‘Potential crime scene’: Otero County audit finds shocking evidence

On Monday, the Otero County Commission held a special meeting on the 2020 election audit sanctioned by the County, which found some interesting results from the canvass. Included in those results was the revelation that of the 22% of the County canvassed, 41% of those had issues, including 30% who didn’t live at the address (while 40% of those voted in the election), 4% of doors knocked were “ghost votes,” and 2% of the votes were dropped. 

Erin Clements, who was one of the main organizers overseeing the audit through the New Mexico Audit Force, said these results had a margin of error of 4%, and results from the canvass did not have wild variations from day to day suggesting a consistent pattern. Erin Clements said, “These numbers did not change from weekend to weekend,” adding, “We out-sampled them by leaps and bounds.”

Erin Clements was joined by her husband, David Clements, and expert witness Jeffrey Lendberg, who was involved in finding apparent fraudulent activity in Antrim County, Michigan, during the 2020 election. Lendberg has been helping with the data side of the audit after Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai of EchoMail, Inc. was intimidated out of participating in the audit by “threats from up high” from Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives. 

David Clements opened up his testimony on the apparent fraud by saying, “We’re told that the Lord abhors inaccurate weights and measures. What we’re finding is inaccuracy after inaccuracy after inaccuracy.” He added, “You have a potential crime scene in Otero County.” 

Clements said, “It appears you’re being held at gunpoint.” He said the County is a casualty of “lawfare” from “Congress and a bunch of operatives.”

Lendberg echoed David Clements’ sentiments, saying, “If you even question election integrity, you get canceled.” 

There were project files missing for the 2020 election in Otero County, according to Lendberg. The voting machine company, Dominion Voting Systems, came out to “service” the units in June 2021, according to Otero County Clerk Robyn Holmes. Lendberg concluded that Dominion “definitely had the possibility of erasing stuff.” 

Lendberg also noted how models of Dominion machines in Otero County had the capabilities of remote access from outside sources. He said manufacturers, such as Dominion “have led people to believe they don’t have that capability.” But they do have this capability, according to evidence provided by the Clements.

Lendberg also noted that the Otero County audit found a feature within Dominion machines that would allow ballots to be filled out by the machine itself.

The Clements’ and Lendberg’s presentation noted smoking-gun evidence of ballots being left unsecured in the neighboring county of Doña Ana, where elections in New Mexico are known to flip in the dead of night from Republicans to Democrats, as evidenced by 2018’s Second District U.S. House of Representatives election and 2020’s District 53 election where Otero County Clerk Holmes accepted absentee ballots from Doña Ana after the election which swung the results in Democrat Willie Madrid’s favor. 

Other evidence presented included voter registration trends by date which showed that Democrats, Republicans, and Declined to State voters all mysteriously had the same patterns in registrations, which is impossible. As well, Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver’s emails showed she corresponded with left-wing activist Catharine Clark and her staffer, Alex Curtas, who received internal numbers from the polling places. The final numbers of votes were way off from those that were shared internally at the Secretary of State’s office. Finally, election day votes in multiple counties disappeared and then reappeared on Election Day, with 20% gains in the vote in a matter of 12 minutes. 

Lendberg and the Clements noted how the only way to fix these large abnormalities is to return to counting of paper ballots from precinct to precinct, removing ballot drop boxes, and strengthening security measures. According to David Clements, returning to hand-counted paper ballots is already happening in multiple Nevada counties.

The Clements will present the evidence found in Otero County from the ballot image matches at a subsequent meeting of the Otero County Commission.

    As a battle-scarred cynic at this point, my only question is…what will be done about it? Not holding my breath.

    Amen, talk is cheap. Do something or shut up! Do the counties have authority to switch to paper ballots and do away with the machines because that is the only solution.

    1. They currently use paper ballots. The Dominions are the tabulating machines which count the paper ballots.

      1. Nancy Tannenbaum

        Yes, however, once the paper ballots are fed into the Dominion machines, that is where machines which have been re-calibrated flip the votes. Also, what happens with the machines once the building is closed to the voting public? In other words, we should know by now that the process has been corrupted and trust has been thoroughly violated.

        1. As a pollworker for over 25 years, I can tell you nothing is happening after the polling locations are closed to the public. As a pollworker, we have no ability to alter whatever function the tabulator has been programed to do. If something is happening with the Dominions, it is being done in the certification process, after the tabulators are moved to their storage locations, or remotely. We also need to remember that our elections are run by the government.

          1. Nancy Tannenbaum

            With the now-proven massive fraud during the national election via Dominion voting machines and ‘discovered’ fraudulent mail-in paper ballots which of course includes voting fraud here in NM, your point is unclear to me. However – carry on!

          2. Not sure why you would be so sure nothing is happening to the ballots after hours? Unless you’re guarding a cache of ballots all night, how would you know who or what happens to them? If someone wanted to do something illegal with the ballots, do you think they would make an announcement? People doing criminal activities tend to keep it on the down low.
            Now on the machine issues that are widely known and have demonstrated security vulnerabilities that can’t be completely secured or monitored.
            The only way to eliminate the security issues with computer based machines is to stop using them.
            Right now in Otero county, it appears the machines are capable of changing votes and making simulated human pen marks.. Those functions and capabilities should never be available.
            And when you say the elections are run by the government, you know from the hearing that is not the case. The county let’s dominion run the machines with full control and they don’t have to be in the presence of witnesses and can remotely log into the machines with no witnesses again. No one is allowed to check the secret programs and login records.
            The company that does a so called certification is a direct subcontractor of Dominion.
            The Democratic NGO companies that actually have full live access to the voting counts with remote access were not doing that for fun, that was for managing and calculating how many ballots were needed to keep a healthy and safe margin for their preferred candidate. And the data showing the ballot dumps spiking Biden’s votes every time Trump was leading was too obvious to miss.
            No rational person would look at this embarrassing situation and say, all is okay.

  3. Have you guys heard about Mesa County, CO? It’s the very same thing that happened to you guys… If you want all the gory details about your voting machines, read the reports for Mesa County. The county clerk made a forensic image of the Dominion Election System, before and after and had them analyzed by experts. You will be shocked. If you have any question, the answers are in these reports:

    1. Yes I have kept up with Mesa County, We are in a fight for our country and if we don’t fix this we are no longer a free country. The manager at the polling station confirmed to me they are connected to the internet. They have changed the votes here just like they did all across the country with these machines. And don’t forget the drop boxes and the mules. 2000mules.com watch it.

    The Alamogordo Daily News ran the headline “Forensic audit finds no election fraud in Otero County”. What a bunch of garbage. The media from national to local is either completely corrupted or completely inept.

    The sad part is that most people locally will see that headline, assume it to be true and then forget about it.

  5. Idiots you used our tax dollars for this Clerks office has always done a good job keeping our elections clean. Give us our money back Next time you Commissioners want to use that much of our tax dollars let the voters decide what our money needs to be spent on Our Commission is where the problems are one of them wants to be re-elected on honesty the other took tax payers money let’s fix where the problem s really are

  6. There are several news stories concerning this topic.
    Election audits should not be partisan.
    “Election ‘Vigilante’ Group Posing as County Workers, Says New Mexico’s State Auditor”
    “Analysis: No election fraud detected so far in messy Otero County audit.”
    Searching the title should render a link easily.
    If you are reading less than 3 news sources and not access international/ oppositional new sources, you are a convert not a critic.
