Now Democrats and Dominion are trying to stop the election audit going on in Otero County New Mexico.
Yahoo reported last week:
The House Oversight Committee is launching an investigation into a partisan ballot review in Otero County, New Mexico, where a self-proclaimed “audit force” is going door to door and questioning voters.
The county, which borders Texas and has about 67,000 residents, agreed this year to pay nearly $50,000 to EchoMail, one of the subcontractors involved in Arizona’s partisan ballot review, to review its 2020 election results.
“The Committee is investigating whether your company’s audit and canvass in New Mexico illegally interferes with Americans’ right to vote by spreading disinformation about elections and intimidating voters,” House Oversight Committee Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., and Jamie Raskin, D-Md., the chairman of the subcommittee on civil rights and civil liberties, wrote in a Wednesday letter addressed to V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai, the founder of EchoMail.
Despite the Democrats’ and Dominion’s concerns, the audit goes forward.
Erin Clements of the forensic election audit going on in Otero County, NM joined CAT Chats with the latest news on the progress of the audit. She detailed harassment from ‘operatives’ and from the SOS, Maggie Toulouse Oliver, the State Auditor, Brian Colon, and the AG, Hector Balderas.
Clements noted that the county audit was in three primary areas:
- Work related to the ballot images created during the 2020 Election
- Work related to the operational aspects of the audit, like chain of custody and more.
- A Canvassing effort to review the voter rolls in the state.
She also noted that Dr. Shiva is behind the part of the audit involving the ballot images.
Ms. Clements shared the following in her interview below when asked whether the auditors were able to look at the Dominion machines:
Well, the County Commission obviously should have the power to look at them because they have to certify the results of the elections… But the County Commission got a threat, one of many threatening letters from the Secretary of State’s office, saying that if you touch anything, we’re going to decommission them and make you buy new ones.
