Suspicious Flash Drive With Votes “Found” In Virginia Congressional Race, iStock-wildpixel

HENRICO COUNTY, VA-(Ammoland.com)- When I checked the election results for Virginia late on Wednesday, I marveled at how pro-gun candidates picked up seats in the House of Representatives. This total included the very pro-gun Republican Nick Freitas from Virginia’s 7th congressional district.

Even though officials didn’t call the election at that point, Freitas was on the verge of unseating his Democrat rival, Abigail Spanberger, late Wednesday afternoon. He had over 1300 more votes than the former CIA official. Having spoken to Freitas before about gun rights, I was excited to see what he would do in Congress. I knew the GOA endorsed candidate would help protect our 2A rights from the rabid anti-gun crowd.

About 20 minutes later, Spanberger somehow overtook Freitas by over 5000 votes. I was shocked. How could that happen? It turns out that an election official “found” an overlooked flash drive mislabeled as “provisional ballots.”

The flash drive contained over 14,000 new votes!?

Out of the 14,000 ballots, Spanberger won precisely 64% of the votes. She immediately declared victory, leaving supporters of the former Green Beret shocked. A lot of my friends in the area were upset at the outcome. Many wondered why poll workers stored votes on a flash drive marked “provisional ballots.” According to Henrico Registrar Mark Coakley, who found the drive, it was a cost-saving measure to store the live votes on a drive marked “provisional ballots.”

A flash drive of that size on Amazon goes for $5.75. Something didn’t seem right to me. It was like the old story of finding a box of ballots in a car’s trunk.

I decided to look into Coakley most closely. There is nothing too political in Coakley’s social media feeds or official statements. I am not accusing Coakley of doing anything wrong, but, in 2016, he did share a Russia Gate post. Since then, there was nothing political. Something seemed off to me about how sanitized the feeds appeared to be, so I decided to look into the people around him.

His wife Hilary Coakley, on the other hand, is involved in campaigning for Democrats. I was able to find proof that she made calls for Biden and Democrats running for Congress, including Abigail Spanberger.

I am not a conspiracy theorist, but it seems odd that the man who found the flash drive that put Spanberger into the lead is married to someone who volunteered for Spanberger. I decided to call Mark Coakley to ask about the drives and his wife’s connection to the Virginia Democratic Party.

According to Coakley, Poll workers had ten drives, and they processed nine. The 10th had a filter on it, and that was the “found” drive. The workers reused the drive, according to Coakley. This version of events is different than what others have reported. I still have questions on the chain of custody. If I were the Freitas campaign, I would ask to examine the drive and the files on the drive. There should be metadata on the drive. Plus, when you delete files from a drive, it isn’t actually deleted and can be restored. This fact is especially true with solid-state drives like the ones used in this case.

When I asked Coakley about his wife’s connection to Spanberger and the Virginia Democratic Party, he said: “I can’t control my wife.”

As of this writing, Freitas closed the gap from little more than a 7000-vote difference to 4000 votes after requested canvassers found more “mathematical errors.” Canvassing will continue Monday in Henrico County, where Coakley found the drive. If the difference is less than 1000 votes, it will trigger an automatic recount.

AmmoLand News is aware of similarly found drives in Ohio and South Carolina. We are investigating those cases now. If our readers know of more occurrences like this in Virginia please contact us.

Maybe President Trump should now declare marshal law because this election is surely a national emergency. What has he got to lose, voter fraud has stolen the election. To help with what democrats think, put them in jail until proof that he either lost the election or he won it.

Just think about this, our government said elections in other countries were crooked and did things to change those nations. Maybe we should have let other nations be watching for Election fraud here.
One thing for certain, if you sell your soul to the devil to win an election you will pay for it in eternity.

The democrats have years of experience in how to crook an election going back to Kennedy verses Nixon, today using flash drives gives to much of an opportunity to cheat unless they keep paper ballots for verification of votes that have been cast.
This entire election has too many things wrong in different states to be considered a fair election IMO.

it is uncanny how most, if not all the “found” votes are for leftists, statistically impossible.

The flash drives used in voting machines are certified and signed for by every officer assigned that machine. They are received under signature at the registrars office. You can’t “lose” a legitimate drive.

Not to mention that many voting machines have remote access and can be programmed however the hacker wants, from the comfort of their chair and the safety of anonymity.

They are still adding illegal votes in Colorado and the numbers of illegal votes far exceed tens of thousands and yet not a word about it in the grind. Colorado stole the election as much as any other state so Trump should have it on his radar. I have watched the vote count go up every day since the 3rd and now says all counties reported at the linked site so maybe keep an eye on it while I go fishing for a few days and see if it keeps adding votes still. Locally Colorado is trying to scare us… Read more »

Just like the antifag set forest fires that never made it to Canada. I guess global warming is limited to the good ol USA.

Pretty sure there are more flash drives and other such ballots waiting in the wings to be found at the appropriate moment during counting…in Virginia and elsewhere. And we thought Covid was the enemy.
