Another county has come under fire for Dominion machines.
According to reports the Stark county board excluded the public from discussions relating to the purchase of the machines.
Why was the public excluded when making or talking about these decisions? To me it doesn’t really seem like an issue that needs to be classified.
Many people point out that issues like this are exactly what causes the larger network of fraud that plagued the 2020 election.
Small decisions that seemingly don’t matter combined with the thousands of other small decisions are what create large systematic election fraud.
Lack of transparency in meetings, backdoor business deals and contracts, private corporations handling elections, and corrupt officials are just some of the things that play into this web.
Here is what we currently know:
The Epoch Times Came through with more details:
“Right before voting on the contract with Dominion,” Look Ahead America’s Matt Braynard said in a news release on Tuesday, “the board excluded the public for 18 minutes from their discussion and deliberations. Nothing necessitated the public’s exclusion.”
Braynard contended that Stark County “continued to exclude the public when discussing the contract” with the Denver-based voting machine manufacturer.
As a result, according to Braynard, Stark County’s Board of Elections violated Ohio’s Open Meetings Act by not allowing the public’s participation in the meeting.
In December, the board voted to move ahead with a $1.5 million purchase of new machines manufactured by Dominion Voting Systems, saying that it reviewed and rejected post-Nov. 3 election allegations against the company’s machines. Members of the elections board argued it followed state law in voting to adopt the Dominion machines.
But Braynard contended that for months after the decision, Stark County “continued to exclude the public when discussing the contract with Dominion.”
The Canton Rep had more to say:
State law allows public bodies to privately discuss in executive session the purchase of public property. But only "if premature disclosure of information would give an unfair competitive or bargaining advantage to a person whose personal, private interest is adverse to the general public interest," the complaint said.
The Board of Elections gave no indication that it was meeting in executive session to avoid revealing information to give someone an unfair competitive or bargaining advantage, Look Ahead America argues. Therefore, it says the executive sessions are illegal and by law any actions based on discussions in illegal executive sessions are invalid.
"They didn’t want the public to hear what they had to say about buying black-box voting equipment. They broke the law to do it, and we’re going to hold them accountable,” said Matt Braynard, Look Ahead America's executive director.
