The House Freedom Caucus of North Carolina released the following statement as an update to their election investigation.
According to NC House Rep. Keith Kidwell’s office:
This week, members of the House Freedom Caucus met with employees of Elections Systems & Software, a company based in Omaha, with large ties to the state of North Carolina. In the 2020 elections, 94 out of 100 counties used ES&S systems to conduct voting. The Freedom Caucus learned that ES&S uses a series of 3 machines, most counties using their DS200 model, to count ballots.
The Caucus found that the machines do not host modems that are hackable, nor is any of the software programmed to recognize any foreign hardware or physical tampering. The machines themselves have been build to be extremely secure. Any tampering possible would be credited to the precincts themselves. On Wednesday, the Freedom Caucus met to discuss these findings in front of Brian Neesby, Information Officer, and Patrick Gannon, Legal Counsel, both with the North Carolina State Board of Elections.
The Caucus disclosed to these NCSBE representatives that a subpoena will be ordered with the intention to visit a local precinct, at random, to investigate whether or not specific machines are being tampered with.
The House Freedom Caucus has cleared any liabilities with ES&S and will continue further investigating the NCSBE to identify potential compromises in the security of our state’s elections systems. Chairman of the Caucus, Representative Kidwell said, “I am confident the issue is not with the machines. The state is doing it’s job and the equipment is secure. The issue overall is with our Board of Election’s transparency.” Updates in the coming weeks are to follow.
Last week I reported on the breaking news of the audit in North Carolina, a state that Trump had won:
A group of North Carolina Republican lawmakers from the General Assembly want the State Board of Elections (SBOE) to give them some answers about the machines used to tabulate votes. The lawmakers want the machines opened and allow their own people investigate what happened in the 2020 Presidential election.
NC Rep. Jeff McNeely (Iredell) said about the SBOE, “We are just trying to see if there are any legs to the rumors we hear about ballots and machines, we want to know if there is anything that could have been changed by the machines, we gave them a deadline to get back to us.”
McNeely is a member of the NC House Freedom Caucus and spoke to The Gateway Pundit on Friday about his concerns with the 2020 Presidential election.
“I believe the information in what we call the ‘hand to eye audits’ needs to be public, and we need to make sure those tallies match what the machines came up with, currently they are not public and they should be,” McNeely said, asserting that North Carolina is a paper ballot state already, and if there was any major fraud it would show up with the ballot harvesting.
“We know that Mark Zuckerberg gave 5-6 Million dollars to counties in North Carolina, but we don’t have an accounting on that. We are working on a bill that would make it law to evenly distribute that money to our 100 counties. But as it is now, we do not know where that money went or what it went for,” McNeely said.
When asked if he was aware of strange food trucks at polling places during early voting and on election day, McNeely said yes, he had gotten the information that trucks were present in places like the Wake County polling area, North Carolina’s largest county.
” We always have the same counties who just can’t seem to get it together for elections. We have to make our elections bulletproof. I want penalties for cheating to go up to a Class H if not higher. We want to deter cheating. The problem, we can only take so big of the bite at this apple, so this is a shot across the bow and we need to clean the house,” he said.
SECOND NORTH CAROLINA HOUSE FREEDOM CAUCUS MEMBER
Rep. Keith Kidwell (Beaufort, Craven) said in a released statement on Facebook, “We put the hard question to these guys about what is going on with the machines. We asked the SBOE to give us access to the three machines, and what kinds of modems they have. We want our own technicians to examine and they are going to get back to us,” Kidwell, an accountant, is looking for information on where votes changed.
