Cases continue to come to light about the reported election fraud of Nov. 3. It has now become public that federal agents raided a house in Maricopa County, Arizona, just over a month ago as part of an investigation into the theft of voter data.
Forbes released the news on Dec. 4. The resident of the property is Elliot Kerwin, 56, a computer technician. As it turned out, the FBI seized eight hard drives, three computers and a bag of USB sticks.
At the home, located in the Fountain Hills area, agents were looking for evidence of a cyberattack that resulted in the theft of data from registered voters in Maricopa, a county that has become a key battleground in the presidential race.
According to the arrest warrant (see below), Kerwin does not yet face charges.
According to the document, the investigators were following the case of the computer intrusion that occurred in an unidentified “victim’s office” between Oct. 21 and Nov. 4, that is, in the days before the presidential election.
At the Kerwin family residence they were looking for any evidence inside the seized computers that showed they had been used to access the office’s computer network, as well as “protected voter’s information” and any indication that the stolen data had been disseminated to others.
The Maricopa Registration Office confirmed to Forbes that the voter data had been stolen and that a federal investigation was indeed underway.
In his profile on the social network LinkedIn, Kerwin identifies himself as an information technology professional.
It was the Maricopa County computer security office that identified the interference.
“Analysis by county IT security staff indicates an unauthorized individual gathered publicly accessible voter information from the Maricopa County Recorder’s Office website,” said Megan Gilbertson, a spokeswoman for the Registrar’s Office.
“Additional security controls were put in place to mitigate against this activity occurring in the future,” Gilbertson added in a statement cited by local AZcentral media.
Arizona and specifically Maricopa County are in the middle of a battle over the election result, as the Republican Party alleges fraud.
Arizona Republican Party Chairman Kelli Ward filed a petition on Nov. 24 with the Court to allow early inspection, in advance of a challenge to the 11/30 statewide election canvass, of mail-in ballot envelopes and signatures to ensure they were legally signed and not fraudulent..
The legal team of President Donald Trump’s campaign has presented a vast number of witnesses and evidence about what they believe has been massive and widespread election fraud in order to favor Democratic candidate Joe Biden.
As part of this effort, President Trump’s attorneys have requested that the Arizona Congress hold a special session to elect the voters. However, using an argument—however flimsy—that President Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, tested positive for a coronavirus, authorities announced Sunday that they will close the Legislature.
