New Mexico Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse-Oliver testified before the New Mexico legislature and she lied through her teeth, but at least she is consistent.
I believe she could be allergic to the truth like most Democrats are. The House Judiciary Committee on the controversial election bill titled SB 180, Representative Greg Nibert asked the Secretary of State directly, “Is the election system connected to the internet?” She answered “no”.
This is a total lie and in fact, she knew it was a lie because she spent three million tax dollars to make sure they are all connected to the internet.
The entire election system is now under her complete control and connected to the internet. Toulouse-Oliver and the county clerks worked with Dominion to wipe out all election date making it impossible to investigate if the elections were fair. (SPOILER ALERT: They weren’t)
Previously, we established that the post-election canvass reports in all 33 New Mexico Counties are being illegally prepared. Complete election records are being uploaded to an uncertified, centralized software under the control of the SOS called SERVIS, which is then used to create the official election results. Use of any uncertified software for this part of the election process is a violation of federal and state law. And according to state law, the SOS is not to have access to the complete election record from any county until the election has been certified.
As the Democrat-controlled New Mexico legislature barrels ahead with legislation that would put the nail in the coffin of honesty and transparency in New Mexico’s elections, the corruption of the Secretary of State (SOS), Maggie Toulouse Oliver, continues to be exposed.
After hearing public testimony during a November Torrance County public meeting, the Estancia News has done a deep dive on how election results in New Mexico are finalized, or “canvassed.” It turns out the SOS has illegally centralized this process, cutting out the clerks, and breaking multiple state and federal laws in the process.
During the canvass, each of the county clerks are to create a “report of the canvass” which gives detailed election results by ballot type and precinct for all the races on the ballot. State law explicitly states that the canvass report is the sole responsibility of the county clerk: “The county clerk shall: prepare the report of the canvass of the election returns by carefully examining the returns of each precinct to ascertain if they contain the properly executed certificates required by the Election Code and to ascertain whether any discrepancy, omission or error appears on the face of the election returns.” (NMSA 1-2-31.F).
The New Mexico legislature is now considering a bill, SB 180. If that becomes law paper ballots cannot be used to audit an election and in fact are off limits to the public.
