The Democrats have coined the phrase “The Big Lie” and the media has parroted it like good robots. If anyone questions the results of the 2020 presidential election, unlike any election before it, you can be removed from platforms and silenced.
This was not the case between 2016 – 2020 when talks of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign, buoyed by circumstantial evidence at best, were allowed to be spoken about and flourished, for some reason, it is verboten to talk about any concerns regarding the most recent presidential election.
But a new analysis of the Wisconsin election audit alleges that there could have been enough non-legal votes counted in the state to actually tip the state, The Federalist author Dan O’Donnell reported.
The Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC), the governmental body tasked with administering elections in Wisconsin, is comprised of six appointed commissioners, three from each political party, and a staff that reports to them. Critically, if the commissioners deadlock on an issue before them, no official action is taken and local authorities are left to interpret the recommendations of WEC’s staff.
As a result, the overwhelming majority of WEC’s decisions during the 2020 election cycle were essentially made by unelected, unappointed, and obviously left-leaning bureaucrats. Both they and the commissioners who oversee them were downright derelict in their duty to fairly and impartially supervise an election run by city and county clerks and poll workers who were not properly trained and did not receive accurate, lawful guidance.
An example is Wisconsin Statute 6.87(9) which says that “if a municipal clerk receives an absentee ballot with an improperly completed certificate or with no certificate, the clerk may return the ballot to the elector, inside the sealed envelope when an envelope is received, together with a new envelope if necessary, whenever time permits the elector to correct the defect and return the ballot.”
But in 2016 the WEC issued guidance that clerks could “cure” the information on their own, in violation of the law.
Auditors took a look at 14,710 ballots from around the state, other than the city of Madison, the most heavily democratic, which did not allow the auditors to examine their ballots.
But of the ballots that were examined 1,022 of the, or 6.9 percent, “had partial witness addresses because they did not have one or more components of a witness address, such as a street name, municipality, state, and zip code.” Fifteen, or 0.1 percent, “did not have a witness address in its entirety,” and 8, which is less than 0.1 percent, “did not have a witness signature,” and 3 “did not have a voter’s signature.”
And when those numbers, which are small, are expanded to the entire vote in the state, it could be assumed that “135,512 absentee ballot certificates only had a partial witness address, 2,002 did not have a witness address at all, 1,068 did not have a witness signature, and 401 did not have a voter signature. Biden defeated Trump in Wisconsin by just 20,682 votes,” The Federalist said.
“The Associated Press’ VoteCast survey estimates that 58 percent of Biden voters and 40 percent of Trump voters cast absentee ballots, either by mail or early in-person. Assuming that this trend held in Wisconsin and that none of these absentee ballots were disqualified by election officials, a rough estimate indicates many more Biden votes than Trump votes should legally not have been counted,” the author said.
“Even if you include Wisconsin’s 0.2 percent rejection rate for absentee ballots in 2020, all this is easy enough to put Biden’s lead well within a few-hundred-vote margin (we can only be approximate as we know the national but not Wisconsin portion of voting that was absentee). That margin flips narrowly depending on how many voters for each candidate actually voted absentee, the actual numbers of legally inadmissible ballots counted, and the ballot rejection rate,” he said.
There is also the issue of 45,665 of the 957,977 voters who registered to vote for the first time in Wisconsin in 2020 having voter registration names that did not match Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) driver’s license records.
These discrepancies could be as simple as registering to vote as “Bob” but having a driver’s license that says “Robert” but it is not possible to tell why the mismatches occurred because the DOT does not share information with the WEC.
“As a result, clerks are uncertain whether a non-match occurred because of only a slight difference in a given individual’s name, which may indicate little cause for concern, or a significant difference, which may indicate that an individual is attempting to register to vote by using another individual’s information,” the auditors said. “WEC’s staff indicated that no attempts were made to match the personally identifiable information provided by 13,800 individuals.”
“This means that 45,665 people voted after providing information on their new voter registration that did not match DOT records, and WEC — the agency responsible for stopping the very sort of fraud such mismatches may be strong evidence of — never bothered to even try to match information for 13,800 of them,” The Federalist said.
“Statutes require individuals who register online to vote to authorize WEC to obtain from DOT electronic copies of the signatures they provided when they obtained driver’s licenses or state identification cards,” the auditors said. “Statutes require WEC to obtain these signatures. However, we found that WEC’s most-recent agreement with DOT explicitly did not include the provision of these signatures.”
“We found that the names and dates of birth of the individuals associated with 24 of the 70 voter registration records that we identified by using our criteria matched similar information in 24 other records,” the audit said, and indicated that four of the 24 may have voted two times by absentee ballot.
It found that eight felons voted and “11 individuals who died before November 3, 2020, likely voted in the General Election.”
The MacIver Institute said:
WEC violated state law by not issuing rules on how to train special voting deputies or election inspections.
WEC told clerks they could go home on Election night and return the next day to finish counting, even though that is illegal.
WEC told clerks they could relocate polling places within 30 days of the election, even though that is illegal.
WEC failed to include current state law in its administrative rules on how to train municipal election workers. The rules have not been updated since 2016.
WEC violated state law by not reporting the error rates for electronic voting equipment used in the Nov. 2020 election.
WEC also turned a blind eye to the rampant abuse of indefinite confinement by voters who used a false declaration to avoid showing a photo ID to vote. In 2020, a whopping 169,901 people declared themselves indefinitely confined for the first time (up from 50,000 total indefinitely confined voters the year before); 48,554 of those newly indefinitely confined voters did not place a valid ID on file with their local clerk and thus were able to get around the state’s Voter ID law.
While this would obviously raise the possibility of massive fraud, WEC never bothered to look into whether any of these 48,554 voters were who they said they were.
