Arizona election fight near critical stage as shredded ballots found in dumpster
By TONY MOBILIFONITIS
THE stench of corruption around Arizona’s election audit has become thicker, with a Purple Heart army veteran and two friends reportedly facing charges for finding and photographing bags full of shredded election ballots behind the Maricopa County Tabulation Center on Saturday. The veteran has been identified only as Earl S. but has appeared on videos with bags of still clearly identifiable ballots.
Patriotic Arizona Republicans are alarmed over the possible arrest of the veteran by the State Attorney General. They also want answers from the state’s senators who apparently have gone silent for 10 days over their planned forensic audit of 2.1 million ballots. The patriots are calling for forensics expert Jovan Pulitzer to be put on the auditing job as he has exclusive expertise in the use of kinematic artifact detection technology that tracks every microscopic encounter of a ballot as it moves through the system.
Their other major issue is the “safe harbor rule” for elections, which ended on February 1 and may have allowed machines to reprogrammed, updated or altered and ballot images altered or deleted without breaking the law. Ballots are supposed to be held for 21 months.
YouTube vlogger Doug TenNaple, a noted animator, writer, cartoonist, video game designer, and comic book artist, says Maricopa County has been caught and is now in panic mode, trying to find excuses to sow doubts about the forensic audit. He noted that two dumpsters had been left outside an open bay at the tabulation center.
“This is what you do to try to cause doubt in the provenance – the chain of custody of the votes. So, this picture is made for you to doubt the outcome of the audit. They’re setting up excuses and I’m telling you we caught them. That’s why I want to see all the security footage and find out who ordered the dumpsters.”
TenNaple went on to refer to a letter from the County Recorder Stephen Richer, notifying him of a “security breach” involving his vote. Strangely, such problems did not show up in the squeaky-clean audit ordered by the county.
Coincidentally on the day of the dumpster dive there was also a big fire in a chicken shed on one of the poultry farms run by Maricopa County supervisor Clint Hickman. Some people went online to suggest the fire might have been fueled by bad ballots, although we have no evidence of that. More likely it was the 165,000 chickens that went up in smoke. What is truly suspicious is that the dumpster discovery has come just a few days before the State Senate’s forensic audit of the 2.1 million ballots and the Dominion election machinery used in the election.
Jim Hoft’s Gateway Pundit reported on Monday: “Per our source on the ground in the county, yesterday an individual went by the Maricopa County tabulation and election center and found doors wide open with seeming uninhibited access to the facility. Today some other interested individuals in the county stopped by the same facility and found huge piles of ballots in the dumpster outside the facility.”
And the story gets worse. Adding fuel to the fire, so to speak, is the accusation by Hoft that Maricopa County Board of Supervisors lied about the two firms they recently appointed to do their own election “audit”. Cairns News reported on what looked like a charade, with the county and local news media dutifully making a big scene about their “certified auditors” and their fine work.
The audits gave the machines and software a clean bill of health, finding they weren’t connected to the internet during the election, weren’t hacked or infected with any malicious software, and hadn’t switched any votes during the counting of ballots.
Firstly, the “auditors” were found to have historical connections with Dominion, whose equipment they were supposedly checking for potential malfunctions or unlawful use. And the conflicts of interest reach higher into the EAC itself. Gateway Pundit reported the agency’s CIO worked for Dominion Voting Systems for a decade.
Hoft said the audit firms weren’t certified with the US Election Assistance Commission, contrary to public announcements made by the county, but within hours of his website’s report, the EAC in Washington DC had certified the two auditing firms. “We have no idea what information the governing body used to make this change,” Hoft wrote.
“One of the firms, Pro V&V, was also selected by Georgia’s corrupt Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger for a recent sham audit there,” said Hoft. “Secretary of State Raffensperger used Dominion-linked Pro V&V, an Alabama-based testing laboratory, to do the Georgia audit of the Dominion machines.”
Hoft says Pro V&V has only three company contracts and has been in business since 2011. Company president of Jack Cobb has performed audits for Dominion previously – one in the Philippines in 2019, where he referred to himself as the ‘Laboratory Director’. Pro V&V once had a certificate of accreditation from the EAC but it expired in 2017. No recent accreditation was noted on its website.
SLI Compliance on its website claims it was accredited by the EAC but Gateway Pundit could find no support for this or if this was current. But both entities were used by Dominion voting systems for their recent audits. Again, Gateway Pundit pointed out the embarrassing facts “missed” by the local mainstream media and in particular Jeremy Duda, the associate editor of the Arizona Mirror.
Duda has been running the standard media narrative on election fraud. “They [the county] sought to conduct an audit of the election in response to the baseless fraud allegations and conspiracy theories espoused by former President Donald Trump and many of his supporters, including some Senate Republicans, after President Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election,” Duda wrote recently in a report on the state Senate’s audit.
Mr Duda’s comments are complete doo doo. But we understand. Far be it for a capital city associate editor to think independently of the approved, must-be-repeated US media propaganda narrative that there’s “no evidence” of fraud. Is there still no evidence of fraud now that thousands of votes have been shredded, Mr Duda. We await your next update.
For months the MCBS have blocked and delayed any independent audit as called for by the Arizona Senate. As we’ve reported previously, after being subpoenaed by the Arizona Senate and then suing the Senate to prevent a Senate audit of their 2020 election results, the Board of Supervisors agreed to have an audit if they could pick the auditors.
MCBS tried every legal trick to stop a proper forensic audit but faced another blow when a superior court recently ruled that the state legislature indeed has power to subpoena the 2.1 million ballots and tabulation machinery.
Mr Duda disingenuously claims “no evidence of fraud”, but early investigations in Arizona last December alleged 36,400 votes by illegal aliens (number registered to vote is actually 23,000 according to Secretary of State’s office with about half of those voting); 22,903 completed mail-in ballots received the day before the ballots were mailed; 2000 voters registered to a vacant lot; 150,000 voters registered after the voter registration deadline; 103,000 adjudicated ballots processed without a Republican Party observer present; and 50,000 votes loaded before the opening of polls. This is what Arizona’s establishment media calls “no evidence” and it’s a similar story in all the key “battleground states” that usually decide an election.
There is also extensive statistical evidence pointing to fraud in the key states, there are enormous vote count discrepancies pointing to fraud, such as in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, where the certified result showed votes cast exceeded numbers of individuals who voted by an astonishing 120,966. There’s also eyewitness affidavits and surveillance camera evidence of election irregularities and thousands of pages of internet activity logs showing connections between offshore IP addresses and election sites on and around election day, November 3.
Another major piece of evidence uncovered by Allied Security Operations Group of Dallas, Texas, is the vast number of ballot errors in counting across the key states. “The system intentionally generates an enormously high number of ballot errors. The electronic ballots are then transferred for adjudication. The intentional errors lead to bulk adjudication of ballots with no oversight, no transparency, and no audit trail. This leads to voter or election fraud. Based on our study, we conclude that The Dominion Voting System should not be used in Michigan. We further conclude that the results of Antrim County should not have been certified,” ASOG found.
ASOG says the allowable election error rate established by the Federal Election Commission guidelines is of 1 in 250,000 ballots (.0008%) but investigators observed an error rate of 68.05%. “This demonstrated a significant and fatal error in security and election integrity,” they reported. Joe Biden allegedly won the state of Georgia by fewer than 12,000 votes, and Arizona by about 10,000.
A further shocking discrepancy is in Georgia, where chain of custody for more than 404,690 absentee votes has still not been established, four months after the election. That figure represents 67.5 percent of the estimated 600,000 “absentee vote by mail ballots” deposited in 300 drop boxes and delivered to county registrars and counted in Georgia’s 2020 presidential election.
As noted by independent news outlet The Michigan Star: “The 2020 presidential election outcome in Georgia was decided by fewer than 12,000 votes – about three percent of the 404,000 absentee vote by mail ballots deposited in drop boxes and delivered to county registrars where they were counted.”
The Star noted that Fulton County was one of 35 “scofflaw” (law-flouting) counties in Georgia that had failed to comply with the Georgia Open Records Law and provide The Star News with absentee ballot drop box transfer forms they were required to maintain under the Emergency Rule passed by the Georgia State Election Board in July of 2020.
