MICHIGAN—CHERYL A. COSTANTINO AND EDWARD P.
MCCALL, JR Cheryl A. Costantino alone with Edward P. McCall, Jr. have filed an action in a Wayne County Michigan Court raising “numerous issues of fraud and misconduct that occurred in order to protect the rights of all voters in Michigan, especially Wayne County.
Constantino and McCall also raised issues of fraud and misconduct that
occurred in order to protect the rights of all voters in Michigan, especially Wayne County during the 2020 Presidential Election.
The Complaint’s Allegations raised against the City of Detroit, Detroit Election Requested Commission, Janice M. Winfrey in her official capacity as the Clerk of the File No: 20–AW City of Detroit and the Chairperson of the Detroit Election Commission, Judge Cathy M. Garrett, in her official capacity as the Clerk of Wayne County, and the Wayne County Board of Canvassers, states that they:
- systematically processed and counted ballots from voters whose name failed to appear in either the Qualified Voter File (QVF) or in the supplemental sheets. When a voter’s name could not be found, the election worker assigned the ballot to a random name already in the QVF to a person who had not voted.
- instructed election workers to not verify signatures on absentee ballots, to backdate absentee ballots, and to process such ballots regardless of their validity.
- after election officials announced the last absentee ballots had been received, another batch of unsecured and unsealed ballots, without envelopes, arrived in trays at the TCF Center. There were tens of thousands of these absentee ballots, and apparently every ballot was counted and attributed only to Democratic candidates.
- instructed election workers to process ballots that appeared after the
election deadline and to falsely report that those ballots had been received prior to November 3, 2020 deadline.
- systematically used false information to process ballots, such as using
incorrect or false birthdays. Many times, the election workers inserted new names into the QVF after the election and recorded these new voters as having a birthdate of 1/1/1900.
- On a daily basis leading up to the election, City of Detroit election workers and 4 Great Lakes Justice Center employees coached voters to vote for Joe Biden and the Democrat party. These workers and employees encouraged voters to do a straight Democrat ballot. These
election workers and employees went over to the voting booths with voters in order to watch them vote and coach them for whom to vote.
- Unsecured ballots arrived at the TCF Center loading garage, not in sealed ballot boxes, without any chain of custody, and without envelopes.
- election officials and workers refused to record challenges to their
processes and removed challengers from the site if they politely voiced a challenge.
- After poll challengers started discovering the fraud taking place at the TCF Center, Defendant election officials and workers locked credentialed challengers out of the counting room so they could not observe the process, during which time tens of thousands of ballots were processed.
- election officials and workers allowed ballots to be duplicated by hand
without allowing poll challengers to check if the duplication was accurate. In fact, election officials and workers repeatedly obstructed poll challengers from observing. Defendants permitted thousands of ballots to be filled out by hand and duplicated on site without oversight from poll challengers.
In support of Constantino and McCall filing that submitted to the Courts an eyewitness affidavit submitted by Robert Cushman, a poll challenger in Wayne County Mr. Cushman further stated under oath that “at approximately 7:30pm on November 3, 2020, about 50% of Poll Workers left the AV Counting Board before 8pm in violation of MCL 168.792a(l l). An announcement was made by Detroit Election Officials at 7:45pm calling them back but most had already left the AV Counting Board area.
Cushman described “the results of this observation are captured in the
attached network topology diagram. The IT technician stationed on the stage actively discouraged any close-up observation of the network. Phone usage ban discouraged taking photographs of equipment. There were no observed ethernet connections for Electronic Poll Books at AV Counting Boards, but Wi-Fi Routers were present with attached active Wi-Fi
networks in area including one called “AV_ Connect” and a separate one for “CPS Staff” which were both of sufficient signal strength to be accessed outside of the Counting Board as well as inside. I did not confirm presence of internet connection for Electronic Poll Books but the “security incident” at 1 0am on 11/3 would seem to indicate that they were connected to internet via Wi-Fi.
The state has an interest in ensuring the integrity of ballots should
it be needed. This specific interest is properly served by this regulation, as in the event of suspected voter fraud, the court may reveal the identity of the voter and a determination can be made. Overall, the burden imposed on voters’ rights is minimal, and the legislation is within the scope of the state’s interest in preserving the purity of elections, further added Constantino and McCall.
The Republicans have filed three lawsuits over Michigan’s vote count, this one filed in Wayne County Circuit Court and alleging problems with the counting process at TCF Center in Detroit.
Cushman’s affidavit is a type of verified statement or showing, or in other words, it contains a verification, allegations under oath or penalty of perjury, and this serves as evidence to its veracity and is required for court proceedings in Wayne County.
