Anyone who has ever had to close out a register at the end of the day in retail or a restaurant can tell you what the cardinal rule is: Receipts have to match the till. The amount of cash that’s in the register at the end of the day has to balance out with the receipts.
If there’s a discrepancy every once in a while, that’s normal. Maybe an employee misplaced a receipt; people are human. But if the receipts and the till have a mismatch every single day, that’s a problem. It means someone is stealing.
A citizen audit group just released its findings after checking the 2020 election results in counties in New York. Guess what? None of the receipts matched what was in the till.
A group calling itself New York Citizen Audit Research (NY-CAR) submitted Freedom of Information requests to all 62 counties in New York state for their election results. 34 counties complied and 28 counties refused to cooperate at all. NY-CAR then compared the county results with the publicly available numbers on the NY Secretary of State’s website, which were the official, certified results in the 2020 election. For kicks and grins, they also compared the county data to the numbers on the NY Board of Elections (BOE) website.
What’s that cardinal rule again? Receipts have to match the till, right?
Between the NY Secretary of State, NY BOE and the 34 counties that cooperated with the audit group for publicly available information, none of the numbers matched! NONE!
At the state level, this doesn’t look like much of a scandal. The NY Secretary of State says that 8,690,614 New Yorkers voted in the 2020 election. The NY Board of Elections says that 8,664,959 New Yorkers voted. That’s a 25,655-vote discrepancy, which doesn’t look like terribly promising evidence of voter fraud in a state that F. Joe Biden supposedly won by 2 million votes.
But when you dig down into the countywide numbers and start comparing those to the Secretary of State and BOE numbers, which is what NY-CAR did, it turns into bizarro-land. Check this out:
Bronx County had a 49,049-vote discrepancy between what the county reported and what the Secretary of State reported in the certified results. Those 49,049 votes were missing in the certified results. Erie County had 66,157 missing votes. Kings County had 53,175 missing votes. New York County had 51,989 missing votes. Queens County had 54,612 missing votes. Richmond County had 45,432 missing votes.
That’s a discrepancy of 320,414 missing votes in six counties.
So… how was there only a 25,655-vote discrepancy statewide? Because the Democrats tried to balance the books and as we all know, they are terrible at math. Other counties in New York had EXTRA votes that showed up. Rather than negative numbers (missing votes), they had positive-number discrepancies (extra votes), so the totals almost matched up. Almost.
Nassau County in New York had 241,149 extra votes. The remaining 54 counties had about 100,000 extra votes, bringing the total in that column to around 340,000 extra votes.
320,000 missing votes in one column and 340,000-ish extra votes in another column. That’s a 660,000-vote discrepancy between what the counties in New York reported versus what the New York Secretary of State’s office reported in the certified results.
Considering the fact that 28 counties refused to comply with Freedom of Information requests and didn’t turn over any numbers to the auditing group… how shaky does F. Joe Biden’s 2-million-vote victory in New York State suddenly feel, knowing there’s already a 660,000-vote discrepancy?
And with so much jiggering of the votes at the county level, that means the New York state legislature is definitely chosen by rampant cheating. Republican Elisa Nahoum had a commanding lead on election night over her opponent, Democrat John Liu. (Just as Trump had a commanding lead that night.) But she lost her race in the end by a vote of 89,504 to 41,799. She lost by 47,705 total votes. Looks like a blowout, right?
But that race was in Queens County, where 54,612 votes somehow went missing in the final results – about 7,000 votes more than the margin of error. It’s impossible to know who really won that race.
Some people shrug and think, “Oh, why bother?” when we publicly demand forensic audits of all 50 states. But this is why we need a 50-state audit. F. Joe Biden supposedly “won” New York by 2,000,000 votes, but a cursory check of public records has found a 660,000-vote discrepancy.
When the receipts don’t match the till, you have to figure out who is stealing from you, so that you can fire that person. If you ignore the problem or pretend it doesn’t exist, it will eventually destroy your entire business.
