Hey! You’re supposed to wait until the general election to do that!

The Blaze:

A man who narrowly lost a bid to be the Democrat nominee in the upcoming mayoral race in Bridgeport, Connecticut, has announced that he intends to contest the results of the primary vote after surveillance footage suggests that election fraud may have taken place.

On September 12, incumbent Bridgeport Mayor Joe Ganim narrowly edged out Democrat challenger John Gomes by a mere 251-vote margin. Primary Election Day ballots favored Gomes, but after absentee ballots were tallied later that evening, Ganim prevailed over Gomes, 4,212 to 3,961.

Gomes, a 52-year-old immigrant from the Cape Verde Islands off the coast of Western Africa, never conceded the race. Then, four days later, his campaign posted a video to its Facebook page that appears to contain footage from Bridgeport’s City Hall. The message attending the video calls it “video surveillance proving that the mayoral election was unequivocally stolen through corruption within City Hall by tampering with absentee ballots.”

On the video, a woman wearing a light-colored dress and shoes appears to make repeated trips to a ballot box stationed outside City Hall. While there, she appears to deposit stacks of what Gomes has alleged to be “absentee ballots.” Time stamps for the video indicate she makes three stops at the box early in the morning on September 5: once at 5:42 a.m., then again about a minute later, and a third time at 6:39 a.m.

The video also indicates she stood by and watched as a man, reportedly a city employee, appeared to make yet another deposit at the ballot box around 7:18 a.m.

Strangely, when Democrats themselves engage in disputes over voter fraud, video evidence and witnesses are suddenly considered “credible.” This is quite a stark contrast to their reactions when witnesses and hours of footage suggested potential cheating during the 2020 (and 2022) elections.

When the right raises concerns about cheating, the left, including their state-run media stooges, collectively repeat the “there’s no evidence” narrative, saying it over and over, as if repetition equals truth.

It’s the ol’  “no proof is proof” theory — a belief that’s held by liars and simpletons. Essentially, this theory claims that the absence of criminal charges proves that voter fraud isn’t real. The biggest flaw in this cockamamie theory is that voter fraud tends to happen in areas under complete Democrat (or RINO) control, where there’s no motivation to uncover the truth. That is, until Democrats employ their own cheating tactics against each other. Then, all bets are off. This precise scenario unfolded during a Democratic primary in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and now, the accusations of cheating are flying fast and furious style.

The woman who actually did the ballot stuffing is a very large black woman who works for the city.

Bombshell video:


The woman in the video has been identified as Wanda Geter-Pataky. She is a city employee and a long-time supporter of Mayor Ganim. However, she’s been shrouded in a lot of controversy and mystery over the years, thanks to other “close wins” from her favorite mayor. The Blaze piece continues:

Mayor Ganim also has a history of sordid political behavior. In fact, his tenure as mayor — which began all the way back in 1991 — was interrupted 12 years later when he resigned following a conviction for crimes related to accepting bribes and kickbacks while in office. He served seven years behind bars before returning to the outside world, where he made a stunning comeback, winning re-election to the mayor’s office in 2015 and re-election again four years later.

Ganim, now 63, has responded to these latest accusations against his campaign supporters. “I want to state unequivocally that I do not condone, in any way, actions taken by anyone including any campaign, city, or elected official, which undermines the integrity of either the electoral process or city property,” he said in a statement issued Monday. “The Bridgeport Police Department is actively investigating all these matters, and my administration will continue to update the public as we are able to obtain more information.”

Bridgeport law enforcement has launched an inquiry into the incident. However, predictably, they’ve also initiated a probe into the unauthorized release of surveillance footage from City Hall. In truth, they should be thanking that person, but as always, Demos aren’t keen on whistleblowers when someone “leaks” their little election secrets.
