    With lawsuits pending charging multiple instances of voter fraud in the State of Michigan, now an eyewitness has come forward saying the vote tabulation machines in Detroit’s absentee-vote counting center were connected to the internet.

    Patrick Colbeck, a poll challenger and former Michigan state senator, has sworn out an affidavit stating that he witnessed the computers used to tabulate absentee ballot votes at the TCF Center in Detroit connected to the internet and transmitting and receiving data on Election Night.

    Colbeck stated in his affidavit that at approximately 11pm on November 3, he observed the Windows PC icon identifying an active internet connection on the screens of the computers being used to tabulate and process absentee ballots at TCF Center.

    Colbeck also stated the area had wireless routers set up with networks called “CPSStaff” and “AV_Counter.” He stated that these wireless routers were broadcasting and suggested that a computer security event that took place at 10am on Election Day could very well have been caused by the voting equipment’s connection to the internet.

    I was on the ground in Detroit at the AV Counting Board. I have evidence that suggests their computers were connected to the internet despite objections to that fact by top election officials. Why is this important?

    “All it takes to confirm the connectivity status of a Windows computer is to roll the cursor over the LAN connection icon in the bottom right corner of the display,” Colbeck’s sworn affidavit states. “When there is no internet connection, a unique icon showing a cross-hatched globe appears. I proceeded to review the terminal screens for the Tabulator and Adjudicator computers, and I observed the icon that indicates internet connection on each terminal. Other poll challengers can attest to this observation as required.”

    Another witness swearing out an affidavit about the internet connection, Barry Doherty – an expert in the field, having worked for Electronic Data Systems, explained that the computers being connected to the internet gave outside parties the ability to manipulate the tabulation counts

    Doherty added that the connectivity could also have given people outside of the facility a real-time read on what the vote tabulations were at any given moment.
