3,000 Votes COUNTED From Empty Dorm at UCSB–MORE Vote Fraud Exposed

On a recent call, the General Counsel or the California Republican Party claimed there was NO fraud or corruption in the November 2020 election in California.  The CRP Chair, Jessica Patterson has not refuted that claim.  By NOY suing to stop live ballots, 440,000, going to dead people and those living outside of the Sate, the California Republican Party has normalized corrupt elections in California.  We also found that 3500 Californians voted in the November election is California and Nevada—but neither government nor the GOP can find any corruption.  Now this:

“Approximately 3,000 mail-in ballots counted in the Nov. 3 election were supposedly cast by UCSB students residing in a voting precinct that, along with other dorm buildings, includes the Francisco Torres/Santa Catalina Residence Hall at 6850 El Colegio Road in Goleta.

Problem: Due to COVID-19, the Torres Building, which normally accommodates 1,300 students, was empty and locked down through most of 2020, as were all other UCSB dorms.

This means no students/voters were residing inside the Torres Building (nor any of the other dorms) during the election season.

It also means these ballots were fraudulent.

Even if all 1300 beds were filled, this dorm provided 3,000 votes!  Will those in charge of our political parties wake up and move aside so those that want to end the fraud and corruption can sue.

Anatomy of an investigation into a non-investigation

by Robert Eringer, Santa Barbara News-Press,   5/30/21 

Columnist Robert Eringer said he found that a claim of voter fraud at UCSB has not been investigated.

Approximately 3,000 mail-in ballots counted in the Nov. 3 election were supposedly cast by UCSB students residing in a voting precinct that, along with other dorm buildings, includes the Francisco Torres/Santa Catalina Residence Hall at 6850 El Colegio Road in Goleta.

Problem: Due to COVID-19, the Torres Building, which normally accommodates 1,300 students, was empty and locked down through most of 2020, as were all other UCSB dorms.

This means no students/voters were residing inside the Torres Building (nor any of the other dorms) during the election season.

It also means these ballots were fraudulent.

That’s because there’s a second problem: These ballots could not legally have been forwarded to students where they were actually living. 

Why not? 

Because forwarding ballots to alternative addresses is a felony.

Questions: Did someone at the Torres Building hijack ballots, mark and file them? Or did someone illegally forward the ballots to students living with their parents elsewhere?

THE CRIMINAL COMPLAINT

Thomas Cole of Analytics 805, which monitors elections, uncovered the Goleta precinct’s voting irregularities during the course of his routine analysis. Alarmed by the phantom ballots he’d pinpointed, Mr. Cole called the Santa Barbara District Attorney’s Office for advice on how to file a criminal complaint alleging Fraud Corruption of the Voting Process.

The D.A.’s Office directed him to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office.

Mr. Cole’s subsequent complaint, filed with the Sheriff’s Office, alleges that:

Someone in charge of the mail at the building illegally filled out those ballots for the students and sent all those ballots directly back to the election board, which is a felony.

Someone in charge of or with access to the ballots and signature machines simply ignored the phony signatures on the ballots returned from the Torres Building, which is a felony.

Or officials turned off the signature inspection machine.

Or officials lowered the threshold of the machine inspection on the Torres Building precinct ballots, thus allowing the approximate 3,000 fraudulent ballots to be counted, a felony.

Only a student actually residing in the Torres Building during October-November 2020 could have received a ballot to vote. And since the building was closed and locked down, that is impossible. 

Thus, the 3,000 votes counted from the Torres Building are illegal.

THE “INVESTIGATION”?

Sgt. Joseph Schmidt, of the Sheriff Office’s Criminal Investigations Bureau, wrote an email of receipt to Mr. Cole and provided him with a case number: 21-2491. 

Sgt. Schmidt added: “I will write a courtesy report and forward it to the University of California Santa Barbara Police Department.”

Two-and-a-half months later and no further word from Sergeant Schmidt and with no word whatsoever from the UCSB Police Department, Mr. Cole turned to The Investigator.

The Investigator wrote Sgt. Schmidt:

“I would like to know if your office has investigated or is currently investigating this complaint. Apparently, you were going to write a report and forward it to the UCSB Police Department. Has this been done? To whom was it sent, i.e. who is the best person to contact there? I would be most grateful if you would clarify who currently has jurisdiction over this complaint, along with names of officers assigned to it and any additional case numbers that may apply.”

Sgt. Schmidt responded by stating that the location of the complaint is within the jurisdiction of UCSB PD. He provided a direct number to its records department, from which The Investigator garnered the following information: 

A report had indeed been received (in a timely fashion) by UCSB PD from the Sheriff’s Office.

UCSB PD had given the complaint its own case number: 21-0207.

The case was assigned to Cpl. Tiffany Little for follow-up.

Consequently, The Investigator sent Cpl. Little an email with these questions:

“1. Have you yet endeavored to investigate this complaint?

“2. If yes, what progress have you made?

“3. If the investigation has been concluded, what were its findings?”

(Neither UCSB PD Chief Alex Yao nor Operations Lt. Rob Romero had responded to The Investigator’s earlier email requests seeking clarification of this case.)

Two days later, The Investigator followed up with the following email to Cpl. Little, copied to Sgt. Jeff Lupo (her supervisor), along with Chief Yao and Lt. Romero:

“Since Thomas Cole, who filed this complaint, has not been contacted by anyone from UCSB PD to assess the mystery voting data that compelled him to file his complaint, I am left with the impression that nothing has been done to investigate this alleged felony crime. Please convince me otherwise before my column deadline tomorrow afternoon.”

Not 20 minutes later (19 to be precise), Cpl. Little telephoned The Investigator. 

“It’s not us,” she explained. “SB County elections is not our jurisdiction.”  

In that case, what did UCSB PD do with the complaint?  

Said Cpl. Little, “We sent it to the D.A.’s office to sort out jurisdiction.” 

“To whom may I speak with at the D.A.’s office who knows about this?” 

“It doesn’t work like that,” replied Cpl. Little. “It happens electronically.”

Which sounds awfully like a black hole.

And is.

The Investigator telephoned the D.A.’s Office and spoke with James Blackburn, who identified himself as a legal office professional. Mr. Blackburn could find no record of having received either UCSB PD case number 21-0207. For good measure, he also checked the Sheriff’s Office case number 21-2419. Nada. 

“Sometimes it takes two or three weeks to register,” he added helpfully. “Could you find out when they sent it?”

In other words, the old-fashioned runaround.

WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE

For a start, an investigating officer (if anyone can and wants to figure out the correct jurisdiction) should interview Mr. Cole and inspect his voting data.

All of the signatures from Torres Building ballots, currently in possession of the Santa Barbara County Election Division, should be matched to test for phony signatures.

If the signatures are phony — well, then: game, set, match.

If the signatures are genuine, someone in charge of the mail at the Torres Building illegally forwarded the ballots to students at their parents’ homes, which were then illegally accepted by the Elections Division, which operates within the purview of Joseph E. Holland, clerk, recorder and registrar of voters.

This is not rocket science.

A law enforcement officer investigating alleged fraud and corruption of the voting process should be able to interview whomever is in charge of mail at the Torres Building and determine if ballots were forwarded to students.

As Mr. Cole points out in his complaint: If they answer yes, it is a felony. If the answer is no, how did all those students get ballots to vote?

An investigating law enforcement officer should be able to interview election officials and gain access to the ballots in question to assess the veracity of ballot signatures.

After all, these are felony crimes, punishable by huge fines, disqualification from public office and up to three years in prison. 

We are forever told by those who govern us that our right to vote is so very precious — sacrosanct, even. But when our choices for elective office are diluted with fake votes, our preciously sacrosanct vote becomes disenfranchised — and democracy suffers.

If election laws go unenforced, cheating and the candidates chosen by cheaters will endure and rule.

And there’s another important issue here: How can we, as a country, morally insist on monitoring the elections inside foreign countries when we, ourselves, are incapable of ensuring that our own elections are fair?

Mr. Cole told The Investigator that, nearly three months since sounding the alarm, he has lost faith in the ability of local law enforcement to investigate voter fraud. He now intends to file his complaint with the FBI. 

Perhaps the Bureau will also investigate why law enforcement in Santa Barbara is sluggishly reluctant to investigate and enforce its own voting irregularities.

WHISTLE-BLOWERS WELCOME

There is, clearly, something terribly wrong with this picture. 

Has Santa Barbara’s law enforcement community (including the D.A.’s Office) been politicized into ignoring complaints that do not fit a mainstream election narrative?  

Are we living in a county that ignores legitimate complaints about illegal irregularities in the voting process?

The Investigator would like to hear from anyone who may have insider knowledge about why this voter fraud claim has not been investigated and (even more so) if there has been a concerted effort to cover up the fraudulent votes from UCSB’s Torres Building (and the other dorms).  

Whistle-blowers are protected by law — and this column pledges to shield their identities.

    Spelling and grammar aside, very interesting story. Keep plugging away, you might just find someone willing to pursue the truth.

  2. Cathy Lee says

    The Supreme court said there was not enough fraud to prove audits needing to be done. However, more and more states are finally trying to do audits. I know Calufornia had huge fraudulent ballots turned.

    Thank you for trying to prove it. Don’t stop .
    My daughter lives in Bakersfield, she really hoped her vote countrd.

  3. Really??? says

    Years back when I was the paid ex. director of the SB County Republican Party the joke was Republican Student Registrations often were ignored, or posted as Democrats. The other joke is students would register to vote in IV or on campus and continue their voter registration in the districts where their parents lived. I have repeatedly over heard statements by students they are routinely voting in 2 districts.

    When I questioned the Registrar of Voters the answer was “no response.” I have no doubt that inquires were ignored. As a private citizen I filed 2 different FPPC items with the State of California and received zero response. The second complaint was sent to the Attorney General’s office and the Governor of the State. Understand they had tracking numbers.

    When the State of California Democrats can ignore items that by law they are supposed to attend to you know the problem is massive and criminal. Oh the attorney general is now your Senator and the Gov. was Brown.

    If you are an honest Democrat do you really think the party you support is hones? If you do I have a bridge to the channel islands I would love to sell you.

    God Bless Robert Eringer, Santa Barbara News-Press,…for this report. Thank you.

  5. How can we help, sign a petition, call, donate, other? Given enough time, all will be swept under the rug and forgotten. I guess we could call CNN or MSNBC, like those liars would care.

    This article was not proofread.

      Nor does it provide evidence.

        It is time for California to follow Arizona’s footsteps for a forensic audit to take place in counties.

  7. “Let’s make the rest of the country just like California!”

  8. I know. Right! The biggest problem with potential voter fraud is the lack of proofreading of the articles that bring forth the information. 🙁

      Actually, spelling errors in ALL articles on this site making it difficult to understand the point are common regardless of the subject matter. Repeating entire paragraphs is common and annoying. I hereby volunteer to proof read,and correct errors in articles posted here (for a nominal fee).

  9. Kathy Dittner says

    By NOY suing to stop live is another spelling error.
    We also found that 3500 Californians voted in the November election is California is a grammar error

    Please take up Daniel Wright offer to proof read. I’m beginning to stop reading your excellent articles because of the errors.

  10. The democrats get out of jail free justice system is large and in charge. They will silently slink away and forget this ever happened. “So what? “Trump deserved it”. Too stupid to understand what a socialist society existence is really like.

    Send this to Hannity aka Fox News. It needs national attention for sure. They might just go for it.

    • Help Us Investigate Election Fraud at UCSB https://gofund.me/1213712cThomas on IV fraud investigation…we looked at several precincts and in Isla Vista one precinct in particular encompasses the Torres building now known as the Pacific arts plaza…that building and several other nearby dorms constituted one single precinct with around 3300 voters in that precinct… and they had 75% voter turn out…And so with the buildings being locked down through the entire election season, and beyond, it seemed a likely target for our investigation. 
      Because if the building is empty, the ballots would’ve gone to that building and the only other place those ballots could go is to be returned to the Santa Barbara Election office. 
       Because there were no students at the building because it was empty and the law says you can’t forward ballots to people if they’ve moved and those people had moved, in a legal sense. 
      And in the alternative if those 3000 students all sent in to get a mail in ballot they would have to send that from their parents home or wherever they were living and you can’t vote in Isla Vista if you live in Pacoima…so this is kind of where we’re going with this complaint. 
      Joe Holland and the county election board will have to twist themselves into pretzels trying to explain how this all happened legally….

  14. Mike Werneburg says

    Yes we are all sinners, but these are not personal sins that are accountable to God. This deceit, and corruption, affects a large amount of people. These people are so hungry for power they have lost their moral compass. They most certainly work for Satan, not God. Pray for their souls when they die, but hold them accountable while they are living.

  15. The biden presidency is illegitimate.

  16. I see.

  17. If our own Party refuses to acknowledge what We The People CLEARLY see as voter fraud, then they need to be REMOVED! Jessica Patterson is weak and is doing a poor job, in my opinion, of the Republican Party here in California. For someone who is paid in excess of $200k for the privilege of representing the California Republican Party, Donald J. Trump would say, “You’re Fired!”

  18. Freedom fighter says

    So in our country the Democrats which are totally corrupt can get away with everything they want to but what about the honest Americans Democrat and Republican why are we being brought down and being punished by the corrupt Democrats this is coming to the second Holocaust. It has already begun. We have no freedom any longer because they are taking away everything, our jobs, money, fuel, freedom of speech, everything we consider in our freedom they are taking away.
