Michigan Voting Machines Were Online: Affidavit


A poll watcher said voting machines used in a Detroit vote-counting center appeared to have been connected to the internet, which makes them vulnerable to remote manipulation.

That’s according to a sworn affidavit signed by former Republican state senator and governor candidate Patrick Colbeck. He is also an aerospace engineer.

Colbeck was a poll watcher on Election Day at TCF Center in Detroit. That’s where absentee-votes were counted.

His affidavit is part of a lawsuit brought against local election officials.

A judge recently ruled that Colbeck’s account has “no evidence.” The plaintiff has appealed.

A photo Colbeck said he took at the vote-counting center on Election Day shows wireless routers.

He said his phone also detected wireless networks in the area.
