LANSING, Michigan, December 7, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) –A contractor for Dominion Voting Systems has testified that she witnessed systematic ballot fraud in Detroit that led to tens of thousands of false votes in last month’s presidential election.
Mellissa Carone, an IT and cybersecurity specialist, told members of the Michigan House
Oversight Committee at a voter fraud hearing, “Democrats took every avenue possible to commit fraud in this election.”
Carone worked at Detroit’s TCF Center on Election Day and the day after, where she said that she had observed “at least 30,000” ballots counted more than once. “What I saw on [November 3 and 4] was over 20 counts of fraud being taken place in front of my face,” Carone stated.
She had signed an affidavit on November 10, swearing to the charges that she outlined on Wednesday. In her affidavit, Carone attested to having “witnessed countless workers rescanning” jammed ballots “without discarding them first which resulted in ballots being counted 4-5 times.” She said that vote tabulators at TCF Center “would get jammed 4-5 times an hour” and that votes may have been brought in by vans that “pulled into the garage of the counting room.”
Some batches of ballots were “counted over 8 times,” Carone related. “Instead of discarding, they were just rescanning, rescanning, rescanning, counting ballots nine to 10 times,” she told lawmakers.
“I called my manager to a specific tabulating machine and I showed him a number on it that was over 500. They shouldn’t be over 50. Ballots come in batches of 50,” Carone added. When Carone brought up the “severe problem” of extra ballot counting to her boss, he reportedly told her, “‘Melissa I don’t want to hear that we have a problem, we are here to assist with IT, we are not here to run their election.’”
“They were cheating,” Carone said. “It was very, very apparent.”
“You know, Dominion won't come before this committee,” the chairman of the Michigan House Oversight Committee noted. “I've asked them, so far, they've refused and I do want them to come… because we need answers from them about how their voting machines work.”
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!

President Trump’s legal team has stated that “many Dominion employees have already reached out,” some “admitting that they were trained how to dispose of Trump votes and add to Biden votes.” The Trump team also linked “massive spikes” of votes to Dominion agents in Detroit “after hours.”
At multiple points during Wednesday’s hearing, Carone forcefully rebutted challenges from
Michigan representatives, like when Republican Rep. Steven Johnson pressed her about fraudulent votes.
After Johnson said that Michigan poll books generally reflected recorded votes, Carone responded, “look again.”
“We're not seeing the poll book off by 30,000 votes,” Johnson told her. “What did you guys do, take it and do something crazy to it?” she fired back.
“I know what I saw,” Carone said, “and I signed something saying if I’m wrong, I can go to prison. Did you?…I'd say that poll book is off by over a hundred thousand,” she declared.
When asked by the chairman why more whistleblowers weren’t coming forward with fraud claims, she answered, “I'll tell you why. My life has been destroyed. My life has been completely destroyed because of this.”
“I've lost family. I've lost friends. I've been threatened, my kids have been threatened. I've had to move. I've had to change my phone number. I've had to get rid of social media,” she continued.
“I can't even get an actual job anymore. I can't because Democrats like to ruin your lives.”
While one representative mentioned that a Michigan judge had called Carone’s account “not credible,” based on other affidavits, a Detroit poll challenger testified to similar allegations on Tuesday. She told Michigan senators that election workers used fake voter information to “override the system and allow them to enter nonregistered voters,” circumventing poll books. She said that ballots were copied repeatedly, “all for Biden across the board.”
In the past week videos of Carone’s testimonies have “gone viral” online with tens of millions of views across social media platforms. She has since become the subject of ridicule in some quarters of the media. Last week the Daily Mail reported that she was sentenced to 12 months of probation for a “computer crime” in September 2019, although details of the crime are not given.
But President Trump celebrated Carone’s testimony yesterday, tweeting “Melissa is great!”
