There are four candidates who are paying Dominion Voting $10,000 each for their work on the recount of the Colorado primaries in El Paso County, due to some ridiculous numbers that came out. That includes a woman who outperformed the polls by 35% and another candidate that had her race called on election night when she had 16,000 votes, but was declared the loser the next day with 10,000 votes with no explanation. This does not inspire confidence in the voting system.
The new petition requests that two additional candidates have their races recounted also since the fee has been paid four times already. They have also requested that the recount be handled by the Secretary if State’s office and not by the county clerk.
In the petition’s Statement of Facts, they make reference to a significant admission by CISA, the federal agency overseeing election infrastructure. The reference was to the CISA advisory regarding J. Alex Halderman’s still sealed report out of Georgia.
In the CISA advisory, they recommend mitigation steps including “conducting rigorous post-election tabulation audits of the human-readable portions of the physical ballots and paper records, to include reviewing ballot chain of custody and conduction voter/ballot reconciliation procedures.” None of these are being followed. Rather, the recount is using the same vulnerable machines addressed in the advisory.
The last line is key:
“Halderman further opined that the failures include the ability to defeat ALL state safety procedures, including logic and accuracy testing and risk limiting audits.”
An expert who was afforded unprecedented access to these machines claiming that the very Logic and Accuracy Test that just yielded a 53% adjudication rate claims that the machines can circumvent the L&A testing? What could go wrong!
Flashback: Halderman was the same expert who was heralded as a hero by election fraud deniers when he “debunked” the Antrim County report from Bailey v. Antrim County. However, using his own logic in that instance raised more questions about a race in Dekalb Co, Georgia with strikingly similar attributes.
Also developing in El Paso, we have a report from Ashe in America’s blog that an election judge has been caught on camera filling out not just recount batch labels, but also the original count. In the video below, you can see the man fill out the top sticker, which is for the June 28th primary, as well as the bottom sticker, which is for the ongoing recount.
