Vote Fraud

Don’t know whether I have written about vote fraud before, but, with Donald Trump attorney (now working on her own) Sidney Powell laying out the strategy she suspects last week (see C-Span after Giuliani), my personal experience and that of a friend may be relevant to readers.

In 1996, State Rep. Al Salvi and I ran joint campaigns with signs opposing tax hike without referendums.

Al Salvi-Cal Skinner 1996 yard sign.

He was seeking to become U.S Senator.

I was running for re-election against a Cary McHenry County Board member put up by our Republican County Chairman Al Jourdan.

I remember being in Disney World when I learned of Brehmer’s candidacy and think, “If Al was displeased with my Springfield performance, why didn’t he tell me?”

Fast forward to Election Night.

Salvi and I were getting pretty close to 60% of the vote in McHenry County with about 55% of the precincts counted.

Then, the counting machine(s) were shut down, according to a friendly and computer savvy election room watcher.

Shortly before the punch cards for the last precinct were loaded into the reader, it was shut down again.

The final results for Salvi showed him carrying McHenry County by about 60% of the vote (59.2%)–the same proportion he had at the 55% of the count.

I ended up with just under 50%.

The vote in McHenry County was reported as 6,391 for Brehmer, 6,202 for me.

In Cook County, I led 1,276 to 525.

In all, I received 7,478 votes to Brehmer’s 6,916, more than enough coming from Barrington Township to make up for the 189 vote deficit in McHenry Counthy.

The final breakdown was 51.95% to 48.04%.

When the Daily Herald called for a comment about my close victory, I told the reporter that “they” didn’t remember that I had Barrington Township.

Barrington Township’s punch cards were counted in each precinct, not at a central location as in McHenry County.

Our observer in the counting room concluded that the first time the machine went down a new program was inserted to change the way votes were counted.

The second time was to revert to the original program of counting as tjhe law required.

The situation was so perplexing that supporter Dave Fredericks looked at the election results.

He added up the votes cast for Republican Precinct Committeeman and compared them to those cast for State Representative.

Fredericks found that more ballots were cast for GOP Precinct Committeemen than for State Representative.

That defied logic because not every precinct had a Precinct Committeeman candidate and very few Precinct Committeemen had opponents.

A substantial number of people don’t vote for candidates who have no opposition.

And, Precinct Committeeman is pretty much at the bottom of the ballot.

I spent $104,617 and, if Brehmer reported correctly, he spent $121,991.

To obtain the figures above I have added the expenditures reported to the Illinois State Board of Elections to each candidate’s reported in-kind contributions.

It strains credulity to believe that the high profile State Rep. race ended up with fewer votes than were cast for Republican Precinct Committeeman.

Here’s a summary by someone named Michael Charles Master, of whom I have never heard, which talks of a “pause” which occurred in various key states during the counting of Presidential ballots election night:

At midnight in Michigan, Trump was ahead by 5% (400 thousand votes) with 80% of the votes already counted.  

When the next 10% of votes of about 400,000 were counted from Wayne County (Detroit), then suddenly Biden caught Trump with 90% of the votes in.  

Biden made up 5% [percentage points?] with 10% of the total vote.  

That means that all the votes (close to 100%) from Wayne went to Biden.  

That also means that practically all registered voters voted in Wayne County.   

Does anyone believe any of that is possible?  

The same thing happened in Madison, Wisc., in Raleigh, NC, in Las Vegas, NV, and could be happening in Phil., PA by Friday.  

So why did all those Democrat stronghold cities take a “pause” to report their votes?

As I was listening to Trump attorney Sidney Powell talk of the insertion of a computer program change while ballot counting was paused, I got a sinking feeling in my stomach.

It sounded so similar to what happened in 1996 in McHenry County.

Let me go back to another incident related to me by Lorens Tronet, who ran a losing campaign as a Democrat against Phyllis Walters in 1984.

He told me that he and Elyse Roberts were standing in front of the Crystal Lake Jewel store and struck up a conversation with a man who said he worked for the Woodstock accounting firm which did the programming for McHenry County ballot counting.

The man was disturbed because he had not been paid the $1,500 he has been promised to make certain that the Establishment candidate for Circuit Court Judge beat the non-Establishment candidate.

The non-Establishment attorney was a popular guy, active in Opera House theater.

Although the non-Establishment attorney lost the election, strangely enough, he was appointed an Associate Judge later on.

Bringing this back to today, I have no idea how Trump’s lawyers can prove there was manipulation of the computer counting programs, but, based on my experience in McHenry County, I believe it could have occurred.

  1. LOL – even the Trump campaign lawyers have distanced themselves from Sidney Powell and her crazy rants and conspiracy theories.

  2. The U.S. needs a complete redesign of its voting system. Elements needed:
    – Every U.S. citizen must re-register and prove they are a U.S. citizen
    – No more motor voting registration nor registration on an election day
    – Bio metrics and photo ID for every voter with required updates every 10 years
    – Minimum voting age changed to 25
    – No minimum voting age for those U.S. citizens serving in the U.S. Military
    – Stringent provisions to account for those who die or move residence address
    – All early voting, absentee ballots systems eliminated
    – Voters must vote in person and only on two consecutive designated days to assure all citizens, such as doctors, nurses, truck drivers, police persons, etc have an opportunity to vote
    – All ballots are paper and retained for a designated period of time
    – Universal counting procedures used by all States and Counties
    – Computers and software for counting designed by and made in the U.S. with strict oversight by the U.S. National Bureau of Standards
    – Exit polls are illegal

  3. bred winner, all or most of your list will never be implemented. ☹️

  4. Thank You Cal Skinner for this article, those of us that were there in 1996, remember very clearly what happened.

    As a matter of fact, when I have a chance, I remind The Dick, of his allegiance to the UN Flag, Not The US Flag!

    The “dick” is a dim-witted dolt of the worse kind that loves “The New Deal”, not the United State of American and their borders.

  5. Little Eddie, most or all of your posts will never impress anyone.

    Please seek social acceptance elsewhere.

    The book of faces needs people like you. 😶

  6. DisHonestAbe1, actually what you said about me applies to you.

    Try Facebook and Capitol Fax, with your Democratic and other complaints. 😐

  7. There is no doubt that there was massive voter fraud.

    I haven’t the slightest confidence in this election.

  8. Trump started off in 2016 by losing the popular vote.

    His approval rating stayed low his entire term.

    He discouraged his voters from voting by certain legal methods and lost millions of dollars in campaign funds to various grifters and con artists.

    Is it any wonder Trump lost?

    No need to resort to crazy conspiracy theories and vague personal anecdotes to explain Biden’s election.

    Trump was as a bad a candidate and campaigner as he was a president.

  9. Hal, Are you accusing the McHenry County Clerk in 96 of commiting voter fraud?

  10. Alabama. you’ll soon be off the payroll I hope and stop spreading warmed-over Democrats fake news

    Sydney Powell is an extraordinary attorney whom the Democrats fear.

  11. Hey, AlabamaShake,

    And your claim that fame is?

    Sidney Powell never was officially on President Trump’s Legal Team.

    She is an incredible attorney & has an equally incredible reputation for truth.

    She makes no statements without proof to back those statements up.
    That said, those of us with any brains who watched the votes being switched from Trump to Beijing Biden on election night know EXACTLY what happened.

    Biden cheated. Trump is the winner & it’s up to Sidney Powell & Trump’s Legal Team to prove it.

    Sit back.

    Shut up & watch what happens next.

  12. That’s right Richard.

    You are on it.

    We rigged the election and forgot to take the senate and lost all the toss up seats. LOL!

    MASSIVE VOTER FRAUD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH



  14. THIS IS NOT RIGHT!!!!!



  15. Hey Slick, are you new to the game?

    May the best hacker win.

    Besides, the Pols were all controlled by big Al and his sidekick Black Jack, and other minions, when caught with their hands in the cookie jar, had to jump in front of trains, the Republican way.

  16. Thank You, Cal and A Trump Patriot, for your comment of Truth.

  17. Lotta stuff said here.

    Cal’s story certainly leads one to wonder.

    Do I think it could happen?

    Absolutely, but not suggesting it did.

    Bred Winner’s list right on the money but will NEVER happen.

    Makes too much sense so no way.

    Politicians do what’s best for THEM, not US.

  18. Look for the missing Trump votes on the other side of the “grassy knoll”.

    The towel has been tossed.

    The GSA has just told Biden he can now report for work.

  19. Cal, I remember that election.

    I remember the voting fraud.

    They cheated you out of 2,000 votes.

  20. While it’s totally possible that someone could hack a voting machine, in order for Sydney Powells claims to be accurate it would take more than just hacking the machines.

    The machine in question does have a paper trail and works similar to what we do here.

    The ballots are counted by the scanner and deposited to a sealed ballot box.

    As long as those seals are maintained it would be easy enough to count the votes by hand to verify.

    They did this in GA and the result was the same as the initial count, or at least close enough to see tens of thousands of votes were not switched.

    In order for her to be correct, not only would the machines need to be hacked but they would need to truck in ballots to back it up.

    Otherwise it would be very simple to uncover such cheating.

    Not saying it’s impossible, but it’s very much a long long shot.

    If she were right, not only would it call into question this race but almost every elected official in the country.

    I’d actually just hope trump lost legitimately and let’s win the senate in GA than for any of this to be true. Who knows though?

    It is 2020, anything is possible.

  21. All that being said, we should investigate her claims.

    She isn’t a Alex Jones and I wouldn’t just brush her off.

    I’m just saying the level of detail needed to pull her accusations off is very high.

    She could be right, but she will need a mountain of evidence to prove it.

  22. A lot of people are going to lose their chit when they find out that this is REALLY about pedophilia and Satanism. And you thought it was about elections!

  23. Laura Ingraham says that Biden will be president: ‘This constitutes living in reality’

    This is what I’ve been saying for weeks now.

    Welcome to the Resistance, Laura!

  24. I do believe Cindy is correct.

    Rumor has it, Pizzagate is what Watergate, was all about.

    Nixon too, had to be impeached, and HRC was involved in that too.

  25. They have been perpetrating frauds on us for generations! Why would anyone trust ANY of them?

    AND Dianne, you can shut your freakin’ mouth. Only a simpleton does that nanny nanny boo boo chit. So address me properly or shut up! Juveniles. They have absolutely no respect for their elders while they think taunting is a sign of wisdom.

  26. Cindy Lou Q

    I call it what it is – the TRUTH. You’re part of the QAnon conspiracy crap.

    Respect is earned.
    Promoting such vile hatred earns you none.

    From Wikipedia:

    QAnon[a] (/ˌkjuːəˈnɒn/) is a far-right conspiracy theory[b] alleging that a cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles is running a global child sex-trafficking ring and plotting against US President Donald Trump, who is fighting the cabal.[2] QAnon also commonly asserts that Trump is planning a day of reckoning known as the “Storm”, when thousands of members of the cabal will be arrested.[3][4] No part of the conspiracy claim is based in fact.[5][6][7][8] QAnon supporters have accused many liberal Hollywood actors, Democratic politicians, and high-ranking government officials of being members of the cabal.[9] They have also claimed that Trump feigned conspiracy with Russians to enlist Robert Mueller to join him in exposing the sex trafficking ring and preventing a coup d’état by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and George Soros.[10][11]

  27. How could doofus, dementia, senile, racist, accused rapist, plagiarist, woman hair smeller, obnoxious woman kisser, Biden be a president? During the 2020 campaign season, Biden said he was running for Senate.

    There was a guy picked for VP back in 1972 who was not a doofus, racist, accused rapist, plagiarist, woman hair smeller, obnoxious woman kisser nor did he DISPLAY mental problems, senility or dementia.

    When far left wing Democrat presidential candidate George McGovern found out that the VP candidate he picked, Thomas Eagleton (Ingleton per Mayor Daley) had been treated with electric shock for spells of depression in the past, he Eagleton was replaced by Sargent Shriver lest Eagleton be a national security threat via his mental issues that experts advised could recur.

    Here in 2020, the Democrat Party obviously had no problem in promoting Biden. They ignored the Eagleton lesson of responsibility to a nation. They did not ask Biden to drop out. They did not care that their guy clearly showing signs of senility or dementia or some other mental problem could be elected to the most powerful person on Earth. The power to launch nuclear war. Biden has shown poor judgement on his positions over the decades on issues critical to the U.S. Given that history and his current mental problems, how might he hurt our Nation on future decisions necessary to protect U.S. interests?

    Who in the private sector would hire a 78-year old person with mental issues or senility or dementia to manage even the smallest factory, shop or department? Nobody. How did the Biden hiring happen?

    Over the past four years, voters were barraged with daily, hourly unfair attacks on Trump by remnants of the Obama regime, Democrats and the mostly left wing media. In contrast, the mostly left wing media protected Biden from scrutiny over the past two years. They asked few serious questions. They ignored his hiding in his home basement. The mostly left wing media had much to do to influence voters for Biden and against Trump. We might just as well have Russia’s Pravda dispersing news in the U.S. Could they be more credible?

  28. Cindy, the “Deep State” has had their hands in Elections all over the world, to make sure their NWO Candidate would be elected.

    Didn’t I read at one time, that Jimmy Carter & the UN went to other countries, to certify their elections? Hmmm.



  30. How is Donald Trump doing?

    Has he won any more states yet?

    He must stop people from stealing the election.

    He has been a good president. 🙂🔔

  31. We have had and continue to have a voting system that can be easily manipulated by computer programming from anywhere and it is virtually invisible to most people.

    This is exactly how the Establishment of both major parties wants it…

    Each naive voter thinking because their side won this time that everything is just fine…that is until their candidate looses…

    Think of Hillary Clinton and Al Gore and others…

    The Establishment wants everybody to continue to be suckers because both major parties have done the same thing and most of the Establishment keep their jobs…

    Cal has provided the structure for this discussion based on personal experience and I am one of the appointed election process observers that can attest that the vote manipulation concept is the same as it has been for many years…

    only the sophistication has changed.

  32. Primate offers Don Meredith singing the party is over, and sings that all good things must end.

    So true. There were numerous good things over past 4 years for the U.S. including cleaning up messes that Obama/Biden left. Next, in Jan, a return to the Deep, Dark and stupid State of the 8-year Obama Regime with sidekick dope Biden at the helm. Biden is extending the Obama Regime with goofballs such as John Kerry.

  33. Primate needs to be keelhauled.

    I volunteer.

    Just give me gloves.

  34. Didn’t the words from John Paul Jones “I have not yet begun to fight” sink in?

    There is a plausible road to overturn this election by proving manipulation of Dominion vote counting devices.

    Takes time, but it must be considered before declaring defeat.

    I am no Trump fan, voted Constitution party, but I love America and demand electoral integrity.

    God bless America!
