(PatriotWise.com)- A Pennsylvania poll watcher on Wednesday said up to 120,000 votes cast in the presidential election should be analyzed for fraud.
Gregory Stenstrom, a poll watcher from Delaware County and a U.S Navy veteran, testified at a hearing in Gettysburg this week. When being questioned, Stenstrom said he was a former commanding officer for the Navy. He’s also a forensic computer scientist who has expertise on fraud and security issues.
He alleged that 47 USB cards that were used during Pennsylvania’s election on November 3 went missing. During his testimony Wednesday, Stenstrom said:
“I personally observed USB cards being uploaded to voting machines by the voting machine warehouse supervisor on multiple occasions. This person is not being observed. He’s not a part of the process that I can see, and he is walking in with baggies of USBs.”
The USBs are small cards that can store electronic data on. They are basically mini-hard drives that allow data to be transferred easily between one device to another one.
Stenstrom says he believes the USB cards could’ve been used to add some illegal votes to Pennsylvania’s counts. He also said there wasn’t proper oversight on how election workers in the state were handling ballots.
“In all cases, the chain of custody was broken. It was broken for the mail-in ballots, the drop-box ballots, the Election Day USB card flash drives. In all cases, they didn’t follow any of the procedures defined by the Board of Delaware County of Elections.”
Stenstrom said he reported the fact that some ballots were being mishandled. However, law enforcement didn’t act on his allegations. During his testimony, he said:
“I literally begged multiple law enforcement agencies to go get the forensic evidence from the computers. It’s a simple process. It wouldn’t have taken more than an hour to image all five machines. That was never done despite my objections, and that was three weeks ago.”
Wednesday’s hearing was arranged by state Republican leaders in Pennsylvania. It was meant to address all the allegations of voter fraud throughout the state. President-elect Joe Biden carried Pennsylvania in the president election, according to most media outlets. His margin of victory was less than 100,000 votes, though.
Pennsylvania just certified its election results on Tuesday, one day before this hearing was held. It is one of the key battleground states in the 2020 presidential election that the campaign for President Donald Trump has raised concerns about potential voter fraud.
For now, Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes are going toward the Democrat Biden. While there are still some legal actions pending, it doesn’t appear at this point as if anything is going to change in terms of the ultimate outcome.
On Wednesday, Marc Scaringi, a Trump campaign attorney, filed a letter with the Third Circuit Court of Appeals asking for oral arguments in an appeal of a lower court decision to dismiss their challenge of Pennsylvania’s certifying the state votes.
Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, attended Wednesday’s hearing.
