In Michigan, a full one-third of precincts in Detroit-based Wayne County were unable to have ballots counted due to discrepancies with vote counts. Reports are now showing that a single ballots may have been counted as many as six times.
Recounts in Michigan were supposed to be halted after a federal judge stopped Michigan’s recount efforts after two days of ballot counting. The judge decided there was no legitimate evidence or reason to continue. However, following the verdict, news reports have begun pouring in of possible vote fraud.
In Wayne County, 66 percent of voters cast their ballots for Hillary Clinton and only 29 percent for Donald Trump. Detroit News pinpoints the specific problem: “Officials couldn’t reconcile vote totals for 610 of 1,680 precincts during a countywide canvass of vote results late last month. Most of those are in heavily Democratic Detroit, where the number of ballots in precinct poll books did not match those of voting machine printout reports in 59 percent of precincts, 392 of 662.”
Under Michigan state law, if a precinct’s poll books don’t match its ballots, then the original election results stand. “It’s not good,” Detroit Elections Director Daniel Baxter told the Detroit News right before the judge ceased recount efforts. “County reports obtained by The Detroit News, though, indicate canvassers were provided no explanation for why the numbers didn’t add up in those precincts. They certified the results of the election anyway.”
“[Baxter] blamed the discrepancies on the city’s decade-old voting machines, saying 87 optical scanners broke on Election Day,” the newspaper reported of the director. “Many jammed when voters fed ballots into scanners, which can result in erroneous vote counts if ballots are inserted multiple times. Poll workers are supposed to adjust counters to reflect a single vote but in many cases failed to do so, causing the discrepancies.”
Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft isn’t buying Baxter’s explanation, and wrote his own opinion on the matter:
“Once they started the Michigan recount in earnest, and knowing he would be exposed, the Detroit City Clerk Daniel Baxter all of a sudden started claiming that the optical scanners which read the paper ballots did not work the day of the election. Baxter blamed the discrepancies on decade-old voting machines. That is his cover story. Nothing like this was mentioned until he realized their voting fraud scheme would be detected.
Baxter’s claim is that, when trying to push the ballots through the readers, the ballots would be stuck and they’d have to push them through again thus ‘ACCIDENTALLY’ resulting in a double count. He says the poll workers sometimes ‘FORGET’ to adjust the machine count and instead let the ballot count twice.
