Despite the best efforts of President-elect Donald Trump and his nefarious brand of twisted politics to prevent a recount in Wisconsin it is in full swing. Those who are observing the recount on behalf of Jill Stein, who requested the recount, have presented evidence to show the votes were indeed tampered with.
An individual, who is known only as “Wendy” has been on the ground in St. Croix County in Wisconsin. That county is performing both a recount of the machines used, and of all ballots which were cast by hand. As was shared by Wendy, she observed that five seals were broken on nine voting machines. The evidence which has been posted on Jill Stein’s official website shows that seals were indeed broken. The seals themselves come with a warning that “removal of seal voids warranty.”
At this time it is difficult to dispute that the voting machines were indeed tampered with, but what is not known is if they were tampered with before the election or after. There is no timeline to know when the machines were originally issued, or if they were used in previous elections.
This raises serious questions about all elections in Wisconsin, and not just the general election. Thus far Wisconsin election officials have offered no statement as to the status of their voting machines, or about the broken seals. The only thing that has been learned so far during the Wisconsin recount is that the rules were not followed, and that the people of Wisconsin were cheated out of a fair democratic process.
As the recount has only begun, there is no telling what other despicable details will be unearthed, but if this evidence has been located so early in the scenario it is fair to believe that the broken seals are merely the tip of a massive iceberg.
