Arizona is another battleground state where election fraud was apparently rampant.
On November 30, the GOP chairwoman for Maricopa County, Linda Brickman, testified before the Arizona legislature testifying that she personally witnessed votes for President Donald Trump being counted as votes for his opponent, Democratic nominee Joe Biden when votes were input into Dominion Voting Systems machines.
Brickman, a veteran county elections worker, had already given her testimony in a sworn affidavit under penalty of perjury. In her testimony, she said that she and her partner worker, a Democrat, witnessed “more than once” Trump votes switch over to Biden votes when they were entering votes into the Dominion equipment from ballots that could not be read by machines.
She also testified that she was threatened by election supervisors at the Maricopa County Tabulation and Election Center (MCTEC) for openly talking about what she saw.
“I observed, with my Democratic partner, the preparation of a new ballot, since the original one was soiled, or wouldn’t go through the tabulators. I read her a Trump Republican ballot, and as soon as she entered it into the system, the ballot defaulted on the screen to a Biden Democratic ballot,” Brickman testified GOP Arizona State legislators on Monday.
She said that when she reported the problem to election supervisors, there were others in the same room who also commented that they too had “witnessed the same manipulation.”
“We were never told what, if any corrective action was taken,” Brickman added. “All I know is the next day, I was called outside the room that I was working in for signature verification by a supervisor who said, ‘I understand you caused some problems this week and you thought our machines were not working correctly.’
“I was told at that point in time that I could not discuss anything or talk about what was going on,” Brickman said.
“Many people were threatened,” Brickman told the lawmakers. “They were told that their voices would be suppressed, they would have to leave the room and not work there again. I’m here because I think this is our duty to speak the truth.” And God Bless her for having the courage to do speak out.
She testified that she was yelled at and even “reprimanded” by her own supervisor, who accused her of causing trouble and “bringing things up that I shouldn’t have.” If you see election irregularities, I think it’s your civic duty to speak out. The others must have been worried that their little voter fraud scheme would be exposed.
Brickman additionally mentioned that during testing and certification of the Dominion voting machines on Nov. 18, she refused to approve the certification of the Dominion system throughout a meeting with Secretary of State Katie Hobbs as a result of the machines had malfunctioned throughout the test, and were shut down and reset by Dominion staff instead of being corrected.
She added that no one was given any explanation concerning the errors. “We could see the machines, but we could not see or observe the software behind the machine to confirm what had really gone on,” she added.
Members of the Trump legal team had already pointed to witness testimony alleging that election results from Dominion Voting Systems are vulnerable to being manipulated, an allegation that the company has repeatedly denied. Does anyone believe that Dominion Voting Systems company would admit to any manipulation of voter data?
Brickman also testified that a number of voting machines displayed irregularities, including the intentional lowering of signature verification standards by the election supervisors who claimed it was done to make things “move more quickly” so that they could push through a higher amount of ballots. I don’t think there is a “move more quickly” section in Arizona election laws.
“Standards were lowered from approximately 15 points of similarities … reduced to a minimum of three, and then lowered to one, and ultimately none,” Brickman said, recalling that she was told to “just pass each signature verification through.”
“We were told, ‘Too many rejections have already been turned in … we need to move more quickly.’ This is not the way an election should be run. Where’s the integrity?” Brickman said. So, screw the republic, these election officials must have wanted to get to the bar quicker.
Brickman also testified that she saw signatures on ballot envelopes that were nothing like the name of the voter listed who was being let through by election supervisors.
“So the ones who signed the envelopes were not the actual voters, but these were allowed to go through with ‘Maricopa County verified’ stamped on the outside of each affidavit envelope,” she said. She also observed batches of envelopes with different signatures coming from the same handwriting.
“There were at least 30 ballots that I saw at one time, that were signed by the same handwriting but on different voters’ names,” Brickman testified. “When I asked if the county attorney would be alerted for possible fraud, I was told ‘no,’ that supervisors would take care of it.”
One of the most “egregious” problems, Brickman said, was the tossing out Trump votes as duplicated votes or “overvotes” because the voter both checked the bubble for Trump on the ballot and also wrote in the president’s name under the write-in candidate.
“This would continue on as an overvote, which means no vote was counted at all despite the policy having been changed to allow these overvotes. Supervisors contradicted their own policies where the [voter’s] intent was clear,” she said.
It sounds like fraudsters wrote in Trump’s name just to invalidate the votes. Democrats will stop at nothing to cheat.
“I am here today again not as an expert in the Dominion software but as a voter in Maricopa County who wants to hear and speak the truth even though myself and others have been suppressed to speak before you now,” Brickman told the hearing.
“There should be integrity,” she said.
