Is Delaware County PA Where The Election Fraud Tide Turns?
Mike Lindell's Delayed SCOTUS Filing Sucked All The Oxygen Out Of The Room, But This PA Whistleblower Filing Appears To Have Legs
About a week and a half ago, Law Professor Margot Cleveland dropped a bombshell on her Twitter account. She revealed videos that showed recognizable officials in Delaware County, Pennsylvania destroying federal election records from November of last year.
Even when directly challenged by the person making the videos, who appears to be a whistleblower filming this illegal activity, one of the officials scoffs and dismisses her concerns.
Having read through this 91-page lawsuit, I can tell you it is exhaustively researched, well argued and hard to refute. It makes a most compelling case that specific officials in Delaware County violated their oaths and the law by first conspiring to destroy federal election records, then compounding that by conspiring to create fake election records to replace the ones they had destroyed.
The filing lays out a compelling story of how a simple open records request led to an epic saga in which an undercover whistleblower managed to secretly record Delaware County officials not only breaking the law, but bragging about doing it.
First, some background: Delaware County was the last county to report it’s vote totals in the November 2020 election. County officials held back until all the other counties had reported, so they’d know how many votes they needed to flip the Presidential race in the state from Trump to Biden.
All kinds of manifest problems surfaced with the reported numbers from the county that ended up being certified. So back in May of this year, after having spent months trying to get PA Attorney General Josh Shapiro or the US Attorney for PA, William McSwain, to act on the blatant fraud, several citizens filed an open records request in court.
This simple opens record request, the kind that any citizen may file in any county court in the land, set off an amazing chain of events.
The Die Is Cast
Upon receiving a court order requiring them to show these county election records to the plaintiffs, a whistleblower caught the officials involved on video destroying the records and discussing how to cover up what they were doing.
While retrieving the hidden election records with the whistleblower filming it all, county officials confess the records were an “irreconcilable mess”, and they’d been hiding the records in a basement trying to wait out the clock until they could legally destroy them. But now the court order in response to the open records request was unfortunately forcing their hand.
I want you to grasp this, so I’m going to repeat it: right after a legal Right To Know Law request was filed, and the court granted it, these Delaware County election employees marched straight to where they were hiding these election records and equipment and destroyed it all.
And somebody right in the middle of it all working with these corrupt goons got it on camera.
WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU???!!!
Step 1: File a legal Right To Know request in court asking for the Delaware County election records you know these pricks are hiding.
Step 2: When the Delaware County officials freaked out by your specific Right To Know request go straight to where they have been hiding the legally requested election records & equipment to destroy them, there just happens to be a whistleblower on the scene who’s able to GET THE INTENTIONAL DESTRUCTION OF THESE ELECTION RECORDS ON CAMERA.
Step 3: You file a lawsuit extensively detailing with documentary and video evidence how these specific Delaware County officials destroyed federal election records.
Were these corrupt count officials baited into this action by the filing of the RTKL request? Did somebody anticipate how they would react to suddenly being told by a legal filing in court that they were going to have to produce the election records?
Because it becomes clear from reading the whistleblower complaint and watching the videos that these county officials were **terrified** at the thought of any outsider examining these election records. They put on a brave face in the videos, of course, laughing and talking about having a big ‘campfire’, but you can smell the fear behind their actions.
A Study In Contrasts
Note that what’s happened in Delaware County is the **exact opposite** of what happened in Maricopa County.
A massive forensic audit happened, costing millions of dollars, using hundreds of volunteers that took months to complete and in the end, reports were issued and a grand total of 3 people were alleged to have been caught on camera destroying federal election records. But all the pictures of these individuals were redacted and their names were not made public.
A referral for criminal prosecution of these three individuals was made to Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich.
Brnovich has been able to keep the identities of the three people supposedly caught on camera in Maricopa County AZ secret while he does his investigation into the alleged destruction of the county’s election records. Thus far he’s been investigating for about six weeks with no results being publicly announced.
Well, that’s to be expected. **Criminal** investigations aren’t done transparently because many times people who are accused of having committed crimes end up being innocent, not involved, or there’s no way to prove they did it. So Brnovich and his office’s investigators have scrupulously protected the identities of these three persons accused by the Cyber Ninjas firm of having destroyed these county records.
But the opposite of this has happened in Delaware County, Pennsylvania. Due to a whistleblower complaint filed with video exhibits in **civil court**, the identities of all the county officials allegedly involved in the destruction of election records is already public information. There was no need to redact any of the names or disguise their appearance in the video exhibits because none of them were being accused of a **criminal act** in the lawsuit filing. They were merely accused of having **violated the voter’s civil rights** by running a corrupt election in November 2020 and then destroying these records to cover up what they did.
So without a forensic audit costing millions of dollars, taking hundreds of thousands of man hours from hundreds of volunteers, public officials were publicly outed in a most damning civil court filing.
That’s genius, if you ask me.
Why Can’t This Be Repeated In A Hundred Other Counties?
Open Records Laws are everywhere. Almost every county in the US has one. And November 2020 election records are **public documents**. If you file in court to see the county election records for November 2020 so you can check them against the certified total that was reported for your county, you should be able to do that.
There is no reason groups of concerned citizens in key counties in PA, GA, AZ, MI, WI and NV cannot file open records requests in their own counties to see the election records there.
In fact, one group of concerned citizens in Georgia who started a group called VoterGa already wrung an admission from 74 GA counties that they do not presently have the Nov. 2020 election records they are required to preserve for 22 months. They either did not make the required records, or they destroyed them already. Either way, they violated both state and federal laws.
Does YOUR county still have the November 2020 election records that they are required by federal law to preserve until September 2022? It would be a fantastic idea for you to file an open records request and ask to see those election records.
Just to be sure.
Just to check their math, and see if the election records match the number the county ended up reporting and was certified.
Because county officials can give four wrong answers to an open records request for public election records:
They can ignore the court filing, which raises a red flag
They can fight the court filing, which is a bad look for them
They can admit they no longer have those election records, which is a **really** bad look for them
They can hand the election records over and make excuses when they don’t match the certified total that was reported by them
Of course, it’s always possible that
They hand over the records, you check and the numbers from the election records matches the certified total that was reported. Well great. At least now you know and you checked their math.
While a lot of people are really high on the idea of starting with very expensive full forensic audits that require detailed planning, a high level of organization and a deep pool of personnel, I think it would be best to start instead with small groups of citizens filing open records requests in key selected counties in these battleground states.
There’s 11 months to go until the November 2022 elections. Proving the election theft of 2020 starts at the county level. While full forensic audits have to be started up and approved by politicians, and then funded and staffed, nothing I’m aware of is stopping small groups of concerned citizens from filing open records requests in their own counties. You don’t need permission from your governor, Attorney General, State Senate or whoever to file an open records request.
Local Action = National Impact.
I’m pretty sure there are hundreds of counties out there where the local officials are trying the same thing the Delaware County people were doing: hiding the county election records and praying nobody will file an open records request so they’d have to produce them, and thereby open up a massive can of worms.
You know what I say?
I say let’s start opening some cans.
