Judge Orders Election Do-Over as Voter Fraud Proved for 78% of Mail-In Ballots
Judge Jeff Weill orders new runoff election in Aberdeen, Mississippi - notary arrested
A judge has ordered a runoff election do-over in Mississippi after 78% of mail-in ballots were proved to be fraudulent, according to reports.
A notary official in Aberdeen, Monroe County, has also been arrested in connection with the mass voter fraud scam.
After hearing evidence of fraud and criminal activity, Judge Jeff Weill was forced to rule in favor of a new election.
In the sixty-four-page order, Judge Weill slammed the handling of absentee ballots by officials as he ordered a new election.
Weill blasted the actions by some at the polling place over how votes were counted, local news reports.
The race in question – a Democratic primary – occurred in Ward 1 for the position of alderman between candidates Robert Devaull and Nicholas Holliday.
Judge Weill called for the new election after hearing overwhelming evidence of voter fraud in the Democrat race, according to WCBI.
In his ruling, the judge said that sixty-six of eighty-four absentee ballots cast in the June runoff were not valid.
He ruled that the ballots should never have been counted.
Nicholas Holliday was declared the winner by a 37 vote margin.
Robert Devaull challenged the results in court.
Judge Weill found many irregularities with absentee ballots.
He issued a bench warrant for notary Dallas Jones, who notarized absentee ballots.
During a hearing, Jones admitted violating notary duties.
“When you have an absentee ballot, there’s an envelope, you vote, fold the ballot, put it in an envelope, lick the flap, sign across the flap, then notary signs your election certificate, she testified that she didn’t sign in front of anybody, didn’t see anybody sign it, she just notarized it, just stamped them,” said Lydia Quarles, attorney for Robert Devaull.
The judge’s ruling revealed that nearly 79 percent of the votes cast in the June runoff were fraudulent.
Jones, responsible for authorizing the fraudulent ballots, testified that she notarized “about 30 something ballots” at one house alone.
The investigation also found that 83 regular ballots were counted without being initialed by election workers.
“The court is of the opinion there is probable cause that several individuals involved in the disturbances during election day at the polling precinct ‘willfully and corruptly violated’ one or more of the above criminal statutes,” court filings state.
“The court will leave to the appropriate authorities to determine whether the actions of Maurice Howard, Henry Randle, and S. Nicholas Holliday amounted to prosecutable crimes.”
