• The Dominion-Democrat con

    From MATTHEW MUNSON@VERT/IUTOPIA to All on Wednesday, November 11, 2020 11:08:00
    To begin our examination of the Dominion-Democrat connection, we start at the top with
    ownership and leadership. 2014 saw Dominion Voting partner with the Clinton Foundation on the DELIAN project which aimed to address the issue that "emerging
    democracies suffer from post-electoral violence due to the delay in the publishing of
    election results." A year later, Dominion donated between $25,000 and $50,000 to the
    Clinton Foundation. In 2018, Dominion was acquired by members of its management
    team and Staple Street Capital. At the top of the board of directors of Staple Street sits
    William Kennard, Ambassador to the EU under Obama and FCC Chief under Clinton. Both
    co-founders of Staple Street Capital, Stephen Owens and Hootan Yaghoobzadeh, previously worked in senior leadership for the Carlyle Group. The group's major
    investors have included George Soros and the Bin Laden family.

    When determining the political leanings of an organization, one can examine individual
    contributions to obtain part of the picture. During the past election cycle, Dominion
    employees made 92 contributions, 88 of which were to Democrat organizations and the
    remaining four for President Trump all originating from one person (Diedra Lazenby).
    With the exception of Mykale Garret (whom we will address later in depth and whose
    level of access is unknown), all Democrat donors would have direct access to the voting
    software according to their job description on their LinkedIn profiles:

    Paul Chavez-Casanova made two donations to Democrat organizations, one of which was
    for $250 to the DNC. According to his LinkedIn profile, he has worked for Dominion for
    ten years and is a senior software developer.

    Samuel McGraw made 58 donations (Part 1 Part 2) to liberal causes, 51 to ActBlue and
    seven to Bernie Sanders. According to his LinkedIn profile, he has worked at Dominion
    since April 2018 as a network engineer.

    Tomas Bellinhausen made 21 donations, all to ActBlue. According to his LinkedIn profile,
    he has worked for Dominion since October 2019 as a software product specialist.

    Nicholas Coudsy made three donations to ActBlue. According to the cached Google
    search result for his now deleted LinkedIn profile, he is an implementation specialist/project manager for Dominion. Dates of employment are unknown.

    Melissa Romero made two donations, both to ActBlue. According to her LinkedIn profile,
    she has worked for Dominion since February 2014 and is now a senior manager/project
    manager.

    Mykale (Kelly) Garrett presents the most interesting case of entanglement between
    Dominion and the Democratic machine. During the past year, Ms. Garrett made four
    donations to ActBlue. According to her LinkedIn page, Ms. Garrett worked for Dominion
    from May 2017 to November 2019 while she simultaneously served as mayor pro tem
    (until November 2017), mayor (November 2017-current) and city council member (November 2011-current) in Lathrup Village (located in Oakland County), Michigan. As
    her location while employed with Dominion is listed as remote, one cannot say where
    her work occurred or even why she held the position with her concurrent responsibilities
    in two government jobs. Immediately after leaving Dominion, she became deputy director of the Oakland County Michigan Democratic Party, a title she held until May
    2020.

    Oakland County may sound familiar due to it being the site of the most notable computer "glitch" in the recent election where several thousand absentee votes were
    discovered to have been counted twice. A total of 6133 of 38792 (15.8%) votes were
    double counted and initially resulted in a victory of 104 votes for the Democratic
    candidate. After correction, the Republican candidate secured a victory of 1127 votes.

    While nothing contained in this article proves any direct evidence of fraud, it
    demonstrates potential motive and opportunity and provides connections between a
    controversial voting machine company and a democrat balloting apparatus, both of
    which find themselves at the center of attention for lawsuits and challenges to November
    voting results.
