I have been asked to publicize the findings of a small -- and, so far, nameless -- research group which is looking into the possibility that the 2016 election was rigged. They have found one county where the numbers strongly indicated fraud -- numbers that are difficult to explain away.
Welcome to scenic Outagamie County, in east-central Wisconsin, not far from Green Bay. Estimated population: About 180,000. Largest city: Appleton, home of the Wisconsin Institute of Urology and a haunted Dairy Queen on North Richmond Street. Unfortunately, that's not the only
unexplained phenonenon in this area.
In the words of my informant:
I've been working with a small data team going over the returns to look at machine v. paper voting and any inconsistencies there.
Today we found one: In Outagamie County, WI four precincts have more votes for President than ballots cast. One precinct - Hortonville - has more votes than registered voters.
ALL were machine-voting only.
The only paper-ballot precinct in that county...was won by HRC.
This is important. Others have stated that the Trump vote exceeds the exit polling only in those precincts where the vote is machine-only. In the battleground states, the exits and the "official" results tend to match in those areas where paper ballots are used.
If you go here
, you will see a striking map which demonstrates where the paper ballots were cast. The blue area corresponds to Appleton, which is the closest thing to a "big city" available in Outagamie County, even though it's not very large, as cities go. It looks as though someone "punched up" the population of the rest of the county in order to overwhelm the blue.
In the town of Hortonville, there are 1696 registered voters, yet 1949 votes were cast. The conversation here
explains why same-day registration does not explain this anomaly. (It seems that registration actually went down
According to the NYT, Trump beat Hillary by 27,257 votes in the state of Wisconsin -- a margin small enough to justify the term "razor thin." There are no automatic recounts in WI; any candidate can ask for a recount within three days of the announcement of the final tally. (Which has not happened yet: Trump is still listed as the "projected winner.")
Let us not leap to conspiratorial conclusions; at the same time, let us not be too quick to scoff at the idea of fraud. The fact that the sole paper-only precinct went for Hillary may
be significant -- but if you insist on being a "coincidence theorist," I cannot prove you wrong. Nevertheless, it is undeniably
significant that four precincts report more votes for President than ballots cast.
Granted, we are not talking about large numbers. But in rural areas, small and subtle shifts can create a Red Sea.
Please spread the word, folks: We need eyes on this story. I strongly suspect that Outagamie is not the only place where mysterious things occurred on election day.
