Poll challengers working at the TCF Center in Detroit where hundreds of thousands of absentee ballots in Michigan were processed by workers who refused to allow Republican poll challengers to challenge or in many cases even view the votes are starting to boldly step forward and tell their stories. These brave volunteers, who stepped up and entered a what many, including myself, would describe as a third-world like absentee ballot voting process aren’t just telling their stories on Facebook or Twitter, they’re signing sworn affidavits.

Epoch Times reports – Thousands of mail-in ballots from people who weren’t properly registered to vote were added to vote counts in Detroit, Michigan, a poll watcher alleged in a sworn affidavit.

Robert Cushman of Michigan said he observed the illegal activity when serving as a poll challenger in Detroit’s TCF Center where votes from Wayne County were counted.

His affidavit is among several attached to a lawsuit filed against Wayne County and Detroit on Nov. 8 by the Great Lakes Justice Center, a conservative-leaning nonprofit.

The suit asks the court to order “an independent and non-partisan audit” of the election, prevent the city and county from destroying evidence or certifying the election results or counting more votes until the suit is heard, order a new election, and other relief.


According to the affidavit, Cushman was told that military ballots will be counted last, but when those were finished, he “was surprised to see numerous new boxes of ballots arrive” on the evening of Nov. 4.

Operators at several counting tables he observed were supposed to check the names on mail-in ballot packages against the electronic poll book. If the name didn’t come up, they were supposed to check for the name in the supplemental sheets, where, Cushman understood, there were voters who had registered in the prior few days.

Yet the names on the new ballot packages were neither in the poll book nor on the sheets, he said. The operators were simply adding the names and addresses to the poll book with made-up birth dates, such as 1-1-1900.

“When I asked what the possible justification was to counting ballots from unknown, unverified ‘persons,’ I was told by election supervisors that the Wayne County Clerk’s Office had ‘checked them out,’” he said.

He was told the instruction to enter fraudulent birth dates came from the Wayne County Clerk’s Office, he said.

The Wayne County Clerk’s Office didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Cushman said he’d already filed a challenge onsite, asking one election official to help him.

“I said that I did not want to challenge just one ballot, but the entire process, as I was witnessing several thousand ballots inputted illegally,” he said.

These ballots were processed between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m., he said.

I was a poll challenger at TCF Center and encountered the same exact scenario at the table where I was stationed to watch the vote. I was bullied, threatened and repeatedly warned to stand back 6 feet away from the table by paid election workers sitting at the table and by an outside agitator positioned behind two workers where military ballots were being duplicated. Strangely, the “independent” poll challenger who repeatedly shouted at me to stand back from the table, appeared to have no interest in watching the duplication process, but instead, was singularly focused on distracting and harassing me and the other Independent poll challenger.

The lawsuit included several other affidavits making further allegations.

Jessy Jacob, a city of Detroit employee, signed an affidavit saying she was instructed to backdate mail ballots and not to look for any deficiencies with the ballots.

She said she was told not to ask for identification when voters arrived to vote in person.

She further alleged that she “directly observed, on a daily basis, City of Detroit election workers and employees coaching and trying to coach voters to vote for Joe Biden and the Democrat party.”

“I witnessed these workers and employees encouraging voters to do a straight Democrat ballot,” her affidavit said. “I witnessed these election workers and employees going over to the voting booths with voters in order to watch them vote and coach them for whom to vote.”

Poll watcher Andrew Sitto said tens of thousands of ballots arrived in Wayne County around 4:30 a.m. Of the ballots from this batch he saw being processed, all were for Biden.

Other poll watchers told him the ballots arrived in “several vehicles with out-of-state license plates,” his affidavit said.

Poll watcher Daniel Gustafson said the ballots arrived in mail boxes with open tops and no seals.


Yet another poll watcher affidavit alleged voting machines used in Wayne County appeared to have been connected to the internet.

President Trump had a lead of over 300,000 when a van pulled into the TCF Center around 3 am, filled with an estimated 59-60 boxes filled with absentee ballots waiting to be tabulated. After the new boxes of absentee ballots were tabulated, Biden obtained a huge lead over President Trump.
