We’ve been covering the ongoing saga of all the Democrats cheating via absentee ballot fraud and ballot box-stuffing in Bridgeport, CT since last August. It’s still ongoing, believe it or not. But now a second Democrat—in a completely different case than the original one—is under investigation for what looks like a bunch of different absentee ballot fraud issues. This is truly unbelievable folks.
The first case was about the mayoral race and specifically the Democrat primary. This second case is about a Democrat City Council race in Bridgeport.
City Council member Maria Pereira is now under investigation for carrying out her own illegal ballot harvesting operation prior to the November 7th general election. You’re not allowed to turn in a ballot for anyone but yourself under Connecticut law, with the exception of one additional ballot for somebody like an ailing parent.
There’s a retirement home in Bridgeport called Park City Communities. The management there received a formal complaint from a family member that someone had broken into their elderly relative’s unit there. Apparently, the old lady who lived there or one of her family members had set up some sort of nanny cam in the kitchen.
When the resident was not there, Maria Pereira went into the apartment and rifled through her mail on the kitchen counter, looking for the old lady’s unfilled ballot. The pictures of Pereira doing all this were forwarded to the cops.
It turns out that Pereira had been a busy little bee at that particular retirement home. Investigators say she went door-knocking through the retirement home and harassed elderly voters in their doorways for their absentee ballots. She allegedly threatened some of the old folks who wouldn’t cooperate with her. It even appears that she tricked some of the elderly, who had not voted for her, into canceling their ballots.
When the votes were counted during the November 7th election, Pereira was losing the race when the machine ballots were counted. When the absentee ballots were counted, she managed to squeak by with a victory of just 21 votes. The allegations of illegal ballot harvesting only surfaced after it appeared that Pereira had won reelection.
In the first Bridgeport case, for those who missed it, incumbent Mayor Joe Ganim appeared to beat challenger John Gomes by 251 votes in the September Democrat primary race. But then video emerged of a city employee named Wanda Geter-Pataky stuffing the ballot box outside her office. She’s a vocal supporter of the incumbent mayor.
Geter-Pataky was recorded dropping off multiple stacks of illegally harvested absentee ballots in the middle of the night on multiple occasions before September 7th. She then pleaded the Fifth Amendment against self-incrimination when she was called to take the stand in the case that John Gomes filed to overturn the election.
District Superior Court Justice William Clark ruled at the end of the trial that the video was “shocking” and that everyone in Bridgeport should be disturbed by it. Ballot harvesting is an explicitly illegal act in Connecticut, and yet here was a city employee clearly engaged in it. There is no lawful or benevolent reason for Wanda Geter-Pataky to have had massive stacks of ballots in her handbag, or for her to stuff those ballots in a drop box in the dead of night with no one else around.
Remember when everyone in the media insisted that True the Vote and Dinesh D’Souza’s film “2,000 Mules” had been debunked? Yet when we have two different cases of Democrat-on-Democrat election fraud in the same city, suddenly it’s a big scandal that has to be investigated. Elections are being overturned. Bridgeport still hasn’t decided who its next mayor is going to be, because the city still has to run a do-over election.
Maria Pereira’s City Council race is likely to be vacated next, pending the investigation. She might even face charges for walking into an elderly lady’s home and rifling through her mail. It’s like Democrats are born with this innate ability to illegally sniff out mail-in ballots. The only solution, obviously, is to ban all mail-in ballots.
Here’s Jesse Watters on Fox News describing this latest incident of voter fraud and yes, he has the proof to back the story up…
