Arizona has been the scene of an election audit for quite some time.
And now it turns out one of the shocking claims about what happened to the ballots there has been proven.
Thin ballot paper used for approximately 168,000 ballots led to markers “bleeding through” the paper, damaging ballots, after a Maricopa County official ordered staff to hand out Sharpie markers to same-day voters even though she knew about concerns with the Sharpies. Now, new witness evidence provided to NATIONAL FILE proves, once and for all, that the SharpieGate scandal is completely true.National File
That’s a huge number of ballots, and easily enough to overturn the result of the election in the state.
As time goes on, more and more of the truth about what happened on Election Day is being revealed.
Here’s an extract from a witness statement confirming the SharpieGate scandal.
As soon as I entered the building I gave the lady my voter registration card which of course verifies my political party and if I am registered to vote. She proceeds to hand me a sharpie. I told her why the hell would I use a marker for my ballot when I can use my own ball point pen? She immediately argued with me for refusing to use a sharpie. I told the lady I wasn’t stupid! I was once an engineering student and I know that these machines are programmed to only read ball point pen only. It was even stated on the sample ballot to use ball point pen only. She then argues with me about the machines being a “New System” and that I need to trust the system because it can now read sharpies.National File
This is already starting to appear sinister, but the story goes on.
I also stated that the sample ballot even states to use ball point pen as well as the original one which was printed out to me. I spent about 45 minutes arguing with her. Eventually I got sick of hearing her s*** and I told her to hand me my ballot after arguing with her. I took her dumb sharpie and used it on my ballot because I had to pick up a client at 3:30pm and I didn’t want to waste more time arguing with this lady. I was then directed to go vote at the red table. I then became highly suspicious because why were the tables color coded red and blue around me and why was I directed to vote at the red table?
When I was filling out my ballot I also decided to take a photo of my ballot so I can upload it to social media. I was proud of voting for Trump. Then the same lady who argued with me about the sharpie screams at me for taking a photo of my ballot and told me that “There are no phones or cameras allowed inside.” I told her it’s my ballot which is now my property and I can do what I want with it. Once I was done with my ballot I was directed to give my ballot to the guy on the left which I did. I then left the building frustrated. Never in my life have I had a difficult time voting in my life.National File
The problems just keep stacking up.
It’s only a best guess, but it sounds like they were trying to make it harder to vote.
That would be very weird for election officials whose role is to ensure the integrity of an election.
Finally, the witness revealed their vote seemingly wasn’t counted.
The reason that the sharpies were causing issues is that the paper the ballots were printed on was extremely thin.
“We are seeing a lot of very thin paper stock being used especially on Election Day,” said Doug Logan, Cyber Ninjas CEO, noting that approximately 168,000 on-site ballots printed at polling places used this thin paper, which resulted in a “bleed-through” ink effect that damaged ballots.National File
Here’s some proof.
And not only that, an election official from Maricopa County insisted that sharpies had to be used on Election Day.
All of this needs to be fully investigated, so we can get to the bottom of what really happened in Maricopa County.
