‘Shocking’ Fraud on Video Prompts Judge to Toss Election Outcome in Connecticut’s Largest City

State of Connecticut Official Ballot Drop Box

Just days before a scheduled general election in Connecticut’s largest city, a judge threw out the results of a primary election for mayor, citing “shocking” evidence of voter fraud caught on video.

Democrats’ September primary in Bridgeport, Connecticut, pitted incumbent Mayor Joe Ganim against challenger John Gomes, the city’s former chief administrative officer. Gomes at first appeared to have won, but after absentee ballots were counted, Ganim won by 251 votes out of 8,173 cast, The Associated Press reported

A surveillance camera showed individuals stuffing multiple absentee ballots into a ballot dropbox at night. Lawyers for the city of Bridgeport argued that it didn’t prove illegal voting took place. 

However, Connecticut Superior Court Judge William Clark disagreed.  

 

“The videos are shocking to the court and should be shocking to all the parties,” Clark wrote in his ruling Wednesday. 

The judge added that “to disregard the significant mishandling of ballots by partisans that were caught on video flouting the provisions of Connecticut law” would “endorse this blatant practice of ballot harvesting.” 

As explained in my book “The Myth of Voter Suppression: The Left’s Assault on Clean Elections,” ballot harvesting and mail-in voting have been the chief avenues of adjudicated cases of voter fraud. The book details how a congressional election in North Carolina and a mayor’s race in Miami, as well as local races in IllinoisCalifornia, and Texas, were overturned after ballot harvesting scandals were revealed. 

The Associated Press reported that Bridgeport voters still will vote in the general election Nov. 7, but will have to return at a later date for a new primary election to pick the rightful Democrat nominee for mayor.

The judge said he lacked the authority to postpone or cancel the general election. 

In this heavily Democrat city, the party’s primary likely would determine the winner of the mayor’s race. A Republican candidate for mayor, David Herz, and an independent, Lamond Daniels, are also on the Tuesday ballot. 

“The volume of ballots so mishandled is such that it calls the result of the primary election into serious doubt and leaves the court unable to determine the legitimate result of the primary,” Clark wrote in his ruling.

Ganim, the incumbent mayor, rallied supporters to turn out on Election Day to “send a powerful message that we want to keep the progress going in Bridgeport.”

Gomes called the judge’s ruling “a victory for the people of Bridgeport,” and said, “Our campaign always believed that the integrity of our democratic process must be upheld and Superior Court Judge William Clark agreed.”

The court case shows the need for more election reforms, said Connecticut state Senate Minority Leader Kevin Kelly, a Republican. 

“Judge Clark saw what the rest of us saw on the videos: absentee ballot box stuffing in Bridgeport where 1,255 ballots were deposited by only 420 individuals,” Kelly said in a public statement. “In video after video, we saw dubious and repeated absentee ballot box dumping involving multiple people.” 

One of those identified as stuffing ballots into the dropbox reportedly is a Ganim supporter and former vice chairwoman of the Bridgeport Democratic Town Committee. She asserted her Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate herself in court.

Well, well, well, finally a judge that actually looks at the evidence. Unfortunately, there wasn’t a judge interested in the evidence that would prove that Old Joe is not the legally elected president.

To democrats, “voter suppression” means they weren’t allowed to vote as many times as they wanted.

Yeah like all of us think that Biden won more votes than Obama, NOT in this lifetime. Same thing in 2020,and also caught on camera, but all they can say it was a legitimate election, I will NEVER believe that.

Has anyone ever thought about the courts knowing that voting was irregular but were afraid to have it exposed because of the consequences to society? Once Biden was sworn in, can you imagine what would have happened would it be discovered that the election was a farce? Perhaps they are concerned about the reaction from society, the volatility of the scenario. Hope I am making sense. Curious about others thoughts on the subject.

In person Voter I.D. has to be required, Drop boxes have to be outlawed and electronic voting machines also have to be outlawed. Only paper ballots counted on election day and this would bring back secure elections This judge needs some 24 hour protection from the Democraps now.

Good job Judge Clark. Ballot Harvesting and Ballot Drop Boxes should be illegal.
This case shows how corrupt and dishonest the Left is. It also shows how the 2020 Presidential election was rigged with Election Fraud by illegal ballots put in in the middle of the night after they quit counting across the country in Democrat run states at 10:30pm and waited till 8:30am the next morning to finish counting ballots that were brought in by ballot drop boxes with harvest ballots from loaded trucks and loaded vehicles.
To add that Democrat run states illegally and unconstitutionally changed voting laws including their state constitution just days before 2020 election time.
Thank you Judge Clark for following the law and Constitution since convict judge chutkan apparently doesn’t follow the law and Constitution.

Actually think it’s rather humorous, not to mention ironic, that the Dems are doing this to their own people, not just another party (i.e., GOP). Shows the reality of the kind of people they truly choose to be.

In our last election we had many instances of people stuffing the ballot box but it was ignored. I’m so glad they’re Paying attention with this election. If only we can get them to do this next time or demand in person voting

Put a security camera on every ballot box. End mail in ballots. Restore honest elections.
It is so encouraging that someone somewhere does have standards.

I can’t say that the theft of the integrity of our elections would have changed the outcome between Biden and Trump but it did exist! And the parameters were set to let it happen with all the mail in ballots. That is not the way fair and free elections should be held no matter the political party. Election day should be a holiday, where no businesses open where there are polling places convenient to everyone and we should know the results that night all the American people ever wanted was to have it looked into.

I can’t even imagine how much cheating will take place in next year’s presidential election especially if President Trump is the nominee for the republican ticket. God help us!!

Yep just like the ballots hidden under tables and pulled out after making people leave claiming a water main burst and watching that tape showing someone feeding a voting machine twice with the same stack of ballots. In another state there was a story of premarket ballots being taken to facilities where residents of those places were asked just to sign their names. 2020 the year of cheating!

And what will stop another fraudulent election like 2020? We know the truth. I still say voter ID for everyone with the results the same day. Has anyone done anything to ensure that history will not repeat itself?

It’s funny how the liberal Trolls pop up every time when the AMAC articles and AMAC Members tell the TRUTH.
Liberal Trolls are derogatory, childish, hateful, and Braindead with their comments. No wonder they belong to the Socialist/Communist, Fascist, Loser WOKE party that’s financed by Soros who was a NAZIS Party member and helped murder Jews.

People need to wake up to the fact that the Democrat Party is the party of corruption, illegality, immorality and unethical behavior and that it needs to be rejected unless society is to adopt these as the new justice. The costs are unsustainable and government has become a mockery and a farce. There is nothing “elite” about this kind of irrational thinking and behavior and such choices and such elections are worthless and do nothing to benefit society or to maintain an establishment of justice which fulfills the other provisions that are purposes of the Constitution of the United States. Nothing proves the fraudulence of the election of 2020 more than the consequences of the policies which have been allowed or implemented since Biden took office on January 20, 2021. Consider the costs!!

Wow, a tiny bright light at the very far end of the tunnel. Maybe the outdoor ballot boxes should be closed after a certain time. At the very least every ballot box must be video monitored and the video should be archived for a minimum amount of time. A person should not be able to deposit more than four ballots unless they are taken in person to a legal collection site.
