EXCLUSIVE: Detroit Surveillance Footage Shows Woman Dropping Large Stack of Absentee Ballot Envelopes Into Drop Box On Day Before 2020 Election, As Woman Accompanying Her Appears To Be Filming [VIDEO]
In our ongoing efforts to expose the truth about the November 2020 election that Michigan’s dishonest Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson calls “the most secure election in history,” the Gateway Pundit and 100 Percent Fed Up are releasing yet another stunning video clip from the Wayne County, MI drop box surveillance footage.
The incredible discovery was made by the MC4EI team, a group of fearless individuals in Michigan who’ve watched hundreds of hours of drop box footage obtained by The Gateway Pundit through a FOIA request.
In the video, two women are seen walking through a parking lot at 10:40 AM on November 2, 2020 (the day before the election) at the Heilmann Recreation Center satellite voting center in Detroit. The woman wearing a green sweater carries a large stack of what appears to be absentee ballots as she walks toward a drop box. The woman accompanying her is wearing medical scrubs (possible nurse, nursing home employee, or costume), and as she gets closer to the drop box, she reaches into the pants pocket of her scrubs and pulls out a cell phone. Once they arrive at the drop box, the woman in the green sweater begins to drop the absentee ballot envelopes into the slot on the drop box, as the woman wearing the scrubs positions her cellphone over the woman’s hands, as she appears to film the activity.
After dropping the large stack of absentee ballot envelopes into the drop box, they leave the camera’s view as they appear to walk into the Heilmann satellite voting center, where voter registration and in-person early voting are taking place. Many people who’ve viewed this footage had questioned why the women stopped at the drop box to deposit their absentee envelopes when they appeared to be making a trip into the voting center? Why didn’t they just take the ballots inside with them? In the following clip that we’ve included in this video, the women are seen leaving the satellite voting center with a large stack of white paper (blank ballots?) carried by the woman in the green sweater as they walk back to their vehicle in the parking lot.
Note that throughout the video, both women who are OUTDOORS are wearing face masks, but when they get back inside the vehicle, the woman wearing the scrubs, who is also the driver, can be seen pulling the face mask down below her chin as they exit the parking lot. Is she removing her face mask because COVID is less transmissible inside a vehicle when she’s in close proximity with the passenger than when she was walking outdoors to the ballot drop box? Or is the mask just a great way to cover their faces as they drop a large stack of what appears to be absentee ballots into a drop box with surveillance cameras positioned above?
For the record, according to Michigan law, nursing home employees or nurses are NOT allowed to deliver absentee ballots on behalf of patients to drop boxes or voting centers.
Michigan does not have laws specific to nursing home absentee voting and observation: Michigan does not have special voting deputies for nursing homes (like, for example, Wisconsin) nor specific rules regarding assisting nursing home residents to participate in absentee voting.
The SOS manual does note that absentee ballots can be mailed to nursing homes:
A voter can receive an absent voter ballot at his or her registration address, at any address outside of his or her jurisdiction of residence, or at a hospital, nursing home, or similar institution.
Because there are no special laws or rules on nursing home absentee voting, the general rules for absentee balloting apply.
Generally, Michigan law on absentee balloting, applied to everyone, including nursing home residents, permits a household member or a family member (a “member of the immediate family of the voter” includes a father-in-law, mother-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, grandparent, or grandchild or an individual residing in the voter’s household), or an election official if those options are not available, to return a voter’s absentee ballot. Michigan law, Section 168.764a, provides:
Step 5. Deliver the return envelope by 1 of the following methods:
(a) Place the necessary postage upon the return envelope and deposit it in the United States mail or with another public postal service, express mail service, parcel post service, or common carrier.
(b) Deliver the envelope personally to the office of the clerk, to the clerk, or to an authorized assistant of the clerk.
(c) In either (a) or (b), a member of the immediate family of the voter, including a father-in-law, mother-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, grandparent, or grandchild or a person residing in the voter’s household may mail or deliver a ballot to the clerk for the voter.
(d) You may request by telephone that the clerk who issued the ballot provide assistance in returning the ballot. The clerk is required to provide assistance if you are unable to return your absent voter ballot as specified in (a), (b), or (c) above, if it is before 5 p.m. on the Friday immediately preceding the election, and if you are asking the clerk to pick up the absent voter ballot within the jurisdictional limits of the city, township, or village in which you are registered. Your absent voter ballot will then be picked up by the clerk or an election assistant sent by the clerk. All persons authorized to pick up absent voter ballots are required to carry credentials issued by the clerk. If using this absent voter ballot return method, do not give your ballot to anyone until you have checked their credentials.
Step 6. The ballot must reach the clerk or an authorized assistant of the clerk before the close of the polls on election day. An absent voter ballot received by the clerk or assistant of the clerk after the close of the polls on election day will not be counted. …
All of the following actions are violations of the Michigan election law and are illegal in this state:
(1) To vote an absent voter ballot at a meeting or gathering at which other people are voting absent voter ballots.
(2) For a person who is assisting an absent voter in marking the ballot to suggest or in any manner attempt to influence the absent voter on how he or she should vote.
(3) For a person who is present and knows that a person is voting an absent voter ballot to suggest or in any manner attempt to influence the absent voter on how he or she should vote.
(4) For a person other than those listed in these instructions to return, offer to return, agree to return, or solicit to return an absent voter ballot to the clerk.
(5) For a person other than the absent voter; a person listed in these instructions; or a person whose job it is to handle mail before, during, or after being transported by a public postal service, express mail service, parcel post service, or common carrier, but only during the normal course of his or her employment to be in possession of a voted or unvoted absent voter ballot.
Approximately 150 “ballot assistants” were (conveniently) used by clerks to pick up ballots from people who called the clerk’s office to request assistance because, for some reason, they were unable to place a stamp on the envelope and drop it in the mailbox. It is also our understanding that ballot assistants are supposed to bring the ballots back to the clerk’s office who sent them to pick up the ballot. Ping data from the True the Vote team should provide more clarification about the roles of the people we’re seeing dropping off large stacks of ballots at drop boxes or making multiple trips to the same drop boxes in Detroit.
