A Dominion Voting Systems whistleblower has accused CEO John Poulos of outright lies and misleading legislators during his testimony in the recent Michigan Senate hearing.
Melissa Carone, a Dominion contractor during the election, first came into the spotlight after revealing that she witnessed irregularities at the TCF Center in Detroit on Election Day.
Debunking Dominion Lies
Carone is now refuting the lies and misleading information discussed by Dominion’s CEO during his testimony on December 15.
According to Poulos testimony, which lasted for several hours, there were only three workers at the TCF Center: two employees and a contractor. Carone says there were actually five total workers.
The Dominion CEO told Senate Oversight Committee legislators that the vote tabulators sit on top of a ballot box which is sealed during ballot counting. Carone said that may be the case at other voting centers, but the ballot boxes were not attached to the machines at the TCF Center.
Poulos also stated that Dominion works with all political parties, using a “nonpartisan approach.” Carone disputed this, stating that her manager at the TCF Center, a co-owner of the company, made numerous derogatory remarks about Republicans and Trump supporters, and referred to anyone at the center with American flags on their clothes or masks as Trump supporters.
“If one of their owners is making comments like that and statements like that to a worker, then obviously they’re not bipartisan,” Carone told NTD.
The Dominion whistleblower also refuted Poulos’ claims that Dominion machines are unable to connect to the internet, citing a recording she made during a training which reveals that every tabulator in the TCF Center had a modem and was connected to the internet.
“What they would do is they would go off the Internet and then reconnect, go off and reconnect,” she said.
“There were numerous inconsistencies with his story,” Carone said. She also mentioned that some legislators were struggling to follow some of what Poulos said during his testimony, and accused him of speaking “in a way that a lot of people wouldn’t understand.”
“They didn’t even really understand what he was saying. And he did this in order to remain credible to the public, or try to remain credible,” she added.
A Dominion spokesperson responded to a list of Carone’s allegations, writing that “Dominion stands behind Mr. Poulos’s testimony under oath before the Michigan State Senate, and we welcome those who differ to take the same steps to ensure truth, trust, and accountability in their own public statements.”
Linda Lee Tarver, former election integrity liaison in the Michigan Secretary of State’s Office and current president of the Republican Women’s Federation of Michigan, stated that the Dominion CEO’s testimony left more questions unanswered than it clarified.
“My overall impression of the hearing is that the CEO of Dominion had to come and defend his product. They have many states, billions of dollars invested. And yet, the reality is that we did not learn much more than the accusation of human error, when there is evidence that it is Dominion error,” she said.
