Obama ignored Russian election tampering, which according to Administration officials goes back to 2008, yet after Trump won the election, he decided we must investigate. One wonders why he is unlikely to apply the same standard when clear evidence of massive vote irregularities appear in a heavily Democrat county in Michigan.
The Detroit News reports that voting machines in MORE THAN A THIRD of precincts in heavily Democrat Wayne County, home to Detroit, registered more votes than the number of voters who signed voter rolls:
Voting machines in more than one-third of all Detroit precincts registered more votes than they should have during last month’s presidential election, according to Wayne County records prepared at the request of The Detroit News.Not normal? That's an understatement.
Detailed reports from the office of Wayne County Clerk Cathy Garrett show optical scanners at 248 of the city’s 662 precincts, or 37 percent, tabulated more ballots than the number of voters tallied by workers in the poll books. Voting irregularities in Detroit have spurred plans for an audit by Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson’s office, Elections Director Chris Thomas said Monday.
The Detroit precincts are among those that couldn’t be counted during a statewide presidential recount that began last week and ended Friday following a decision by the Michigan Supreme Court.
Democrat Hillary Clinton overwhelmingly prevailed in Detroit and Wayne County. But Republican President-elect Donald Trump won Michigan by 10,704 votes or 47.5 percent to 47.3 percent.
“There’s always going to be small problems to some degree, but we didn’t expect the degree of problem we saw in Detroit. This isn’t normal,” said Krista Haroutunian, chairwoman of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers.
Now you know why election night analysts kept pointing to the map of Michigan wondering how why whether late reported votes from Wayne County would be enough to put Hillary over the top. You can picture an army of Hillary supporters flooding voting machines with illegal votes!
While suspicious results from these precincts would not be counted in a recount it hardly matters. The damage is already done. The totals from these areas were already included in the state's certified election result. Is it any wonder it took WEEKS for Michigan to certify Trump the winner?
How many thousands of votes were illegally cast? And if this tactic was this widespread, who is behind it? All key questions for an investigation. One will be launched by Michigan officials but one can imagine how quick Obama would be to start a federal investigation if Trump had been the beneficiary. Ordinary Michigan voters whose votes were nullified by what appears to be blatant ballot box stuffing deserve answers!
