The onslaught of Donald Trump’s legal team that tries to annul the results of the presidential election on November 3 now has a new figure: Melissa Carone, a self-defined witness to the alleged massive fraud who insists on denouncing the Republican campaign and who worked on the recount election in Michigan.
Carone was a worker hired by Dominion Voting Systems, which supplied voting machines in various Michigan districts and other states, and which President Trump has unfoundedly singled out as part of a scheme to steal votes from him and assign them to Joe Biden.
Like Attorney Powell, Carone has made reckless assertions for which she provides no evidence.
The way she made her statements in a Michigan House of Representatives hearing this week made her a hit – for other reasons – on social media, with numerous Twitter users comparing her to characters in the comedy. Saturday Night Live played by actress Victoria Jackson.
What Carone says
Carone asserts that on Election Day he worked a 24-hour shift at the Detroit vote count, providing computer support to Dominion machines at the TCF Center where the vote counting took place.
In an affidavit filed Nov. 10, the contractor claimed to have seen that some ballots had been scanned multiple times and suggested that the trucks intended to bring food to the poll workers were actually hiding tens of thousands of ballots.
His affidavit was included in a lawsuit filed by the Trump campaign that sought to challenge the results in Wayne County.
That county judge, Timothy Kenny, denied the petition on Nov. 13, saying the “interpretation of events by Carone and other witnesses is incorrect and not credible.”
A bipartisan committee certified Joe Biden’s victory over Trump in the state on November 23 by more than 155,000 votes.
Facing the Republicans
Still this Wednesday, along with Giuliani, Carone appeared before a panel of the Michigan House of Representatives and insisted on vague accusations of vote counting and manipulation of results, again without showing a single piece of evidence.
Carone was questioned by Steve Johnson, a Republican representative from Michigan, as she tried to get to the bottom of her allegations of voter fraud.
“Everything that happened at the TCF Center was fraud,” Carone stated. “Every thing”, and in a haughty attitude he dedicated himself to quarreling with Johnson, who was trying to explain how the process works.
Carone constantly interrupted, raised his voice and did not stop speaking, as seen in a video that captured the moment and has already been reproduced more than nine million times. At one point, Giuliani himself, next to him, approaches him to pat him as a signal to stop talking.
Carone, again without evidence, insisted that tens of thousands of ballots were counted twice.
“I’m just saying that the numbers are not bad for 30,000 votes,” Johnson replied, trying to get his interlocutor to hear him.
“What did they do, take it and make it crazy?” Carone replied to add that there were “zero registered voters” in the Wayne County book and that 100,000 fraudulent votes had been cast.
And he insisted: “Dead people voted and the illegals voted,” he always insisted on presenting any evidence to support his accusations.
Another representative present on the panel suggested that he should be “under oath” during his presentation. Then Carone said: “I am a mother, I have two children, I have two degrees … I don’t know any woman in the world who would write an affidavit just for writing it. You can go to jail for this.”
After this appearance, Carone said that Trump’s critics had ruined the lives and reputations of witnesses like her. He claims that he has received threats, that he has broken up with his family and friends and has been forced to change his phone number and close his social media accounts. On Facebook, he has expressed his support for Trump many times.
