November 13, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — Leaked audio from a poll worker training session, recently posted online with commentary by reporter Shane Trejo, reveals that poll worker procedures were taught in Detroit that leave ballot-counting vulnerable to fraud, prompting Michigan attorney general Dana Nessel to issue a letter to Trejo demanding that he “cease and desist use of #Detroit Leaks video across all media platforms.”
The October 28 audio recording captures key sound bites of an instructor teaching procedures — most of which are now official in Michigan — that buck previous safeguards of election integrity.
Trejo begins the audio exposé with a clip of the instructor telling trainees that poll-watchers and challengers have to stay six feet away from them on Election Day. One trainee began to ask, “So the six feet back, unless they have really good vision, they can’t actually see — ”
“Exactly. Unless they got really good vision or they brought their binoculars,” the instructor replied, triggering laughter from the trainees.
PETITION UPDATE (1/15/2021) -
The events of the past month, and especially the past 10 days, have shaken the faith Americans have in their elected and appoint officials.
We continue to call for investigations to be made into allegations of election fraud. Texas is in the process of prosecuting one political operative for illegal ballot harvesting, and multiple state legislatures have called for investigations, too.
However, the judiciary has severely let down the American electorate.
As we have said all along, the integrity of the election is much bigger than President Trump. Election integrity is at the heart of republican democracy, and if we don't have it, we no longer have a functioning republic.
Therefore, we continue to seek the truth for the election outcome. Perhaps that will only be known in the future when state or federal commissions are established to investigate the instances of election fraud which were witnessed and sworn to, by thousands of Americans of all political persuasions.
In the meantime, you may still sign this petition. Thank you!
PETITION UPDATE (12/10/20) -
On Wednesday, President Trump tweeted: "We will be INTERVENING in the Texas (plus many other states) case. This is the big one. Our Country needs a victory!"
He is referring to the lawsuit which the state of Texas has filed against Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Georgia in the Supreme Court over changes those states made to their election rules, claiming they violated the U.S. Constitution in the process.
Here is the central part of the argument: if Texas were to allow possible voter fraud to go unchecked in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Georgia, it would be akin to committing fraud upon the people of Texas, who cast their ballots within the framework of the law.
Indeed, this would apply equally to all citizens who voted within the framework of the law across the United States!
President Trump also tweeted that this case is, "very strong...ALL CRITERIA MET."
Please continue to SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition, now.
PETITION UPDATE (12/7/20) - Since this petition was launched, President Trump's legal team, as well as other concerned citizens, have discovered what appears to be irrefutable evidence of voter fraud in several of the key battleground states, and have initiated legal challenges in six states.
While the situation continues to evolve, this remains a hugely important petition which we encourage you to SIGN and SHARE.
Below, please WATCH and READ about the mounting evidence of voter fraud and how the mainstream media seem determined to ignore even the most egregious instances of vote tampering. Then, please SIGN and SHARE this petition.
LifeSite supports President Trump with this petition because we believe he is trying to defend the Constitution, ensuring that electoral fraud does not taint the result of the 2020 general election.
But, since starting this petition, we have launched a separate petition related to the disputed election outcome, calling on the Department of Justice to 'do their job' and engage in meaningful investigations of the mounting evidence of voter fraud.
We believe that conducting forensic audits of ballots and voting machines, as well as issuing subpoenas to collect more evidence, would be a good start.
Thankfully, some of the state started to demand investigations independent of federal agencies. But we still believe that the DoJ needs to use its enormous fact-finding resources to help resolve allegations of election fraud.
Thank you for continuing to SIGN and SHARE all our election-related petitions.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which calls on all Americans to Stand With President Trump as he uses every legitimate means to find out if voter fraud played any role in the election outcome.
Amid allegations of voter fraud, and at a time when the situation with COVID has been used by many of the states to facilitate the use of mail-in ballots on a massive scale, we need to be very careful in dismissing the possibility of voter fraud.
The fact is, the possibility of wide-spread fraud with mail-in ballots is significant.
But, this is not about Donald Trump or Joe Biden! This about whether or not the sanctity of the ballot box has been tampered with!
Please Stand With President Trump as he attempts to defend the integrity of this election, as well as well as the right to vote itself!
Indeed, this is so important, not so much because one election hangs in the balance, but because our democracy, itself, hangs in the balance.
Americans not only have a right to know, but should demand that every legitimate means be used to discover the truth about these elections!
Please SIGN this petition and Stand With President Trump to ensure that these elections were conducted freely and fairly!
While most all Americans believe in playing by the rules, we also know that some very devious, politically-motivated operatives have been trying to harm the Trump administration from before he even took the oath of office.
This fact should lead us to question how some allegations of voter fraud can be so easily dismissed by state election authorities.
We demand to know the truth, and, for the sake of our democracy, we demand that President Trump keep fighting to learn the truth.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition today!

Michigan’s initial 2020 election training policy incorporated social distancing guidelines demanding that even poll-watchers and challengers keep six feet of distance from election workers. However, this policy was legally challenged, and the very same day of the training captured in the audio — Oct. 28 — a settlement was reached in court that allowed for poll-watchers and challengers to stand closer to election workers as needed.
The agreement stated that while challengers and poll-watchers “should maintain at least six feet of distance between themselves and election workers and voters as reasonably possible,” they were also “permitted” to “temporarily stand in closer proximity to election workers” in order to perform their legal duties.
It was declared during the court proceedings that “amended written guidance” expressing the substance of the agreement should be issued to local election officials “no later than” October 29 at 5 P.M.
It is unclear whether election workers received the memo, as there are numerous reports of poll-watchers and challengers in Detroit being prevented from observing election workers, and even from entering a vote-counting hall.
The leaked audio also reveals that poll workers are being trained to submit challenged ballots, which are filled out by voters whose eligibility is in question, together with unchallenged ballots into the tabulating machine. This procedure all but defeats the point of challenging a ballot, as it means that the challenged ballots are automatically counted except possibly in the event of a recount, as Trejo points out in his commentary:

“All challenged ballots WILL be counted immediately on Election Night, and only if, after the fact, a challenged ballot is rejected, will an election official locate the ballot box, break the seal, and fish out the challenged ballot from the pile of thousands to find the one with the Post-It tape covering up the challenged ballot number.”
In the leaked audio, the instructor is heard saying, “How do you challenge a ballot? You take the ballot, you write under the barcode, 2003, and you cover it with what kind of tape? Post-It! The Post-It tape! But this time, you’re going to put it in the secrecy sleeve, and Mr. Stark is going to vote as normal. So his ballot is going through what? The tabulator.”
Michigan’s attorney general, Dana Nessel, demanded that Trejo remove all #DetroitLeaks videos in her “cease and desist” letter, dated Oct. 28, and accuses him of “intentionally misleading and altering information pertaining to elections.”
She claims in her letter, “At 6:36, you state that challenged ballots will be tabulated and cannot be uncounted later. This is a false statement as the challenger has six days to prove the improper vote.”
It is unclear just what Nessel is referring to here, as Trejo’s precise comment at 6:36 in the video refers to “regular,” not “challenged,” votes: “A vote processed as a ‘regular voter’ on Election Day will be tabulated and cannot be un-counted later.”
One of the points highlighted by Trejo in the leaked audio is that voters can present an “easily forged piece of paper” to demonstrate their voter registration on Election Day.
The instructor is heard explaining to her class that people who have registered to vote only a day or two before Election Day, and whose registration therefore won’t appear in the system, can present a paper receipt as proof of registration.
Trejo maintains that “it only takes a crude forgery for anyone to vote, anywhere,” and that “anyone with the know-how could generate thousands of fake late-registration receipts. Complete with valid address and polling location address.”
In the audio recording, a trainee is heard asking what to do if poll challengers start “yelling and making a scene.” The instructor replies, “9-1-1. They got standards, they got conduct standards. If they make a scene, get ’em up out of there. Call the police on them.”
The last instruction revealed in the leaked audio refers to a scenario when someone comes in to the poll to vote, but his record indicates that an absentee ballot was “sent and received.” In this case, the trainees are instructed: “Do not issue him a ballot!” If that person protests, saying he hasn’t voted, and gets “loud” or “rude,” students are instructed to provide him a “provisional envelope.”
The instructor exclaims, “Why? Where’s it goin’? Not in the tabulator! It’s goin’ in that envelope, right? We have how many days? Six! So what is the Department of Elections going to do with it? Destroy it!”
Trejo explains in his video why this is a problem: “[The] trainer assumes the voter has already voted absentee. Unsaid is the possibility the absentee ballot was stolen, or some other error possibly occurred.”
Trejo commented to LifeSiteNews, “There is a terror campaign against whistleblowers that is underway. We need to support whistleblowers as they fight to save our republic.”
“This vote steal is the most ghastly crime in U.S. history. We cannot let it stand. Officials are issuing these threats because they’re scared of getting caught.
