Remember last week when we told you about Democrats caught stuffing ballot boxes at all hours of the night to cheat to win an election in Bridgeport, Connecticut? Well there’s been a couple major updates to the scandal.
A quick recap to jog your memory, last month a video was released by Bridgeport Mayoral candidate John Gomes showing an obvious case of election fraud. A woman was caught on city cameras dropping stacks of ballots into an absentee ballot box outside the Bridgeport government center, where the city’s Registrar of Voters office is located.
The ballot-stuffing woman was identified as Wanda Geter-Pataky, the Vice Chairwoman of the Democratic Town Clerk and a vocal supporter of incumbent Mayor Joe Ganim – who Gomes was challenging.
Gomes, who lost the election by a tiny margin of 251 votes, said that the video was PROOF that the election was rigged against him.
“Video surveillance proving that the mayoral election was unequivocally stolen through corruption within City Hall by tampering with absentee ballots,” John Gomes said on his Facebook page.
“This is an undeniable act of voter suppression and a huge civil rights violation. It’s time to restore lasting credibility to our city’s democracy. Once and for ALL. Enough is enough!” he added.
Now, a judge has begun hearing evidence in the legal case to overturn this election and there have been DAMMING admissions made.
Bridgeport Democratic Registrar of Voters Patricia Howard admitted that she has NOT been following Connecticut law regarding the handling of mail-in-ballots.
According to this law, each absentee ballot must be signed off on by the town clerk, and if this requirement is not met, the ballot cannot be counted.
This would render the ballots dropped off by Wanda Geter-Pataky as seen in the video INVALID, but Howard chose to break the law and allow them to count nonetheless!
Bill Bloss, the Attorney for John Gomes, asked Howard if she was aware of the state’s requirements for absentee ballots, “Were you aware that the Secretary of State says that an outer envelope, the endorsement of the town clerk, must show the date, the precise time the clerk received the ballot, and the clerk’s signature?”
He continued, “And were you aware that if the Secretary of Estate says in Exhibit 126, if an outer envelope does not substantially comply with this requirement, the ballot cannot be counted?”
Howard claims that she wasn’t aware of any of this in a disturbing admission confirming that none of these rules were followed.
But that’s not all!
The court proceedings revealed that not only is there no signature verification, but the largest city in Connecticut doesn’t even bother checking if the people are U.S. citizens.
Howard effectively confirms that the election was very easily STOLEN through the all-too-familiar election rigging tactics that we have seen rolled out across the country in recent years.
In this case, it was just a Mayoral race, but this is further proof that Democrats are putting these shady tactics in play to subvert our Democracy and decide themselves who ACTUALLY wins elections in America.
