Although mainstream media outlets have declared former Vice President Joe Biden the winner of the 2020 presidential election, President Donald Trump says the race is not over yet and has refused to concede until all allegations of voter fraud are pursued in court. And it looks like we just took a step in that direction.
The Washington Examiner reported Sunday that a former counting board member with Nevada’s Clark County elections office sent an affidavit to the Department of Justice (DOJ) alleging serious wrongdoing.
Whistleblower witnessed “irregularities”
The whistleblower, who has not been identified by name, worked at the elections office until Nov. 6, when he or she quit “due to concerns about how the votes were being counted,” Breitbart reported.
“I personally witnessed disregard of signature verification as well as other irregularities,” the counting board member said in the sworn statement, according to the Examiner.
“While working, I observed a significant number of signatures on mail-in ballots I believe did not match the name and should have been reviewed,” the whistleblower continued.
Rather than address the board member’s concerns, supervisors at the office disregarded them.
“When I asked the supervisors, [redacted] and others, about it, instead of taking the ballots to verify the signature in the electronic database, the supervisor told me to push the envelope through without verification,” the individual alleged, as the Examiner reported.
Pushing defective ballots through
The whistleblower specifically spoke of an incident in which a voter had written on the envelope that the individual no longer resided at the address on the ballot. “This ballot should have been listed as a rejected ballot, but the supervisor instructed me to push the ballot through,” the whistleblower recalled, according to the Examiner.
Joe Gloria, who serves as Clark County’s registrar of voters, has disputed the whistleblower’s allegations, however.
“The people on the counting board don’t have access to the signature map,” Gloria claimed, according to the Examiner. “So that’s work that takes place here in this building before it ever gets to the county.”
Gloria continued: “I’m not completely familiar with what exactly the individuals was talking about in specific instances, but we have an explanation for anything that he may have seen.”
In addition to Nevada, the Trump campaign claims there was impropriety in other states, most notably Pennsylvania. There, the state Supreme Court allowed votes to be sent in after Election Day in contravention of state law, according to a report from National Review. The Trump campaign has pledged to take the issue before the United States Supreme Court.
