Florida Elections Worker: "I Was Fired For Witnessing Possible Absentee Ballot Fraud"

Tyler Durden's picture

Broward County, Florida, home of the now infamous "hanging chad" fiasco during the 2000 showdown between George Bush and Al Gore, may be on the verge of yet another controversial election cycle.  Historically a democrat stronghold, Broward County always comes under extra scrutiny during presidential elections as it can single-highhandedly swing the entire state of Florida in one direction or another. 

Per a new report from NewsMax, the 2016 election cycle may be among the most controversial yet as a temporary worker for the Broward County Supervisor of Elections office has been fired after reporting what she thought to be "election fraud."  In a sworn affidavit presented to the Florida State Attorney General, this temporary worker claims that she witnessed "four Supervisor of Elections employees sitting at the same table actively filling out election ballots."  Further, according to the affidavit, each of the four workers "had a stack of blank ballots to the right of them … and a stack of completed ballots to their left."

A temporary worker for the Broward County Supervisor of Elections Office in Florida has alleged in a sworn affidavit obtained by Newsmax that she was fired this week after witnessing possible absentee ballot fraud by office workers.

 

Nichols is general counsel for the Broward Republican Executive Committee, which learned of the allegations on Thursday. He interviewed the former employee and reported the matter that day to the state attorney.

 

"Our goal is to assure that all of the election rules are properly followed," he told Newsmax. "We want a fair election for everyone."

 

According to the affidavit, the former employee alleged that on Monday about 8:30 p.m. she had been told to take a stack of absentee ballot forms to what is known as the Pitney-Bowes Room at the Supervisor of Elections (SOE) office in Lauderhill, Fla.

 

Through the locked door's window, she saw four workers sitting at a table in the room with "stacks of documents and writing something," according to the affidavit.

 

"I could see the four SOE employees sitting at the same table actively filling out election ballots," she said in the affidavit. Each worker "had a stack of blank ballots to the right of them … and a stack of completed ballots to their left."

 

Every completed stack contained "perhaps a dozen" ballots, she claimed.

 

The four workers also were "using the same black pens … that the SOE supplies to voters at polling places.

 

"I was then told to leave the room by one of the employees at the table," she said in the affidavit.

 

The former employee said that she did not initially report what she had seen "to anyone at the SOE because of fear of retaliation."

Voter Twice

 

Of course, as usual, we're supposed to believe that there is absolutely nothing unusual about a group of poll workers, in a heavily democratic county, sitting in a back room filling out blank ballots.  No, apparently this is just another attempt to "criminalize behavior that is normal," as Donna Brazile would say.

According to Brenda Snipes, the Broward County Supervisor of Elections, what this terminated employee witnessed was workers simply transcribing faxed paper ballots from the men and women of our armed forces from overseas.  According to Snipes, those faxed ballots are a different size than regular ballots and thus have to be converted to the official forms in order to be counted.

In a preliminary memorandum provided to Newsmax late Friday, Assistant State Attorney Timothy Donnelly said that office personnel met with Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes earlier Friday at her office.

 

Donnelly is head of the office's special prosecutions and public corruption unit.

 

Snipes told investigators that the former employee most likely observed the four SOE workers filling out duplicates of faxed originals from military personnel.

 

Under Florida law, Snipes said that "true duplicate" copies of physically damaged vote-by-mail ballots can be made by SOE personnel.

 

"Since the ballots are on fax paper and not the same size as the ballots that are tabulated by the machines, the statue allows a duplicate ballot to be made so that it can be tabulated by the automated machines," Donnelly wrote.

 

"The faxed ballots are preserved and kept available for inspection."

 

Donnelly concluded that "it appears preliminarily that [the former employee] accurately reported the conduct that she observed at the Elections Office, but that there is nothing illegal or improper about the conduct."

Of course, there is just one small issue with that explanation as the sworn testimony of the terminated employee specifically notes that the completed and blank ballots were the same size.  Moreover, if this was all just a simple misunderstanding then why was the whistle blower fired? 

His memorandum did not speak to the woman's alleged termination.

 

However, after returning from lunch about 12:30 p.m. the following day, the woman alleged that she was "met by a uniformed security guard at the SOE entrance and told that I had been terminated.

 

"I was given no explanation for this action," the former employee said.

 

Nichols told Newsmax that while he accepted Donnelly's preliminary findings, he "absolutely" had concerns about them.

 

"The witnesses' recollection was that all of the documents on the table were the same size," he said. "The affidavit says that all of the documents were the same size.

 

"The explanation that they were creating duplicates from faxes, and that the faxes were on different-sized papers, does not comport with what this person saw.

 

"What Dr. Snipes says does not seem to match what is contained in the affidavit," Nichols told Newsmax, "but, again, that's up to the State Attorney's office to figure out."

With reports like these flowing in from all over the country and the latest polls indicating extremely tight races in multiple important swing states, Tuesday night is looking to be a very interesting evening.

FBI or US Military needs to get involved at this point. Democrats are tossing everything aside and going for fraud in the open. In your face.

Someone posted a link to this story on another thread last night.  I went looking for a confirming story and ran a search on "Chelsey Marie Smith" in FLA (she's the name on the affadavit).  Interestingly, there's a 2014 story about a Chelsey Marie Smith being charged with heroin trafficking.

I don't doubt for a second that election shenanigans are happening, but the reliability of this particular witness is open to question.

Bernie Sanders Abandons Clinton in Final Week

Supporters have balked at a Sanders who supports Hillary Clinton, as she embodies the corruption and corporate influences that have transformed democracy in this country into an oligarchy. Sanders campaign events on behalf of Clinton have received poor attendance from supporters, especially in comparison to the rallies he held during his own campaign.

Hillary and the DNC screwed Bernie supporters badly. I am surprised if any support the crooked Clinton who is 100% DC Establishment.

Francis - at minimum wage, I'm sure the temporary election worker title is probably not going to attract the cream of the crop.  That in and of itself is a REAL problem.   If she is, in fact, a heroin dealing criminal, is that who you want handling yoru ballots?  If she could get employed, how many of Rober Creamers goons got in?  Either way, she should be THANKED for drawing attention to the fraud.

Erk,

I hope that her affadavit is legit.

I hope that it is somehow prosecuted.

I hope that those responsible are held accountable.

I'm just pointing out that her credibility as a witness will be questioned in such a process.

she was lucky.

I would rather be fired for almost seeing too much than be disappeared after Hillary is elected for knowing too much.

Its a done deal, they will install her in office. The decision was made in 2008. They had to put Obama in there first because the Negros were getting too uppity. The only question is how many or the people who helped rig it will disappear or 'commit suicide' after she is in because they know too much.

So a heroin user can't be trusted, but a cocaine user is fit to be President, only in America.

Just like the reliability of Trumps accusers.
Just like the reliability of DWS's resignation from her position because she knew she had been caught and could not deny the email evidence.
Just like the reliability of eventual denial of email veracity as the avalanche grew and the Democrats finally responded "Reliably Normal" for their parties fraudulent actions and did indeed deny them.
Just as the Democrats reliably placed blame on someone else for their actions.
Just as Democrats reliably run to their safe space when confronted with truth.
Just as Democrats reliably refuse to offer a sincere apology without caveats. NEVER, NEVER, NEVER without caveats. "If I have offended someone..."
Just as reliably the MSM comes riding on a white horse to rescue them with lies or outright total blackout on coverage.
Just as the Democrat party reliably shows up here to make retarded statements because no one goes to their sites as they are reliable failures.
And. All Democrats are reliably PERSECUTED. Ask Donna Brazziere.

you are correct. this is amazing in a very bad way.

as long as the MSM is controlling the herd much is lost.

As bizarre as this may sound, the world is facing a leftist coup. But not leftist in the old sense...communism etc. Hell, Putin is the big enemy. We are talking a Zionist leftist coup. Where the oh so clever banker und newspaper owners think they can hookwink the gullible kumbayah 'progressives' and also keep the military industrial complex happy.

These people see themselves as benevolent masters of the universe. Nodoby should realize they are being enslaved as long as they are on top of the food chain.

Uncle Adolf really royally fucked it up for the white race. To squander the golden opportunity he had to fix things forever, and he just squandered it. Only if he did not attack Russia.

The USSR was controlled by the zionists at the time. Hitler's problem was not letting go of the 1000 year old Germanic-Slav grudge

He had no choice. The Russians were forward staging armour and a massive expeditionary force near her borders preparing to push into Germany.

Get your facts straight.

The left WAS ALWAYS ZIONIST in nature, going back to the christianization of Europe as "socialist" christanity,derived from judaism set to replace family/tribe values. And the "old sense...communism" was created and brought upon tzarist Russia by none others than hipsters jews from the 1900: Lenin, Trotsky, etc whom embraced other jew's (Marx) rotten ideology.

And you can see that ALWAYS, the socialism was imposed by force and illegal means by a minority

Russia, amongst many other nations need to get involved as independent observers of the US election. The US sure as shit is not capable of policing the election itself. But it's a bit late now. The US will get what it deserves. More corruption than ever before.

sinbad2's picture

The US, and a couple of other dictatorships are the only countries that don't allow independent observers, even Russia invited independent observers to view the Crimean election. Of course the US refused to send observers, and then said the referendum was fixed.

The corruption is so thick in America you are all going to drown in it.

I think you know why having the FBI involved would be a bad thing at this point.

The mere fact that faxed ballots are deemed valid seems wrong to me.

Urban Redneck's picture

Why don't they have a plain paper fax machine that prints on 8.5x11?

There's a simple way clear things up (assuming the Attorney General's office isn't part of a cover up).

The number of fax-in ballots should match the number of ballots created by BoE employees, and the votes on those faxed ballots should match votes on the ballots created by BoE employees.

IF the BoE mixed in the ballots they created in with other ballots, and is no longer able produce the evidence of their innocence, then the BoE employees should be charged with both CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE and CONSPIRACY TO COMMIT VOTER FRAUD. Any half witted prosecutor can obtain a conviction for negligence and conspiracy against the average .gov employee regardless of their guilt or innocence... if they wanted too, it's actually easier than obtaining an indictment of a proverbial ham sammich.

Let me just inject something here .. changing the code to obtain a false result is not complicated at all.  It normally would be impossible to detect it without access to the source code, and the code can be easily made complex enough so even an expert WITH access to the source code would easily miss it without thorough analysis.

In fact, I would urge people to believe that if there is no fear of voting machines being fully inspected and secured before use they would be mis-programmed.  That should be the NORMAL expectation, not otherwise.

But let me tell you something far more dangerous (a bit off-topic):  an enemy can design a central computer chip so that under certain conditions it would start either acting differently and those conditions can be triggered remotely by the enemy - access to soucre code, assembly code, or even machine code wll not help - that is the ultimate danger in using enemy manufactured chips (or chips inserted through covert liaison) in defense arsenal or military intelligence.

What's amazing is Obama was elected based on all his lies--ending the wars, creating jobs, building the middle class, etc when he actually did the complete opposite and destroyed the middle class, invaded more countries then Bush and probably killed more people then Bush. He lied to the American people.

 

However, Hillary does not even pretend to lie. She outright says she hates the middle class, brags she will expand Obamacare, and more wars...

mofreedom's picture

Obama was elected because he was black, period.

He could have done awful things to little boys on MI ave in Chicago and would have still been selected by Soros and elected by some very stupid folks.

What a God-awful past eight years this has been.

FU McCain, FU Romney for being pussies.

Pussies!!!

On the other side we (all world except USA) are happy, that US is going to get destroyed from inside (as the emipres use to do).

For us it is a nice show to see USA Empire go down, and watching the unbelievable corruption of the pseudo-rulers and foreigners, like Soetoro, in charge of WH..
