Pennsylvania election officials have decertified voting machines in Fulton County after Republican lawmakers had them audited following the state’s controversial handling of the 2020 election.

Acting Secretary of State Veronica Degraffenreid said in a Tuesday letter that after a software company called Wake TSI looked over the Dominion machines at the request of government officials concerned with election integrity, they would have to be retired.

The company was contracted following a request from Republican state Sen. Doug Mastriano and from Fulton County election officials, The Hill reported.

Wake TSI reportedly examined the machines, looking at each one’s “election database, results files, and Windows system logs.”

Fulton County also had Wake TSI use a “system imaging tool to take complete hard drive images of these computers” and to also “complete images of two USB thumb drives” which were used to transfer election results.

Degraffenreid complained that the inspection of the machines was “not transparent or bipartisan.”

The acting secretary of state also said the machines were compromised, as Dominion Voting Systems and election officials could not “verify that the impacted components of Fulton County’s leased voting system are safe to use in future elections.”

“I have no other choice but to decertify the use of Fulton County’s leased Dominion Democracy Suite 5.5A voting system last used in the November 2020 election,” she stated.

For future elections, Fulton County will lease or buy new machines, The Hill reported.

Wake TSI is the same company contracted for the audit of the Maricopa County, Arizona, 2020 election results.

President Donald Trump and some state officials have said Pennsylvania was the site of massive voter fraud before, during and after the November election.

Mastriano has sought to have other counties audit their machines, but counties have turned that request down fearing their machines would be de-certified by the state, as those in Fulton County have been, WCAU-TV reported.

After three Pennsylvania lawmakers toured the Arizona audit, Democratic Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf called it an “effort to discredit the integrity of our elections” as well as “an insult to our county election workers and to Pennsylvania voters,” the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.

Trump has called for a full forensic audit in the commonwealth, which is something not likely to happen.

Mastriano last month appeared willing to compromise.

“I’m a bit disconcerted that someone has come out on our side, not even leaving open the idea of an audit,” Mastriano stated in June, the Post-Gazette reported. “I don’t know how we can get around it, but the people overwhelmingly want an audit.”

“I think just a county or two would do. My preference would be a Democrat and a Republican county and let the chips fall where they may,” Mastriano said.

    • You understand in part, but I believe mislead in some ways.  Please read my post above, Skeptical.  I live 15 miles from Fulton County, PA.

    • I'll readily admit to err is human, so lets review. A state entity Constitutionally charged with conducting state elections resulting in outcomes used for a federal office, says it will invalidate for election use, a tally system that is highly prone to subtle, ruthless, and surgically efficient fraud if directed to do so, if submitted for examination. 

      Supposely that would discourage the act of examination, because replacement is cost prohibitive.

      My observation is that the machines are not worth the fraud risk anyway, and are not indispensible to conducting elections, just as was done before the Bush-Gore Florida circus that supposedly made the machine technology preferable.

      Okay. Clue me.

    • NO!  ABSOLUTELY NOT!  THINK!  If the feds run the election, if they are corrupt, the game is over.  They ARE corrupt.  Who do you think is ALL behind this fraud.  The states are our only hope.  The PA Senate is Republican controlled, as is the House.  Come on AZ.  Come on GA.  Here comes PA. These three states will deny Biden his 270 electoral votes. It may give Trump OUR 270!  Mastriano is a good man with fine men surrounding him and bolstered by a frenzied, angry, and boisterous conservative citizenry.  Never give up your states' right.  The Founding Fathers were spot-on correct!  Elections are local and to be controlled locally.  Understand?  Much of what you right is the agenda of the Convention of States which would install amendments covered in your list.  Check them out. The US congress, the POTUS, and the SCOTUS cannot veto these amendments which, among other thing, would make English our official language and require a picture ID in order to vote, 

  • These are the same machines that were used for multiple elections including our own and Venezuela's. Soros controls all of them. 

  • It's called CYA - they cheated; they know they cheated and now are trying to cover their tracks so nobody can prove it.  BTW Tom Wolf is as useful idiot and either doesn't know what he is saying or knows and chooses to lie.

  • its because they know they cheated, and they are throwing a temper tantrum to hopefully take your focus off of the prize

  • HOW CHILDISH, ITS JUST A MACHINE THAT HAS TO BE WIPPED AND REPROGRAMMED BEFORE ANOTHER ELECTION, ITS LIKE PUTTING A NEW TIRE ON THE OLD RIM OF A CAR.... WHAT ARE WE GOING TO BUY NEXT, WHOS TO SAY HOW STUPID PEOPLE ARE AND ARE EXPECTED TO BE.   THIS IS REALLY A GIFT, A SECURE IN PERSONS VOTING STOP THE 1OO'S OF THOUD=SAND MAIL-IN FAKE VOTE THAT BEHIND THAT VOTE IS NOT A REAL PERSONS, 74K IN ARIZONA RIGHT NOW, AND HOW CAN YOU ADD PERSONS TO VOTER ROLLS AFTER THE ELCTIONIS OVER TO SUPPORT THOSE FAKE VOTYES, HOW COME WITHOUT A LEGAL PROCESS WAS SO MANY REMOVED FROM THE VOTERS ROLLS, AND THE NEWEST CYBER ATTACK, ALLOWING "ONLY: DOMINION TO HAVE ACESS TO PASSWORDS AND CONTINUING TO HAVE THE MACHINES CONNECTED TO DATA TRANSFERING, (AND CONNECTED TO THE INTENET) WAS ACCESSED 100'S OF 1000'S OF TIME TO WIP THE LOGS FROM THE ELECTION THE CRIMINALS ACCESSED THE MACHINES THAT WAS TO BE IN THE HANDS OF THE TRASURER AND NOT CONNETED TO THE INTERNET "EVER" ALL LIES AND A HUGE CRIME.
