Michigan Police Inquiry Reveals National Pattern of Voting Machine Fraud Conspiracies
Attempts to inappropriately access voting machines have spurred investigations and sparked concern in states across the country, including Colorado, Pennsylvania and Georgia.
In Michigan, state attorney general Dana Nessel issued a petition filed Aug. 5 based on the findings of a state police investigation revealing that her likely Republican opponent, Matthew DePerno, was “one of the prime instigators” of a conspiracy to persuade Michigan clerks to allow unauthorized access to voting machines, reports the Washington Post. According to the filing, others involved included a state representative and Barry County, Sheriff Dar Leaf.
The petition says tabulators were taken to hotel rooms and Airbnb rentals in Oakland County, where a group of four men “broke into” the tabulators and performed “tests” on them. The petition says that DePerno was in a hotel room during some testing. The situation in Michigan is similar in that allegedly unofficial and unauthorized investigators sought evidence of fraud by gaining access to voting equipment. Some of those named in the Michigan case has been connected to cases elsewhere. In states across the country, including Colorado, Pennsylvania and Georgia, attempts to inappropriately access voting machines have spurred investigations and sparked concern among election authorities that the breaches could compromise the integrity of the process and undermine confidence in the vote.
