Arizona state Rep. Mark Finchem read a letter from a whistleblower who claims Democrat operatives added 35,000 votes to Democrat candidates during Pima County’s election integrity hearing held this week.
Election integrity advocate Mark Finchem read from an email previously “included in some of the testimony and evidence” from the famous election integrity hearing held on November 30 of last year. According to Finchem, this email “sets the stage” for election integrity efforts.
Finchem says the letter was dated November 10, 2020, and “is addressed to the criminal division at the U.S. Department of Justice.”
A transcript of the letter read by Finchem during his speech is below:
‘This is anonymous reporting and I do not want to be included in this investigation. Thank you.
Please be advised the Pima County Recorder, located at 240 N. Stone Avenue in Tucson, Arizona, 85701 in Pima County, Arizona, and the Democrat Party added fraud votes. In the initial count of the vote by mail (VBM) totals released at 8 pm on November 3, 2020, There are approximately 35,000 fraud votes added to each Democrat candidates’ vote totals. Candidates impacted include County, State, and Federal Election candidates. Through the utilization of the automated ballot count machines in Pima County Elections, My understanding is that 35,000 was embedded into each Democrat candidates’ total votes. Below are the meeting notes.
In a meeting I was invited to by the Democrat party in Pima County, Arizona on September 10, 2020, no phones or recording devices were allowed. A presentation was given including detailed plans to embed 35,000 votes in a spread configured distribution to each Democrat candidate’s vote totals.
When I asked, “How in the world would 35,000 votes be kept hidden, or from being discovered?” It was stated that spread distribution will be embedded across the total registered vote range and will not exceed the registered voter count. And the 35,000 was determined allowable for Pima County based on our county registered voter count.
It was also stated total voter turnout versus total registered voters determined how many votes we can embed. The embedding will also adjust based on voter turnout. Because the embedded votes are distributed sporadically, all embedded votes will not be found if audited because embeds are in groups of approximately 1,000. This is so the County Recorder can declare an oversight issue or error, as a group of 1,000 is a normal and acceptable error.
Maricopa County’s embed totals will be substantially larger than Pima, due to embeds being calculated based on the total number of registered voters. When I asked, “Has this ever been tested, and how do we know it works?” the response was, yes, this has been tested and has shown significant success in Arizona judicial retention elections, since 2014. Even undetectable in post audits because no candidate will spend the kind of funds needed to audit and contact voters to verify votes and the full potential of the total registered voters, which is more than 500,000 registered voters. This year our Secretary of State has removed precinct level detail from election night releases, so candidates can’t see precinct over-votes.
This is what I have from this meeting. Just thought I’d report this. Not sure if you can do anything since I was unable to have a recording device at this meeting. Thank You.’
Finchem also told Pima County that his team was able to verify that the IP address matching the computer used to send the email is in Tucson, Arizona, but noted that he has been unable to verify the identity of the whistleblower. National File has not been able to independently verify the whistleblower’s claims.
On her website, Arizona state Sen. Wendy Rogers compiled a series of bullet points from the hearing.
Among other findings noted by Rogers, it was alleged that “Every voting machine violated Arizona Code § 16-442(B), which states that voting machines “may only be certified for use in [Arizona] if they comply with the Help America Vote Act of 2002 and…have been tested and approved by a laboratory that is accredited pursuant to the Help America Vote Act of 2002.” Additionally, “None of the required documents or items were submitted, e.g. bonds. This represents work being done without a contract.”
Finchem has called for Pima County to be audited in a fashion similar to Maricopa County, and is acquiring petitions to pressure legislators into reexamining the 2020 election in another county.
The Maricopa County, Arizona audit revealed multiple anomalies that vastly outsize the number of votes attributed to Joe Biden’s win in the state, leading to more claims that the 2020 election was not credible.
Multiple Arizona Republicans, including Rogers, Finchem, and Arizona Republican Party Chair Kelli Ward, have called for the state’s 2020 election results to be decertified. In October, Ward also joined the call for Pima County’s 2020 election results to be audited.
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, who is now running for U.S. Senate, has been criticized by 45th President Donald Trump for not acting on the findings of the Maricopa County audit.
