As the 2020 presidential election remains contested, one security expert recently weighed in with his misgivings regarding Michigan’s results.
During a Fox Business Network interview, Russ Ramsland of Allied Security Operations Group said this week that the returns represented “a complete fraud” given the limitations of the voting machines and high rate of voter participation across the state.
“Looking mostly at Michigan”
His remarks came on Tuesday evening during an appearance on Lou Dobbs Tonight.

“We have been out looking mostly at Michigan,” Ramsland said, opining that the vote totals across the state were unrealistic.
He called the complaints of irregularities across the state “amazing,” asserting that “there are over 3,000 precincts where the presidential votes cast compared to the estimated voters from the secretary of state is 99% all the way up to 350%.”
Such results, he claimed, “don’t exist in the real world.”
“Where did all those votes come from?”
In other words, Ramsland noted that more than three times the number of voters cast ballots in some precincts than the secretary of state estimated. The data led Ramsland to ask: “So where did all those votes come from?”
That question is just one in a series that he hopes to answer through the ongoing review of Michigan’s election returns.
“We’ve gone back and looked at some of these huge vote dumps that were mostly Biden’s,” he explained. “We call them spikes. We’ve gone back and traced the spikes. We’ve seen where they were cast, primarily in four counties. We looked at how long it took to cast those votes. And we looked at the equipment that exists at all of those locations by serial number.”
Ramsland concluded that “the fact of the matter is we can’t see any physical way possible for some of those votes to have been in those kind of numbers because they just don’t have the equipment that can produce it in that timing.”
Despite his misgivings and those of other industry experts, however, Michigan’s Wayne County Board of Canvassers made a decision this week to certify the election results after members were initially deadlocked along party lines. In light of that development, President Donald Trump tweeted that the two GOP officials who voted against certification were “threatened, screamed at and viciously harassed” before they ultimately relented and changed their positions.
