MUSKEGON, MICHIGAN — In early October of 2020, the city clerk in a Michigan town became suspicious when a woman presented her with nearly 10,000 voter registrations. She reported it to the local police. This was the start of an investigation revealing a massive armed voter fraud operation – the results of which haven’t seen the public light until now.
The story, first published by The Gateway Pundit, relies on documents from the investigation obtained via a Freedom of Information Act request. According to the official investigative reports obtained by Republican voter integrity activists Phil O’Halloran and Lori Skibo, it didn’t take long for Michigan State Police to get involved.
Analysts with Michigan law enforcement quickly established that the voter registrations were fraudulent – containing identical handwriting and fake or non-existent addresses.
By conducting covert surveillance and interviewing some of the “canvassers” associated with the operation, Michigan State Police detectives discovered that the organization behind the fraudulent voter registrations had dozens of hourly employees and the staff moved around in rented minivans between different office locations and hotels.
The group, traced to a company called GBI Strategies, was renting temporary spaces of shuttered businesses, among them a storefront belonging to a defunct optometrist, California Eyecare.
When Michigan State Police and investigators from the attorney general’s office raided the former optometrist location, they found a large number of tablets, dozens of cell phones, hundreds of prepaid debit cards, partially filled-out voter registrations and other documents.
But the most shocking discovery was multiple semi-automatic rifles with advanced optics and customized pistols in pelican cases. On a whiteboard in one of the rooms, which apparently had served to brief employees, it was written: “weapons in the field.”
After determining that the firearms were legally owned by a person with access to the premises, the Michigan authorities returned them to the owner – whose name is redacted in the report.
“My estimate is over 800,000 ballot applications were sent to non-qualified voters in Michigan, including many individuals who moved or died, and even some individuals who were underage or non-citizens. Many were sent to people who had moved out of state,” Michigan State Senator Ruth Johnson, a former secretary of state, told The Gateway Pundit.
Michigan law enforcement reportedly turned the investigation over to the FBI. The Gateway Pundit writes that the Bureau took no action on the case.
