In her letter published Jan. 14, Carolyn Williamson made multiple assertions basically supported by her watching “hours of public testimony before state legislatures.” She even spoke of requests made to Mike Pence from state legislators, who himself would certainly would have benefited from a different result in the past election.

She then made claims of how this past election was handled differently in the past alluding to Democrats being given an unfair advantage. She certainly is comfortable ignoring and dismissing the recent history of the popular vote.

Her final assertion was prefaced by the infamous “one anonymous whistle blower” (maybe curveball) to state, “All that needed to be done was allow an audit of the machines in question and a true examination of the ballots.” The MTV generation must have switched channels to Fox News!

There have been no findings of widespread fraud in any state during the 2020 elections. And it would take a very large commission of fraud to overturn the election.

Trump’s own election security agency declared the 2020 presidential election to have been the most secure in history. Trump's own appointed judges found no problems with this election multiple times. There were audits and recounts galore in Republican-run states, none which came close to changing the result of this past election. Finally, there are media companies preparing to defend themselves in court for reporting erroneous and misleading stories about the voting machines in question.

Carolyn Williamson: Regarding your claim there were more votes cast in Pennsylvania than actual voters, I suggest you may be wrong. I suspect you are quite handy with the internet, thus I encourage you to examine the info regarding your claim at the following websites: snopes.com (11-5-20); politifact.com (11-23-20); statesman.com (11-26-20); snopes.com (11-27-20); Reuters.com (12-4-20); snopes.com (12-29-20); apnews.com (12-29-20); pennlive.com (12-29-20); mcall.com (1-1-21); inquirer.com (1-6-21). Each of these sites discusses your claim at length, how it originated, who started it, and the flaw in the claim. I suggest you read them thoroughly. I’m not alleging you have personally falsified this claim - only that you may be relying on faulty information. Could I be wrong? Possibly. Could you be wrong? Probably.

Yes, I saw the statements that this analysis was based on incomplete data. In my opinion if they were truly trying to de-bunk the analysis then the correct data should have been released or used to de-bunk the analysis. It's January. Where is the 'correct' data? Why not put that out there. Transparency could have put all this to rest a long time ago. Why were the Republican poll watchers in blue counties prohibited from actually watching? What were they hiding? Transparency and an adherence to established election law could have prevented the whole debacle. Denial of fraud absent transparency sounds like a teenager trying to lie their way out of an imminent trip to jail.

Randall Lanham: Please explain how the State of Pennsylvania certified more votes than people that voted? SURE Data System recorded that there were 170,830 FEWER voters voting than the number of votes that were certified by the Secretary of State? You skipped that part of my letter. Since you know all there is to know about the 2020 election process please tell me how this happened?

Multiple fact checkers as well as the Pennsylvania Department of State have concluded Trump's claim of more votes than voters in PA is false. It didn't happen.

Trump. his lawyers, and right wing media can stand in front of a live camera and tell you these lies with abandon without penalty but they cannot tell them to a judge in a courtroom as they will be charged with perjury and/or disbarred. This is why Trump's defense never presented these arguments in the 81 court cases they filed-and lost. And they lost to even hard conservative hand picked judges Trump appointed with an admission of needing them in the event he lost the election. All 9 of the SCOTUS justices slammed the door in his face.

Trump told you these things but Trump is a known serial liar. They never presented any evidence because there was never any evidence to present.

My letter was based on statements made by elected officials in the State of Pennsylvania not President Trump. There are still over 20 cases in various states pending on the election. Virginia issued a ruling this past week stating that the ballots that came in after the date set by the legislature should have not been counted, they were illegal. I think many interesting things may still come to light.
