The Federal Election Commission allows a maximum error rate of just 0.0008% for computerized voting machines. So, a forensic audit of the presidential vote tally by Dominion Voting Systems software in Antrim County, Mich., showing more than a 68% error rate, is a big problem.
Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani quickly drew attention to the results of the audit, saying “The findings in Antrim County, where the error rate was a mind-blowing 68%, the ballot rejection rate was 82%, and software security records and adjudication files were missing, in violation of state and federal laws, are nothing short of mind-blowing,” Giuliani said in a release. “The evidence of fraud is indisputable.”
A lawsuit by country resident William Bailey against Antrim County, allowed Allied Security to take forensic images of the county’s 22 tabulators and review other election-related materials. The results of that audit were released on Monday and showed a more than 68% error rate, with auditors also claiming the system intentionally creates the errors so the machine can have them “adjudicated”—allowing individuals to change the result.”
“We conclude that the Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results,” read the audit report prepared by Allied Security Operations Group. “The system intentionally generates an enormously high number of ballot errors. The electronic ballots are then transferred for adjudication. The intentional errors lead to bulk adjudication of ballots with no oversight, no transparency, and no audit trail.”
Tuesday morning Donald Trump took to Twitter to address the findings. “Tremendous problems being found with voting machines. They are so far off it is ridiculous. Able to take a landslide victory and reduce it to a tight loss. This is not what the USA is all about. Law enforcement shielding machines. DO NOT TAMPER, a crime. Much more to come!” Trump said and continued in a follow-up tweet, saying “68% error rate in Michigan Voting Machines. Should be, by law, a tiny percentage of one percent. Did Michigan Secretary of State break the law? Stay tuned!”
“Much more to come” and “stay tuned;” it sounds like Trump feels the audit findings in Michigan may be the first of many dominoes or “Dominions” to fall.
