can see that the fraud was rampant and out of control,” Giuliani said.
He also noted that, despite press reports to the contrary, his team does have plenty of evidence in the form of 100 affidavits that the media is “too lazy” to read.
John Solomon of Just the News did read them, however, and laid out some of the more compelling examples of voter fraud using some of the affidavits Giuliani mentioned, noting that “many Democrats and their allies in the traditional media argue there is no evidence of systemic voting irregularities in the Nov. 3 election, a mountain of evidence has been amassed in private lawsuits alleging there was, in fact, significant and widespread voting misconduct.”
Here are just four of the 12 Solomon considers among the most compelling:
City of Detroit worker swears she witnessed thousands of ballots being falsified
Of all the sworn statements to date, career civil servant Jessy Jacob of Detroit provided the most sweeping claim of election fraud.
She stated in an affidavit she personally witnessed — and in some cases was instructed — to backdate thousands of absentee ballots the day after the election to make them appear legal even though they were not in the Qualified Voter File and had not arrived by the deadline. “I estimate that this was done to thousands of ballots,” her sworn statement says.
Jacob also described how in the weeks before Election Day she witnessed Detroit poll workers skipping voter ID checks and that she was “instructed by my supervisor to adjust the mailing date of these absentee ballot packages to be dated earlier than they were actually sent. The supervisor was making announcements for all workers to engage in this practice.”
Nearly three quarters of Detroit’s precincts had mismatched voting totals
Wayne County Board of Canvassing member William Hartmann, a Republican, says in a sworn declaration that Michigan’s largest county certified results knowing there were massive discrepancies between the approved voter files and the ballots cast and counted in Detroit.
“In my review of the results, I determined that approximately 71% of Detroit’s 134 absentee voter counting boards were left unbalanced and many unexplained,” his statement said.
Hartmann also raised concerns that birth dates in voter ID files “were altered in the pollbooks.”
Unfolded, pristine mail-in ballots flagged in Georgia
At least nine observers who watched an audit last week in Georgia’s razor-thin election have signed affidavits swearing they saw suspicious mail-in ballots, almost uniformly cast for Biden. The ballots were in pristine condition and had no creases on them, meaning the ballots had not been mailed in envelopes as required, according to the affidavits.
“It was pristine. There was a difference in the texture of the paper — it was as if they were intended for absentee use, but had not been used for that purpose,” Susan Voyles, a poll manager with two decades of experience, wrote in her affidavit about her time at a recount center in Fulton County. “There were no markings on the ballots to show where they had come from, or where they had been processed. I observed that the markings for the candidates on these ballots were unusually uniform, perhaps even with a ballot marking device.”
Los Angeles prosecutors uncover scheme in which thousands of fraudulent ballots cast
Two men were charged last week with 41 counts for allegedly submitting thousands of fraudulent voter registration applications on behalf of homeless people, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office .
Marcos Raul Arevalo, 34, and 53-year-old Carlos Antonio De Bourbon Montenegro, aka Mark Anthony Gonsalves, were each charged with one count of conspiracy to commit voter fraud, eight counts of voter fraud, four counts of procuring and offering a false or forged instrument and four misdemeanor counts.
As Solomon notes, there’s no telling at this point if the amount of fraud—should it be proven—is enough to flip vote tallies in individual states. And Giuliani acknowledged to Dobbs that a challenge will be getting cases before a court “that will be fair and listen to them.” Meanwhile, the clock continues to tick toward December 14, when the electors meet and cast their ballots for president and vice president.
