Votes in Democrat stronghold may have been counted up to 6 times.
There’s something fishy going on in Michigan, where a full one-third of precincts in Wayne County – which includes Detroit – were unable to have ballots counted due to discrepancies with ballot counts.
And one person reports single ballots being counted as many as six times.
On Wednesday, a federal judge halted Michigan’s recount after two days of ballot counting, saying there’s not a legitimate reason to continue. After all, Green Party candidate Jill Stein, who asked for the recount – suggesting the possibility of vote fraud and stating, “We must have a system we can be confident in” – never even had a chance of winning with just 1 percent of the vote.
But the judge’s decision came just after news reports began surfacing of possible vote fraud.
The worst of the problems were in Wayne County, Michigan’s largest county, where 66 percent of voters cast their ballots for Hillary Clinton and just 29 percent for Donald Trump.
There was such a problem, the Detroit News reported, “[O]fficials couldn’t reconcile vote totals for 610 of 1,680 precincts during a countywide canvass of vote results late last month.”
The Detroit paper continued, “Most of those are in heavily Democratic Detroit, where the number of ballots in precinct poll books did not match those of voting machine printout reports in 59 percent of precincts, 392 of 662.”
Michigan’s state law says if a precinct’s poll books don’t match its ballots, then the original election results must stand.
“It’s not good,” Detroit Elections Director Daniel Baxter told the Detroit News Tuesday, before the judge halted the recount.
“He blamed the discrepancies on the city’s decade-old voting machines, saying 87 optical scanners broke on Election Day,” the newspaper reported. “Many jammed when voters fed ballots into scanners, which can result in erroneous vote counts if ballots are inserted multiple times. Poll workers are supposed to adjust counters to reflect a single vote but in many cases failed to do so, causing the discrepancies, Baxter said. …
“County reports obtained by The Detroit News, though, indicate canvassers were provided no explanation for why the numbers didn’t add up in those precincts. They certified the results of the election anyway.”
On Election Day, Trump won Michigan by 10,704 votes. The Detroit News noted that Clinton’s best hope of eliminating Trump’s margin was in finding undocumented ballots in Wayne County.
“If I were looking for 10,000 votes, the first place I’d look is Wayne County,” Democrat activist Ernest Johnson said.
As for other counties, none had as many issues as Wayne County, but 13 precincts in Genesee County weren’t balanced. At least half of them were in Flint, a Democrat stronghold.
As for voting machine issues, Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft isn’t buying Baxter’s explanation.
Once they started the Michigan recount in earnest, and knowing he would be exposed, the Detroit City Clerk Daniel Baxter all of a sudden started claiming that the optical scanners which read the paper ballots did not work the day of the election. Baxter blamed the discrepancies on decade-old voting machines. That is his cover story. Nothing like this was mentioned until he realized their voting fraud scheme would be detected.
Baxter’s claim is that, when trying to push the ballots through the readers, the ballots would be stuck and they’d have to push them through again thus ‘ACCIDENTALLY’ resulting in a double count. He says the poll workers sometimes ‘FORGET’ to adjust the machine count and instead let the ballot count twice.
Of course, that’s COMPLETELY BULLSH-T.
In fact, some votes may have been counted as many as six times.
Ken Crider, a 2014 Republican candidate for District 19 of the Michigan House of Representatives, said he watched the recount effort in Cobo Hall in Detroit with his wife, Penny. In a Facebook post Tuesday, he claimed to have witnessed some serious ballot discrepancies.
MUST READ! Penny Crider and I just got back from helping watch the recount at Cobo Hall in Detroit. On Nov. 8th (Election Day) the election officials at 8:00 p.m. shut down the polls. They then reconciled the differences from the machine count and the voter count on the computer. At this point, a Metal tag/seal with a serial number is put on the box and the box was taken away.
Penny’s precinct, Detroit Precinct #152 had an unbroken seal and everything looked proper. The tag on the box said 306 and the book said 306 and the ticket said 306, so there should be 306 paper ballots on the box, right. Well when they pulled out the ballots the stack seemed short and when they finished separating the two page ballot to count the Presidential page only guess how many ballots were in the box? 304 no, 299 nope, 200 nada, how about 100 wrong again. There were only exactly 50 paper ballots in a locked sealed box that again was supposed to have 306. HMMMM.
Oh I forgot to add, since there was a discrepancy in the two numbers, the original count stands.
One more thing my precinct (sorry I forgot the number), had 525 votes on the book, tag and ticket and we counted 525 ballots the election official was praising the Lord “Hallelujah we have a countable precinct” Jill Stein had three (3) votes.
Hoft declared, “It looks like Detroit counts each vote more than SIX TIMES! No wonder they get such high turnout rates!”
In August, WND reported when an explosive undercover video showed how startlingly simple it was for anyone to commit voter fraud in Michigan – even when the voter provided no I.D. and falsely assumed the identity of a well-known columnist.
The undercover footage was released by Project Veritas founder and pioneering investigative reporter James O’Keefe, who visited a polling location in the Detroit suburb of Birmingham.
O’Keefe requested a ballot for Detroit Free Press columnist Brian Dickerson. At the location, workers requested O’Keefe’s name, address and driver’s license.
“Oh, you do need a license?” O’Keefe asks. “I don’t actually have my wallet with me. I lost it over the weekend hunting. My license fell out of my pocket.”
He added, “I didn’t know I needed an I.D.”
“You do,” said the poll worker, who asked, “What’s your address?”
O’Keefe obviously provided an incorrect address, and the poll worker was puzzled because O’Keefe said he lived on “Marietta” rather than “Henrietta.”
The female poll worker called Birmingham, Michigan, city clerk Laura Pierce for instructions on what to do about a voter with no I.D.
The worker told O’Keefe: “So you have to fill out the front, and do the back. And then you can vote.”
“Do I need to get an I.D.?” he asks.
“No, vote,” she says, instructing him to simply sign an affidavit on the back “saying you are who you say you are.”
O’Keefe asks her: “If I don’t have a license, how do you guys know I am who I say I am?”
He then told the poll worker he is Detroit Free Press columnist Brian Dickerson.
She appeared skeptical as she asked, “You’re not, you’re Brian Dickerson?”
The worker explained, “So, if you come in and vote as Brian Dickerson, and another Brian Dickerson comes in, they can’t vote.”
Still doubtful, she asked, “Are you his son?”
“No, no, it’s Brian,” O’Keefe insisted.
After he left the polling place, O’Keefe expressed his disbelief: “She kinda knew who Brian was, and she didn’t care. So that was interesting.”
In his next stop, O’Keefe dropped by the office of city clerk Laura Pierce, and he showed Pierce the footage of the polling location offering him a ballot for Brian Dickerson.
“You told her to vote, and this is the guy,” O’Keefe tells Pierce, pointing to the real Brian Dickerson. “I’m not that person.”
“Right, you aren’t,” she said. “And she knows you are not that person.”
As O’Keefe continues to explain, Pierce interrupts: “Excuse me, why are you recording this?”
She continued, “It’s election law. If you do not have a driver’s license with you, you can turn over the affidavit and complete the affidavit.”
Pierce claimed the incident wasn’t a case of voter fraud because “you did not get to the computer yet.”
The state’s system works, she insisted, adding, “I’m doing what I’m told.”
On Wednesday evening, Michigan’s House of Representatives passed a strict voter I.D. bill that would require voters who don’t show identification to bring their I.D. to the local clerk’s office within 10 days of casting their ballots.
As WND reported, during the 2012 election, Project Veritas conducted a series of investigations in more than a dozen states “demonstrating the ease with which election fraud can be committed and legitimate voters can be disenfranchised.”
