Election fraud witnesses provide testimony in Mich.
UPDATED 9:14 AM PT – Thursday, December 3, 2020
Voting irregularities in Michigan are under scrutiny again as the President’s legal team continues to present their case to the American public.
On Wednesday, state Rep. Matt Hall (R), chairman of the Michigan House Oversight Committee, led a hearing to listen to poll watchers and election workers testify to what they saw on November 3 as well as the days that followed.
In his introduction, Hall recognized that the state of Michigan needed to investigate these claims because pre-election mandates had left the state vulnerable to tabulation errors. During the 2018 midterms, Michigan voted to change a number of election procedures, including the implementation of ‘no excuse absentee’ voting.
More than 3 million voters used the new policy to register to vote by mail in 2020, but county clerks quickly reported tens-of-thousands of ballots were thrown out due to signature errors or voters no longer living in Michigan. This led the President’s legal team to question how many fraudulent ballots were not thrown out.
The President’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, questioned witnesses before the Michigan House Oversight Committee. This allowed lawmakers in the Wolverine State the opportunity to hear first hand stories of fraud and negligence.
One witness, Mellissa Carone, was contracted by Dominion voting machines to provide IT support in Detroit and told the committee how she was forced to watch as election officials added the same batches of ballots to the final tally over and over again.
The mishandling of ballots and the negligence of poll workers affected not only the presidential race, but several ballot measures within the state.
Guiliani ended the hearing by saying that the work undertaken by the President’s legal team was vital because “every dishonest vote deprives an honest voting person of their vote.”
