ALAMOGORDO, N.M. — On Thursday, the Otero County Commission voted to have an audit of ballots, tabulations, and other election measures in Otero County from the 2020 general election where President Donald J. Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden faced off.
Professor David Clements, who previously taught law at New Mexico State University, was joined by his wife, Erin Clements in testifying on the request for a county-wide audit of the 2020 election.
The County Commission voted 3-0 to have the audit with Commissioners Gerald Matherly, Vickie Marquardt, and Couy Griffin supporting the measure.
David Clements said, “We need the courageous three,” while testifying, referring to the three commissioners. He and Erin provided evidence rebutting the County Attorney and County Clerk’s concerns.
David Clements had an exchange with County Clerk Robin Holmes where Holmes claimed Dominion machines were not connected to the internet, in which Clements claimed they were, citing evidence.
“I know there’s fraud in the voter rolls, I can already see it,” said Erin Clements regarding New Mexico’s elections.
The County will provide $49,750 for the audit being contracted with EchoMail, an email management software company that is headed by Shiva Ayyadurai — a Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) graduate.
Only two precincts will need to be dealt with extra security precautions to avoid any violations of the Civil Rights Act.
Not a single Democrat or leftist was in the audience to testify against conducting an election audit in Otero County.
