A contractor for Dominion Voting Systems said in a new sworn statement that she saw “fraudulent actions take place” at Detroit’s ballot-counting site on Election Day.
Melissa Carone, who was doing IT work at the TCF Center, worked from 6:15 a.m. on Nov. 3 to 4 a.m. the next day before returning for another several hours of work later on Nov. 4.
Carone said in an affidavit that she “witnessed nothing but fraudulent actions take place.”
Carone said she saw workers count some ballots four or five times and noticed that one of the counters had even counted a batch of ballots eight times.
“I confronted my manager, Nick Ikonomakis saying how big of a problem this was. Nick told me he didn’t want to hear that we have a big problem. He told me we are here to do assist with IT work, not to run their election,” Carone said.
Carone also swore she witnessed workers who received ballots that they couldn’t read or that had something spilled on them would get blank ballots and fill them out and, at times, change the vote and forge signatures.
“They were supposed to be filling them out exactly like the one they had received, but this was not the case at all. The workers would also sign the name of the person that the ballot belonged to-which is clearly illegal,” she said, adding that she contacted the FBI about what she saw.
Carone also claims to have witnessed election workers filling out ballots, fraudulently signing ballots, as well as the unloading of vans in an area of the Detroit election tabulation facility she was not permitted to inspect. Carone was on Fox Business with Lou Dobbs to explain part of what she witnessed.
Carone’s affidavit is now part of a lawsuit filed in Michigan by the Great Lakes Justice Center that seeks to void the election results due to irregularities.
“The main concern is, obviously, the clear fraud that occurred in the counting process of the votes in Wayne County, and the way votes were manufactured by workers that were there,” David Kallman, senior counsel with the center, told The Epoch Times.
David Fink, lead counsel for Detroit’s city, said in an emailed statement to The Epoch Times that the lawsuit raises “baseless allegations, trying to undermine confidence in a well-run election.”
“Like two previous lawsuits, this case is not based upon actual evidence of any election fraud or misconduct,” he added.
The suit contains affidavits from five poll workers and one employee of the City of Detroit who allege they witnessed election fraud during the votes’ processing and counting.
One of the additional claims in the suit is that defendants systematically processed and counted ballots from voters whose name failed to appear in either the Qualified Voter File (QVF) or in the supplemental sheets. When a voter’s name could not be found, the election worker assigned the ballot to a random name already in the QVF to a person who had not voted.
It is alleged that workers were repeatedly instructed to process and count votes without validating the votes in any way, including to backdate them if necessary.
The suit also mentions large shipments of ballots appearing in different ways and not secured with any of the chain of custody security that is required of ballots.
The “supervisor,” Nick Ikonomakis, is also the Vice-President of Development with Dominion Voter Systems. It appears Ikonomakis is also listed as an inventor for eight of Dominion’s Patents.
An opinion from the court is expected today or tomorrow.
